In the words of our authors
'Joffe Books is a publisher who really value their authors. They’re friendly, personal, and very supportive, working with the writer to make their book the absolute best it can be. Their brilliant marketing led to ‘His Secret Daughter’ riding high in the Amazon bestseller charts – a dream come true!' Emma Bennet
"As a debut novelist, I was fortunate to be published by Joffe Books last year. Their marketing reach is simply phenomenal – in 9 months, my thriller has sold over 25,000 copies on Kindle and paperback, released an audio edition, and secured a film rights deal with one of the UK's most promising directors. It's been an exciting year!" Taylor Adams
"Since working with Joffe Books sales of my books have gone from strength to strength. I’m sure I would not have had the success I’ve enjoyed without them. They are excellent at what they do, but more than that are approachable and friendly." Helen H. Durrant
“The age of Kindle means that we can bring great fiction out fast and with everything, from cover, to blurb, to marketing, done in-house. I’ve applied some of the knowledge I gained as a successful artist to the publishing world. It’s a really exciting moment to be doing this, because for the first time in history, a writer can send us a book and within weeks, if everything goes smoothly, be selling their book and having thousands of people all over the world reading it!” Jasper Joffe

"Our writings are as so many dishes, our readers guests, our books like beauty, that which one admires another rejects; so are we approved as men's fancies are inclined. Pro captu lectoris habent sua fata libelli." Robert Burton, The Anatomy of Melancholy
