About Us

Experienced Publishers


Sabrestorm Stories offers hybrid publishing, ghostwriting and editorial services. It is run by Ian Bayley, an author, graphic designer, photographer and publisher (Sabrestorm Publishing) and Penny Legg, an author, publisher, author coach, lecturer and journalist. 

Genuine Interest


 We know there are many companies out there offering a bewildering range of publishing options.  

As a traditional publisher, Ian has had to disappoint hopeful authors whose manuscripts were not up to scratch. As a writing tutor (The Writers Bureau, Age Concern), author coach (Christine Kloser, USA), university lecturer (Creative Writing/Media Writing, University of Portsmouth; Business Writing, City, University of London), journalist, publisher (MA in Publishing, Kingston University, 2018) and author (twelve traditionally-published non-fiction titles) Penny has worked with those with tales to tell to help them bring their work to life. Together, Ian and Penny know the pitfalls and wish to help steer story tellers to publication. We are ethical publishers and will not publish anything that is not worthy of publication. 

One-to-One Service


 Sabrestorm Stories is different. We are a small publisher and we believe that personal service and beautiful products mean a lot. We work one to one with our clients and really get to know them so that we can produce books that are the best they can be. If you have a story to tell, for your family or for a wider audience, Sabrestorm Stories offers a range of services geared especially to you.
