We are here to help, advise and take the edge off the dreaded self-promotion part of publishing a book. Launching in December 2009, we think we could have been the very first bespoke digital publisher to launch in the UK. We keep a close eye on the ever-changing developments in digital publishing.

We do appreciate that online isn’t for everybody, though, and we publish complete techno-phobics (there is even a typewriter in our midst!) who happen to be brilliant writers, as well as great writers who are bloggers and social media adepts.
