Acorn Publishing
In the beginning there was the word…then there was publishing…now there is self-publishing.
Acorn Independent Press Ltd. was co-founded by brother and sister team, Leila and Ali Dewji. Having both worked at world-leading publishers, they were frustrated that it’s so tough for talented authors to break through  Having seen too many great writers slip through the net, they combined their expertise to give all passionate authors a professional route to market.  They give all authors access to fantastic editors, designers and marketing managers and their high production standards ensure you will have a book to be proud of.

‘It’s an exciting time for authors.  Print-on-Demand and e-book technology have democratized publishing. Authors can have a slick self-published paperback or e-book on sale in a matter of weeks. Readers can be buying and reviewing their book at a click of a button.’ Ali Dewji

‘Whilst at a literary agency, I worked with some amazingly talented authors, some of whom have won literary prizes. When it came to pitching their work to editors at the big presses, the response would typically be something like ‘I absolutely love this and can see why you’re excited by it but I’m afraid I couldn’t get the necessary support from my colleagues in sales/marketing/finance.  It broke my heart every time and I knew there had to be another way.’ Leila Dewji
