Authors – we know how difficult it can be to publish your books and to make them a success. So, you must ensure that your book has a fighting chance of being successful. So, we offer a multitude of services to ensure that your book has a fighting chance in a crowded marketplace. We provide manuscript critiques, editing and proofreading, ghost-writing services and book promotion opportunities.

Professional Manuscript Critique Service

We know how much work goes into writing a book and so, we offer our professional manuscript critique service which highlights strengths and weaknesses. We offer suggestions to help you improve any issues but will also respond to any questions that you may have. We know how important your manuscript is to you and we make sure that we help you to polish those words. Read more HERE.

Mini Manuscript Critique Service

Have you written the opening chapters of your novel? Would you like a professional evaluation of these chapters detailing areas of strength and any developmental issues? This is the perfect resource to make sure you are writing tightly and are on track for a well-written book. Don’t leave it to chance. We review the first three chapters. Find out more HERE.

Editing and Proofreading

Whether you have written a novel or non-fiction book we can help. Our editing and proofreading service takes a look at the structure of your writing, line by line and provides deep editing whilst correcting any grammatical errors that may have crept in. Our editing and proofreading service is available to purchase separately and is available to help you in the final stages prior to publication. Read more HERE

Literary Agency

We now operate as a literary agency and are happy to receive emails from authors looking to gain traditional publication. Currently, we are accepting emails outlying details of any unpublished book in the non-fiction- self-improvement niche. If you are looking for representation, please email us HERE and mark the subject line – Literary Agency Request. Provide a brief summary of  your book and we will contact you if we require the opening chapter for review. Do not send manuscripts until we have requested it.

You can trust us to create an attention-grabbing promotional package that puts your book firmly in the spotlight. Our book publicity service identifies effective hooks and unique angles on which to launch your book. We promote YOU the author and not just the book.

Book Promotion Services

You probably thought writing your book was difficult but, what you possibly didn’t consider was the agonising pain of book promotion? With so many more opportunities out there now for authors to have their work published, this makes it incredibly difficult to stand out from the crowd. Book promotion is one of those areas  where you have to throw your all into the ring and realise that it is a vital part of your book’s success. This service is to promote your book rather than book and author publicity. Read more HERE

Press Releases

Never underestimate the power of a professional press release.  Our service is targeted and aimed at  creating a buzz about your book so we take the time to get to know you and to develop a strong angle that will help your book stand out from the crowd. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that press releases are only for the celebrity authors. The media is hungry for new stories and we can help identify trends and areas which may well take your book a high priority for publishers worldwide. Email us for more details. 

Book Proposal Services

Make a good first impression. If you would like your book to be published using traditional methods and need professional help creating a tightly-written non-fiction book proposal that will incite interest from agents or publishers, then look no further.We work with you to ensure that we capture the true essence of your book and then create a lively, attention-grabbing pitch that commands attention. Writing a query letter or book proposal requires a great deal of skill to ensure that the contents of the envelope is even read, our service ensures even the most time-stricken publishers want to read more. Contact us HERE.

Categories and keywords

If you are considering publishing your book on Amazon, then, categories and keywords are so important. You need to think outside the box when it comes to identifying keywords that really work and Amazon are not overly open when it comes to the type of categories you can have or, how you can add your book to categories that are not even listed. This is where we come in. We provide a solid and thorough investigation of keywords and categories for a fixed or hourly rate. Just talk to us. Without the time spent in researching both of these elements, your book is not likely to succeed. Contact us for more details


As a writer, handing your work to someone else to comment or market can be difficult. However, working with Annette is a great experience. She understands the process of writing, getting a book to the reader and the marketing, both from an industry perspective and as a writer in her own right. I would have struggled with many aspects of my latest book launch without the help of Creative1 Publishing and I wish that I had signed up with them for my first book. One thing that I have to call out specifically is how much bang was obtained for not that much buck. This is a very cost-effective, time-effective and all-round effective solution for indie authors that need a hand.
