Xoum is an independent digital publishing company founded in 2011 in Sydney, Australia, by publishing and design professionals David Henley, Jon MacDonald and Rod Morrison. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Xou Pty Ltd.

Xoum's founding members have worked for a variety of media organisations, both large and small--in sales, editorial, marketing and management--and collectively have over forty years' experience in the business.

Xoum's mission is to nurture Australian and New Zealand authors: to help them produce their very best work, and to distribute and promote this work internationally. To achieve this, Xoum uses the most up-to-date production and marketing technologies combined with traditional editorial, sales and publicity expertise. Xoum's authors come from all walks of life, but are united by two things: they are brilliant in their fields, and they exemplify Xoum's ethos of passion and integrity.

Xoum's publishing list comprises quality non-fiction and fiction for adults and children. We place an unashamed emphasis on entertainment and value for money. Xoum powers Seizure, a launchpad for some of our freshest and brightest talent, as well as Fantasica, the new home for the very best science fiction from around the world.

Xoum eBooks are available from They are also distributed internationally via Amazon, Google, the iBookstore, Kobo and other online retailers. Print editions of select Xoum titles are distributed in Australia and New Zealand by NewSouth Books and internationally by Ingram.
