Sixth Element Publishing

The Home of Awesome Independent Books

Sixth Element Publishing is a creative and dynamic design and publishing partnership based in the North East of England. We love books, we make books, we write books, we help other writers write books!


“I’ve been working with Sixth Element since 2017. Their editing, cover design and print formatting services have ensured that my self-published work is of as high a quality as my traditionally published books. I love being part of the Sixth Element writer community at events and in collaborations such as the Harvey Duckman anthologies. Highly recommended.”

Author Services

If you’ve decided you want to self-publish and keep the rights to your book, but you’d like to work with a publisher and hire in specific author services, we can help.

Book Publishing

We publish all genres and types of books including paperback, hardback, eBook and audiobook. Our catalogue includes children’s books, all genres of novel, anthologies, memoirs and non-fiction.

Design and Print

As well as book covers, we design and print all sorts of promotional material including flyers, brochures, business cards, exhibition banners, stationery, menus and signage, as well as websites.

“Working with Sixth Element Publishing has been the highlight of my brief literary career. As an elderly first time writer I was given careful mentoring, re-assurance when in doubt and then offered a well worded professional contract clearly expressing the costs involved, but particularly giving me full rights of all material. The Robinson House Writers, the authors’ exclusive club, welcomed me to their fold and the ongoing meetings continue the professionalism.”

Book Projects and Writer Workshops

From inspiring a love of reading and books to archiving events and memories… do you want to know more about creating and publishing a book for your group, school, event or organsation?

We love working on innovative and exciting projects that culminate in published books.

“I can absolutely recommend 6e to anyone considering taking that first scary step into publishing your work, whatever format you may have chosen to work in. During all the time I have worked with 6e, through four books and two published stories for the Harvey Duckman series, Gillie and the team have been supportive and totally professional. Their friendly help and guidance have been invaluable to me in my career as a writer.”
