'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. ”

'Last Man Standing'

A fascinating and comprehensive account of the journey of a small Welsh seaside cricket club, Llandudno, from its small beginnings to the golden years of the 21st century, spanning 175 years. This beautiful hardback book includes research from the archives, match reports and stats, newspaper clippings and snippets of humorous anecdotes. A great read for any cricket fan.

 

“The finished product is amazing. Judging from the feed back I am getting during a feed back marketing exercise the quality and professional high standard of text setting and the striking design cover is unquestionably favourable. Both Jay and Ruth were so friendly, enthusiastic and helpful throughout every stage of the process in producing the book. Both highly skilled in their work. It will be a privilege to work with them again on my second book in the near future.”

'The Wharf Butcher'

Mike came to us initially for editing services. He had submitted his thriller to a literary agent, who liked it but advised him to rewrite and rework a number of aspects. After taking the edited manuscript back to the agent, Mike then decided to self publish his novel with us, so we designed a cover and set the book up for sale through print on demand.  The Wharf Butcher is a fast-paced thriller set on Tyneside, that pits the combined forces of a criminal profiler and highly ranked detective against a killer with the mind of a child. Can they get inside his head and stop him in his tracks?

“Judging from the feedback, UK Book Publishing has done a first rate professional job on my first novel – The Wharf Butcher. From start to finish, everyone on the team has been extremely helpful and supportive towards me throughout. Jay Thompson produced a stunning design cover, and Ruth Lunn proved to be a meticulous and helpful editor. It will be a privilege to work with them again.”

'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.”

'The Pogues: The best night out in town'

A book that beautifully combines humour and pathos, this is much more than a fan’s perspective of life following The Pogues. Recounting numerous scrapes and adventures, Calum Bruce’s book will appeal to Pogues diehards as well as anyone interested in a good story, told well.

We edited Calum’s book, designed a cover for him, typeset the book and set it up for print on demand. As well as selling online, Calum also got a bulk quantity of books printed, and took them with him to a number of Pogues concerts. His marketing included setting up a website, connecting with fans on Facebook and other social media, and organising media coverage.

“From the very start, I was comfortable working with some really genuine people who believed in my writing. They delivered in every way, advising me throughout superbly, and even managed to complete my project to a tight time schedule. I’m both thrilled and delighted. The end result, simply, is that my book is doing well. I’m so pleased that I chose to work with Ruth, Jay and Dan.”
