What Self-Publish-Books has to offer today
oday, Gilmour Print provides a fully comprehensive service to those who wish to publish their own book.
The complete design and print production centre
As professional book designers and producers, we offer the complete service from receipt of your manuscript – we offer advice, design your book after discussion with you, through to supplying the printed finished publication.
A friendly, helpful, reliable service
We are happy to talk to you at length about your book, offering help and advice to guide your decision-making in the right direction, so that your book is produced in the way you envisage or hopefully even exceed your expectations. We will always stay in communication so that, at every stage of your book, you are kept informed.
Experienced in typesetting and design
We are experienced in all aspects of typesetting and design. Douglas Gilmour of Self Publish Books (a division of Gilmour Print) has over 35 years’ experience in all aspects of printing and self-publishing, both full colour and mono book production. He is well placed to offer advice and make suggestions to help you reach the decisions required regarding self-publishing of your book, having assisted many happy clients over his time in this industry.
Marketing help
While you have the responsibility to sell your book, we offer help in two ways.
Firstly, through MyLiveBook, you can showcase selected pages of your book in an animated page turner, allowing potential customers to look inside your book before they buy.
Secondly, our author’s web page lets you give potential purchasers a chance to read a bit about you and your book(s). Both these facilities are free when we design and print your book. Even if you have a website of your own, these additional pages can help drive more traffic to your website and boost your position on search engine pages.
In summary . . .
Dealing with one completely integrated supplier will make the production of your book more straight-forward for you.
Let us take the pain out of self-publishing for you!
