Bookouture - digital publisher of brilliant fiction

WHY PUBLISH WITH BOOKOUTURE?

Better Digital Publishing

We believe that the best publishing happens with great care, creativity and attention to detail.

That means a clear vision for an author supported by the best editing, cover design, marketing, publicity.  That means doing everything well – including the details, like metadata and pricing.  That means optimising over time, and promoting titles well after publication month.

We focus on quality over quantity.  We publish a small number of very talented authors so that we can focus on the detail and create brilliant books that sell.  We aim to add value every step of the way.

  • At Bookouture, their collaborative atmosphere allowed me to grow as a writer, expand on my ideas, and produce a kind of work that exceeded my expectations. The publishing process at Bookouture is extraordinary, and I could not be happier with their choices for me.

  • I was beyond excited the day I 'got the call' to say I’d been signed by Bookouture and was sure that this moment would be the peak of my writing life.  However, it turned out to be just the beginning of an incredible journey with a family of the most passionate, dynamic, hard-working and open-hearted team of professionals in the business. Without the amazing editorial relationships, the forward-looking marketing, the extensive social media support and the commitment to creating high-quality commercial fiction which appeals to a worldwide audience, I’d never have been able to write four bestselling novels in two years. They are THAT good. I couldn’t be more proud to be a Bookouture author.

  • Bookouture is my dream publisher. From the moment I started working with them they exceeded my expectations. My wonderful editor keeps me informed every step of the way and adds serious value to my writing – it's a true collaboration and I'm beyond grateful to be working with her. The Bookouture publicity team puts other publicity teams to shame. And I'm convinced the marketing department performs some kind of secret voodoo wizardry. From the rights department to the incredible graphics, the whole team are exceptionally talented and super-professional, while also being down-to-earth and friendly. I honestly cannot say enough good things.
