Farthings is a small, independent publishing partnership based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. We are 2 retired professionals, who began self-publishing as we were keen to see our own work in print. Between us we have a wide range of professional skills which have proved invaluable in our success in self-publishing, not only of our own work, but also the work of others. David Fowler, who runs the technical side of the partnership, spent his working life in finance. Since his retirement, he has published several magazines and written 4 books, (with a 5th under way!) all published by Farthings. He ensures that each book, produced and published by us, has a totally professional finish. Ren Yaldren has had a wide ranging career, which has included service in the WRAF, a career in psychology and careers guidance. She uses her skills in interviewing, typing, editing and proof reading for those clients of Farthings who need these additional facilities. Ren has also written 3 books of her own which Farthings has published.
REMINDER Once your book is published through Farthings we will send you a professionally produced, bookshop standard, copy of your book. Whether you buy more copies is entirely up to you. There is no obligation apart from you buying an additional copy of your book through us if you later decide to edit your manuscript after receiving your proof copy. This is necessary to ensure continuing distribution through Lulu, Amazon etc. We specialise in the niche market of low print runs at reasonable prices and we keep your files in case you want further copies of your book at a later date. Previous clients will be offered a discount on the price of publishing future work. You don’t have to have a digital manuscript to use our services. Ren is a qualified interviewer and typist and can either type your manuscript or help you to convert the story in your head, into a manuscript, which you can proof read, ready for printing and publishing. It is a very painless process and we guarantee you will even enjoy it! Please contact us if you wish to discuss getting your work published. There is no charge for a first meeting or for e-mailed advice. And we do not bite!
