Give your writing the book it deserves
Book design and publishing services for independent authors
Ensuring your work will compete with the mainstream publishers.

We can help and advise from a blank page to book design, editing, and manuscript evaluation, plus we offer proofreading, indexing, typesetting, print, production and market identification.
Independent authors who invest in professional editing and design sell up to 40% more than those who don’t.
We welcome a diverse range of independent authors, all with differing needs, whether you wish to publish through us at the Big Ideas Library (we supply ISBN registration, ebook platform and library submissions) or you wish to handle the publishing yourself.
