Publishing is a tough business, especially for independent authors, and the biggest challenge is finding a way to deliver a high quality product while keeping control of your costs.
The way to find that balance is to do as much as possible yourself and then get professionals in to help out in the areas that really matter. That’s where we come in.
- Education first. Every year we publish the equivalent of three books on our blog. If you’re looking for writing tips, marketing tactics, and publishing advice, check out our blog here. It’s all for free!
We give our authors free access to templates and tools to help with more specific parts of the publishing process.
- Fair advice. You can expect honesty from us. We’re not going to recommend a service if it doesn’t bring you any closer to your goals.
- We are part of your team. When you become a Standout Books author you’re not just paying for an edit or a website, you’re adding us to your publishing team.
- Go above and beyond. You can expect us to go the extra mile for you. We’re passionate about publishing and will do whatever we can to further your success.
It’s all about our authors
The most important thing about us is our authors. We’re lucky to work with some amazing people around the whole world. Here’s an overview of some of the places our authors live:
Our authors are as important as any of our team members, as they make us who we are. We have grown our business purely through word-of-mouth recommendations from existing clients, so it’s fair to say we wouldn’t exist without them.
Our success relies on your success, so we’ll always be fighting for you.
The Standout Books team
We are a distributed team with members around the world, in the USA, the UK, Australia, Europe, and South Africa.
This helps us keep our prices low – we don’t have an expensive NYC or London office to maintain. It allows our team to work wherever they like, giving them complete flexibility in their lifestyle.
It also means that you can work with native English speakers who are local to you. We don’t outsource our work to low-cost countries.
Our headquarters is in the United Kingdom, just outside Manchester, but you’re just as likely to find us on the road at publishing events and conferences worldwide.
Our energetic team of professionals are excited by the change and opportunity enveloping the publishing industry. With our hands-on experience and industry knowledge, we give you a soft place to land.
Aspiring authors, self-published authors, traditionally published authors, independent publishing companies – we are here to help you with each stage of your publishing journey.
