Richard Grady – author of One Day Ahead: A Tour De France Misadventure





A superbly user-friendly platform – I couldn’t have asked for better assistance. As you can see, perfect and professional results can be attained without spending an extortionate amount of money! Big THANKS to the CompletelyNovel Team.”

Maria Parnell – author of Rags… To Bitches and Dogs





I absolutely LOVE working with CompletelyNovel. Years ago, I would have said this was all a far-fetched dream getting printed and self-published. Coming across CompletelyNovel by word-of-mouth was one of the biggest motivators to finally make it all happen – to finally do something with all of that writing and effort I had put into the years gone by. Very easy to use, and the books themselves, after printing, look absolutely incredible.”

Glenn Hough – author of Carnivale






“Signing up for Completely Novel has been one of my best decisions since I started writing. It has been great to have someone on hand to answer my questions, encourage and reassure me that I am doing the right things. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend CompletelyNovel to anyone looking to self-publish.”

Alison Boulton – author of Chasing Sunflowers

“Publishing through CompletelyNovel has enabled my biography of Samuel Pepys to be readily available to the public, with a minimal cost investment, and a very quick turnaround time. The quality of the printed book is definitely superior to that achieved with other publishers.”

Reviews from industry partners

“We’re ever hungry for exciting new talent here at Greene & Heaton and impressed by those who take the initiative and self-publish either as a way to get their writing career off the ground or as a personal project. Completely Novel offers a great opportunity for emerging writers and we’re very much looking forward to working alongside them and finding something that makes us fall off our seats with excitement and in horror that we might otherwise have missed it.”

Nicola Barr – Literary Agent at Greene & Heaton


“As a freelance ghost writer, editor and publishing consultant, I know how exciting becoming a published author is. But I also know much people worry about everything going right when it comes to seeing all their efforts finally come to fruition. That’s why I never have a problem with recommending CompletelyNovel; they really understand the world of publishing. Whilst offering a very reasonable and different (or could I say ‘novel!) pricing structure, CompletelyNovel also provide so much more for you and your book; you really can’t go wrong.”

Graham Schofield – Books from Start to Finish


“I find it really useful to be able to get my early drafts turned into books for the editing and proof-reading stages. CompletelyNovel allows me to do this quickly and easily, for less than the cost of a book in the shops – and the quality is great, too.”

Polly Courtney – Bestselling author of Feral Youth
