What is self-publishing?

Self-publishing is where an author publishes without using a publishing company. This usually entails authors doing everything for themselves, from editing to promotion. With our help the process becomes much easier, and the end-product far more satisfying.

why should you
self-publish?

There are lots of good reasons to self-publish your book.

Here are seven reasons why self-publishing may be perfect for you

1

Your book – the way you want it

Your book is a reflection of you the writer. Self-publishing gives you complete control over the direction of your book. The decisions are exclusively yours and are not limited by third-parties with interests and intentions that differ from your own.

2

Protecting your rights as an author

As a self-publisher, you own the rights to your book. If you use a traditional publishing house, they own the rights. They may for example decide to stop printing and distributing your book, preventing you from printing additional copies until you purchase the rights back. We simply produce your book, you retain all the rights.

3

Short print runs

You may only require 50 or 100 copies of your book. With the high-tech, modern print technology that we have, we can provide you with this unique service.

4

Testing the market

Because your book may be for a niche or specialised interest, self-publishing can be a great way of ‘testing’ the market. A small amount of printed books can for example serve as an indication of how successful a larger quantity of books would be. Some authors request ‘review copies’ for them to present to publishing houses.

5

A niche market

The book may appeal to a niche or specialised market (e.g. the history of your local sports club) and therefore may not be of interest to a large publishing house.

6

Time

Going through a publishing company usually takes much longer, with authors having to wait their turn in long publishing catalogues. Choose to self-publish with us however and your book can be ready for the book stores and online within just four weeks of us receiving your print-read files.

7

Re-ordering

We store your book digitally, which means we can reprint it for you at any time in the future if you wish.
