Why choose Cahill Davis Publishing for your book?

Straightforward Digital Publishing

At CDP we believe that your book’s success is the culmination of 3 things:
  • A captivating story,
  • A polished cover,
  • An in-depth marketing strategy.

Successful publishing happens when authors and publishers work together to make a book the best it can be. We work with our authors to create a clear vision for each title and a bespoke plan for every stage of the process. Our involvement doesn’t end after the book launch party either. We publish a small number of books each year, as we like to be able to give each title the attention it deserves.


Our thorough editing process means your story will be the best read it can be. And we all know that raving fans mean more reviews, more recommendations and more sales.

Cover Creation

Eye catching design means readers will recognise and remember your books, long after they’ve read them. Your books will also stand out on bookshop shelves.

Marketing Strategy

Each book receives a bespoke marketing plan, including social media and local, regional and national media opportunities.


We don’t pay advances but our competitive royalty rates are paid quarterly, so you have a regular income. The average royalty rate for our authors is 40% of net receipts for ebooks, paperbacks and audiobooks.
