Publish With Us

We think we know why you are here.

You have finished your manuscript, but don't know how to navigate the publishing world. You have not had any joy from the emails you have sent to big publishers and agents.

So you are still looking around for an answer to your central question: how do I get published?

Book publishing and production can be confusing and daunting to new writers. Thankfully, we are here to make things easier for you.

We have been publishing non-fiction books for almost a decade. We see many well-written manuscripts that struggle to catch the eye of commercial volume publishers.

We want to step into this space - an opportunity, in fact - and help new writers get into print.

Providing we think you have a good manuscript, we will guide you through the publishing maze step by step and publish a book you can be proud of.

In essence, we want to turn book publishing from a hassle into a pleasure.

Our service includes: typesetting, cover design, proofreading, ISBN (International Standard Book Number), physical copies, ebook, distribution, marketing support and more!

Here are the steps to go through if you would like to publish with us:

  • 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.
