About Us

Founded in 2015, Marang Publishers (Pty) Ltd is a multi-genre book publishing service provider and school textbook distributor located in Johannesburg, South Africa.

We are here to assist authors who have decided to tread the self-publishing path. We have a range of affordable products and services, and are currently helping authors from South Africa and the rest of Africa.

So no matter where you are we can help you. At Marang Publishers, we understand that most self-published and first-time authors are either on tight budgets, or don't know how to get their books in print, or perhaps both. We use the latest Industry-standard software for all our publishing, graphic design and ebook conversions.

We have a huge passion in publishing books that readers rave about by discovering and nurturing new talented authors.


So, you have written a book…..

Or have you just got a great idea for one?


  • Planning to write a book?
  • Just started it?
  • About to finish it?
  • Don't know where to turn next?
  • Need to get it published soon in print?


We are fully aware of the difficulties faced by new authors

If you're a first-time author, then only one thing distinguishes you from the professional ones. It's not about talent, it's not dedication… but for the simple reason that first-time writers will have difficulties in getting their manuscripts published.


Our Approach

At Marang Publishers, we look to nurture new and rare African talent. That aim has gained us our widely recognised reputation as one of the leading publishing houses in South Africa. The strength of our company rests on the satisfaction of our clients, authors and the quality of the books we produce, distribute and trust to improve the quality of education in our schools. Marang Publishers have vast experience in navigating the publishing industry. It is a full one-stop shop service for your manuscript.


School Books:

In our quest for giving world class education at the the learner’s doorstep, we have become a major distributor of curriculum and library books, starting at pre-school level through middle school and reaching the higher secondary level.

We cater to the key curriculum requirements of South African schools and supply both Secondary and Primary school textbooks. These are in English, IsiZulu, IsiXhosa, Sepedi, SeSotho and more languages, and include literature, fiction, workbooks, grammar books, classroom posters and teacher’s guides.


We always maintain our deep expertise in logistics management to deliver books on time, thus we ensure that we play our part in ensuring prompt service delivery to our nation’s education system.

Private schools, bookshops and libraries can place orders directly with us and enjoy bulk order discounts, while public schools can place their orders through The Department of Education. We deal with a large number of authors and can assist schools with any requirement of new titles and samples for evaluation.
