Founded in 2005 by Tom Chalmers, Legend Press is an independent book publisher specializing in original fiction, crime thrillers, and a Legend Classics series. Legend Press has been shortlisted for numerous awards as a company and also for individual books.
As part of its platform, London-based Legend Press has built a global sales and distribution network with the target of reaching readers in multiple formats across the world. It is also passionate about licensing its content to publishers, whether into different languages, formats such as audio and large print, or into key English language markets.
Much of its success has been due to a keenness to innovate and to be a market leader for new initiatives. And as its ultimate mission, Legend Press aims to produce books of the highest quality, provide a global platform for authors, and inspire and thrill book readers around the world.
In 2023 Legend Press announced a partnership with South African publisher Blackbird Books, intending to help bring more African literary voices to a wider global audience.
In February 2023 Legend Times launched its podcast Another Book Podcast.
