We promote the book to our contacts in the trade and media, built up through sales of other books in our range but often an author contacting shops personally achieves the best results. We are able to secure on-line listings with the major Internet book sellers like Amazon and Waterstones. Non book trade outlets are becoming increasingly important and lateral thinking is needed to find outlets linked to the book’s subject matter.
Loose Chippings publishes books under its own imprint and also provides a service to authors wishing to self publish.
Our authors all have something interesting to say. Beyond that they are quite disparate, although so far we have published no fiction.
For authors for whom I feel we can do a good job, we set about designing a visually appealing book with the best chance of succeeding in its specific market. We cover every element needed to achieve the greatest success possible for books by our chosen authors but we believe promoting books is a partnership and we look to an author’s expertise to provide an entrée to their contacts in the key market for their book.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any aspect of our publishing business.

I offer a creative graphic design solution used both by authors who wish to self-publish and clients who need designs for brochures, programmes, greetings cards and other types of artwork.
I believe in working closely with a client at all stages to ensure that what I produce meets, and exceeds, their expectations. And I like to be efficient, answering queries promptly and delivering projects on time.
Most of the projects I undertake are destined for printing and clients can use their own printers or I can get quotes if requested. Some of my work is destined for the web or other digital forms and files can be supplied as required.
Some examples of graphic design projects completed are shown below.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a graphic design brief.
