This publishing service is currently undergoing an identity crisis. TAF Publishing now comes under The Book Producers Ltd. I’m trying to decipher this maze of Russian Dolls, wrapper by wrapper – who left who – who runs what, and just exactly what it means for self-published authors. The Book Producers fully relaunched in September 2012 and is run by author and publisher David Jones (formerly of TAF Publishing/The Author’s Friend).
“We’ve spent the last few weeks rebuilding and re-organsing. We’ve introduced many new and innovative ideas to benefit everyone looking to get a book published. Managing Director David Jones is excited by our new offerings.
Take a look at our new publishing packages – with our economy pack you are now able to get your book published for as little as €795, and that includes 50 free paperback copies. We’ve a new E-publishing service so you can take advantage of the ‘Kindle revolution’. We’ve also introduced a new audio book service which will be the next big thing to hit the market. We’ve a brand new on-line book shop ready to launch in the next few weeks – it will feature lots of new ideas to help you market your book both here in Ireland and world-wide.
It doesn’t stop there though – we’re teaming up with The Irish Writers Institute to offer creative writing courses and workshops. We’ve a new book – Licence To Write – which explains everything you need to know about writing a book. We will also be launching the new 2013 Irish Writers, Authors and Poets Handbook which contains masses of details about writing and getting published in Ireland.”
In time, we will have a full review of this company.
UPDATE 2017: No longer believed to be in operation.
