Become a Published Author the Easy Way
We believe that most people, and very probably you, have experiences and expertise that are uniquely valuable and deserve to be shared with a wider audience. One way to do that is to write and publish a book but most potential authors are put off because they think it is difficult, time consuming and possibly expensive.
What we do is make writing and publishing your own book as easy, straightforward and economical as possible.
If you are confident with using computers and the internet you would probably prefer to use our on-line methods.
Alternatively, you might prefer to use our printed guide which enables you to minimise the use of computers and the internet to a level that suits you.
Either way we provide packages that guide you through the complete end-to-end writing and publishing process. This enables you to concentrate on the writing while we take care of the rest including all the production, distribution and marketing activities. We don’t just stop at publication. When you publish with us your book will be promoted on a regular basis using social media and other methods.
The full set of packages are listed below.
We recommend you start by buying the basic package for £99 which may be all you need. If later you wish to upgrade you just pay the difference.
Here is what we can offer you…
