What our authors say:

“Stuck to our budget and beat our very tight timetable”

“After being let down by a major academic publisher, we were delighted to come across SPP. Our book is a chunky 120,000-word text aimed at directors and trustees. SPP stuck to the budget and beat our very tight timetable. We were delighted with the finished product and the SPP publishing ‘model’. We have no hesitation in recommending their services to other authors.”

Michael Willis,

"The Resilient Director"


“I now have a beautiful book to show for all their hard work”

“Coming across SPP solved all my literary problems! Being ‘IT-illiterate’ and having lost my agent, my novel lay around gathering dust. No way could I self-pub by myself, but Douglas and Heather took over. Kindly and efficiently they managed everything and I now have a beautiful book to show for all their hard work. They made it all seem so simple - I’m tempted to write another!”

Gillian Kersley,

"The Other Room"


“Can’t speak highly enough of their professionalism”

“Would encourage anyone to consider their self-publishing options”

“I would not hesitate to recommend SPP”

"I decided to use SPP after carefully considering their services against several other self-publishing companies, based on the degree of personal attention I felt I would receive, and that the company was not part of a conglomerate. I have been very satisfied with the service, and was especially pleased with the cover design by Kevin Rylands which captured the essence of the book so perfectly. I would not hesitate to recommend SPP to others wishing to self-publish."
