Bob Carling

Hello, my name is Bob Carling


With 35 years’ experience as a writer, editor and publisher, I can guide you from draft ideas to successful publication. I can help you with:

  • professional preparation of manuscript
  • typography and book design
  • advice on the book market
  • placing your book with a reputable publisher
  • high-quality self-publishing
  • traditional print, print on demand (POD) and e-books
  • working with online retailers
  • website building
  • effective use of social media

I also write and publish in the life and environmental sciences and medicine. I am Managing Editor of Cultured Llama Publishing, publishers of poetry, short fiction and ‘curious things’.

Bob Carling is a consummate professional. His all-round publishing skills, attention to detail and client care are the best I have come across. He is a pleasure to work with and provides excellent value for his services. I would recommend Bob to anyone. Simon Barrow, Director, Ekklesia
