Welcome to Fisher King Publishing
What's your story?
Are you a writer?
Have you been
working on a writing project but are not sure how to get it published? Perhaps you have spent months or years
trying to get an agent or publisher to back your work. For every
success story out there, the works of thousands upon thousands of
potential authors never see the light of day.
We are not a printing
press turned publisher. Fisher King Publishing is a
Yorkshire, UK based based full service publishing house working
with authors of all genre. We have an editorial panel made
up of individuals in several countries from whom we seek input
on every book we manage. This adds tremendous value from the
outset while allowing us to see things from a global
how something is read in the UK may be totally different to
how it is viewed in the US.
We take care of everything... including project planning, ISBN registration, editorial advice, typesetting, cover design, printing, on-line book placement, submission to world libraries, conversion for Kindle and iBookStore and much more.
We know how daunting it can be
to get a book published and for new authors in particular we
expect to provide a degree of mentoring to guide them
through their project.
Are we part of the
vanity publishing industry? Definitely not. Last
year we turned down over 95% of books that got past the
first post of a discussion between us and the writer. We
have two main criteria in book selection the first is that
we have to like the author - life is short enough - and
second, we have to feel there is an opportunity for the book
to find a market.
What if you are with another publisher? If you have already produced work with another publishing house and for whatever reason you wish to talk with us we would welcome having a chat.
Don't put off until tomorrow that which you can write today...
Even if all you have is just a great idea and a bunch of notes, your project has begun.
If you have an idea for a great story, what most authors lack is not the creative spirit to write but the discipline necessary to undertake the project and complete it in an allotted time.
If you have an idea for a professional work, perhaps related to your sphere of expertise you may simply need an outside perspective to help you get underway.
We are the outside perspective that will help move it all forward!
There is nothing that compares to a deadline for getting a project up and running but as most authors are their own taskmasters, life and work can so easily take over and those deadlines have a habit of shifting.
Once the project has been agreed we will work with you to get the job done and as most of what we do is internet based there is an added immediacy and a global dimension that means wherever you are, with access to a computer and an internet connection your project will not be held up; we have authors who write on their handheld PDA's while commuting!
Start now by contacting us. Simply e-mail a synopsis of the book you wish to publish, a guide to the number of words you have written or intend to write, if known, a copy of the first three chapters if available.
Due to the volume of material we see it may take time for us to get back to you.
