Why publish your book with Bannister Publications?

You’ve written a book or you’re in the process of doing so. The next stage is getting your labour of love into print.


Self-publishing can be hugely rewarding. As the author, you have ultimate control of every step of the publishing process in a way you wouldn’t with a traditional publisher. If you’re new to self-publishing or have had a bad experience with another publisher in the past, however, it can be daunting. 


Choosing a trusted and experienced publishing house presents the perfect opportunity to combine your autonomy as author with publisher expertise. 


Derbyshire-based Bannister Publications is a highly-regarded regional publishing institution. There are a number of reasons why we’re the publishing partner of choice for local authors:


  • Local network: Our 30-year experience of publishing has allowed us to build strong and longstanding local connections

  • Reputation: as the publishers of Derbyshire’s largest circulation lifestyle magazine Reflections, we have a well-established platform that can help to promote your book. Read more about the Story of Bannister Publications
