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.

It is a sad but little-known fact that thousands of patients die or are injured each year in the UK while under the care of doctors and surgeons in hospital. The reason is avoidable human error. The Safer Care course books are aimed to raise awareness among healthcare professionals about "human factors", mostly psychological, to improve communication and task performance and prevent these tragedies.
Swan & Horn is primarily a provider of expert publishing and editorial services for authors of fiction and non-fiction in any genre, covering fiction, novels, poetry and memoirs, textbooks, manuals, self-help books and technical publications. We are also an independent non-fiction publishing house with a focus on health issues, with a growing list of highly regarded books to our name.
Publishing yourself – or with another publisher?
We are a small (but perfectly formed) family business. Whether you need help with your publishing project, or want to be published, you will have contact with just one person throught the entire process – Maria Hampshire-Carter – from first concept or draft to the final product. This continuity has countless advantages in terms of managing your content, and understanding your needs and aspirations. Modern publishing is powerful, but complicated, and having a helping hand, sound advisor, and critical professional "friend" can make all the difference.
