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 they 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'll 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

ALL-IN-ONE. And much FAIRER FOR YOU

Everything you need to get your book published and out into the world 

Writing a book is tough enough. Unfortunately, lots of companies make it worse by taking authors' rights and royalties, and tying them into bad contracts. We think that's unfair.

So we re-wrote the rules to make an all-in-one service that's fairer to you - the author.

SMALL FAMILY BUSINESS

Personal and friendly support

So many companies are faceless and cold to 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-run 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 here. 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 write and 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. 

That's why we built a service that's fairer to authors

So you can get your book finished, formatted and published without getting frustrated or overwhelmed.

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