Victorian Secrets is an independent publishing house dedicated to producing high-quality books from and about the nineteenth century. We’ve also have a tiny imprint called Twentieth Century Vox. We have no full-time staff and the press is a labour of love. Mindful that large publishers are interested only in canonical authors, we devote much of our free time to ensuring that important novels aren’t lost to posterity.
If you’d like to support our work, please buy some books! We can keep publishing titles only if people keep buying them. You can also help by asking your library to buy copies or including one of our titles on an undergraduate reading list.
We are not currently accepting submissions.
The people behind Victorian Secrets are:
Dr Catherine Pope – Managing Director
Catherine is the founder of Victorian Secrets and is responsible for most aspects of its operation: typesetting, production, cover design, promotion, running the website, and being nice to authors. When she doesn’t have her beak stuck in a Victorian novel, Catherine works as a trainer in software engineering.
Dr Tanya Izzard – Consulting Editor
Tanya is a full-time professional indexer and also provides lots of editorial and administrative support to Victorian Secrets. Her doctoral thesis was on ‘E M Delafield and the Feminist Middlebrow’.
