With most publishers, you're on your own until you hand over your manuscript. At Practical Inspiration we coach you step by step through the process of planning, drafting and revising your book. 

Your manuscript then goes through a rigorous editing process, and our brilliant design and production team turn it into a polished, professional book. 

Once it's published, we get your message out internationally with professional, international sales and distribution to bookshops and libraries in print and digital formats worldwide, together with promotion and marketing support. We also have a rights team proactively selling translation rights, to take your book further.
