What is

PTO Press?

PTO Editing was established in Calgary, Canada in 1999 with the aim of improving writing and editing services for graduate students. With the muse firmly in hand, PTO Editing quickly expanded to include the publication of local history books, and helping other authors with self-publishing. 

PTO is a service solution for self-publishing authors, students, bloggers, marketers and anyone who relies on good quality writing to communicate. 

We specialize in Writing, Editing, Self-Publishing Consultancy, Historical Authorship, and Author Guidance. We deal in Canadian, UK, US, Australian and New Zealand English.

If you have a project in mind, just drop us an email.
