feed Book Publishing

There are many reasons why people decide to have their books published privately. Older people, who have had interesting lives, feel they should write it down for their children and grandchildren. Others have had books printed as a memorial to a husband or wife, and several have wanted their children's books printed. Big publishers often turn them down or want to edit their book or turn down their chosen photographs The reasons are legion, and we are here to help!


Wilton 65 has published a large variety of books including in the main (but by no means exclusively) autobiographies, diaries, travel books, poetry, pamphlets and occasionally copies of books in facsimile, and reprints. We also publish extracts of particular interest from much longer books which have been on the market in their entirety. We are high class publishers who give individual attention to all who seek our advice. We will register for an ISBN and recommend a Bar Code if books are to be made available in bookshops and/or online. An ISBN involves an obligation for the author to send 6 free copies of the book to the British Library for distribution to the principal libraries, but this has the advantage that the books can be located by any bookshop.
 
For those considering having a book published we recommend that you email us enquiries@wilton65.co.uk in the first instance giving us as much information as you can about the book you are wanting to publish: genre; word count; approximate number of colour and B/W photographs; whether it's a private publication or for sale; number of copies you are thinking of printing. We will then call you to discuss your book and follow this up with an email giving you an idea of costs. If you are able to email the manuscript as a Word document then we can give you more accurate costs because we can import the book into Indesign in the correct size. 

We offer typesetting, copy editing, copy writing, proofreading, book design and formatting, cover design and marketing advice. We liaise with you at all stages of the production process, you are always in control.

We take pride in our friendly relationship with clients who appreciate the personal touch.
