Bar-Code-Isbn-5The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is the black and white lined graphic, with 13 numbers underneath, that appears on the back of the book jacket.

Compass Publishing can supply you with a single ISBN number for as little as £42.50 if you choose to have your books published with me.

You will need to declare your ISBN number on your title verso page and Compass Publishing will be your publisher. Understanding who is the publisher is really important – click here for all of the details, and what this means in terms of rights and copyright. 

If this is of interest to you, then simply get in touch by emailing me at, or you can call (UK) 02392 378625.

But I have a FREE Amazon CreateSpace ISBN, do I need another one? 
Yes. If you’re using a FREE ISBN number from Amazon to sell on their site you won’t be able to use the ISBN outside of their online store. More details here.
