Consultancy

Publisher

I am a publishing and production professional with over 25 years experience in publishing operations, print buying, technical pre-press, marketing production, project management, supplier management and digital marketing.

What can I do for you?

  • Does your child have a wonderful story to tell?
  • Would you like to capture your child’s imagination in a book?

We offer publishing packages which include; editing, typesetting, illustration, cover design and short run printing in paperback or hardback.

Print runs can be as low as 50 copies, perfect for friends and family to treasure forever.

  • Do you have an audience waiting to share your story?

I can offer self-publishing packages to suit you and your audience.

You can publish in digital format, physical format or both and I can help with marketing, sales and social media.

  • Do you have a catalogue or brochure to produce for your business?

I can source designers, photographers, illustrators, copy-writers and printers and I can provide you with a workflow plan and prices or I pull everything together for you and handle the whole project.

My credentials

I have worked for  illustrated and b/w trade publishers, including Hamlyn, Mitchell Beazley, Dorling Kindersley and Penguin Books and in 2014 I set up Forelock Books Ltd, an independent publisher, specialising in Equestrian family fiction.

At Forelock Books, I am responsible for the publication, production, sales and marketing of all our books and work with a large team of authors, illustrators, editors, printers and PR companies. I understand the stresses of working in both a small, privately owned business and in a large public limited company and have managed budgets from between £100 and £1m.

Call or email me to discuss your requirements, no job is too big or too small.
