What Our Customers Think

" At every stage you consulted, gave gentle advice and kept me up to date with progress. I could not have asked for more. What you predicted happened and the final appearance is totally down to your skills and I shall always be grateful to you for that. If ever I can help in any way do please ask; I would be more than happy to recommend you to anyone."

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.

Unlike some publishing companies, we offer a personal service. You will always be dealing with a named personal contact.
