'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 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.”

'It’s a Dog’s Life'

We worked with author Stephen Wylie on his first book It’s a Dog’s Life, a heart-breaking tale of one dog’s journey through adversity. Stephen had a clear idea of how he wanted his book to look, and we worked with him to make his idea a reality.

We edited the book, designed and laid it out, and managed the printing of 1,000 paperback copies. Stephen is selling his book through his dog rescue charity website, with some of the proceeds going to his charity, SHAK.

“The books landed today and I still can't believe I've done it. Just wanted to thank you all for helping me when I really didn't know where to go next.”
