Author services

Being an indie writer is one way to have complete control over your book and we have heaps of experience helping writers bring their dreams and their books alive. We offer complete packages or one off services depending on your needs, and we can help make your publishing journey as professional as possible from your manuscript’s initial edit right through to pressing the button to send it off to print. We also offer business and marketing advice to writers.

If you would like to know more about our self-publishing packages and the stages we work through on a novel from start to finish, click here for our article on what we do.

If you just need a one off service, here are some of the things we offer:

Cover design
Our award-winning design team create book covers suitable for eBooks and printed books in all formats for all genres. You have full control over the final look of your cover with creative input that you can trust from our designers.

Sometimes you can be so close to your work that, no matter how much you check it, you still miss the odd mistake. We have a team of proofreaders who are experienced in checking all sorts of documents including full length novels, web copy, newspaper articles, business reports and academic work.

Typesetting and page design
The way your book looks on the screen is not the same way it will look in print. Nothing beats professional typesetting and page design. Our design team are experienced in setting paperback novels, full colour illustrated books, magazines and newspapers so whatever your project, we can make it look great.

Marketing and promotion
There’s no magic formula to hitting the big time with your book but we can help you get the basics of your marketing right. We can help you pin down a marketing plan, create promotional material such as business cards and postcards that feature your book cover, get an online presence with an author website and social media, arrange book signings and send out press releases.

Story development mentoring
Working 1:1 in one or two hour sessions, we work with you on your manuscript, covering issues such as narrative form, point of view, plot and pace, dialogue, character development and formatting. The aim is to give you someone to bounce ideas off, an extra pair of eyes over your story and some general guidance on the craft of writing. The one to one sessions involve discussion and analysis of your book, so please be aware, you will need to work on your manuscript in your own time.
The cost of our mentoring services is £25 per hour.

Marketing and distribution mentoring
Working 1:1 in one or two hour sessions, we work with you on your marketing and distribution plans. This can include setting up an online author platform utilising services such as Facebook and Twitter, setting up Amazon Author and Goodreads profiles, and getting your eBook onto Kindle, iBooks, Kobo and Nook. Where possible, we can also help out with distribution of paperbacks to local bookshops and setting up book signings.
The cost of our mentoring services is £25 per hour.
