Lumphanan Press

The Lumphanan Press is a publishing house for self-publishers. We help to guide authors through the many different and specialised elements to self-publishing, providing the advice and skills necessary to produce a professional final publication.

We’re a small and friendly company, based in rural Aberdeenshire but covering the whole of Scotland, who offer a full range of publishing services from editorial through to design, sales and marketing. We’re flexible in our approach and are happy to take on anything from a quick short-story proof-read to a full publication package.

We also have experience of copy-editing for university academics and doctoral students, and can offer book-design & typesetting services to clients in the publishing trade. We have a particular speciality in the design and typesetting of poetry, although we work across all genres of fiction and non-fiction.

Please get in touch for an informal discussion of your project and to find out how we might be able to help.

Services include:
Editorial & proof-reading (covering both English and Scots), copywriting, indexing, book-design, typesetting, cover design, sales and marketing, ebook creation and more.
