About us

preparetopublish is a publishing agency which offers professional editorial and typesetting services – specialising in books and magazines (consumer, trade and contract publishing).

We are based in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, but we’ve had clients in the US and Europe as well as across the UK. The company was founded and is run by Andrew Chapman, who has 25 years’ experience in all aspects of publishing; he is a Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP). His colleague in providing editorial services to book publishers and authors is author and screenwriter C M Taylor, who has assessed or edited hundreds of manuscripts for Writers’ Workshop.

We also have a network of more than a dozen tried and trusted freelancers who we can call upon to suit the needs of the project in hand.  Our business is to help you get your project into a suitable printed or digital format.

We can also source, commission and edit quality content for your magazine, as well as provide ghostwriting services for book publishers. We work closely with numerous printers and can advise on all aspects of publishing. We have regular clients for whom we produce a wide variety of books and magazines, but we are always open to discussing new projects. Samples of our recent work are featured in the portfolio on the home page.
