 Full support for authors and writers of independent works ...


Because we produce books of the highest quality, and our approach to publishing is unique.


  • We keep our annual output of new titles low because we choose to work only with high-quality authors, who are often busy in other aspects of their careers, and work with them closely and sensitively over an extended period from concept to publication - as long as it takes, in fact, for their content to evolve in line with changes in evidence, policy and readership, and their opinions, among other factors.

  • Our schedules are flexibl and we do not need to adhere to a rigid sequence of tasks or meet conflicting departmental demands.  

  • We take into account all of our authors' wishes and goals, and any pressures on them, which makes publishing with Swan & Horn a nothing short of a pleasurable experience.

Our approach to service provision is also unique, because the Director of Swan & Horn, Maria (Hampshire) Carter, works closely with all authors and writers on every aspect of their publications, including content development, editing, indexing, copy writing, information design, book design, and production, all the way through to print.  


The main benefits of this approach are the optimisation of editorial quality and internal consistency, potentially short turnaround times, and eliminates inter-departmental barriers and impositions common in larger publishing houses, thus promoting a streamlined goal-focused workflow.


Furthermore, dealing with a single friendly, flexible, knowedgable person throughout the entire process makes authors feel appreciated and at ease, and  helps re-invigorate them after years of hard grind.


Authors working with Swan & Horn are guaranteed technical and literary excellence, as well as a pair of safe hands and a listening ear.
