What Our Authors Say

"I Would Certainly Work With SPP Again"

“Just to say that I am absolutely thrilled with the book. You have done a brilliant job and it was a pleasure to work with you, you are a fantastic team. The fact that you managed to get this book out in the middle of a crisis is amazing. I would certainly work with SPP again and also recommend your company to other authors.”

"Swift, Surgical, Courteous and Professionally Impressive"

“Throughout the process their responses were swift, surgical, courteous and professionally impressive. I wrote the manuscript, but SPP, with their advice, corrections and suggestions moulded it into a book. When the printed copy arrived, my wife burst into tears and hugged a copy. I love every minute of the process and cannot recommend the Self-Publishing Partnership highly enough.”

  • Vince Smith | 'Full Disclosure'

“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"

“Professional from Start to Finish”

The quality of the finished product is first-class. The artwork and finish of my latest book ‘The Waiting Game’ is exemplary, and the interior layout is precisely as I envisaged. SPP were worth every penny!”

“Very Satisfied”

“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.”
