Publish My Book

Publish My Book
Are you a first time author? Do you want a manuscript published?

How do I get my book published?
Ulster Heritage will give you help and support throughout the publishing process, from your initial manuscript submission, to proof reading, editing, designing and printing. We work with a talented team to make sure your book is well-designed, converted to digital formats and is promoted. To start this process, send the first three chapters of your manuscript and a synopsis to We aim to read and respond to all initial submissions within 6 weeks of receiving them.
What happens next?
Once we’ve read through your initial submission, if we like it we will contact you to ask for a copy of the full manuscript. Upon receipt of this, we will read your submission in full and decide whether it is a title we want to place on our list for future publication.
Do you help with editing and proof reading?
As part of the process we will go through your manuscript in fine detail to make sure it is grammatically correct, makes sense and is up to a high standard. If need be, we will make editorial suggestions to improve the structure and readability of your book.
What about a book cover?
We work with illustrators and have our own graphic designer to assist with the production of a cover. If you have something particular in mind we will work with you and our designer to produce that cover.
If you publish my book, will you produce a digital version?
We can produce an eBook for your book. We create the eBooks ourselves and these are submitted and distributed to Amazon.
Once my book is ready, what happens?
When your manuscript has been edited, refined and polished, the book cover designed and signed off we will help you with promotion. We will agree on a date for launch and promote it across our social media.
What genre do you publish?
UH publish across a range of genres. If we like your manuscript it doesn’t matter what genre it falls under.  UH does concentrate on Irish, Scottish, and Scots-Irish works.
Do I need my own website/blog/social media to market my book?
Having your own blog means you can connect with your readers and share with them as much or as little as you like. With it you can build a following who will be keen to read more titles from you and find out about you.
I want publicity for my book, but I don’t want to blog/travel/appear publicly/give interviews. What can you do for me?
An author has to engage with his or her audience and that means promoting your book via any means possible. We can give advise on social media and marketing and will assist with the launch but other than that we expect you to attend signings and events. 

I edited my book carefully myself. Isn’t that enough?
No, you will benefit from having a professional proof reader and editor work with you.
