About Hornbill Publishing

Hornbill Publishing London

Hi, my name is Will Linsdell and I am an independent author and creator of Hornbill Publishing.

Arrived at Urganch, Uzbekistan, October 2018

I am passionate about travelling and you can follow my past and future travels over on my travel blog, Wilbur’s Travels.

I set up Hornbill Publishing in London initially to publish a book about another love of mine, following Manchester City Football Club.

My First Book

I followed this up with a travel book, more specifically a train travel book.

This book follows my train travels in every country in the Balkans and will be the first in a series that will also include train travels behind the old Iron Curtain and separately within the former Soviet Union.

My latest effort is my first fictional book which was published in December 2020.

Set mainly in South East Asia, Drip by Drip is a crime drama involving an average middle class English couple who unwittingly subject themselves to a terrifying ordeal.

Full details of my books can be found on the individual book pages on this site and all are or will be available from Amazon in both ebook & paperback formats.

Hornbill Publishing only features my own works at the moment, which I am actively working on increasing.

In time I hope to include other independent authors on the label and in the meantime I will be reviewing books that I read from time to time.

To kick things off I am honoured to feature a brilliant series of books on the Hidden Cities label that highlight the array of wonderful Art Deco architecture in London.

The ebooks from South London author Gregory Edwards are a painstaking labour of love and well worth a look. See the Hidden Cities page for details.
