Would you like us to personally help you, so you can publish your book without frustration or confusion?

Hi we're Peter and Caroline O'Connor. We're book publishing consultants from England. We took this photo at Christmas, so you can see a tree sneaking into the picture!

We help writers from all over the world, publish their books, and we'd be delighted to help you too.

Hi, we're Peter and Caroline O'Connor.

We're book publishing consultants from England.

Working with new and established authors every day, we love helping our clients publish their books.

As independent book publishing consultants, we'll always advise you on the best way to publish your book. 

We're not affiliated with any publishers, so you can always be sure of unbiased and fair advice.

Let us help you become a published author. The easy way...

If you're hoping to publish your book, and you don't have the time to learn the hundreds of individual moving parts needed to be successful, then you may be thinking about quitting.

Chances are good that you're facing this all-too common dilemma:

How do you “figure out everything” that needs to be done, while still maintaining your sanity?

Maybe you worry that in order to publish your book, you'll have to give away all your book rights to a traditional publisher - or worse still - sell your soul to a shady vanity publisher.

On top of that, you may fret that publishing your book yourself will make it seem like you're "an amateur author" and put readers off.

As a creative person, are you ready to learn the myriad of technical requirements, platforms and programs to convert your files into ones ready for processing? After all, you're a writer not a tech-geek. 

If all of this seems a bit daunting, don't worry!

 That's exactly why we do what we do.

When you work with us, you'll have direct support from my wife Caroline and me, so you can learn all the steps to publish your book with great success.

We’ll give you all the advice you need to produce a book you'll be proud of.

Plus, we’ll show you how to do it the right way, so your readers will love your book too.

What authors have to say about us...

"Would you like to shortcut the hassle of self-publishing?


Peter and Caroline O’Connor were with me every step of the way —from cover design, interior design to publishing and with special consultation along the way.


Their timely, professional, and personalized assistance is a refreshing reminder of what real client services are about!"

Lou Gallio

Author of Omega-Alpha: Spies, Missiles and Clouds of War.

"When I began getting the book ready to publish, I became overwhelmed. Many articles I read claimed publishing was a walk in the park; sadly, I found it to be a trek through uncharted morasses of unknowns. It was truly daunting.


I then found out your clinic would allow me unlimited access to you for guidance regarding all aspects of publishing, and I felt instant relief. 


For a very reasonable monthly fee, you are educating me and filling me in on all the uncharted and poorly described stuff that I've been encountering.


You respond immediately (and I mean the same or next day) to my questions and comments, and the two of you are such lovely people, so kind and personable. I've dealt with a couple of other businesses and have been strongly put off by the attitudes and practices that I encountered.


You are the first I've met who I've found to be genuinely thoughtful, cordial people who are committed to doing your best for your clientele. 


I thank you, sincerely, for all you're doing for me, and do not hesitate to recommend you to any other authors who could use advice or help with their self-publishing efforts."

Doc Westring

Author of A Victor's Tale

"Your service is spot-on for new authors who are overwhelmed with the self-publishing process.


I also think it’s affordably priced. If this had been available to me last year, I would have jumped at the offer!


Your service seems to me to be a marvellous way to clear the path for the new first-time indie author because it really can be a very overwhelming prospect!"

Toni Cabell

Author of Lady Apprentice, Lady Liege, Lady Mage and Lady Spy series.
