NO CONTRACT = FREEDOM

Just say no to a bad contract

Many authors tell us they got tricked into signing a bad contract. They were approached by a publisher and felt flattered, so signed. Only to discover they'd made a big mistake, giving away their rights, royalties and ownership. So to help you keep 100% in control over your book, we don't ask you to sign a contract. Freedom is fairer.

Enjoy peace of mind with:

  • No restrictive contract
  • You own your book
  • You stay in control
  • You're not restricted
  • You're not locked in
  • No legal worries

COPYRIGHT CONTROL

Keep your book's copyright. Forever.

Unlike most companies we never ask you to sign away your book's copyright. You keep full ownership of your book, now and forever. Plus, this gives you the freedom to move publishers, turn your book into an audiobook or film, or translate it to different languages, all while knowing the rights are still yours.

Enjoy peace of mind knowing you:

  • Keep your book rights
  • Keep your film rights
  • Freedom to publish
  • Stay in control
  • You're not restricted
  • You're not locked in
  • Retain your rights
  • No worries or stress

SMALL FAMILY BUSINESS

Personal and friendly support

So many companies are faceless and cold towards new authors. You get passed from person to person and never know who you're really dealing with. Frustrating to say the least! We're family-run so you'll always know who you're talking to, and we'll stay with you from start to finish.

A family business that treats authors like family.

A lot of publishing companies talk about their corporate offices, industry awards or fancy jargon. But to many new authors this can seem daunting and intimidating.

You won't find any corporate fanciness with us. We work from our home here in England, and prefer to think of our authors as friends.

Our aim is to help you get past the hurdles so you can publish your book without stress or frustration.

There are many steps to get absolutely right when you publish your book. At times it can seem so overwhelming many authors simply give up. It's such a shame as lots of wonderful books never get to see the light of day. 

So, we believe you need lots of support and hand-holding, along the way, so you can cross the finish line with ease and finally publish your book.


We look forward to working with you and welcoming you to the 'family'.
