Welcome to Earlswood Press

Earlswood Press is a micropublishing business, run by me, author and publisher Bill Munro. I publish the stories from the motor industry that are 'hidden in plain sight'; the stories you know of, but know little about. 

Titles in Print

I have three titles currently in print; two that you can buy directly through this website and a third from Amazon KDP.  Click on the cover image of the title you’re interested in to find out more and also to buy.

I also have two titles in production. Scroll down to find out more about them and sign up to the mailing list to get a discount on the cover price when they are due for release.

Please note that for economic reasons, I do not offer Traction for Sale directly through Amazon, though you may find other third party sellers offering this title. Please compare their prices with the prices you see on this website!
