by your side from inspiration to publication
Summertime Publishing specialises in publishing and republishing books by and for people living abroad with a particular emphasis on third culture kids (TCKs) and issues affecting the global family. Summertime's sister publisher, Springtime Books, publishes books in other expat genres.
We are a partner publisher, so we charge a fee for our editing, mentoring and production services. As a result, we pay an exceptional royalty of up to 60% and offer generous discounts of up to 50% on book purchases. We also offer a scheme for authors to offset some or all of our fees by buying books for personal sale.
Our strength lies in our 'by your side from inspiration to publication' approach. We offer a flexible, bespoke service starting with as little as a thirty-minute brainstorming session right through to a full publishing package with distribution to all major global online retailers.
Founded in 1997 by Jo Parfitt, who is herself an expat and has written over 30 books, Summertime is a global organisation with an extensive international network and a team based in North America, the Netherlands, South Africa and England. We have published well over 90 expatriate books from 50 exceptional authors. Could you be one?
