Porcupine Press | Self Publishing | Book Marketing & Distribution.

Why Publish with us?

What makes us different?

      The Porcupine Press imprint has a growing reputation for quality books.

We provide professional writing, editing and design services for people with ideas but limited skills.

We provide national and international distribution (both POD and bricks and mortar shops), including print-on-demand and e-book distribution.

Free publishing advice and personal face-to-face meetings with the knowledgeable Porcupine Press team.

Choose the services you want from a modular list. But beware: Don’t skimp on editing or cover design.

An author network; make friends with other authors at Porcupine Press.

We believe that the customer is NOT always right.  You are coming to us for our advice and knowledge; therefore we will provide you with honest advice on your manuscript.

We specialise in independent book publishing. Unlike vanity publishers we are book centric, rather than service   centric.

Book print files ownership, after an agreed number of printed copies.

We can create all types of book formats, from print (paperback and hardback) via POD, short digital print runs, litho printing, as well as ebooks.
