Giraffe Publishing was founded in 2011 by Matthew Larcome, a driven entrepreneur, author and book lover who had experienced rejections from over 40 different publishing houses when he had finished writing his first book.
With a mission to be different, Giraffe Publishing allows new authors to enjoy the experience of being published by a team of people who simply love great stories. Unlike other mainstream publishing companies, we read all manuscripts sent to us and then choose to work with the authors who have what it takes to work with us in promoting their work.
We share the risk and the rewards with our authors, which means any author, from any background, has the chance to have their book published with us, depending our initial criteria is met.
So far in our couple of months in existence, we’ve helped to publish the books of three talented authors, brought their books to market and have helped sell copies across the world with our retail partners including Amazon.com and Waterstones bookshops.
We also have invested into creating our own retail channel and website called GiraffeBookshop.com which allows our authors to sell their books to thousands of potential customers and readers.
At Giraffe Publishing we specialise in publishing high-quality entrepreneurial and business books to inspire, encourage and motivate an audience. From entrepreneurs’ success stories to business resource books, we can help achieve your publishing dreams by providing proof-reading, editorial, typesetting, book formats and layouts, cover design-work and marketing strategies and campaigns – we can do it all.
Through our exclusive process from ideas and brainstorming to design and print, you will work closely with you exclusive account manager who will guide you through the entire process, ensuring your happiness at each stage. We also work closely with authors to create their perfect book to ensure sales targets are reached once the publication has launched.
To cover the costs of producing a book, we charge a very small fee to all authors to go towards the production of a book. This will then allow us to develop the book through all the relevant stages from proof reading and editing to design and print.
Once the author and the account manager are both happy with the final mock-up the book is then added onto our unique print-on-demand operation; which means the book will only be printed as and when a customer orders it. Once the book’s sales targets are being met, we would then agree long-term investment into the book by ordering bulk quantities to sell to retailers, worldwide, including the likes of Waterstone’s, Amazon and WHSmith.
