  • review rating 5  I recently published my first book. It was a book held in dream form for many many years and without the expertise, support and encouragement of the incredible Ocean Reeve Publishing team it would still be just a dream. I cannot recommend ORP enough.

    review rating 5  My first children's book Scooter and Friends Take a Vacation was published in December 2019, and it was Ocean Reeve Publishing that helped me accomplish this life-time dream. I was doing research on Independent Publishing when I found Ocean Reeve's website. I started a conversation with him via email and knew in short order that I wanted to work with him and his team. From the first thing they helped me with - an Appraisal of my manuscript - I knew I had struck gold. Ocean has taught me not only about publishing in today's world, but also about my genre. He and his team are very professional, extremely talented people whose knowledge of the publishing industry is profound. They made my maiden voyage into publication a wonderful journey, and I recommend them to anyone and everyone who is looking to publish in today's marketplace. I also took Ocean's Marketing Mentoring class and recommend that, as well, to anyone who lacks a solid marketing background - which was me in a nutshell. Kudos to Ocean, Jason, and the whole ORP team - thank you so very much!!

    review rating 5  Recently I had the second edition of my book "The Enchanted Time Traveller - A Book of Self-knowledge and the Subconscious Mind", published through Ocean Reeve Publishers. It was quite an experience going through the editing phase of this book. This time I had added a preface and additional chapters to the book. The approach to editing I found was very comprehensive, challenging and professional. The editor was more knowledgeable than me in many ways and required me to give attention to details I had taken for granted. It was a good exercise for me to see things from a readers' point of view and clarify some points. I am happy with the final product, which I am sure my readers are already appreciating. I must congratulate Jason Smith, the Publishing Manager, and Ocean Reeve for their new cover design for the book. They have been most helpful all the way, and my patients like what they see and the job they have done. If you want your book published, I would highly recommend that you consult Ocean Reeves Publishing to turn your dream into reality.

    review rating 5  Jason (Publishing Manager) and his team were fantastic to liaise with for our client’s needs. Throughout the entire process, the communication back and forth was highly professional and any special requests were handled immediately. Given this was our first experience self-publishing on behalf of a client, we weren’t sure what to expect and had many questions, which Jason handled patiently and competently. Most importantly, we were delighted with the final product and will definitely engage Ocean Reeve Publishing again in our story-telling work with our Life Stories Mentor services. Many thanks Ocean, Jason and the entire team for helping our client to achieve their dream book launch!

  • review rating 5  What a fantastic journey with ORP - from the first moment I spoke with Ocean about the message within me I knew I had to share, to achieving my goal of becoming a published author, he and his entire team made it a captivating journey that has changed my life. You can't go wrong with ORP. Their integrity , skill and heart for the industry and their authors, is second to none.

    thumb Rene Michele

    review rating 5  I just published my first book with Ocean Reeve Publishing and I am so glad that I did it with their support rather than self-publishing. It was so great to have a supportive team behind me as I went through all the steps. I had no idea how much was involved in the process. I am so grateful. Thank you so much ORP.

    thumb Pip Coleman

    review rating 5  I have published three books in the past 12 months and two of those books were with Ocean Reeve Publishing. Ocean has a very professional team of people that handle every aspect of the publishing process with ease. His mentorship program is a simple step by step system which makes publishing for first time authors far less overwhelming. If you are looking to write that book that I believe is inside all of us, take that first step to realising your dream by having a chat with Ocean Reeve.

    thumb Donna-Leigh Perfect

    review rating 5  I have used Ocean Reeve Publishing twice now to publish personally written books just for my family and friends. One was a childrens picture book and the other was a play I had written. Two different formats and two fantastic results! I always receive a high quality product, they are easy to work with and go out of their way to help you. I will use them again, for sure!

    thumb Kellie Silver
  • review rating 5  Wouldn't trust anyone else to publish my book then the Ocean Reeve Team. They ACTUALLY care about the author, believe in their mission and are attentive to deadlines. They ensure they keep the author in the loop and offer services that extend far beyond expectations.

    thumb Lauren Minicozzi

    review rating 5  Amazing team, and I'm extremely happy with my debut novel. Ocean Reeve Publishing come highly recommended. They have a genuine love of books and publishing, and my experience with them has been nothing short of sensational.

You can’t judge a book by it’s cover but you can sure sell a bunch of books if you have a good one.

Publishing a book is a very satisfying experience. Whatever the reason you are bringing a book to life, it will become a large part of your legacy. It is important when looking at your publishing options that you do your due diligence on the potential companies and organisations you wish to work with.

