About Us2018-09-25T16:20:29+00:00

The company was originally set up to allow us to publish our own books. After experiencing first-hand the difficulties unknown authors have in getting manuscripts published with the larger publishing companies, we decided we wanted to help others in this process. Our aim is to eliminate these difficulties and help to put your dreams and ideas into reality, whatever genre it may be.


Nadine Cole

Publishing Director

As long as I can remember, I have had a love of books and reading. My dream of being an author was overtaken by life in general and after world travel and many different vocations I have at last found my passion; writing books and running an exciting publishing company with my closest friend Jan.

Jan King

Creative Director

I grew up in the suburbs of South London. On leaving school I studied Graphic Design at the London College of Printing and also within a design studio in Soho. I have travelled and worked my way up to management positions, also learnt aspects of accountancy and the general running of a small business. Creativity has always been a central part of my life and I have never felt this enthusiastic before. I’ve never been happier now that I am able to utilise my creativity to its full potential alongside my dearest friend Nadine.

Yeliz Hakki

Illustrator/Head of marketing

In my mid-20’s I discovered that I had a talent for art and illustrating. I studied fine art and children’s book illustration in 2013 where I achieved a merit diploma. I also design tattoos and have a qualification in PR. After meeting Nadine and Jan in unusual circumstances I knew that Old King Cole Publishing would be something special. My creative dreams have been fulfilled now that I have joined the team.

We work with the very best. We are proud of our partners, who work with us to deliver the best in world class publishing.
