“The new benchmark in publishing.”
Author of The Nathan Hawk Murder Mysteries.
Screenwriter of Agatha Christie’s Poirot, and Midsomer Murders
“Spiffing Publishing is the new benchmark in publishing. It’s a far cry from both vanity publishing and the ever narrowing world of mainstream publishing. The company’s work begins with superb and arresting design, something most authors know little about. It goes on from there to combine their expertise in marketing with constant support for their writers. You will never feel you’ve been left stranded.
To me, Spiffing Publishing represents the future of an industry that has long been wondering where to turn next.”
“I can't praise Spiffing Publishing enough.”
Author of The Secret of Villa Favoni and Sunship
“I can’t praise Spiffing Publishing enough … friendly, supportive, and patiently guiding me through every stage of production. They are a delight to work with.
With their creative minds, they have produced a unique and wonderful ‘pick me up and read me’ style for my book covers and put great care and imagination into designing my website and Instagram posts, giving them the same distinctive and eye-catching treatment.
Thank you, Spiffing; I would most highly recommend you to any writer thinking of self-publishing.”
“Working with Spiffing was a great, fun, and professional experience.”
Author of Daisy Does it Herself
“From the moment I started working with Spiffing Publishing, I knew I had made the right choice for my book’s cover design. From our first interaction, it became evident that they were not only highly skilled but also genuinely invested in understanding my concept. What struck me most was the designer’s ability to accurately interpret my brief, even though I had a vision for my book cover but was struggling to articulate it.
Their approach was not that of a vendor but of a collaborative partner, who was as invested in my project as I was. This level of dedication and understanding was highly appreciated.
One aspect that deserves special mention is the designer’s flexibility and openness to feedback. At every stage, they were receptive to my thoughts and willing to make adjustments, ensuring the final product was aligned with my expectations. This collaborative spirit is the hallmark of a great designer, I absolutely love my cover and have received many compliments! In short, working with Spiffing Publishing was a great, fun, and professional experience.”
“I can honestly say Spiffing have blown me away every time.”
Author of The Detective Brook Deelman Mysteries
“When I decided to self-publish my first detective novel, I knew I would be entering a crowded market where first impressions were vital, starting with an eye-catching cover. Four books on, and I can honestly say Spiffing have blown me away every time, with covers that captivate both individually, and as a unifying series ‘look’. More than mere personal reward for all those hours of writing, these are covers that generate comments, clicks, and interest – exactly what any writer wants. In a world of celebrity authors and publishing powerhouses, Spiffing have given my books the very best chance of holding their own.”
“I’m already recommending Spiffing to friends.”
Author of The 3D Workplace
“I have worked with the team at Spiffing Publishing since 2021 in the design, editing and publishing of my book, audiobook and website: The 3D Workplace. I can thoroughly recommend them to any author looking for a full end to end service, expert and responsive and always willing to iterate to a great outcome. In fact I have already recommended them to two friends of mine both of whom then chose Spiffing Publishing as their publisher and are equally pleased.”
“Spiffing Publishing is a 5-star dream team!”
Author of Never Answer To A Whistle
“I had written a true story about being contracted to repossess two executive jets from Lagos, that ended up with two groups of Nigerians trying to find and kill me.
To protect my co-Pilot and myself, I took off without permission from Lagos International airport (not a good idea!!) and the Nigerian Airforce were up, waiting to shoot me down.
With the story ready, I now had a problem. What do I do now? My book needed editing, cover design, printing, worldwide distribution and marketing. Then somebody mentioned “Spiffing Publishing” to me! I went to meet with their teams, and what an absolute dream, they were amazing! As well as fulfilling all of the needs mentioned above (not least designing the fantastic cover design), they also went on to create my website, develop my SEO keywords, design and push my marketing campaign, all of which has increased the reviews and sales on Amazon hugely!! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Spiffing with a 5-Star+ review!!”
“I will be using Spiffing’s services for my sequels!”
Author of The Finding Machine
“I had been considering self-publishing for some time, as my novel didn’t quite fit into conventional genres. I spent months researching other indie cover artists but wasn’t confident any of them could create a beautiful cover that would do justice to my hard work as well as sell the book. What I needed was someone who would ‘get’ it. When I found Spiffing Publishing, I was simply blown away by the standard of their artwork and the range of services they offered. Not only did they create a perfect cover, they also set up my website, distribution networks, A+ content on Amazon, and social media posts. If you are in any doubt about their professionalism and fantastic team ethics, take a look at their portfolio and give them a ring. All of the Spiffing teams were outstanding and worked seamlessly together to give me the greatest chance of success. Shortly after publication, my new book won a top prize in the coveted AllAuthor Cover Competition. I still receive regular compliments on it. I will be using Spiffing’s services for my sequel early next year and into the future.”
“Spiffing are well above the rest in the industry.”
Author of The Daniela Trilogy
“In the nearly ten years I’ve been writing and publishing books as an indie author, the enjoyment and satisfaction of working with the team at Spiffing has been one of the most rewarding highlights. They are amazing professionals and deserve their leading-edge reputation positioned well above the rest in the industry.
Three qualities describe them well: Spiffing is quick and positive in their response to client needs; Spiffing’s subject specialists know how to navigate and leverage their clients’ interests in today’s demanding print, digital, audio and social media landscape; and they produce some of the best book covers I’ve seen.
Oh, and they are fun to work with, too!”
“I count myself lucky that they’re around.”
Author of Coccinelle
“I have only ever used Spiffing Publishing from the start (2018, and six books later) and been extremely happy with the outcomes, so why use anyone else? Importantly I enjoy the writing and the writing alone, and ask Spiffing to do the rest – the covers, the ISBNs, typesetting, ebooks and distribution. I count myself lucky that they’re around. They’ve done a great job on all my books.”
“Personal and professional.”
Author of Don’t Break My Rice Bowl
Spiffing Publishing has been exemplary in every way. My press team worked with their proofreading, typesetting and cover design experts to help bring Don’t Break My Rice Bowl to life. Service is number one with Spiffing. They answer the phone promptly and make the complex job of publishing a pleasure. Our book hopefully speaks for itself. It’s ‘beautiful, cover to cover’, as the jacket quote says.
