The Entrepreneur’s Publisher
RETHINK PRESS works with entrepreneurs, business owners, coaches, consultants and intrapreneurs to get their best book planned, written and published. We draw on 14 years of publishing hundreds of business and self-help books to bring the best possible service to our authors.
Through our author and publishing services we take your book through all the stages of publishing, from editing and proofreading; cover and interior design; typesetting for print and formatting for e-book; uploading to printers, Amazon and Kindle; listing with international wholesaler databases; managing your sales and royalties; to troubleshooting and supporting your marketing strategies. As a hybrid publisher, we work for you just as a traditional publisher does, but by paying upfront for professional publishing services, you the author remain in control of your IP and publishing process; then earn high royalties on commercial sales and purchase author copies of your books at low prices.
Our BookPlan workshops, BookBuddy writing coaching, and BookSmith services to get your book written with a professional writer, means we offer an expert, wraparound service to cover every aspect of planning, writing and publishing your book.
Each one of our authors receives responsive, personal service from Joe and Lucy, backed by Rethink’s team of top coaches, writers, editors, designers, illustrators, typesetters and marketing advisors.

“The whole process of working with Rethink Press has been a pleasure. Lucy is immensely knowledgeable on all aspects of writing and publishing and her positive, encouraging approach inspires confidence. Having gone through the lengthy process of publishing a previous book with conventional publishers, I was more than impressed with the speed and flexibility of the Rethink team.”Geoff Salmon
“Rethink is a great way to publish professionally while still maintaining creative control over your work. The editors are friendly to deal with, offering honest advice where it’s most needed. The art team brought my cover vision to life perfectly. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Rethink and will be publishing my next novel with them.”Tim Hawken
“In a world where the publishing and selling of books is getting so complicated and uncertain, these people are a revelation. I have had numbers of books publishing by several publishers but Rethink Press is special. First, they are nice guys and a delight to deal with. More important, they know what they are doing and do it professionally with creative flair. For me they are a find and highly recommended.”Patrick Forsyth
