We fill that vital gap

ShieldCrest fill the gap between the major publishing houses and the other self-publishing companies.

Being print on demand publishers we don’t commit our authors to large minimum quantities

When we select a book to publish, we share up to 40% of the publishing cost and rely on the subsequent sales for the balance.

We cover all genres including, fiction, historical, biographies, children's books, political, etc.

We put your mind at ease

Whereas, no one can guarantee a book is going to be a best seller, it gives our authors the comfort of knowing we also have a vested interest in the success of their book.

We regard our authors as part of our family and offer a great deal of advice and assistance during the publishing process.

How do we achieve our top quality books and service at the lowest cost for our authors?  More information
