Fiction4All started life in 2005 after I had a very expensive and fruitless experience of my own with a UK-based publisher. Having paid a substantial amount of money to get my first paperback published, I decided there had to be a better way for aspiring authors to get their works published.

A chance meeting online with another author made it clear I was not alone in my experience. And no, I am not going to name the vanity publisher in the UK, but trust me, if a publisher asks for money to publish your works then I'd say walk away from them. If you pay for a work to be published, what incentive is there for the publisher to promote it? Overwhelmingly the answer to that is - NONE!

The internet has changed a lot since the early days and from time to time we are sent books that we know our hosts and the credit card processors would balk at, but it is a fairly rare occurence fortunately.

We now have a number of imprints under our roof - the latest one being our Double Dragon imprint, which came with the acquistion of Double Dragon Publishing in July 2020.

We encourage new authors as well as experienced authors to bring their books to us. We not only publish on our own range of sites, which have grown through acquisition and our own expansion, but also place books on Amazon, where appropriate, and onto other sites such as Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Nook, and others.

On the paperback side of things we run a small UK Mail Order catalogue and are expanding into paperbacks produced using the Amazon Kindle Print platform.

We expect authors to take pride in their work and to take time to proof read and correct what they write. We will format books to our in-house style and use proofing tools to remove some grammatical and spelling errors. We do not charge a fee for this service, but if a book is not adequately presented, we will hand it back to the author and suggest they either fix it themselves, or pay an independent editor to sort it out. We have ones we can recommend, but who the author uses is entirely their choice.

Having acquired Double Dragon Publishing in July 2020 we are currently busy bringing those authors and their books into the Fiction4All system. So over the next weeks and months you will see a lot of books being added to this site.

We are also open to new submissions from new and existing authors. See our Submissions page for more information.

To succeeed as an author takes time and work - writing the book is just the start. We will help you, the author, to market your book, if you can, but if not we will use out own online presence to get your book noticed if we can. If you are not already with us, we would like to welcome you in the near future.
