About Fryup Press
Here at Fryup Press we pride ourselves in giving a friendly, helpful service. We are a small rural publishing business with a only a few published authors on our list whom we can spend time on. We have also helped several other authors to self-publish their own work with great success. All the books are written by country people for all who love the countryside.
We can give you an honest opinion on your work and help you to the next stage of publishing, should we decide not to publish the book ourselves. To those new to publishing, who may consider self-publishing their work, we can offer free advice and guidance throughout the process. If you need extra help we offer reasonable rates for work on the layout, formatting and cover design. We can produce your work as pdf files for both the manuscript and the cover in a format acceptable to printers. Once your book has been formatted we can obtain an estimate for the printing, regardless of how few or how many books you would like.
We are not a vanity publisher and make no false claims about sales or ask for any money up front. We either take on your work at no cost to you or you pay only for the services you require.
Three of the books published by Fryup Press have won national awards with the David St John Charitable Trust in conjunction with Writers' News and Writer's Magazine, the only magazines published solely for writers. These were:
'Riding for Life, a Journey across the north of England' by Ann Bowes. This book won the cup in the class for self-published books for charity. It also came second overall in all classes of self-published books.
'Bilberry Pie and other tasty tales.' This was written by members of the Egton Bridge Writers' Group and was voted the best anthology of the year.
Cheques and certificates were received for these two books in consecutive years at prize-giving ceremonies at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate.
'Friends Forever' by Ann Bowes was runner-up in the self-published fiction class where the author received her prize-winning cheque and certificate at Author's House in London.
