Sam Pearce – author and publishing consultant

Sam helped me publish my book, There’s a Book in Every Expert, which means she took care of all the formatting, communicating with printers, obtaining ISBN numbers and making sure it was released to booksellers. I’m sure there was more to it than that, but that’s why I hired her – I had neither the time nor the desire to learn how to do what she does so well!

Sam hasn’t always been a publishing consultant. She’s a former commercial graphic designer with over 20 years of corporate design experience both in the UK and Canada.

Sam started applying her passion for typography and layout to the art of books back in 2012. Since then, she has been involved in the design and publication of over 40 books encompassing a wide range of genres from business guides and self-help books to children’s stories and fantasy fiction.

She started SWATT Books as a means of helping independent authors to get their work self-published professionally, affordably, and ethically.

Sam now lives on the Hampshire coast with her husband Nathan.

In addition to helping other writers publish their work, Sam has written and published two books of her own!
