Who We Are

We are an Irish-based provider of professional and affordable services to authors, writers, independent publishers looking for ways, means and encouragement to publish, promote and sell books using print and digital media.

Our services cover the entire spectrum of the publishing process, allowing you to publish your book while also retaining ownership and control as an author and independent publisher.

  • We offer publishing solutions that are tailored to your budget, ambition and needs. Because every book is unique, we work with clients on an individual basis, offering you a level of personal service and one-to-one support that is unrivalled and unsurpassed.
  • You will not find any form of publishing ‘package deal’ on this website because we do not believe in them. Instead, our rate structure is tailored to the services that you actually require – to your budget, ambitions and needs, now and into the future. If you are unsure about any aspect of publishing and the choices that are available to you, we can offer you fair and impartial advice.
  • We are not tied to any outside publishing or printing concern. We are here to help you with your project and to represent your interests in the publishing process.
