Trade Pricing

We pay royalties on print on demand books monthly and because the royalty is calculated by using the trade cost of printing your book you will receive a bigger royalty from us than under almost any other publishing arrangement.
Personal Service
With The Choir Press you’ll always be dealing with a named contact on a one to one personal basis who will be knowledgeable about your book. You can phone and visit us.  We've helped to publish 1000s of books for publishers of all kinds from sole traders to international publishing groups covering almost every genre.

How to Copyright a Book

Under UK law your work is protected as soon as you have written it. The Choir Press will prepare the copyright notice in the prelim pages of your book to conform with current publishing practice and declare your copyright.

You can find a lot of information about UK Copyright Law by clicking this link. The site enables you to upload or post documents to register your work.  The site is a witnessing service i.e. they act as witness to the evidence of the content and the date of your work and there is lots of useful information there. Their fees start at £39 for 5 years.

However there are a few things you might like to consider:

(1) The UK Copyright Service website has the look and feel of a government department when it fact it is a privately run organisation with a share capital of £300.

(2) You could lodge the documents with your bank or solicitor.

(3) The site thoroughly rubbishes the idea that a secure way to protect your work is to post a sealed copy to yourself using a signed-for service. They state that it would be possible to cheat and insert the documents later. Well, they would say that wouldn’t they. They have a vested interest in discouraging that practice. I think you could seal the package in a secure fashion and retain the posting slip and the unopened package when you receive it. Under no circumstances should you open it except under legal guidance in the event of a copyright dispute.

It is a statutory requirement that publishers send a copy of their book to the British Library. The British Library does not charge a fee and we will send a factsheet to you as we approach the publication date of your book.
