Welcome to LionheART Publishing
LionheART Publishing House is a publishing services company with a difference.
As an author herself, Karen Perkins understands the months and years of hard work that go into writing a book, and how important our books are to us. Having self-published her own work, she also understands how daunting this can be - and how important it is to present our books in the best possible light and have people read and enjoy our books. It is a great achievement to write a book, but that's only the start; as Indie authors we take on the mantle of publisher as well as writer.
Karen puts the book first - whoever has written it. She regards being asked to help bring a book into the world as a privilege and takes as much pride and excitement in the success of books she has worked on as she does in the success of her own books.
Having felt her way in the dark at the beginning of her own journey to publication, she very much appreciated (and still does) the support and encouragement of family and close friends, and was lucky enough to connect early on with other authors in similar positions, each supporting the other. She recognizes the importance of this support, and brings this attitude into every aspect of her work with authors.
In her role as fiction author she has written six titles in the Yorkshire Ghost Story Series and the Valkyrie Series, all of which feature in bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic, and is also proud to have been invited to contribute to The Hot Box - a box set of "8 Sizzling Thrillers by 8 Best-Selling Authors", which reached the top 50 in the Kindle charts, followed by The Cool Box - 7 ice-shattering thrillers by 7 best-selling authors, which is available now.
In her first two years as an independent author, she has sold over 50,000 copies of her books and her first Yorkshire Ghost Story - Thores-Cross - won the silver medal for European fiction in the 2015 Independent Publisher Book Awards, presented in a ceremony in New York.
Karen believes that there should be
no reason for a reader to be able to tell whether a book has been traditionally
or self-published – unless they look up the publisher’s name – and prides
herself on her thorough, accurate and professional standard of work. Also, as a fellow
author, she appreciates the emotional ‘trauma’ of the publishing process, and
works hard to minimize this as much as possible. She is always on hand to answer
She feels honoured to be asked to
help 'birth' a book, and never forgets the most important thing about
any book – the story. The reading experience is paramount in her mind whether
writing, editing or formatting.
