Self Respect! - The Best of Self-Published Authors
Do you have a book in you that you would like to see in print?
Matador has been offering authors a high quality service since 1999 and is one of the most effective publishers whose focus is entirely on supporting self-published authors. Part of Troubador Publishing Ltd, Matador offers a wide range of services aimed at publishing, marketing and distributing books and ebooks to a high standard through online and traditional bookshop distribution.
Matador has deliberately established itself at the quality end of the self-publishing market… quality of content, design, production and distribution. They work in partnership with their authors, most of whom publish with them as they are serious about their self-publishing, wanting a high quality book or a real chance at getting their work distributed and read. As a result, they are the UK’s most widely recommended quality self-publishing service.
“Matador is a highly reputable partnership publisher offering an author the best chance of self-publishing success in the UK.” Mick Rooney, Editor of The Independent Publishing Magazine
"Matador has the best values in their industry. They actually try to sell books. It sounds crazy, but their rivals don't." The Writers' Workshop
