Self Publishing

Have you ever thought about self publishing your own book but had problems going through a mainstream publisher, or not wanted to give your hard earned royalties to anyone else?

Today, self publishing is easier, more practical and affordable than ever before, in fact, anyone can do it; all that’s needed is a book, the desire to get it published and the determination to follow it up.

We are here to help you through the entire process of self publishing, removing any obstacles (and because we’ve been in this business for a while, we know exactly what they might be), so that you can gain better access to success.

You have complete control over your title(s), own their copyright and reap the royalties to each, deciding on when and where it’s published, and exactly what direction you would like it to go in.

We can help to advise and provide all the information you need to begin in self publishing to make the entire process less daunting, more exciting, and to ensure that you get what you deserve from your hard work.

Prepare for the printing.

Now it’s time to get your book printed. This is where things can get a bit complicated. Our aim is to make this process as stress free as possible. Especially if you are looking to produce the files yourself. We require Print ready PDF files for both text and cover. Ideally with crop marks included, and at least 10mm white margins all round.

The cover file should have 3mm bleed added all round. Images included in the text pages? These need to extend to the edge of the page with 3mm bleed. Images should also be supplied at 300dpi (minimum).

Require help? with laying out text or some design options for your cover? We can recommend designers, who we have worked with for a number of years with budgets to suit everyone.

Check all your pages.

It is very important once you have submitted your book that you proof check your pages. With printed books there is no room for error. So, it’s really important that you check your pages before you commit to printing. We give you the option to check your book proof either as loose printed pages or as a PDF. We would always recommend the printed proof as this gives you a better indication of the final product. However, timings may be tight, so a PDF would work better in this instance.

Once you’re happy with the proof it’s over to us!
