About Us

We are not quite ready to take submissions at this time because we are working hard to create the magic by building up the vital infrastructure that goes behind any business. This takes time. Bear with us.

What sort of writers do you take on?

When we get started, we hope to hear from unpublished, unrepresented authors with a finished novel, but nothing is set on stone. Depending on the material, we may be able to accommodate other books.

Frances Flannery, Founder and Author

Frances began her career in London at Saatchi & Saatchi, a leading global communications company. Later, as In-House Graphic Designer at Brown Thomas, she designed, wrote copy and styled for brands like Bose, Sony, Philips, Jimmy Choo, La Perla, and Calvin Klein. She holds a first class H.Dip in Business and E-Commerce, and an M.Phil in Creative Writing from Trinity College Dublin.

Having pioneered Irelands first gut health clinic brand, Vitality Centre, she established The Leopold Bloom Press at 2 Grafton Street. Frances believes that impactful creative ideas can generate powerful emotional connections between book writers and their audiences.  She has written two books, Gut Happiness, and Writing Man.
