David and Kelly McCaffrey became joint owners of Britain's Next Bestseller in 2016.
David had his debut novel 'Hellbound' published by BNBS in November 2014 to critical and award winning acclaim.
Passionate about supporting indie authors and those struggling to secure a publishing deal, he had always been a strong supporter of original director, Murielle Maupoint's vision to revolutionise the publishing industry. 

"Kelly and I have always believed in Murielle's vision, understanding how difficult it can be to get published in what is a very competitive and hierarchical industry. We intend to maintain her original focus on crowd funding as an option for authors to secure a publishing deal and for readers to decide what gets published. Alongside this, we have developed opportunities for new authors to get their work out there via print on demand packages and a Kindle only option that comes with marketing and promotion included.  
Authors work so hard writing a novel. It's only right that they can see it become a reality and feel supported every step of the way. Fulfilling their dream is our only aim with the intention of finding Britain's Next Bestseller!'

David and Kelly live in Redcar and are also both nurses. They have a Jake, a Liam, a Cole and a dog called Obi. 

Britain’s Next Bestseller, is where readers decide the books that get published. No more editors, literary agents and slush piles. Simply, thousands of readers putting their full support behind new authors and new books.

  • And so much more...
