Publishing Consultation

Publishing Consultation

Discuss your book and get clarity on how to publish

A one-to-one publishing consultation with Helen Hart, Publishing Director at SilverWood Books.

  • Product code PC1


A one-to-one publishing consultation, via video call or in person with Helen, to establish what you want to achieve with your book, and how to go about doing it.

  • A minimum of one hour of professional advice, specific to you and your publishing project.

  • Together we'll discuss your book, your target readership, editing and proofreading, and set out a clear 'pathway to publication'.

  • If we're meeting in person, we can look at book samples, assess the quality you're aiming for, and discuss the types of materials you might choose for the cover and interior.

  • We'll touch on design and typesetting, bibliographic data, legal deposit, book promotion and distribution (including information on trade discounts and likely returns for you).

  • You should also leave the session with a good idea of the budget required for your project, and where VAT is applicable in your circumstances (depending on geographical location).

Once payment is received, we'll be in touch by email to arrange a suitable date and time for your session, either in person if location allows or via Zoom video call.

UK VAT at the standard rate will be added during the checkout process where applicable.
