About Us

About FingerpressFounded in 2010, we're still a young publishing company by just about any scale, but we're already making a name for innovative travel e-guides and razor-sharp, high quality fiction - watch out for paper cuts!

Our novels are all available in both Kindle and paperback editions, and we're about to release our full range of titles for Apple iBooks.

Fingerpress is a member of the Independent Book Publishers Association (US) and the Independent Publishers Guild (UK).

Fingerpress Editing Services

Fingerpress editing services

Our in-house editors know exactly what a marketable, saleable novel should look like. If your manuscript needs attention - whether it's an independent critique, an in-depth structural edit, or a copy-edit to give it one last polish before you send the book to an agent or publisher, we can help.

The editing service is completely separate from our publishing business!
Fingerpress sources new books from an already established pool of writers, and via third-party services such as Bowker Manuscripts. In the rare cases where we do accept unsolicited manuscripts, it's absolutely not a requirement that it was edited by our team first. We never ask anyone to pay to publish their book with us!

Of course we don't guarantee bestseller success, but we'll cast an expert eye over the manuscript and give the same kind of impartial, honest, in-depth advice that we give to our own authors. To find out our competitive rates for this one-of-a-kind editing service, please email: editing@fingerpress.co.uk
