Why TGH?

The Good House is dedicated to doing good, knowing that good things always occur when good people create them...that's why all of our books end up on the Amazon best-seller list, and our podcasts are frequently sponsored and collaborated with. 

We publish awesome inspirational books
 

We believe that everybody has a uniquely powerful purpose and writing your personal wisdom in a book ensures that you will leave your mark on the Universe and share your knowledge with the world.  The Good House is specially designed to combine all the benefits of having a publisher with the freedoms of self-publishing without compromising control, creativity or copyright. 

We understand the problem
 

In the past, publishing a book has been difficult as traditional publishers will rarely take a chance on a new voice or talent. Even worse, they sometimes take away creativity, control and copyright. Self-publishing companies aren’t great either as they often lack expertise in a particular field and are not concerned with the quality of their books.  Even if you decide to go at it alone, you’ll likely find that obtaining ISBNs and negotiating retail discounts is beyond your interest and expertise.

A place to create where everybody wins
 

We take pride in our authors retaining full creative control over their work without compromising their vision. Each author works closely with a professional team to ensure their book is a professional and true reflection of who they are. We are specifically dedicated to publishing inspirational titles and we only work with a small number of authors per year to ensure quality from the inside out.

Check out our unbeatable publishing process
 

We know that both traditional and self-publishing has it's issues so we have collected the best aspects of both and put them together to create a publishing process where everybody wins.

Why we're so good?

 Bespoke 1-1 Service

Our authors receive customised support no matter how far along they are. At every stage of book production, our authors can contact their mentor, editor, or designer. 

 Expert Mentoring 

We specialise in the field of well-being books and know the market better than anyone else. Our knowledge of wellbeing styles, formats and trends allow us to assist you in creating a book that is both current and unique.

 

 Limited Authors

Unlike self-publishing houses, we do not publish everything that comes our way because it’s equally important to us to work with great people as it is to publish great books. We carefully select individuals who share our values, ethos and quality. 

 

 Full Creative Control 

Our authors stay in creative control of their titles. From its content and tone to its look and feel, our authors are able to work alongside a professional team to produce a product that is an authentic expression of who they are. 

 Environmentally Friendly Worldwide Distribution 

Through updated and advanced technology, regular customised print runs of your title will be carried out to meet demand. This means that your book will never be out of stock and will never go out of print. This system spares you from the cost of printing books in large quantities and paying warehouse fees. 

 Generous Royalty Payments 

Other publishing routes result in the author receiving less than 10% of the book's profit after distribution charges, printing costs, customer returns and retailer fees are deducted. In fact, sometimes, Amazon alone can take 60% of your earnings. However, The Good House negotiates excellent rates with retailers so our authors get upto 50% on their retail price and don't have to pay for returned books.
