Welcome to Castles in the Air Press!

Castles in the Air is a boutique, independent Press that is focusing specifically on publishing E-books.


Our name's are Orla & Clare and we are very excited to announce the launch of our brand new publishing press.

We met while studying English Literature in University and have both worked and been heavily involved in the Irish publishing industry ever since.

Our shared love of stories has always been a driving force behind everything we do and we hope to share that passion with you and the world.

The name Castles in the Air comes from a quote from the book Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. A book that has inspired and influenced us both over the years. This quote in particular is close to our hearts as it is about conspiring big dreams (or, castles in the air) and chasing them.

By launching this press we are chasing our dreams and we hope to help you chase yours in the journey to becoming a published author.

We look forward to hearing from you.
