Auckram Publishing

Auckram Publishing are a couple, Don Auckram & Sue Heazlewood of Ohoka in North Canterbury. Our property is called Tangleby. We formed the company in May 2021 with the idea of writing and self-publishing our own books. Sue has a passion for cooking and children. This passion she combined in our first publication Tails of Tangleby Gardens 11 chapters on a story of woodland creatures with 40 recipes that children could learn to cook. She soon followed this book with an adult recipe book A Table at Tangleby which has 170 recipes, with QR codes and beautiful photography of the food and scenes from Tangleby. In 2023 Auckram Publishing has published two more, A Table at Tangleby II in April and Tails of Tangleby Gardens 2 in August. Two more publications in the ‘Tails’ series and smaller version of ‘Table’ are planned.

Both A Table at Tangleby and Tails of Tangleby Gardens 2 have been shortlisted for the 2023 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards to be held in Saudi Arabia in November.  Tails of Tangleby Gardens 2 is nominated in two award categories; Oceania Children’s Books, and Illustrations and A Table at Tangleby is nominated in the Entertaining awards category.

Don is a historian and is working on his first publication, hopefully published by the end of next year. We run our own website and social media sites on Facebook and Instagram. It’s been quite a journey, huge learning curve for us both, and are keen to continue that learning to get bigger and better.

Mākaro Press

By Directory, M - R

Mākaro Press’ focus is on publishing NZ fiction, poetry and children’s books, but we also have some non-fiction titles including memoir, biography and journalism. Our books are marketed to booksellers by Greene Phoenix Marketing and distributed by PDL.

We have three imprints:
Mākaro titles are fully supported by our press in the traditional way and are spearheaded by our Mākaro Fiction titles. There are also some children’s and non-fiction titles.

HOOPLA is a poetry series fully supported by our press, releasing a set of three books every April: one by a late career poet, one by a mid-career poet, and the third by a first-timer.

The Submarine imprint is for our books published with the author contributing towards the costs. Usually this pays for the first print run, but can involve contributions to the editorial or design work depending on the project. Our Submarine books are selected for publication and designed, edited, published and marketed to the same high standards as our Mākaro titles, with Mākaro Press making the final decisions. They are a way for a small press to produce more excellent books. Submarine Poetry spearheads this group.
