We have been working within and for the publishing industry for over 30 years, providing expert editorial and publishing services for authors of both fiction and non-fiction. We also publish our own books, primarily healthcare-related, for professionals, practitioners, academics and general audiences.
We respect that our high-quality authors are often busy in other aspects of their lives.
We work with them closely and sensitively from first concept to publication - as long as it takes - allowing their content and input to evolve with time.
We do not need to adhere to a rigid sequence of tasks or unreasonable deadlines found in large publishing houses.
We take into account all of our authors' wishes and goals.
The truth is we are so author-centred that publishing with Swan & Horn is nothing short of a pleasurable experience.
What's more, from first draft to final polish, you will receive a level of attention and engagement that far surpasses anything to be found in today's DIY publishing environment and when engaged with a large publishing house. Whatever the genre and subject of your book – fiction or non-fiction – we can help you. Find out more by clicking on a button below.
Why publish with Swan & Horn?
Because we produce books of the highest quality, our approach to publishing is unique and we are relentlessy author-friendly.
For the same reasons that our own authors love us - mainly because the Publishing Director of Swan & Horn, Maria (Hampshire) Carter, is highly skilled in every area of publishing, and works very closely with all her authors on every aspect of their publication, including content development, editing, indexing, copy writing, book/cover design, production, print buying and ebook creation.
This unique approach optimises editorial quality and internal consistency (of the text and the project as a whole), allows for short turnaround times, and creates a streamlined goal-focused, author-centred workflow.
At the same time, it eliminates the inter-departmental barriers and clashes, enforced (unreasonable) deadlines and creative restrictions that are common in large publishing houses.
You will find that 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 listening ear and a pair of safe hands. To find out more, enquire here.
