Professional Coaching Book Publication:
'This is the first time our company has used the self-publishing route. Having done in depth research with a consideration to managing the artwork, proof-reading, designing, printing, release-to-trade, etc, etc, it soon became clear that to produce a book of quality and credibility, it would have been pure false economy to attempt this project on a sole basis. The time, attention to detail, advice received from The London Press has unquestionably been invaluable. It was a true 'One Shop' process, which, had it been managed independently, would have consumed an unjustifiable amount of my already limited available time. An investment very well worth making, so much so, I have commissioned The London Press to start work on a second publication with them. Highly recommended.'
London Boat Show Launch for Certain Death in the Ice:
Authors Carl Lomas and Tracey Worth launch their book: Certain Death in the Ice, at the London Boat show. The book relates a remarkable story of a British family's expedition to sail around the world. The work was professionally typeset by The London Press and features over a hundred images documenting the various adventures and challenges faced on the adventure. Here is the books synopsis: Certain Death in the Ice is the true story of a British family's expedition to sail around the world. Join the family on their journey as they first sail to Rio, and enjoy a South American adventure all the way along the coast to the Pacific. Re-routing because of Somali pirate activity around the Suez Canal, the family journeys back around Cape Horn to the Southern Atlantic and the Falkland Islands - and then set sail for Cape Town, South Africa. Terror follows when struck by a wild gale and events take a dangerous turn! The family communicate their peril via satellite communications, and ship officers and friends around the world send survival advice - but no one is close enough at hand to mount a rescue. Together, the family face Certain Death in the Ice!
Release of full colour book on quality paper, professional typeset w/100s high-res imgs:
As a complete novice in the publishing world, I was most anxious about all the pitfalls in the industry that I had read about before. Now I am the proud author of a book that has far exceeded my expectations. It is the result of a wonderful relationship that has developed between The London Press and me, the rookie author. They have been most supportive and understanding in dealing with all my fears and led me step by step through all the publishing stages.
They have done this by providing a service of the highest quality, & have dealt with all my questions promptly and satisfactorily (and with great patience, I might add). I felt that my needs were always considered by them, that I could trust The London Press team to do whatever was in the interest of both parties. Without their insights the book would definitely not be what it is today. I really feel that now we are not only colleagues but have as a result become friends as well.
Technically they definitely know their trade. My book was a particularly difficult project, and they handled all aspects superbly. The typesetters produced something that I never even would have envisaged as a possibility. The final printed product is stunning.
In a nutshell: The London Press have made my publishing experience a pleasurable and fulfilling one.
