Haythorp Books

We give writers the opportunity to see their work in print
  • Julie Casson – Die Smiling

    I've had a fantastic time working with Martin and Gaby of Haythorp Books. From proof reading the manuscript to the final production of my book they have kept me fully in the picture, answered every question, valued my input, shared information, and done a brilliant job of putting together a fabulous looking book. And it doesn't end there. From taking time to support me at the launch - what a party! - they have also secured some incredible publicity for me and my book 'Die Smiling'. I am confident that this is the start of a tremendous working relationship. Thank you both!

  • Jonathan Clifton – Talking for Success

    Having recently published with Haythorp Books, I highly recommend this publisher.
    The support and service has been excellent from start to finish. The initial contact with Martin Hickman, Editor-in-Chief, was first class. He gave excellent advice on making the manuscript more marketable. Similarly, the work of Gaby Monteiro, Editorial and Marketing Officer, was quite simply excellent. She was reactive, professional, and friendly. She helped me through the production process, moving the manuscript to publication whilst ensuring a very professional final product.
