York Publishing Services - A complete quality self publishing service.

  • To Clare and the ‘Gang’ Thank you very much for the book and your efforts are fantastic!! Thank you so very much and all my best wishes Paul Bradley ‘Galaxy of Stars’
  • Dear Clare I am absolutely delighted with the book you have designed for me, especially the front cover and all the photographs. I am already receiving praises from people who now have a copy. I’m enclosing an invitation to the book launch and do hope you will be able to come and bring with you other staff who are able to have time off for the event. With my sincere thanks, Janet Pigott (Ancestral Tales)
  • Dear Duncan Clare Nerys and Paula Delighted to get 2 advance copies of the book. It looks and feels just the way we wanted it, and the interior typesetting is great to read. Thank you so much for guiding us novices through the process. Liz and Glyn Wainwright (The Girl who wasn’t good enough)
  • Dear Clare Words fail me – which is very unusual for a writer and erstwhile teacher. Guess What? I can’t find a single mistake or need of correction. You need massive congratulations for your supreme and excellent efforts. I would award you four gold stars and a massive amount of ‘house points’. (Mike Arkinstall A Thousand Years of Venice)
  • Dear Clare I have received the further 80 copies of ‘Snapshots’. The book looks good, and I am grateful to you for designing it and steering it to completion. As I have already said it was a pleasure working with you and YPS. (Gordon Thyme)
  • Dear Clare Thank you so much for supplying the final ten copies of my dads book ‘Another Tack’. He definitely perked up when he saw the final copy and asked for a few copies to be given to the nursing staff. Can I take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to yourself and Duncan. This has been a dream for my Dad for a number of years and working with York Publishing has allowed this dream to materialise. I greatly appreciate all the advice given and the warm and friendly approach throughout the entire process. It has been a very enjoyable experience working with York Publishing and we are delighted with the final product. Many thanks Anna MacLellan
