Since 2000





OUR PUBLISHING SERVICES are aimed at authors who are commissioned

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.

Maria can pick up the pieces on any stage of a project, or provide gentle guidance from start to finish on a new one. She understands the varied needs of authors and their aspirations and helps them feel at ease with the publishing process at all stages. She provides a helping hand, a second pair of eyes, expert guidance, and the sound advice of an experienced editorial professional. She is a fair but critical professional "friend".
