I'm Ed Peppitt, an experienced UK publisher with more than twenty five years mainstream publishing experience. I set up Balloon View in 1999, to publish books for some of the UK’s leading personal development experts. As well as consultancy, I also run regular courses, workshops and seminars, helping unpublished writers to get published profitably and successfully.

Our courses …

Throughout the year we run a series of publishing workshops specifically designed for self-published authors. Look out for our new online book marketing course, as well as our workshop on how to publish eBooks like a pro.

Our audiobooks …

With our own audio studio facilities near Ashford, in Kent, we record, edit and publish professional audiobooks to the major audio retailer platforms, including Audible and iTunes. Here is a small selection of our audiobook publishing.


I’ve been lucky enough to work with many of the UK’s leading non-fiction and education publishers, including Hodder & Stoughton, Rising Stars and Harper Collins. But I’ve also helped hundreds of writers to self-publish their books profitably and effectively.

If you think my experience could help your project, then do get in touch for an informal chat.

I've been told, far too often, that I've got the perfect face for radio! But with my own studio (available for hire!), and full editing facilities, I can supply both my voice and a finished, edited audio product.

  • Video voiceovers & narration
  • Audio and video interviews
  • Podcast hosting

Twitter feeds

I tend to tweet as @thebeaconbike about my passions for cycling, lighthouses and research and insights into Multiple Sclerosis. I tweet as @edthepublisher about all things publishing, as well as the occasional rant at The Archers scriptwriters.
