Getting Started




The Process

We have been providing assistance to self-publishers since 1998 and during this time have helped produce many titles in a whole range of different categories.

Our emphasis is on carefully guiding people through the various steps involved in publishing a book and ensuring that the book retains its author's style and personality.

If you are seriously considering self-publishing, we suggest that a meeting with us earlier rather than later in your project timetable would be time well spent.



The initial consultation is provided free of charge (valued at $250) and provides the opportunity to assess what needs to be done to achieve your goals.

Before you come you need to consider:

Is the book purely for the family?

Is the book for a club or organisation celebrating a milestone in their history?

Do I want to publish for mainstream readers?

Do I need editing or proofreading help?

Do I need help with page layout & design?

How many copies do I need?

      What size should it be?

      What type of binding do I want?

      Is Indexing required?

      Is there a family tree or timeline to be included in the book?  

           (see sample at foot of link page)



Our discussion will determine:

Book size & quantity 

Layout & design 

Picture reproduction & placement 

      Binding options (see samples)

      Indexing requirements

ISBN requirements 

Marketing & distribution options
