Self-publishing - frequently asked questions

Can I really print just one book at a time?

Our Just One Book (JOB) service means that an individual copy is printed and sent out to a purchaser in a bookshop (high street or internet). If you want copies to sell to friends and family, it's economical to think in terms of 25 copies at a time to keep down the carriage charge.

What can I have on the cover?

We will advise on cover design but you are free to have anything you want to supply. We will advise on purchasing stock photos or illustratons. You should supply your own title, subtitle (if any), author name, and quotes from any reviews, for the front cover. You should supply a 'blurb' to sell the book, and possibly an author's biography,  for the back cover. We put it all together, add an ISBN, barcode and spine, ready for printing.

How do I present my work to you?

Send us your wordprocessor file and any notes on the layout of the book. If the intended layout is not represented in the wordprocessor file then you can instruct us or send a sample we can work to.

Do you accept typed manuscripts?

Yes. We will scan and optically character read your manuscript, quoting a fixed fee for the work.

How much does it cost to produce an e-book?

If you instruct us, we generate an e-book version of your book and send book data out to the e-book aggregators so that they can resell it. When your e-book is purchased for download (access limited to one user by digital rights management) you receive payment just as with the printed copy. It's the modern way to publish! If appropriate we can version your book for Amazon’s Kindle so that it has hyperlinked contents and flows properly on different devices, from smartphones to ipads.

When is a good time to publish?

The book trade works around various key sales periods. We will advise on timing, how to contact your local bookshops for launches and signings, and how to publicise your new book. Christmas is always a key sales period and there’s nothing like giving your own book as a present.
