  • “A good read. You’ve inspired me to give it a go.”

    Jamie Jordan
  • “Mark’s Marketing MOT programme has got me back in the driving seat of marketing my business.  I now have a marketing strategy and a plan for implementing it, rather than the ad hoc method I had before. Since working with Mark I have changed my branding as I now have a clear vision of how I want my marketing to work and how my branding represents me. Thank you Mark.”


    Karen Chambers BSc PGCert Business & Personal Coaching
    KC Coaching

    Christian E
    Lecturer, Plymouth University
  • “Great presentation Mark.”

    Paul Andrews
    CEO, JIK Software Ltd
  • “I really enjoyed Mark’s presentation. He seems to have fitted about three lifetimes into one! Although there was a practical and useful element to his talk, it was the nuggets about Mark’s experiences that I have really taken away. I certainly recommend taking the opportunity to attend one of Mark’s presentations, if you can.”

    Michael Gordon

    Katy Fryd

Publishing books, ebooks and magazines

Writing and publishing long-form books, ebooks and magazines is hard work and not to be attempted lightly. These are not projects you can attempt in a haphazard unplanned way. On the contrary they take meticulous planning, dedication, passion and commitment, as well as technical knowledge.

Save time: talk early!

With over 20 years experience in writing and publishing everything from brochures to academic and commercial books, I’m delighted to share my knowledge with you. Having a conversation with me as early in the process as possible can be very helpful and save considerable time and heartache down the line.

Encouraging and editing…

Being a published author of six of my own books, as well as author of numerous marketing items, articles and digital content pieces gives me a great overview of the processes involved. This is not just my expert knowledge of Adobe InDesign, but also the solitude and mental discipline necessary to complete a book or long article. Having someone along for the journey, to edit and encourage, is very helpful. I’ve also been known to do ghost-writing!

Ebooks and digital publishing:

With so many formats for digital publications what are the best ones to choose and how can you do them? We’re here to help and advise, and we’re also happy to do them for you. We’ll lay them out properly and list them for sale via your own website or through Amazon or similar.
