Independent Publishing Consultancy
I greatly enjoy helping authors become published. I offer numerous services including editing, cover design, formatting the interior for print and ebooks, finding the right publishing option and marketing.
I am an experienced independent publisher, with over 60 books available within The Rhymers’ series. I have assisted many authors in getting their book published.
Professional Publishing Services
There are so many publishing options available now that it can be overwhelming. That is where my professional services come in. I will guide you through these options and help your book dream become a reality. It is exciting to report that with the quality of print-on-demand services today, you really can achieve this within an affordable budget.
Honesty, integrity, diligence
If you work with me you can be assured of my honesty, integrity, diligence, attention to detail and fair price. I offer a free initial consultation to assess whether I would be right to work with you.
Throughout the entire process, I will always give you as much information as possible, with a view to educating you in the art of independent publishing and thus empowering you for future projects. I also offer copy and structural editing services.
I limit the number of projects I take on at one time so I can give appropriate attention to each one.
I offer website development as an optional extra to my publishing package. Many authors require a website to share news of their work. See my specific Website Development page for further details.
Each project is different so after discussing your book needs, your expectations and goals, and reading a sample of your work, I will give you an estimate.
I also offer a consulting agreement for those who may just need some initial direction or occasional advice throughout their project.
If you would like to speak and take advantage of my free initial consultation then please email me email@example.com.
I am the Project Co-ordinator, co-author, designer and editor for the Harbledown book series with Catching Lives homeless charity in Canterbury, Kent. I have offered extensive advice to the board of trustees on the process they need to go through to realise the publication of their books and provided invaluable advice feeding into successful funding applications. I have tutored a number of the homeless clients in the use of the Adobe Professional suite for the publication of their books. Their first book, Harbledown Hope, was published in 2017.
I have worked with Pat to turn her gorgeous story into a book that she can be immensely proud of. This charming tale explores God in creation and God in the ordinary. It is a wonderful conversation starter between child and adult about the mysteries of our Creator. The illustrations in the book are beautiful. I have liaised with Pat every step of the way and provided clarity to the many questions she had within the complex world of publishing.
One Hundred Violets
I worked with the family of Violet Wooldridge to bring together a beautiful one hundred page tribute through stories, testimonies and photographs of her incredible life. This is just one of the many Memory Books I have produced for others.
What’s In The Box?
I have helped to publish my father’s first collection of poetry that includes work spanning his lifetime. “What’s In The Box?” was the starting point for poetry lessons with primary children across Malcolm’s teaching career. Yet the children never found out what was in the box – will you?
Praise Past Pain – Hannah Buller
I worked with Joan’s family to enable Joan to fulfil her dream for her beautiful poetry and illustrations to be published. In May 2016, Joan’s charming book “Ramblings of an Old Biddy” was released and has given enormous pleasure to her and her family.
I collaborated with my daughter to help her realise her dream of seeing her first book in print. It is a charming story of a bear’s search for his underwear, full of colour, humour and engaging rhymes.
I provided structural editing advice to Debbie Rogers at the early stages of her publishing dream. It was lovely to join Debbie at the launch of her book and share in her excitement.
