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.

Popular Types of Self-Publishing:

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 story you’ve always wanted to tell

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 with our help and guidance and can be a valuable stepping-stone on the path to recognition as an author. Even if you don’t see yourself as the next Nora Roberts or Michael Connelly, 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.

What Our Customers Think

" I have no hesitation in recommending The Choir Press to any budding author who wants to take those first tentative steps into the world of publishing. When you go it alone you need a service that is sleek and straightforward without costing the earth."

Jonathan Foster. Author The Death Ray. The Secret Life of Harry Grindell Matthews

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.
