publishing consultancy

Making a book requires a fair amount of collaboration, and various stages to make it all come together. It can be a daunting process and if you're stuck on where to begin we are here to guide you through the publishing process


project management, structural/copy-editing, proofreading, indexing

A good book, whether ebook or printed, takes top-notch project management: liaising with designers and typesetters, art direction, proofreading, printing. We understand the book-making process from start to finish and have impeccable organisational systems to make sure every project we work on is seamless, without any sweat or tears.

We are professional editors, and when polishing your copy you can trust that you're in expert hands. Because of our extensive background in non-fiction publishing, we know what aspects make a book stand out from the crowd and translate to sales.
