Extremis Publishing is an independent publishing house based in the heart of Scotland which is dedicated to producing the highest quality of non-fiction in the subject areas of the arts, media and culture. We are committed to the delivery of a publishing programme which is innovative, original and wide-reaching.
Founded by brother and sister publishing team Tom and Julie Christie in 2015, Extremis Publishing sources and promotes new writing by its authors with the goal of reaching a readership both in the United Kingdom and throughout international markets. We are dedicated to building the company’s portfolio of texts as we diversity our catalogue of publications.
In September 2021, Extremis Publishing was named Independent Publishing Company of the Year at the Scotland Prestige Awards 2021/22, presented by Corporate LiveWire. The judging panel based their decisions upon criteria such as service excellence, quality of the products provided, innovative practices, value, ethical and sustainable methods of working, and consistency in performance.
Extremis Publishing regularly gives public presentations throughout Scotland, and often takes part in Q&A sessions about the work of the company as well as arranging author events and book signings throughout the year. The company also produces a monthly podcast and frequent video features, using a multimedia approach to promote our authors and their work worldwide.
‘Julie and Tom Christie embrace the world of writing, publishing and blogging with relish, and their positive attitude is contagious. It has been nothing but a pleasure working with them.’
Edward Small, Lecturer in Creative Writing and Public Engagement Officer, The University of Dundee.
‘Extremis Publishing can help every writer. They know every aspect of the publishing business, from commissioning to sales promotion.’
Dr Elspeth King, Director Emerita, The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum
‘Absolutely no doubt that Scotland has some rare talent: Tom and Julie Christie are living proof, and seeds hopefully of a new Age of Enlightenment for us – at least north of Edinburgh. Extremis Publishing is a professional and highly competent Scotland-based publishing enterprise.’
Robert A. Cairns, Managing Director, Heart 200 Scot Ltd.
