If you’re thinking of self-publishing, or are considering how to publish a book, we can provide all the services, guidance and support needed to produce your book to a high standard.
SPP is an established independent provider, with a personal touch. We can talk through the options with you and advise what might be best for your particular work. And because every book is different, we’ll provide a specific quote reflecting your preferences.
We are very ‘hands-on’ in the way we work, giving our authors plenty of opportunity for input throughout the process.
The overall process can be seen in our Self-Publishing Options page.
Self-publishing has now become an established and credible way to publish a book. There are many examples of self-published works that have enjoyed real commercial success. But we realise there are all sorts of reasons for wanting to self-publish, and it’s not just for straightforward financial gain.
You can take a look at the options and information via the tabs above and below, and please don’t hesitate to get in touch for more information.
There are certain core procedures that we advise as standard when self-publishing. These are the fundamental processes that will result in a high-quality, professionally finished edition of your book.
We fully manage all printing and e-book production. Recent advances in digital printing ensure that we can produce good quality books in a viable and economical way.
At SPP we’re perhaps a bit fussy about it all – but the presentation really matters!
Your book will be listed for direct sale on Amazon and Waterstones / WH Smith / Foyles / Blackwell’s websites, as well as our own Brown Dog Bookshop.
Fulfilment of orders is provided via Grantham Book Services (GBS), a leading UK distributor. Or, if print-on-demand is preferred for your book, then it will be supplied via Gardners, the UK’s leading book wholesaler.
We also reach all the main e-book platforms worldwide, including Kindle, iBooks, Nook, Kobo, etc.
We’ll be pleased to discuss the possibilities with you.
