Company History

In 2006 Rex Sumner ran a UK marketing company with a number of personal development clients. These clients put on seminars and workshops at which they would sell their own collateral products, and most of them wished to have their own books. They used a number of publishers whom they would pay sums up to £5,000 to publish their book and provide them with a copies to sell.
They complained not just about the cost, but also that the editing would remove a lot of the message they wished to convey, for most of them used power language and NLP, which the editors did not understand and removed.
Working with Mark Riminton of Bright Ideas, who coined the name MyVoice Publishing, the company published books and supplied them to people in the personal development industry, creating CD courses as well as books. MyVoice specialized in understanding personal development and NLP, skills retained to this day. At this time the Vanity Publishing market was strong, and the cost of publishing a book varied between £1,000 and £5,000 depending on the complexity.
In 2008, the market contracted and Rex responded by publishing books for individuals who simply wished to write but were unable to find a publisher. This being a different market, MyVoice reduced the price of publishing to a no-frills £250, which did not include any marketing.
MyVoice became very skilled with layout and simple book covers, but concerned at the rise of self-publishing meaning huge numbers of books entering the market, many of poor quality and resulting in little or no sales. Therefore we decided on a change of direction, concentrating on educating authors to make their books better, improve their writing.
This was universally unpopular. Authors believe their writing is superb and demanded we start marketing as lack of sales would be the fault of the publisher.
In 2012 Rex started writing himself with serious intent, and developed a number of routes to improve writing, at the same time working on the marketing.
In the meantime, MyVoice Publishing Ltd was sold to a direct marketing company, causing the publishing company to be closed. In 2014 the direct marketing divested itself of the publishing company back to Rex Sumner who decided to operate it as a sole trader with a view to moving it into the cloud as an international company rather than a British Limited company.
In 2015 MyVoice became international in scope and Rex moved his base of operations to first Kuala Lumpur and then Bali, concentrating on research and writing rather than publishing but still releasing a few titles.

In 2016, MyVoice appointed James Jai Harvey as the full time CEO as the company prepared itself for its new existence as a resource for self-published authors, providing education, writing improvement, publishing, design, layout, book covers and the most important area of all, marketing. This last, of course, is not worthwhile if the previous areas are not addressed.
Now MyVoice is a fully fledged cloud-based author resource international company.
