'A new beginning'

This is the first book in an exciting new science fiction trilogy, The Human Empire Story. Set in the late 22nd century, the world is recovering from a catastrophic event that has broken the US and the Western world. And a new empire has accidentally awoken an ancient evil with an intent to conquer Earth and enslave its population. Can Captain Magnus Tempest, commander of the United Nations Fleet Ship the King Canute, save Earth from an evil that is out of this world?

“After I had wrote the draft for my book I did some research on how best to get my book published. Looking at traditional versus self-publishing I did some research; a big bonus for me was that self-publishing gave me 100% control of my book and its direction in regard to how I wanted to market and promote it. It also meant that I wasn’t tied into a contract. I looked through the web and noticed that UK Book Publishing had some of the best reviews and examples of self-publishing. I gave them a call and spoke to their team; from then I had no doubts that this company was perfect for my venture. From the initial call to the finished product; they talked me through all the steps. From proof reading, editing, to cover design and getting it up on Amazon - the team talked me through every stage via phone and email. The service was faultless; I found the team professional, friendly and helpful, but most of all extremely approachable which I think is very important. They went above and beyond to help me reach my goal, and I felt that they wanted to be sincerely involved with my vision. I now have an amazing book and I don't think it would have looked as good if I had gone with a traditional publisher. So I say a big Thank You to Jay, Ruth, Judith and Dan, and to the rest of the team. ”

'When the tide goes out'

As a semi-retired geography teacher, P J Bennett has used his knowledge of volcanoes and tsunamis to pen a tense thriller, set in the Canaries, which has been well received in the market. We published the book as a print on demand paperback and ebook and the author has been marketing the novel through review sites and other platforms to great success.

“After finishing my first book, I began searching in earnest for a publisher and soon discovered that I was entering a world about which I knew absolutely nothing and for some time was completely and utterly bewildered. Then, I discovered UK Publishing and very quickly everything fell into place. From start to finish, the service that they offered was absolutely first rate and I am eternally grateful to them for turning my finished manuscript into something that I am immensely proud of. They were there for me every step of the way with advice and support and nothing was ever too much trouble for them. I will certainly use UK Publishing for my next book and would recommend any other aspiring author to do so too. ”

'Bumhead Bill'

Barry brought his manuscript and illustrations into the office and had us all in stitches with his amusing rhymes and drawings. Aimed at young children who are into toilet humour (ie all children), this book will entertain and delight time and time again.

We took Barry’s drawings and turned them into a stunning colour cover, and published the book as print on demand and ebook, and Barry is also on his second print run for selling copies through many local bookshops and outlets. He has undertaken a range of marketing activity and is working hard to raise awareness of his book and support the sales. We await the next instalment with much anticipation.

“Looking for the right Publishing company? Then look no further. From start to finish this company have got it right. A very professional service from Jay, Ruth and the team. They made what I thought would be a difficult process painless. They always respond promptly to emails and calls and they listen carefully to your questions and concerns. I will be producing more Bumhead Bill books in the future and will most certainly be using UK Book Publishing. 5 Stars from me. ”

'Brief Lives'

Sir Alistair has published many books over a lifetime of work in industry and academia, but Brief Lives is his first popular science book. It comprises a series of essays that explain the science as well as giving a biographical insight into the men and women who have helped to forge our modern world. From Einstein to Jobs, Curie to Crick, the biographies include hand-drawn portraits of each engineer, entrepreneur, philosopher or scientist, and provide an excellent starting point for those who wish to understand the significant contribution these people have made.

We edited and designed the book, set it up for print on demand and as an ebook, and handled the marketing of the book, including sending out review copies.

“When seeking a publisher for a new book, I carefully looked for one that could edit it, design it, launch it on both Amazon and as an e-book, market it and publicise it. UK Book Publishing have exceeded my expectations on all accounts. Ruth Lunn proved to be a meticulous and helpful editor, and Jay Thompson produced an excellent design and cover. Everyone involved was very professional, very helpful and very friendly. I wholeheartedly recommend them, without reservation.”

'Time Has Past'

A fascinating premise: what if you could go back in time and discover just who Jack the Ripper really was? And what if you got embroiled in this spate of gruesome murders and got a whole lot more than you’d bargained for? Graeme’s book, Time has Past (good pun) cleverly combines the known facts and timelines about the Ripper with an evocative and atmospheric tale that explores the darker side of human nature.

“I cannot express enough my gratitude for all the help I have received in the publishing of my book, from the very first consultation to the finished article the team have constantly kept me up to date on the progress and have been extremely helpful and quick to respond to my many questions with a very professional and friendly approach. All I can say is thank you.”

'Cheeky Chimp City – The Great Banana Mystery'

The stunning illustrations and the cheeky characters and storyline made this book a joy to work on. Lynda wanted the largest size book possible with print on demand, which meant that the illustrations could be full page and carry more impact. The result is a charming book that will entertain children and adults alike.

“Right from the initial contact UK Book Publishing offered outstanding professional service. From constructive feedback on layouts, editing and the final product. Judith and the team were available to chat through any details and offered some excellent advice, making this a stress free project. We are so happy with the book that we are working on number two! ”

'The Secrets We Keep'

When Aimee contacted us about publishing her book, she had already had several attempts to publish, but had lost confidence in the companies she’d approached due to their lack of communication. We were very happy to guide her through the process and get her book out into the marketplace, for The secrets we keep is confidently written and a beautiful heart-warming tale that will appeal to women the world over.

