About Us

The Self-Publishing Partnership Ltd (SPP) is now an established independent provider. Our founders are Garry Manning, Douglas Walker and Roger Hibbert, who between them can boast (if that’s the right word!) well over 20 years each of publishing experience.

Under the knowledgeable guidance of Heather Morris, our Managing Editor, all our regular team of proofreaders, copy-editors and designers, etc. are professionally qualified in their particular areas of expertise.

We initially evolved out of The Manning Partnership Ltd, who for the last 18 years have successfully handled the sales, marketing & distribution needs of a number of independent book publishers, whilst
also publishing in our own right.

With our offices conveniently located in central Bath, we’re always happy to chat to our clients – either on the phone or if you can pay us a visit.


Brown Dog Books

Brown Dog Books is our publishing imprint in which we include SPP self-published titles. However it's entirely optional whether to feature the logo on your book.
