A Word from the Owner:

As a writer and publisher of books myself, I decided to open a new business at the dawn of the desktop publishing era. With Apple's Macintosh computer, I used the emerging software—Microsoft Word, Adobe MacDraw—learning to word process and illustrate camera-ready copy.  We were then able to show our clients how to express themselves in text and graphics.

Since that time "the box" has revolutionized publishing for aspiring writers of prose and poetry. Warwick House has created children's books, genealogy, history, novels, and pictorials for a wide variety of people, most of whom brought us a disk from their own PC and we went from there to turn a manuscript into a book.

One of our recent clients was an Air Force Colonel who wrote artfully about a scandal at West Point Military Academy while he was a plebe and later his time in the Korean conflict. Editorial and proofing service was provided for him and a local artist provided an illustration for the cover. 

A commercial book manufacturer printed and bound the books. We assisted this customer in the distribution of his 1000-page history to libraries, mailing lists, and other orders placed.

This client's experience is an example of what we can do for you.  Our staff can provide any or all of the following: word processing, formatting, editing, proofing, illustrating, as well as ideas on marketing. Our office manager is the person to call for any of these services.

We are very proud of our work, and we can provide references from satisfied clients. Although we do not purchase manuscripts, our hourly charge is very competitive.

Warwick Publishers would like to hear your story.  The reward we get from reading your material is a bonus for us.