“I contacted UK Book Publishing initially with some queries about publishing and was immediately impressed with the responses I received. I had dithered for a while about publishing, so I really appreciated all the support I received for the many questions I asked! Communications were always friendly and personable. The support through the whole process was great, starting with Ruth's enthusiasm and encouragement for the manuscript, Judith's clear information on financial matters, and Jay's excellent cover design. The guidance from start to finish was outstanding and I am so thrilled with the end results.”

'The Five Stone Steps'

The Five Stone Steps masterfully blends fact and fiction to create a fascinating insight into life on Tyneside in the 1920s. Based on the memoirs of a serving policeman and the many hilarious tales told by his grandmother, John has written a highly entertaining and informative book.

As well as producing paperback  and ebook versions, we also undertook a marketing campaign for John, resulting in a number of articles in local newspapers, helping to drive book sales.

“As someone who suffers with anxiety problems I hummed and hawed a long time over whether or not to go ahead and self publish my book The Five Stone Steps. As the tales are set in South Shields and I live near Bristol I wanted a firm based in the North East and UK Book Publishing have really fitted the bill. From the very first I was impressed by their friendly but businesslike approach. Ruth gave me sound editing and marketing advice, Judith helped me through the financial side of things, and Jay did a brilliant job with the cover and layout of the book which included illustrations – Dan was always in the background with helpful advice if needed. I’d not hesitate to recommend them to anyone thinking of dipping their toe in the water of self publishing.”

'With my head in the clouds'

Gwyn Mullett has led quite a life. So much so that when he came to tell his story, he couldn’t fit it all into one book. Part one of his autobiography tracks his life from growing up as a boy fascinated by aviation, through to becoming one of the youngest pilots and flying the fastest time for British Airways across the Atlantic. With unflinching honesty, With my head in the Clouds takes you on a hilarious and at times disturbing journey, as the reader discovers just how close near misses in the sky really are, and what actually goes on in the cockpit at moments of crisis, not to mention just what the flight crews get up to when off-duty.

“It was back in 2013 that I started a search for a publishing company in the UK to publish my book. After a number of refusals and 'we will call you' answers I contacted UK Book Publishing and was presently surprised to get a friendly voice on the end of the phone. I submitted my script and they agreed to publish it. I found that in all my dealings with UK Book Publishing I have received a prompt and courteous service. As for pricing they are extremely competitive and I would not hesitate to recommend them”

'The Twisted Yarn'

The Twisted Yarn is an enchanting tale of adventure, love and companionship, weaving nursery rhymes with modern day challenges to take the reader on a voyage of discovery. We were delighted to work with Rosemary on her first novel that will appeal to all those who like a good ‘yarn’.

“My novel, The Twisted Yarn - out now as a print-on-demand/e-book - did not require close copy-editing by the time I put it in the hands of the editorial team at UK Book Publishing. Nevertheless they did a thorough job on it and found points that had been overlooked by previous editors. From that initial contact right through to the delivery of finished books I found their service prompt, efficient, in all respects, and - probably the most important - personalised and friendly. I never waited more than a day for a reply to a query and I came to feel by the end that although I had no opportunity to meet the team in person, being based in Paris myself, that I 'knew' them. I cannot speak too highly of the service they provide and of the competitiveness of their pricing. ”

'Progeny of a Killer'

J M Shorney has an outstanding track record of writing thrillers, and we were delighted she chose us to work with her for the latest book in her Aidan McRaney series. She opted for both a paperback version and ebook, and we proofread and typeset the book and designed the cover artwork.

“UK Book Publishing were the third publishers I have worked with. Suffice to say, the only ones I am happy to work with again.
The print is impeccable. The cover art was absolutely amazing. Thanks to Jay Thompson and his team. Plus their pricing packages are easily affordable.
A pleasure to work with.

'Agent Provocateur'

We had previously worked with Edmund on his ebook novel Two-faced, relaunching it with a new cover, and giving it a full edit. Agent Provocateur is Edmund’s most ambitious work to date – a highly-researched account of the Brussels resistance movement in the Great War, including the fate of the brave Edith Cavell.

This time around, Edmund decided to go for both an ebook and a hardback version, the latter with a beautifully-designed dust jacket.

“Ruth and all of the staff at UK Book Publishing have been terrific in assisting me to get my past two novels edited and professionally published in both e-Book and hardcopy versions”

'Mistaken Identity'

Molly wanted to relaunch her novel Mistaken Identity, with a stunning new cover, and get it for sale with online retailers. We proofread the book first, then typeset it and designed a cover to her brief. We also created some marketing materials for her to promote the book, and converted the novel to all e-book formats to widen its availability.

“What an amazing team and service! What made me decide to work with Ukbookpublishing.com was the telephone call I made to Ruth Lunn enquiring about self publishing services about my second novel Mistaken Identity. My call was handled in a professional manner. She promised me an interesting journey and that's how its been like with the whole team. I have enjoyed every step .
Thank you for transforming Mistaken Identity into a masterpiece. Like the book cover, the typesetting, editing, all beautifully done. I will definitely call again for my third Novel.
Thank you all at ukbookpublishing
You have my vote”

'Blind Courage'

An inspiring woman and an amazing story. Christine Deponio went blind at 16, but she hasn’t let that stop her achieving her goals in life. Indeed she has fitted so much into her life so far, that this autobiography is only Part 1.

We proof-read, typeset and designed Christine’s book, set her book up for online print and e-book sales, and printed thousands of books. Christine organised two book launches and didn’t tire of signing books at both. She has also taken every opportunity to market her book, and the proceeds are going towards purchasing a new building for the hospice she runs.
