Our job is to make self publishing simple — like working with a traditional publisher, but different.
We put online front and centre
Most books today are discovered and bought online. That’s true whether they’re printed or ebooks, and it’s especially true for self published authors. We use digital techniques from production right through to sales and marketing so that your book can be found and bought by anyone, anywhere.
You get more than just a book
Printing a book is not the same as publishing it, so our service doesn’t end with the delivery of a box of books. You get a complete publishing ‘platform’, worldwide distribution, and expert help with the sales and marketing of your book.
We charge a simple fee with no hidden margins or commissions
We’re in Auckland, New Zealand and employ skilled and experienced professionals to work on your book. At the end of it, you’ll have a professionally-published, bookshop quality book, you’ll have complete control over its marketing, distribution, printing and pricing, and you’ll receive 100% of the income from sales. This approach gives your book the best chance of success and ensures you can take advantage of all opportunities.
Publishing help from start to finish
There are many steps in a book publishing project. But most services stop at one or two, leaving you with big gaps to figure out. Our approach is different — we take you every step of the way. It starts with considering all the options and picking the right approach, then proceeds to final publication and beyond.
Publishing for an online world
Technology has changed how readers find and buy books. That means changes are needed in how to make and sell books. While we follow traditional practices for quality, we specialise in using digital publishing and online marketing techniques to reach and sell to today’s digital-savvy readers.
Keep control, keep all your rights
It’s important to us that you have full control and 100% ownership of your book and all aspects of its publishing and sales. So our service is like having a publisher to take away the hassle, without signing away your rights and profits. And no hidden ‘gotchas’ like expensive print costs.
Martin has guided and mentored me through the self publishing maze with patience, efficiency and ease. It has been a pleasure working with him to publish three books over three years. I could trust him and he helped out as needed, when needed. I do not hesitate to recommend him.
Working with Martin continues to be a delight. He has provided me with sagacious advice at every stage and is genuinely encouraging about my work. He not only understands the time honoured needs of publishing but also the things we need to do in the cyber world…
As a writer with no previous experience of publishing, I found Martin’s approach was systematic and professional through all the mysterious stages of publishing. He offered his knowledge freely and provided a lot of ‘how to’ information that I still use…
