I’ve just began my relationship with Cassie. I am a novice who needs hand-holding. She has given her professional review of what my story needs before we go to copyedit stage. I’m highly appreciative of her experience, insights and support in my first attempt to self-publish. May I take this opportunity to thank you Cassie.

Cassie has a remarkable wealth of experience, which was reflected in her approach to my request. It was a pleasure to work with her, she was professional, approachable and knowledgeable in her field, completing my requirements in very good time. I can highly recommend her services and would definitely want to work with her again.

“Cassie Fox/Schmublishing were a brilliant help to me. As an aspiring author, I was pretty much at sea about the process. Her deep knowledge of the industry made her advice spot-on and crystal clear. She had great contacts in the business. She worked extremely quickly and thoroughly, and came up with ideas and solutions I could never have had on my own – all at a very reasonable price. On top of that, she has a natural empathy which helps her understand projects and what you want quickly: she was a pleasure to spend time with. I thoroughly recommend her and Schmublishing!”

Again Cassie Fox/Schmublishing proved their worth in both piloting us through the various steps and taking over the whole process.

Who needs a publisher?



Having worked as an editor of one sort or another at book publishing houses for most of my adult life, it initially came as something of a shock to me that an author might consider selling their book by any means other than getting down on their knees and begging a publishing house to do the honours on their behalf.

But, these days, nearly everyone knows how to publish a book for themselves. And anyone who doesn’t can Google it, click a few times, hand over their credit card details, and before they know it their precious manuscript is being printed and bound by a machine (or, simply, downloaded onto one).

Given the apparent simplicity of self-publishing, and the occasional tales of massive success for self-published authors, it’s easy to see why a lot of would-be authors are deeply sceptical of traditional publishing methods. People are even  questioning why publishing…
