Who are we?
Accomplish Press is an innovative, author-focused company based in the UK. Established in 2011 by Tolulope Popoola, we are proud to take a different approach to helping authors with writing and publishing their work.
We offer Coaching, Self-Publishing Courses, and Consulting services for aspiring authors. Our focus is mainly on authors who are writing contemporary fiction, literary novels, memoirs, business books, general fiction novels and children’s books for the Black British and African/Diaspora market. This section of the population is largely ignored by large mainstream publishers but we are perfectly positioned to cater to the needs of our authors and readers in a rapidly changing industry.
