The Production Process

Pentangle Press are determined to publish work that is of a high professional standard.  We intend our books to be indistinguishable from work produced by a mainstream publisher.  So the first step in our process is to submit our edited manuscripts to rigorous copy and line editing. 

Our next step is to establish our publishing objectives.  The members of Pentangle Press are all writers of commercial genre fiction, and we are aiming at mass market exposure for our work.    

We want to publish in both ebook and paperback formats.  For ebooks, publication for the Kindle is the obvious choice, offering worldwide availability of our work on the Amazon websites.

For paperback production, we need the ability to have our books printed on demand.  We investigated English printers, and also Amazon's CreateSpace.   The English printers were more expensive than CreateSpace, and would not have offered the free access to Amazon's website that CreateSpace does. 

Against this we had to weigh the difficulty of getting our paperbacks offered for sale within bookshops.  After a careful consideration of the issues, we decided that CreateSpace, with its access to worldwide markets through Amazon, was the best choice for us.
