Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

NCS Publishing is an independent, highly professional publishing house specialising in the print and digital production of quality books and magazines. Our staff are experts in design and print, ensuring the creative production service – from editing to launch – consistently produces material of a superior standard. Authors who choose to self-publish through Network Creative Services are guaranteed a product to rival any mainstream publication.

In 2002, Network Creative Services formed its boutique publishing division with the aim of delivering quality publications across a select genre spectrum. NCS Publishing’s team of expert editors, designers, typographers, and printers ensure your publication meets a standard of excellence worthy of the written words within. Our award-winning freelance publishing section guarantees an end product to rival any multi-national publisher. We also offer a limited fee-for-service for authors wishing to self-publish their manuscripts. For too long, writers who chose this option have had to endure poor workmanship from suppliers eager to sacrifice quality for profit.
