'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.”

'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.

'Tetra'

The first of a four-part series, Tetra is an exciting book by a new young author. We took his brief for the cover to create a visual that sets the book within its genre and pulls in the imagery from the story. We also edited the book and typeset it, before setting up the book for print on demand and selling online.

The author is garnering some great reviews already, so look out for the sequel.

“I stumbled upon UK Book Publishing almost by accident and it was the most fortunate accident of all. Every team member I ever interacted with were so pleasant and helpful, going above and beyond to assist me after a previous editor had let me down. From book cover to manuscript editing, the team did it all and kept me informed throughout. Can't wait to see what they do with my next three in the series!”

'A year in the life of our North East Coast'

For nearly 18 months we worked with Newcastle University on a special book, made by and for the people of the North-East.

A year in the life of our north east coast‘ is a beautiful visual testament to the coastline of north east England, featuring hundreds of images by local residents of all ages. A full colour, case-bound (hard back) coffee table style book, it’s ideally suited to showing off the amazing coastline of North East England !

“We really enjoyed the entire process of producing our book. Both Dan and Jay were extremely enthusiastic, inventive and supportive throughout each stage, from the project proposal to actual book launch. They produced a beautiful book which is proving very popular with the people of the north east of England and indeed further afield. We look forward to working with the team in the future.”

'Respect: essential, universal, elusive'

A wide ranging study into respect and its importance, Keith Brown’s book includes personal examples and anecdotes and a thorough analysis of what respect means for different people.

We designed the cover artwork, proofread and typeset the book, and set the book up for print on demand and selling online. Keith’s book was featured in a full page review in The Voice.

“I am very satisfied with the quality of the product, as well as the service that I have received from UK Book Publishing. Please convey my thanks to Ruth and Jay for their professional, efficient and effective service.”

'The History Gate Adventures'

The author had written a book for her nephew (in which he stars as the hero), and wanted to produce the book as a very special birthday surprise. We proofread the book, laid it out and designed a cover for the hardback book, and had a number of copies printed for the author. It’s a fantastic adventure – he’s a very lucky boy.

“Thank you so much for all of your efforts on the book – it arrived this morning and I must admit to shedding a little tear when I opened it. It looks fantastic!”

'Surviving the PhD'

This engaging book is a personal and uplifting account of one man’s journey through the highs and lows of studying for a doctorate, from the initial enquiry through to the graduation ceremony.

We designed a cover for Michael’s book, proofread and laid out the book, and had a number of copies printed for him. He particularly liked the wordplay on the cover.

“I am extremely happy at the result of your and your team's work. I could not have imagined such an outcome. Please pass on my appreciation to your team. The book cover alone is confirmation that using ukBookPublishing has been a very worthwhile investment. I will certainly continue to recommend ukBookPublishing.”

'Calendar Pigs'

A beautifully illustrated book, first published as a hardback, had gone out of print, and its author and illustrator, Georgina Jack, was keen to make it available as a paperback, so we reset the book, with some additional illustrations, and got it for sale online through print on demand.

“Thank you for making such a beautiful job of my book. You are obviously a perfectionist and I couldn't be more delighted with the result. I was not expecting such high quality in a paperback. Please pass on my grateful thanks to everyone involved in its production.”
— Georgina Jack
