Meet Our Authors

Authors are the life-blood of any publisher, and The Book Guild is no exception. We value our authors highly and work with them to achieve the very best for their writing.

The number of new books published in recent years has soared, and competition by authors to get published is fierce. The rise in the numbers wishing to publish and the conservative position of most major commercial publishers has left many authors struggling to find a publisher. Many authors turn to self-publishing, but most have little knowledge of the complexities of publishing, marketing and distributing a book to retailers successfully.

Siamese cat isolated on the white background

At The Book Guild, as well as publishing traditionally, we offer many authors a middle way between self-publishing and commercial publishing that is unique. Using our expertise and infrastructure, we provide a route to a professionally published book that is part author-funded.

Whether it be fiction or sport, poetry or biography, children’s books or history titles – and through whatever route they publish – it’s our authors who create, inspire and inform. With some professional polishing from The Book Guild, we endeavour to ensure that they stand as good a chance in a competitive market as any title from a major publishing house. Meet some of our outstandingly creative authors here…

If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write.

You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.

Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.
