The Manuscript Publisher

an author-centred approach to publishing and self-publishing in the digital age

The Manuscript Publisher is an Irish-based provider of professional and affordable services to authors, writers, independent publishers.
In a period just short of ten years, we have helped dozens of authors and writers, from Ireland and further afield, to successfully publish their books. We have worked with authors and writers of all genres, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry. We have worked with authors on their first publishing outing as well as previously published authors, looking for ways to reach new audiences for their work while maintaining ownership and control of the publishing process.
Some of the books and titles that we have helped to produce are available to browse from this website and to buy online – see our portfolios and our online bookshop for further information.
We are an entirely independent entity. We are not tied to any outside publishing or printing concern. This is important because it means that we can offer you fair and impartial advice, ensuring that your best interest, as a self-published author and independent publisher, is served.

Book Cover Design

The cover that you choose for your book (including e-book) is often your readers' first impression. With a cover design, you are trying to anticipate your target audience's reaction in a manner that will convert them into paying readers and customers. The first step in that process is to persuade them to take a look inside.

It could be your own story or that of someone else – our team of professional writers and editors will help you to get all into a written format.

Publishing is the business of producing and disseminating material for public consumption. Traditionally, this referred to printed matter but in more recent times, digital content has emerged as a competitor.
