JJMoffs is a thriving independent publisher based in rural North East Nottinghamshire. We publish a broad, but select range of books in adult and children’s fiction, as well as poetry and some non-fiction titles. Our authors come from the UK, the United States and Eire, and the list is expanding rapidly.
Publishing has changed out of all recognition since our founder first went into the industry some 25 plus years ago and we embrace the technology that has made publishing accessible to all. That authors now have the opportunity to self-publish is a positive and exciting step forward, and we are happy to provide add-on services for those wishing to self-publish. As with everything, quality is paramount and we offer all authors, self-publishing or traditional, guidance and advice to enable them to be the very best they can be.

I felt compelled to write Ursu’s story, and having done so I didn’t know what to do with it. I had no idea whether it was good or not or how to go about publishing it in some way. I had never before written a book.
By chance I was introduced to Jane who not only gave me the confidence to publish, but also held my hand throughout the administrative process. A year on from publication in spring 2018, Jane continues to give me huge support. Publishing can be a confusing and challenging sphere. Jane understands the industry and underpins this with a very friendly, accessible style, and with honesty and kindness. I wouldn’t have published without her. Anyone publishing through JJMoffs is in safe hands.
Although I had self-published my previous books, ‘Misadventure, Mayhem, Myth and Murder’ was my first with a publisher. I chose JJ Moffs as it was a local and independent publisher and from the outset I knew I had made the right choice. Jane was consistently professional, courteous and honest, and her guidance and attention to detail was of the highest order. She kept me informed of the deadlines at each stage and left me confident the book would be finished to my satisfaction – as it was! The whole process was privately and publicly rewarding, so much so that I am embarking on two other books with her.
For anyone seeking to publish their first book, or for more experienced authors wishing to extend the scope of their writing, I strongly recommend Jane and all her team at JJ Moffs, Publishing
My Dad’s dream (then aged 86 years) was to have his poetry published. As family members we all thought that the poems were good, but we wanted an outside, honest opinion. Fortunately for us Jane was very impressed and emotionally engaged by what she had read. My Dad no idea how to proceed to get his work into print, but Jane had all the knowledge and drive that we needed to start the ball rolling and keep it going for the best outcome we could have hoped for. Her knowledge, skill, dedication and effort were wholly responsible for the finished product “Thirties Child – A living history in verse”.
The absolute joy for both Jane and myself at my dad’s excitement when he picked up his first copy of his own poems in print, is unforgettable.
Jane’s sincere and honest investment in the people she meets creates strong bonds and trust in her abilities. Without Jane, the book Thirties Child would never have happened. I cannot recommend this independent publisher highly enough.
