ShieldCrest are very proud of their achievements over the years and the extent of the positive feedback from their authors. It is even more rewarding when the industry recognises it with awards.

Following our success in both 2018 amd 2019 when we were awarded Best Publisher by SME Business Journal, we were delighted to learn from Prestige Awards that they were awarding us Best Publisher for 2021.

Also at the awards ceremony were Steve Robson and Samantha Murphy, Customer Service Manager for ShieldCrest.

They described Shieldcrest Publishing as an experienced and proficient publishing company with an impressive track record. In the 12 years since opening, the publishing experts have seen notable expansion and their clients have grown exponentially from homegrown UK writers to authors from all across the world.

While these numbers have continued to grow, Shieldcrest carefully manages all new authors, enabling them to continue providing the kind of high quality service their existing authors have come to expect. The professional, highly skilled team is able to offer all the help and advice an author needs.

Shieldcrest Publishing partners with authors on a shared risk basis and invest in them, meaning that while new writers feel supported, they are also comforted by knowing the publishers have a vested interest in their success. They have a range of marketing services to help achieve sales lift-off for their author’s books and provide a variety of options during releases, including a dedicated author web page with an online book purchase facility to stimulate early sales. Services available at Shieldcrest include e-books, book illustrations, reviews, proof reading, editing and press releases. Global distribution is offered through Amazon and other major online retailers and their books are available through all High Street bookshops.
