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 publish a novel yourself

What made you think about how to publish a novel? We’re all supposed to have a book in us and for many it’s a fictional work. Perhaps getting a novel published is a one-off challenge? Maybe you just want copies for family and friends? Or perhaps it’s a step towards a new career?

Whatever your reason, traditional routes to publishing a novel can be time-consuming, and for many, ultimately fruitless. If your approaches to publishers and agents have drawn a blank, or you simply want to keep full publishing control, we offer the skills and experience to get your novel published:

  • Professional editorial support
  • Book design
  • Other publication services
  • Print expertise
  • Advice about your marketing and promotion – knowing ‘how to publish a novel’ is more than just creating a book

First write your novel

Before you publish a novel you’ve got to write it; this can be the hard or the easy part! A great story, engaging characters and page-turning quality are vital – along with the persistence to start with a blank page and keep writing until the end. (But if you’re planning to self-publish, don’t make it too long or it will be too expensive to be saleable.)

Novel publishers offering editorial and other services

The plot and characters are yours, but our experienced editorial team can help polish your manuscript. As all novel publishers know, properly edited manuscripts speak volumes about your professionalism. They also create a solid foundation for the other publishing services, such as page layout, cover design and ISBN issue, that we offer on the way to getting your novel published.


As experienced novel publishers and printers, we’ll print your book for you too. One of the widely-recognised benefits of self-publishing novels using our print on demand service is avoiding the up-front costs traditionally associated with long print runs. If your sales develop successfully we can advise on the best way forward with longer print runs using our long run book printing service.

Marketing and promotion: a key part of publishing a novel

There’s no substitute for your own hard work and marketing effort, but with years of publishing experience, we’re ideally positioned to give practical advice on the best way to market your book.

While there’s no magic formula for commercial success with publishing a novel, our experience, professional team and personalised service means your book will enjoy the best possible start in life. Want to know more about how to get a novel published? [Please contact us today.]
