With Assisted Independent Book Publishing

Self-publishing in Australia has become a minefield. However we offer a fantastic solution. Assisted Independent Publishing. Book publishing in Australia, and internationally, has never been so easy. From our Brisbane and Gold Coast bases, we have been able to establish inspirational authors and marketing strategies that get results. Unlike other publishing companies, whether self-publishing or hybrid, we are committed and invested in our author’s success.

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 publisher’s 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 becomes a best seller.

So why should you choose Assisted Independent Publishing? It is a solution to the self-publishing minefield. All editors and designers are professionally trained and qualified. The whole process is managed by a publishing manager with the author receiving trade quality books along with marketing and distribution support. All of this is under the one roof within our Brisbane and Gold Coast offices.

Tips To Help Profile Your Published Book

You have a published book — now go sell it. That easy? Not necessarily. Here are four basic tips to help profile your published book online for free. Congratulations on having the courage and commitment to writing and creating a published book. However, of all the people that say they want to write a book only 10% will actually write something. Furthermore, only 10% of those will complete their manuscript. Again, only another 10% will wind up talking to someone in my position.  Why is this number so small? 

Simplifying the Creative Process – APPS

Producing an idea to develop a solution to the situation or problem is the “what if” stage, because once the questions have been asked, the natural step forward is to attempt the discovery of the answers; produce an idea. If I’m not happy, maybe I need to change my routine, get a new job, or write something new. If things aren’t looking right or correct maybe it needs colour, reconceiving, further application or to start again.

The New Age of Book Marketing

For a book to successfully reach an audience, there are two major factors that need to be given immense respect and focus; marketing and discovery. How do we inform our audience and how can readers find our work? Traditionally, bookstores have had a very large part to play in both of these exercises however the landscape has changed with such a massive online presence and audience. Therefore, for the new age author, marketing is primarily focused on building a strong online presence and strategy. Marketing needs to be addressed as more of a progressive and staged activity. It has to incorporate a variety of different strategies.
