We can prepare your manuscript for the publisher or help you self-publish.

Assuming you have a publisher:

  • We undertake to ascertain exactly what your publisher would like us to do for your book. (Publishers invariably have a house style to which they want all their authors to conform.)
  • We make the preliminary pages and add an index (if you want one).
  • We professionally copy-edit and typeset the book.
  • We send you and your publisher a set of proofs to ensure that you are both happy. In the event of a more comprehensive copy-edit being considered necessary, we are happy to send you a sample chapter for approval in advance.
  • We charge you directly (unless the publisher has agreed to pay us) and then send the finished files to the publisher to check before passing them on to the printer.

For more information see the section: Help and Guidance.

Price and schedule – obviously these vary depending on the project. Contact us for an estimate.

If you want us to publish your book:

  • We can publish your book (although we do not undertake marketing or distribution). If you want your manuscript professionally turned into a book, with any number of copies, this is the option for you. We maintain high publishing standards and ensure that all content meets our quality criteria before release. If we do not think your book is suitable for us, we can advise on alternatives, including how you could self-publish.
  • We will sort out the ISBN.
  • We make sure the copyright libraries get their obligatory copies.
  • We can arrange a professional cover designer to create an original cover for your book.
  • We will negotiate with the printers.
  • You will own the copyright. All profits from sales go to you. We just charge a flat fee to get the job done and the books are sent to your address.
  • Alternatively, we can upload the book to Amazon. It will be listed on the Amazon website and they will print and deliver the book worldwide. We can also produce a Kindle version. This is a great option if you want your book to be accessible to everyone.
