GET YOUR BOOK PRINTED

Congratulations! You've finally finished that book. Now you want to get it printed.  We can help. In the past, you had to find a publisher; now it can all be done online. We provide essential editorial feedback, then prepare your pages, design your cover, and upload the artwork to Amazon, so your book can be bought and read anywhere in the world. Whether it's memoirs, a novel or a reworking of your dissertation, let's get you into print.

LAYOUT AND TYPOGRAPHY

What's the best typeface for your book? Tricky, isn't it. You can check what fonts other books have used, but then what? What's the right font size for the main text? And for the running heads and the title page? And what about the line spacing? And where does the page number go? Page design can be a struggle–and it's only too obvious when you get it wrong. Leave it to us. We actually enjoy it.

COVER DESIGN

Cover design is an art. Every year, thousands of perfectly good self-published books let themselves down because their authors try to design their cover themselves, or let themselves be badly advised by vanity publishers who don't care enough. Your book deserves the best. Let us guide you towards a cover design that you can feel proud of and that readers will take seriously.

AND SO TO AMAZON

Amazon isn't a publisher–it's an international distributor. But it also runs a remarkable on-demand printing service. Rather than having to pay for hundreds of copies of your own book, and plead with your printer to make changes each time you notice a spelling mistake, with Amazon you buy only as many copies as you need–or none–but make changes as often as you like. We love it. Ask us how it could work for you.

MARKETING AND PUBLICITY

It's all very well self-publishing a book but you've also got to get the word out: books don't sell themselves. Some PR firms will take your money for sending out press releases that go straight in the bin. You need something that's tailored to you and the book. We're realistic about this and we can advise. Our £200 package will get you on the first step of  the publicity ladder.
