Who Are We?
Founded in 1999, Candid Creation Publishing is an independent English-Chinese bilingual publishing house based in Singapore.
We provide a one-stop publishing service that takes individuals and organizations from idea to market. Our objective is to lower the barriers to getting published and to make professional publishing accessible to all and with a personal touch.
In contrast to self-publishing services, every book by Candid Creation is carefully curated by experienced professionals to ensure all titles meet the highest quality standard. Our professional services include consultancy, coaching, conceptualization, planning, project management, writing, translation, copyediting, design, illustration, typesetting, proofreading, printing, e-book publishing, distribution, sales and marketing.
We have built a reputation of being the publisher of choice for many renowned personalities and esteemed organizations, an honour made even more special as this was made possible through personal recommendations from the satisfied clients we have served.
We are book publishers who do not restrict ourselves to any particular genre of books but instead, seek to understand the needs of our authors in order to extract and express their voice through their books. We have helped hundreds of authors from the age of 12 to 80 to publish their books in both print (pbook) and digital formats (e-book). To date, we have published over 300 titles in a wide variety of genres that include categories such as: the arts, autobiographies, children’s books, critical prose, finance, humanities, literature, medical, music, personality profiles and self-improvement; among many others.
Candid Creation Publishing is a member of the Singapore Book Publishers Association.

Candid Creation Publishing is deeply honoured to have our logo designed by Tan Swie Hian, a living legend in Singapore’s art scene.
Artist, poet, author and linguist, who has published a translation of several volumes of Western literary works, Tan Swie Hian is indeed a man of many talents and Singapore’s most celebrated multidisciplinary artist.
The hummingbird in our logo is Tan Swie Hian’s favourite icon, symbolizing unrestrained creativity, fresh explorations and eternal freedom of the mind. In spite of its small size, the hummingbird possesses an extremely strong fighting spirit and is able to fly freely towards any direction or even hover in stillness.
In the words of Tan Swie Hian, “To me, the hummingbird is a fine symbol for the free mind. Its form is the udakacandra of birds and the mirage of bees. It is a living being which transcends time and space, lives in and travels freely between the worlds of the normal, the abnormal and the supernormal.”
