What is SilverWood's Empowered Publishing and how can it help me?

Empowered Publishing helps self-funding writers to produce high quality books, designed to the highest industry standards.

Our aim is to empower you as a self-publishing author and work collaboratively with you to successfully produce, distribute and sell a high quality book. Some bookshops are reluctant to stock self-published books because while the writing may be good the books themselves are let down by poor copy-editing, unprofessional page layout and amateurish cover design. Book shop owners and their customers will expect your book to look like a 'real' book, so it's vital that what you're offering them matches the high production values of mainstream publishing houses. That's where Empowered Publishing can help you, because all our books are individually designed and finished to the highest industry standards.

Empowered Publishing offers the same kind of author-publisher relationship that you might expect from a high-profile mainstream publisher. Many self-funding authors say it offers them a halfway house between DIY self-publishing and mainstream. The friendly professional team at SilverWood will take you through the publishing process from submission to book delivery, with aftercare that includes sales fulfilment, stock storage and maintenance, invoicing, accounting and regular payments to the author. For books that we sell through our trade accounts, we retain 15% of RRP.

This leaves you with the freedom to get on with marketing your current book and writing your next!
