Our Story:

In 1996, I produced and self-published my own poetry and short stories, and db publishing was soon established in response to requests from local authors to publish their work too.

In our first 10 years we produced for Western Australian authors 100 titles, amounting to 15,000 books. Many of these titles are available here.

db books is a division of db publishing proudly owned by myself, Dave Bowen*, ably assisted by my ever-tolerant wife, Rosie**, also a published author.

We began trading in pre-loved books in 2003 on eBay. By 2006 we had a vShop on Oztion (now defunct) and soon decided it was time to trade worldwide through our own on-line store.

Avid readers both, with a long-time love of writing too, it was almost inevitable we should trade in books and their natural partners, movies and music.
