Since 2000





OUR PUBLISHING SERVICES are aimed at authors who are commiss-ioned by other publishers or who want to self-publish.


As a longstanding Advanced Member of the key publishing industry training and advisory body, the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, Maria applies her first-class editorial skills and standards to all manuscripts, bridging the quality gap between today's off-the-shelf services and those of the major publishing houses.


From first draft to final polish, you will receive a level of attention and engagement that far surpasses anything found in today's DIY publishing environment and large publishing houses. To find out more, click below.

These are just some of the self-published books we have worked on in recent years. Click the cover images for more information.
