Establishing our own private publishing division enables us to take a captivating story and either launch it separately or adapt it into a film or television series. By collaborating with the entertainment industry, we offer a network of talent and contacts unmatched by other publishers. If we choose to adapt a book into a motion picture, our Film Division enables us to distribute the book prior to or simultaneously with the release of the movie. Sometimes a novel or series will be developed for television or cable programming, a project that will be handled by our Media Division. The adaptation of a book into a screenplay is relatively seamless—developing a production package, securing funding and planning the theatrical release.

Devonfield Publishing is continually tracking the industry to stay current on trends and technical advancements. While traditional hardcover and paperback books will always have a market share, digital books are also becoming popular, including Kindle by Amazon, iBook by Apple and Nook by Barnes & Noble. Even academic and educational texts are now being delivered through eBooks. Market research suggests that by 2018, over half of all books, magazines and newspapers will be distributed digitally. Nevertheless, the story is what is important and quality content never goes out of style.
Our first release in Spring 2018 is the exciting middle-school book series, Britfield & the Lost Crown.
Britfield & the Lost Crown is a fast-paced adventure novel that transports the reader from the smoldering crags of Yorkshire, through the heart of England, and finally to the shores of Dover. Creating an interactive world of mystery and adventure, culture and education, Britfield is about friendship, family, loyalty and courage. The first in a five-book series, Britfield intends to educate as well as entertain readers by weaving geography, literature, architecture and history into the plot. Children will not only embrace the action-packed chapters, but will enjoy the authenticity of a story with real locations and realistic events: no one flies, has magical powers or has a thirst for blood. Britfield builds with intensity and intrigue, sacrifice and revelations. Book II takes place in France and Switzerland; Book III, in Italy; Book IV, in South Africa; and Book V, in China.
Continuing the series, Britfield & the Rise of the lion will be released in the fall of 2019.
Taking place throughout France, Tom and Sarah face an entirely new enemy, a nefarious and clandestine group with unlimited resources. With their ultimate destination as the castle Chambord, Tom and Sarah must first navigate through Paris streets and over rooftops, Norte Dame, the Eiffel Tower, and the Louvre, chased by an assassin determined to wipe out any potential threat to the British throne. From old friends to new allies, this intense adventure novel has twists and turns, unexpected betrayals and lifechanging revelations.
