Who is Partridge Africa?

Today, Author Solutions aims to provide authors like you with the tools to share your stories locally and around the world through a new publishing imprint—Partridge Africa.

Partridge Africa recognises Africa’s rich culture and heritage—and its vast collection of oral literature. It also understands the difficulties local writers face in getting their stories published and distributed.

This is where we can help!

Partridge Africa offers a comprehensive range of publishing packages and services designed to fit each author’s individual requirements and aspirations for their book. Put simply, our ambition is to help more and more writers become published authors.

Book Formats for All Readers


Partridge Africa provides the tools to help authors share their work through as many channels and formats available so that they can reach readers wherever, whenever.


Partridge Africa recognises that Africa has a rich oral tradition with its wealth of stories that have been handed down through generations. Along with modern classics, these stories should be recorded, preserved, and published for posterity.


Electronic books are a symbol of today’s innovations. Artists, including authors, strive to produce valuable work that they hope will transcend time. However, many realise that they need to keep up with today’s fast-changing world.
