About Us – Why Choose Scotforth?

Scotforth Books, part of Carnegie Publishing Ltd (established in 1984), specialises in advising and helping authors to turn their manuscripts into professionally designed, attractive books.

We have been creating books for over 30 years, both for our own catalogue and for a huge range of organisations and authors, so as you might imagine we have developed expertise in every aspect of publishing and book production. Our long experience, together with our passion for quality and honesty, mean that your finished book will be of the highest standard and the prices will be very fair. From the simplest softback or e-book right up to the most lavish hardback, we can work to your requirements to produce the best possible book to suit your budget. And you can rest assured that you will make all the decisions every step of the way – we are here to help and advise, but it is your wishes that are always paramount.

What you will notice if you decide to publish with us is that everyone who works here takes tremendous pride in what they do, and in ensuring that every author is thrilled with the end result. Most people come to us via recommendation and we would encourage you to have a look at what just a few of them say about us and the experience of publishing with us.

Many authors choose us as an alternative to the rather impersonal, confusing and mechanised approaches that a lot of self-publishing companies take. Our aim is to provide an honest and straightforward service with a human face. You can come to us with no knowledge whatsoever of publishing and we will guide you through, step-by-step, making sure you understand everything you need to in order to make decisions along the way.
