Self-Publishing? Looking to get your book in print but don’t know how?
Writing it was the ‘easy’ part, now you’re faced with the minefield of self-publishing – you suddenly need to get to grips with layout and text formatting, not to mention adding pictures and sorting out the contents page whilst encountering everything from PDFs to ISBNs!
Even for the computer ‘savvy’, it can be confusing.
Pixel Tweaks Publications is the imprint of Pixel Tweaks, an established Graphic Design business, managed by Senior Designer, Russell Holden. We count it a privilege to work with enthusiastic authors and assist them in seeing their literary dreams become a reality.
The self-publishing process is not as painful or as expensive as one might think and the whole process can take as little as two months to get from word processor to bookshelf. We offer a print-on-demand service which means a client can order any quantity of their book to distribute to local book shops, plus it will go onto online stores such as Amazon.
Up to the present day, we have produced scores of books, either under our imprint or for other publishers
Putting all my worries aside Russell walked me through the process of publishing my first book in 2009. Since then I have self-published a further three books all produced to a high standard by Russell. In 2014 one of which was shortlisted for the Lakeland book of the year. I strongly recommend Pixel Tweaks as the first port of call to all those who wish to publish but who like myself might need a guiding hand.

Russ provided tremendous professionalism in all aspects of publishing – delivered with humour and a smile. He made my task as an author so much easier and enjoyable. He was supportive and constructive and knows the business inside out.

Russ is the consummate professional, who always goes the extra mile for his authors. He is there to offer support and advice if you are having a crisis of confidence or suffering from writer's block, he offers advice without pressure. Helping rather than leading. He also has a remarkable ability to restore and enhance old photographs.
I would not hesitate to recommend his services to any author who requires the best presentation for any book of any genre that they hope to publish.

Pixel Tweaks has helped me produce three books to date. I totally rely on Russell's technical knowledge and professional expertise to get my books to print. He is extremely patient and supportive throughout the process. I have recommended him to three people, who have used Pixel Tweaks, and been happy with the service. I will continue to recommend Pixel Tweaks to anyone looking for clear advice and support in producing a book. I will shortly be returning to Russell for help with a fourth book.
