Find out how we can help you self-publish your book


About Us

APPELLO PRESS was established in 2012 as the means in which to self-publish my own book 'Elvis & Ireland', and to continue as a publishing house in support of young, aspiring Irish writers. My own book was followed by the first submission, 'Photons' by Peter Donnelly, which was published in 2014. Since then, Appello Press has diverted the business to act as a facilitator for authors with aspirations of self-publishing and making their dream of seeing their own work in print a reality.

Our Publications

Elvis & Ireland

Elvis and Ireland Cover

Elvis and Ireland is the “Irish Biography” of Elvis Presley. It is the detailed story of Elvis Presley’s life and career, combined with a timeline of events in Irish popular culture and the social changes brought on by his unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll. What you will find here is just about everything to do with Elvis and his links with Ireland including anecdotes, entertaining trivia on Elvis’s connection with Ireland, his Irish chart successes, as well as areas of censorship.


Photons Cover

This first collection by a young prize-winning poet is well-named: Photons sheds fresh light on a wide spectrum of human experience in verses of striking originality and technical assurance that look back to John Donne and his contemporaries, and engage with the spirits of Modernism. The volume includes a fine translation of a Canto from Inferno that renders Dante’s bleak, dramatic vision alive in contemporary English that remains true to the spirit and form of the original Italian. In all, Photons fulfils the Romantic ambition for poetry to illuminate the ordinary and celebrate the wonder of the everyday.
