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.

Types of self-publishing

Regardless of the subject matter, self-publishing a book makes it easier than ever to get your writing published. With the digital printing revolution, small printing runs and the experience of publication partners such as The Choir Press you can easily self publish poetry, a factual book, or the novel you always said you’d write. Here are a few kinds of self-publishing that we regularly handle:

  • Non-fiction – we’re experienced non-fiction publishers
  • Poetry – profound thoughts in small packages
  • Children’s books – we’ll  simplify self-publishing a book for kids
  • Novels – the next million-seller

Publishing non-fiction

Many non-fiction publishers, including us, agree that self-publication of non-fiction is ideally suited to specialised, easily-targeted subject areas. If you have personal memoirs, specialised knowledge or a burning desire to write the ultimate ‘how to’ book on your specialist subject, non-fiction lends itself to the many advantages of self-publication – and it’s been one of our specialities for years.

Self publish poetry

Because poetry is such a specialised niche area, some commercial publishers might see it as too risky, especially for a new writer. Maybe you’re frustrated by responses from the publishing Establishment, or you like the idea of ‘testing the waters’ with a few copies of your book? Either way, our experience of self publishing poetry could be the key to your dream coming true.

Self publishing children’s books

This is one of the most notoriously competitive and hard-to-break-into publishing sectors. But don’t let that deter you. When you publish yourself, short runs and relatively low up-front costs make the process less risky. Whether you’re writing for your grandchildren or contemplating self publishing childrens books for commercial gain, we’ll help you.

Publishing a novel

The novel is many people’s idea of ‘the book they’d like to write’. And as many aspiring novelists discover, getting published is a huge challenge. But it’s achievable and there are famous examples of successful authors who launched their careers through self-publication. Even if you don’t see yourself as the next Jilly Cooper or Stieg Larsson, how about publishing your novel for family and friends?

Thinking of self publishing a book? We can help

Have you written a novel, an esoteric non-fiction work, a beautiful volume of poetry or a beguiling children’s book? If you write in these areas, or even if you are shortlisting science fiction publishers or cook book publishers, we offer the proven publishing experience, skills and friendly personal service that non-fiction publishers who are going it alone deserve on the way to self-publication.
