A Little Fish Making a Big Splash
Beachy Books is an independent publisher run by an author who understands writers and has experience of traditional publishing and self publishing. We work closely with graphic designers, editors, proofreaders, and our authors to make a close-knit pod of creatives.
We like an eclectic list of literature and the imprint is establishing a diverse range of books from local history and children’s books, to poetry and fiction.
Swim in our shoal, but it’s as as rare as ambergris. Occasionally, a manuscript arrives that we think would reach a wider audience, or have very good sales — or we just have to publish it! This is funded by Beachy Books, but you still have input. You’ll like your cover – we promise! There’s no real formula, but if your writing is of a good enough quality, and the subject matter, or book type just seems to fit the Beachy Books imprint, then traditional publishing could be an option. There must also be a keen market for this kind of title to sell more widely. Collaboratively we then turn your manuscript into a published book. We also provide marketing, promotion and publicity for the book and help you get your book into wholesalers and bookshops. It is a very rewarding process for author and publisher, and there’s always something new to learn on each new book.
This model works well for a published author who wants to republish an out-of-print back-list of titles, or a book with an obvious marketing angle, or you might have tried other publishers and been disheartened following publication, but have a very solid, well-written book that you want to publish, but with more control and a personal touch.
However, the reality is, we don’t traditionally publish many books, but you never know… it could be you!
