I am excited to announce that the publisher for my next work of non-fiction The Forest Guide will be Bloomsbury Wildlife.

I had the privilege of working with Bloomsbury Publishing when writing The New Sylva and have always since hoped to work with the company again. As an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing, and as the preeminent publisher of wildlife writing, Bloomsbury Wildlife was always in my sights as I developed my proposal for The Forest Guide.

Respected and well-loved, Bloomsbury Wildlife is the proud home of many of the best and most passionate nature writers around. With books on everything from mushrooms to marine mammals and ducks to dinosaurs, readers of all levels and interests are sure to find something engaging among our extensive range of natural history titles.

I am also able to announce that The Forest Guide will be published in a series covering the copses, woods, and forests of Britain, starting with Scotland. Admittedly, I’m a little trepidatious about the amount of work before me, but I’m equally excited by the opportunity of visiting old silvan haunts and unexplored natural wonders across Scotland over the course of the next 12 months. Publication is timetabled for 2023.


About The Forest Guide

The Forest Guide is a project of author Gabriel Hemery who is working on a series of guidebooks featuring the woodlands of Britain, from the largest forest to smallest copse. The idea is to celebrate their beauty, purpose, history, current nature, and ownership. Ultimately the author aims to reconnect society with the natural world.

The copsewoodforest.com website has been created to enable people to contribute to the project, whether landowners or members of the public. Contributors can also become a Supporter or Book Patron, not only supporting the development of the books, but having the satisfaction of their name (or a chosen giftee) listed in the published books.
