Helping you to publish well

Work one-to-one with SilverWood's founder Helen Hart...

SilverWood accepts a limited number of new authors each year. If your manuscript is selected through our careful submission process, Helen will support you throughout the writing and publishing process, from copy-editing, proofreading, typesetting and cover design, through to your decisions on printing, distribution and sales.

SilverWood can manage the entire process including printing and distribution for you, or pass print-ready files to you for upload to your Ingram Spark or Amazon KDP account so you have access to your own dashboards and are paid directly for any sales.
