About Candy Jar Books

The whole Candy Jar team is heavily involved in the production of our books in one way or another, whether this is during the editorial stages (as editor, proof reader), the design stages (blurb writing, typesetting or cover design) or the promotional stages (via social media, writing press releases and selling through our shop). We work solidly as a team to bring our readers the books they love.

We are working to expand the business and, in doing so, provide our fellow bookworms with the chance to work with us, so if you are interested in joining a dynamic team please keep an eye on our jobs section here.
