Welcome to Melrose Books
Melrose Books is a well established and highly regarded independent publishing company based in the historic cathedral city of Ely near Cambridge. We are always looking for new authors whether they are recognised or unknown.
Our partnership packages are popular because a full service is provided including marketing support and distribution and the author retains creative control and a high level of involvement. Social media forms an integral part of our marketing packages including Facebook, Twitter and Wordpress. A full ebook and distribution of content service is provided which gives our authors' books visibility and exposure worldwide.
All our books are available to purchase online, through our website, Waterstones, Foyles, independent bookshops and Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com, to name a few.
Partnership publishing typically offers authors a much higher royalty rate whereas mainstream publishing offers between 7.5 to 15%. Many of our authors come to us through recommendation and return to us with further titles for publication. All existing and new authors are welcome to visit our offices at any time to meet our team. Please view our testimonials from just some of our authors.
Please see our submissions page for details on how to submit your manuscript.
We are committed to publishing quality books which includes all genres from novels to captivate the reader to memoirs and biographies which give a fascinating insight into enthralling lives. We also publish and successfully market reference, business and coffee table books and books for charitable associations.
Conserving our planet is also very important to us and we operate an ethical environmental policy. Our books are printed on paper from sustainably managed forests and we regularly monitor our recycling practices.