We pride ourselves in providing quality trade standard books. This is why we offer tailored book publishing and marketing services to our authors. Self-publishing is an option! However, it is managed by self, meaning you are leading the process. We do not feel that publishing and marketing a book should be a solo effort. As the saying goes – ‘it takes a village’ – this applies in book publishing as well.

We understand the value in creative expression and the vulnerability authors feel heading into the publishing space. In addition, the relationship between the author and the publishing team needs to be one of respect, care, and focus. Ocean Reeve Publishing is committed to your success and assisting you in achieving the goals and dreams you have as an author. So join us in bringing your story to life.

Self-publishing in Australia has become a minefield and we offer a fantastic solution. Assisted Independent Publishing. Book publishing in Australia, and internationally, has never been so easy.

We have found that once authors see what’s involved in Assisted Independent Publishing, they tend to prefer this option over self-publishing and even traditional. Why?

Self-publishing does not guarantee qualified editors, designers, and printers. In addition, they do not offer focused marketing or distribution support to the author.

Traditional publishers royalty rates are very low. Furthermore, they only market for three months at best, at which time they will move on. The exception is if the book makes the 0.01% club and goes wild.

Watch the video below to understand the differences between assisted independent, traditional, and self-publishing.

Ocean Reeve Publishing offers writing mentorships, editorial and design services, several print options (including print-on-demand, digital and offset production), eBooks, and audiobook production. However, if you do choose to examine self-publishing with us, you can select whatever services suit your needs.

For all of our authors who choose Assisted Independent Publishing, we also provide a dedicated distribution channel. This is where your book is promoted to libraries and bookstores. Above all, it is not limited to just Australia as it also includes several global online channels. 

In addition, we work with authors anywhere in the world. Our tailored book marketing modules support your journey no matter your location. Most importantly, our highly successful and popular Book Marketing Mentorship program. This personalised mentorship increases the profile of your book and you, the author. Let’s be honest – the goal in marketing is awareness and sales. Our professionally trained and experieced mentors will tailor your marketing journey to achieve exactly that.

One of the biggest hurdles that most authors find when publishing a book is within the marketing process. Fundamentally, authors are not born promoters. In fact, they are usually quite resistant to promoting as it is not something that comes naturally to them. We understand this.


After working in the educational, traditional and self-publishing industries for two decades, our CEO and lead Marketing Mentor Ocean Reeve recognised this problem. He discovered, after working with over 4000 authors, that only a small percentage of those who self-published had actioned a reprint of their books. This was due to two factors:

1) It took so long for the authors to sell their books that they lost interest.

2) They hadn’t sold their books, so they just gave up.


The solution was obvious. Calling on his experience and knowledge built throughout his career, Ocean devised a tailored marketing program that would change the game for all authors. The effect has been profound as this has not just affected the self-published authors, but also traditionally published as well. Moreover, in this new age of book publishing, authors are expected to be involved in book marketing.

Therefore, Ocean produced a foundation; establishing a program for authors, tailored for each individual creative. In addition, this is supported by 20 independent modules that offer strategies and tools for authors to then implement. The resulting outcome is book sales. The popularity has meant that we have had to take on a second mentor, Joshua Clifton, who has actually completed the mentorship himself and achieved great succeses with his book and his profile as a serious author.

Ocean had now discovered that 70% of the authors that follow the mentoring guidance given make a full return on investment within 4-6 months of launch. From that, 30% of those authors have achieved this within the 3-week pre-sale period. After mentoring over 350 authors, the Book Marketing Mentorship has had very positive results.

Ocean Reeve Publishing - The Team


Your book is a legacy and the emotion attached to it needs to be valued. Our team ensures your creative journey is smooth and enjoyable. Secondly, we want you to have a quality publication that you can be proud of. In addition, we want you to be confident in your marketing. Finally, we want you to succeed!

As mentioned above,  there is no guarantee with self-publishing that the editors working on your book have the necessary qualifications. Furthermore, it is not enough to settle for a teacher, a journalist or someone who is great at English. However, we pride ourselves in only using professionally qualified appraisers and editors.

Similarly, the same applies to our design team. They have been professionally trained and qualified. To highlight this, self-published authors often download templates. Or worse, attempt to design their book themselves or pay someone who has never done it before, eg Fiverr. Moreover, we pride ourselves on our high quality. We ensure that the look and feel of your book meet industry standards. 

Equally, our book printers are specialist book printers. Likewise, our website creators, sound engineers, and video team are all highly trained and qualified. Our entire team takes immense pride in what they do.
