A quick guide to publishing with SilverWood Books

Want to publish now?

We've made things simple with a 7-Step plan to get you started.


Download our Author's Guide to Publishing with SilverWood here. Also check our FAQ page and browse our optional Services for Writers which can help to give your work that final professional polish.


Decide which of our Publishing Services Packages is right for your needs, or drop us a line if you plan to feature photographs or other images.

Our Learning Zone also offers extra information about publishing which you might find helpful.


Contact Us with an outline of your project, telling us which services you feel best suit your aims for your book. We work regularly on black and white fiction and non-fiction, children's picture books, and full-colour books packed with photographs and illustrations. We can also work with you on a Services-Only basis.


It's helpful at this stage if you can send your manuscript as a Word document attached to an email according to our Submission Guidelines.


We'll review your manuscript and, if your work is ready for publication, send an estimate of publishing costs. We'll also ask you a little more about your plans for marketing and selling your book.


If you'd like to publish with SilverWood, please review our standard Publishing Terms and Conditions and then complete the order form included with your estimate. You will then be introduced to the publishing assistant who will guide and support you throughout the publishing process, and work will begin.


You'll take delivery of the copies of your book you've ordered for personal use, and we'll take care of the rest. We'll fulfil retail and wholesale orders, maintain stock, take care of invoices, keep accounts and send author royalties when they are due.
