Writers, editors, designers and self-publishers wanted!

We are looking for writers and people with publishing skills to take part in beta testing of a new model of book publishing, which we believe will revolutionise the way writers reach readers in the 21st century.

Writers must have a completed, unpublished manuscript, ideally one which has been passed over by the traditional publishing industry but which you believe deserves to be read. It can be a novel, a short story collection, poetry or a non-fiction book.

“Creative Partners” might have successfully self-published, or have worked in the publishing industry. They will have skills in one or more of the following areas:

  • Editing
  • Formatting
  • Proofreading
  • Cover design
  • Illustration
  • Marketing

You can register for both roles. Numbers are limited and acceptance for the beta testing is not guaranteed. If you have any queries, please post them as comments on the relevant page.

New novel from Katharine D’Souza

Katharine D’Souza’s new novel, Deeds Not Words, is now available via Amazon. Museum curator Caroline thinks history is safely in the past, until a century-old family secret collides with problems at work and upsets her plans for a quiet life in Birmingham. Why has nobody mentioned Great Aunt Susannah before? What does Caroline’s old flame want from her? And are any of the paintings really what they appear to be? As she battles professional rivalries, attempts to contain family dramas, and searches for historical treasure amongst the clutter, Caroline is forced to decide what she holds most valuable and exactly what she?s going to do to protect it. Deeds Not Words. Because actions speak louder. Deeds Not Words? is a witty, sharply observed tale of contemporary life, which will delight everyone who enjoyed?Park Life and no doubt win many new readers.
