Here at Pen Press, we believe that the focus should be on the author. Unlike other self publishing houses, we believe in putting a face on your publishing experience. Our professional and friendly team will guide you through the publishing process, so you are not merely another cog in the machine. This, and our exceptionally competitive package prices, is what sets us apart from the rest.
Once your book is published, Pen Press continue working hard to market, sell and send your book out to readers, depending on your publishing package. The numerous successes of some of our titles mean that we are now even able to offer a few conventional publishing deals via our Indepenpress imprint.

‘I've worked in
publishing and can honestly say that this is among the best self publishing
houses around. Great quality books, and friendly, goal orientated staff.'
Samuel Bonner, Someone’s In The House
‘I didn’t receive good advice or marketing support from my mainstream
publisher and ended up doing a lot of promotional work off my own bat. I
realised I would rather do it myself and retain higher percentages.’
Colin Campbell, Through the Ruins of Midnight, Ballad of the One Legged Man, and Gargoyles, Skylights and Roofscapes
‘Thank you so much for all your comments. They were so helpful; you had obviously put hours of work into it and your talents showed through.’

‘The last thing I wrote for TV – my seventh episode of Midsomer
Murders – was watched by half a billion people. Why Pen Press? They pick
and choose their books and that puts them a cut above the competition.’

certainly enjoyed an excellent working relationship throughout the
preparations...your help, advice and encouragement have been invaluable.’
John Riley, Sir There’s a
Pig in t’ Yard!
wow!!!! Absolutely fantastic. So pleased!’
Polly Pomfrey, Baking Whoopies
over four months to receive a reply from just one of the eight mainstream
publishers I had submitted my work to. When the inevitable rejection came, it was perfectly obvious from the
comments that my work had not even been read! I gave up wasting my time with
people who weren’t even going to give my work a chance and decided to publish
Maislish, White Slave and Assasination
perfectly certain that I wouldn’t have received this level of service with a mainstream
publisher – bravo to Pen Press for making it possible!’

Smiling Jaws, Till the Fat Lady’s Sung, Trespassers Will be
