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.

On behalf of Peter Bell: I can recommend Pixel Tweaks unreservedly. Russell steered what I consider a very complicated three-volume book through the whole process with skill and ease and was more than helpful at every stage. I am extremely satisfied with the end product and it is extraordinary to see my book out in the world after so long an incubation. Many thanks Russell.
