Corona Books UK is a fledgling publishing company based here in the UK. We aim to publish the brilliant, the innovative and the quirky, and can move with a speed and alacrity which bigger beasts in the publishing world simply wouldn't dream of. We are the publishers of The Great British Limerick Book - Filthy limericks for (nearly) every town in the UK by Lewis Williams (as featured in the Daily Star see here) and of the other great books below.

More titles to be announced soon
All our books are available on Amazon worldwide. UK prices start from £6.99 for paperbacks, or just £1.99 for Kindle e-books.
And finally this month, another reminder to follow us on Twitter (or at least to check our Twitter feed - you don't need to be on Twitter to see it!) There's a lot going on at Corona Books at the moment, and the best way to keep up is to join our growing band of followers on Twitter, where you'll find us tweeting daily(ish). We only launched our Twitter account a few months ago and already have over 4,500 followers, which growing band we'd love you to join.

SCROLL DOWN FOR OUR LATEST NEWS (January 2018)
Our books are on sale in selected bookshops, and available to order from all good bookshops including Waterstones.
AND FINALLY ...
Back at the start of November, we made a pledge to tweet on Twitter and post on Facebook a limerick a day, each and every day including Saturdays and Sundays, right up until Christmas without resorting to automation. We even offered a prize to any one catching us missing a day, but despite some very late in the day postings we made it! And the most liked limerick of all turned out to be the semi-festive offering for Warminster you can find here: https://twitter.com/gb_limericks/status/944970066831003648
HAPPY NEW YEAR !
JANUARY 2018 NEWS
Wishing all our authors, stockists, readers, Twitter followers and website visitors a happy and prosperous 2018!
We're looking forward to bringing you more great titles to add to those in our small but growing catalogue in 2018 - not least to bringing you The Corona Book of Science Fiction, which YOU can be a part of - see below.
2017 was a big year for us with new titles including Mischieverse, Frogmorton Culpepper Saves the World and The Corona Book of Horror Stories. In case you'd like to catch up on all our 2017 news and events, we've created a 2017 news archive page, which brings together all our monthly news updates from last year on one page.
ANNOUNCING THE CORONA BOOK OF SCIENCE FICTION
.... coming Summer 2018
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN - deadline 12 March 2018
Later this year we will publish The Corona Book of Science Fiction, to be a collection of the best in new science fiction writing comprising between ten and twenty short stories. We want this collection to include only brilliant modern science fiction stories and to surpass in terms of quality the high standards we set ourselves with last year's The Corona Book of Horror Stories.
If you think you have written, or can write, a great science fiction story that you would like to see included in The Corona Book of Science Fiction, we would love to hear from you.
We're currently taking a short break from tweeting limericks of the day, but you can satiate your need for the finest in vulgar limericks at any time with The Great British Limerick Book, The Scottish Limerick Book or The Oxbridge Limerick Book, all of which have their own websites with sample limericks, all of which are availble in paperback and Kindle e-book format, and the latter can be yours for only £1.99 each!
