About us

Whether you’re a seasoned author, an author in the making, or an avid reader, we hope this is the start of a great and long relationship with us.

We’ve been going for 7 years now, and are, though we say it ourselves, pretty good at bringing out the best in our authors and getting their books noticed and sold to enthusiastic readers all over the world.

We’ve built a well-regarded reputation for publishing shorter (10-12,000 words) books that fit our modern reading habits and lifestyles. People are demanding condensed but still comprehensive books that go to the essence of their subject matter. The genre has inspired new authors previously daunted by the prospect of writing full-size typescripts and facilitated a radically shorter journey from ‘concept to bookshop’.

Our job is to work with you to make it happen. If the advertising copy line wasn’t already taken, we’d be saying that… ‘we do all the hard work, so you don’t have to’. Take a look at our ‘Guide for authors’ to get a better idea.

Within Bite-Sized books we have skills you don’t normally find in a conventional publishing house.

Of course we’re good at editing, and doing the publishing and printing bit, and our team of graphic designers and illustrators know a thing or two about creating attractive covers.

But we add lots of business experience from our collective careers too. Nowadays you need very sophisticated channels to market and mastery of social media. Plus the complex alchemy of the synergy of mixing multiple media, from text, to print, to audio, to video and onwards to live events.

You could say we’re a publishing house, a PR and Ad agency, and a management consultancy all rolled into one. Hopefully we’re just what you’re looking for?
