It takes people to make any kind of team, organisation or business. And I have a team of friendly professionals who will help me at every stage to publish your book. As my company is still in it’s growth stage, I currently employ freelancers who work in each stage of the process. As I grow I intend to employ full time staff to help with the publishing jobs. Meet my team below and see how they will turn your manuscript into a complete, visually impressive book.

I hire a proofreader/editor form the Society of Proofreaders and editors (SfEP). The (SfEP) is a professional organisation based in the UK for editors and proofreaders – the people who strive to make text accurate and readable.
