Partnership Publishing

What is Partnership Publishing?

Our Professional Partnership Publishing is a comprehensive service that will offer professionally edited, typeset, printed copies of your book with a bespoke cover design and eBook conversion and distribution included in the package price. 

Our books are produced by leading print companies to the very highest specification. You are in control of content and design and can be confident that the book that you have always dreamed of will be the one that you will get in your hands.  85% royalties come to you, the author, with 15% remaining with us, so you can see that we continue to have a vested interest in selling your book.  We have active sales and promotions departments to help and advise you every step of the way.  Our partnership with the major book wholesalers enables us to work closely with all major UK and worldwide bookshops and online sellers so ensuring swift delivery and order fulfilment.

eBook technology has changed the way people approach books and we feel this is a crucial additional service, enabling our authors to embrace this new reading technololgy whilst still having a printed version for those who want to feel a book in their hands and to keep adding to their library. With our approach, you can truly have the best of both worlds.

Our partnership with the major book wholesalers enables us to work closely with all major UK and worldwide bookshops and websites so ensuring swift delivery and order fulfilment.

Our appraisal is free of charge and, if we make a publishing offer, we will send a quotation for one of our Partnership Packages tailored to your book.  Prices will be based on the content and extent of your manuscript and the initial print run, which we would advise to be around 500. So, please submit your work for consideration either via our Submissions facility, via email to info@melrosebooks.co.uk or in the post to: Mrs Rachel Hutchinson, Melrose Books, St Thomas' Place, Ely, Cambridgeshire CB7 4GG.  Whichever package you decide upon - Silver, Gold or Platinum - you can be sure of a high quality book and the beginning of your career as a published author.

We are always ready to welcome authors to our offices in Ely or we can visit your home for a chat about which programme would best suit you and how to bring your vision to reality. We look forward to hearing from you.
