Companies we like

Matador at Troubador Publishing
Matador are a hybrid publishing company, part traditional, part self-publishing. Have a look at their website and see what you think. We like them and several Fiction Feedback customers have used them; nice quality production. And they’ll also sort out distribution and marketing!
Matador now offer a 10% discount on pre-press costs to Fiction Feedback customers.


Mslexia magazine is a serious writing magazine for women. We recommend it for the depth of its articles, its intelligent tone and its splendid competitions! Click here to visit the site.

Open Circle is a new publisher looking to provide traditional publishing – where all the traditional services of editing, book cover design, distribution and marketing are at the expense of the publisher – to exciting new crime writers. They’re currently not accepting submissions other than through agents and Fiction Feedback, but they’re shortly setting up a community forum for both readers and writers and this will make the site well worth paying a visit and maybe getting involved.

Kudos, run by well-respected Orbis editor Carole Baldock, is an online magazine which simply exists to inform writers about all current UK writing competitions. If you’re looking for opportunities to gain kudos for your writing, this is the site to read.

Talking Bookshelf
What a great idea! There’s nothing like the spoken word to bring a book to life, and a professionally produced podcast is a useful marketing tool and an engaging way of presenting your writing. They’re nice, helpful people too.
