What We Do

Our service is tailored to your individual requirements. We listen to what you want to achieve, and explain in clear terms what alternatives are available, which is best for you, and why. Our proposals are backed by years of experience in publishing and computer technology.

Here's how we can help you:

  • Editorial help. We can provide you with practical feedback about the style and content of your manuscript, and suggest changes that will make it more appropriate for the market you are aiming for.
  • Manuscript preparation. We can prepare your manuscript for publication by adding professional styles and typography, creating preliminary pages, and creating contents or index pages (for non-fiction manuscripts).
  • ISBN allocation. We can assign your work an ISBN from the pool of ISBNs available to us.
  • Title registration. We can register your title with the main national and international book agencies and ensure that publication details are made available to major sellers such as Amazon, Waterstones, WH Smith, etc.
  • Cover design. We can design an attractive, captivating cover for your title, suitable either for hardcopy or electronic publications. If you choose a hardcopy publication, your cover design will incorporate the spine and rear cover (including the appropriate barcode for your ISBN). See our gallery for examples of previously published titles.
  • Book production. If you choose to publish in hard copy, we can arrange to have it printed and bound to the same (or better) physical standard as any book found on any bookshop shelf.
  • Book distribution. If you choose to publish in hard copy, we can arrange to warehouse the book and despatch copies to customers or bookshops when ordered.
  • E-book production. If you choose to publish an e-book, we can format it for the most important e-book standards (notably Kindle and ePub), incorprating DRM to protect your title from unauthorised copying.
  • E-book distribution.We can ensure your e-book is displayed on Amazon (Kindle format) or in our own e-book store (ePub), and make sure you receive royalty payments as sales are made.
  • Website design. We can design and build a website to promote your work and encourage interaction with your readers. See our author website gallery for more details.
