About Us

Melbourne Books is an independent publishing house founded by David Tenenbaum, who has over twenty five years of book publishing experience.

We strive to help our authors tell their stories—whether a personal journey, an imagined adventure, the history of a place or organisation or stories told through such mediums as food recipes or musical careers. Over the years we have published an array of titles, ranging from music memoirs, cookbooks to academic works and books on art, biographies, novels and personal and professional development. Our commitment to storytelling is especially evident in our annual anthology Award Winning Australian Writing, which showcases the winners of both established and small-scale short story and poetry competitions throughout the country.
If you are interested in having us publish your manuscript, head to the Submissions page for more information.
