Elgar Estates Publishing’s first book was Today’s Golfer: New Courses Guide, when Doug Eaton pitched award-winning golf course designer George Oldham to produce a comprehensive guide to new courses. His second book London Plaques: 5 Fascinating Walks, with a foreword by Rt.Hon. Mark Field MP, takes the reader around Mayfair, Marylebone and St.James viewing the homes of the great and the good. The third book Lest We Forget: The Most Outstanding First World War Memorials was published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War. All of these have been sold through major retailers and independents as well as on Amazon.
The company is now working on three exciting books and is looking for a creative sales agent to optimise sales throughout the UK. Following the success of ‘Lest We Forget’, The 100 Pubs You Must Visit features all the Grade I and II* pubs in the UK, with scores of excellent photographs and fascinating Pub Trivia. Doug gives talks to social groups and is a Guest Lecturer on cruise ships, and the most popular talk is Madcap Ideas:Quirky Inventions. The third new book is The Cavern Club in the 1950’s and 1960’s in which the many famous scousers who visited the iconic club are interviewed. They include Lynda la Plante, Edwina Currie, Tom Baker, Ricky Tomlinson, Glenda Jackson, Alison Steadman, Willy Russell, Alan Bleasdale, and many many more
Both existing books and – initially – three new titles, which cover an eclectic range of subjects, ranging from Pubs to Humour and Pop Music

There are still opportunities to increase the distribution of the existing titles, but the new three books will appeal to a wide audience. The agent should be somebody who is excited by the themes of the books – a book on PUBS will appeal to members of CAMRA as well as people who are interested in history, architecture and culture. MADCAP IDEAS will be a great present with its humorous approach to the world of crazy inventions. THE CAVERN CLUB is the iconic Liverpool club where The Beatles and the Merseybeat started, and the list of contributors is mind-blowing.
