“As a first-time author, I was rather nervous of being tied to an agent, which could have meant having control and publication taken out of my hands, so explored the option of self-publication. I was similarly wary of the machine-produced "auto-bot" type of self-publication. After all, when you've spent a couple of years writing your novel, you want to do it justice!
Having discovered UK Book Publishing's website, and reading the testimonials of other authors, I felt confident that this was the right company to help me with publication. From the initial manuscript inquiry to the polished and finished product, the team have supported the process every step of the way. E-mails were always answered promptly, and the advice was always friendly, professional and helpful. I would say they offer "supported publication" rather than "self-publication". They are clearly dedicated and passionate about helping authors achieve their dreams.
I would not hesitate to use UK Book Publishing again, and highly recommend their service - it is tailor-made to what you need, their professionalism is second-to-none and worth every penny. Many thanks to Ruth, Jay and the team!”
