What Our Customers Think

"I was a naive amateur when I wrote my first and only book, so I approached the Choir Press in Gloucester for their help to enable me to complete my autobiography and hopefully get it published. They could not have been more supportive. Without their advice and guidance my book would have never seen the light of day. Sales of 'Right Away!’ have greatly exceeded my expectations and to date the feedback that I have received from readers has all been favourable. Therefore I consider that my book has been a success, but only because of the teamwork and collaboration I experienced while working with the Choir Press."

Steve Davies. Author Right Away!

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.
