Does this sound like you?

"I started my manuscript 3 years ago... and there it sits...on my desk gathering dust. 

I just want to have someone I can trust help me publish it..."

"I've been writing a book for years

and never seem to finish. 

I don't think it will be good enough to get through all these gatekeepers."

"Am I good enough.

Or should I just give up?"

"I write because the story needs to be told...

But now I'm stuck and don't know what to do to get my book out."

"This is so more complicated than I thought. 

Every time I look up how to do something, I learn about ten more steps that need to be done!"

"Writing seemed the simple part.

It turns out there are about a hundred more steps to getting my book published than I thought there were!"

"Writing isn’t the hard part.

The hard part will be publishing it."

"I don't know where to go, who to talk to, what to do, and what not to do."

You're not alone, so many authors we work with tell us this.

Hi, we're Peter & Caroline

If you're struggling to understand how to publish your book, you're not alone.

Should you try traditional publishing? Maybe query an agent? And then there's self-publishing.

Each option has its own benefits and drawbacks, and it can be a challenge to determine which one is the best fit for your needs.

Then there's the countless hours spent Googling in vein, trying to find the answers to the hundreds of questions that need to be asked to publish a book.

So if you'd like to talk to a real human, and get real expert advice, my wife Caroline would be happy to talk to you.

We've worked with over 2,000 authors since 2007 and would love to chat about your book.

And right now you can claim a complimentary Zoom call to get clear on any aspect of writing and publishing your book. 

You control the call. There'll be no hard selling, and no pressure. And no question is too silly.

Some of the things we can help you with...

Cover Design

Over the last 15 years we've designed over 2,000 book cover for our authors so if you'd like help making your book beautiful we'd love to help you. 

Expert Formatting

Poor interior layout can lead to unhappy readers and one-star reviews. We can help your words look beautiful and professional in paperback and all digital formats. 

Publishing on Amazon

With our range of publishing packages you can be sure of a professional ebook and paperback or hardback. Our packages include everything you need to get published. 

Here's a small sample of the 2000+ authors we've worked with since 2007


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 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 along the way, so you can cross the finish line with ease and finally publish your book.

To get started, book your complimentary Zoom call below.

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

Author of A Victor's Tale

"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.

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. 

You respond immediately (and I mean the same or next day) to my questions, and the two of you are such lovely people, so kind and personable.

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