THE BATTLE FOR SELF-BELIEF

 

There is a book in you ... a good one.

 

You may have it in your head, or in your bottom drawer, abandoned, after you put your heart and soul into it. There may be a big part of you that doesn't believe it could ever sell, and be a real pleasure for others. Well, it's time to stop doubting and start believing. 

Step One

Prepare

 

We commission a professional fiction/non-fiction editor to examine your manuscript, line by line, in pursuit of excellence. Style, sense, flow, pace, consistency ... everything is scrutinised, in consultation with you, and the result is a highly polished manuscript.

Step Two

Publish

 

We hand your manuscript to professional copy-editors, proofreaders and typesetters, while cover designers go to work on bringing your visual ideas to life. We then send the typeset manuscript to printers, while we set up the e-book version and publish both e-book and paperback. 

Step Three

Promote

 

We help you to launch, distribute and market your newly published book for the first time, by approaching traditional and new media to spread the word. By this point we will have helped you to fulfil your dream as an author – finding and connecting with your readers.
