Welcome to Melrose Books
Melrose Books is a well established and highly regarded independent publishing company based in the historic cathedral city of Ely near Cambridge. We are always looking to take on new authors whether they are recognised or unknown. Our partnership packages are popular because, unlike self publishing, a full service is provided including marketing support and distribution and the author retains creative control and a high level of involvement.Social media forms an integral part of our marketing packages including Facebook, Twitter and Wordpress. We also provide a full ebook and distribution of content service.
Partnership publishing typically offers authors a much higher royalty rate whereas mainstream publishing offers between 7.5 to 15%. Many of our authors come to us through recommendation and through our reputation with many authors returning with further titles for publication. Please see our submissions page for details on how to submit your manuscript.
We are committed to publishing quality books which includes all genres from novels to captivate the reader to memoirs which give a fascinating insight into enthralling lives. We specialise in biographies, reference, business and coffee table books.
Conserving our planet is also very important to us and we operate an ethical environmental policy. Our books are printed on paper from sustainably managed forests and we regularly monitor our recycling practices.
