Book series: Publish your book in London!

How many UK publishing houses do you know? There are probably a dozen or even a hundred publishing houses that publish modern British manuscripts on a daily basis.

But how many publishing houses do you know that publish Eurasian authors in Russian and English and promote the book around the world?

There is only one publishing house of this kind in whole world that has no analogues and competitors – Hertfordshire Press.

For 5 years Hertfordshire Press together with the Eurasian Creative Guild (London) has been giving authors of the Eurasian regions the opportunity to publish their book as part of the “Eurasian Creative Guild (London)” Book Series.

Over this time, we have published more than 150 books in 12 languages by 200 authors from 20 different countries! More than 24 books were published as a winner grant of the OEBF International competition. Within the framework of this competition the authors were provided with financial support in order to publish the books of the OEBF winners.

The British ISBN will be able to enhance the prestige and significance of your book. Once your book has it, the book will be provided to the world’s second book depository – the British Library and the Legal Deposit – copyright repository.

In addition, the author will be paid a fee (royalty) in the amount of 20% of the funds received for each book sold. Authors who took part in this project will be able to present their book at the X international “Open Eurasian Literary Festival”, which will be held in May 2021.
