Whether you write part-time or full time, whether you pen professionally or as a hobby, we have the expertise, services and software to turn help you realise your ambitions for your book – whatever they may be. And that's the best place to start your publishing journey: by deciding why you want to publish a book. Answering this question will go a long way to helping you decide how to publish and how much to spend on it.

Decide why you want to publish

For family, friends or colleagues

If your book is not going to be for sale then it is not necessary for your title to be officially registered or distributed through bookshops. You simply choose what size and format of book you would like to produce, then design a cover, layout the internal pages and finally, choose how many copies to print. You can learn more about this process by following the simple steps on our Create Book page and looking at our Print Cost Calculator. And if you like what you read, you can start making your book today with our Basic Package.


For sale to the public

Or perhaps you have a story that you feel will be of appeal to a wider audience? You can register your book with a distributor who will make information about your title available through booksellers across the world. Customers can then instantly buy your book as an ebook or order a physical copy – with a copies being printing individually as they are ordered (this is called Print-on-Demand). You can learn more about this process on our Publish Book page. We have two publishing packages, Plus and Pro, designed to cater for varying budgets and ambitions.
