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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
SELF-PUBLISHING, TRADITIONAL PUBLISHING OR ASSISTED INDEPENDENT?
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.
It takes great courage to write great books. Find your courage and find your voice.

ASSISTED INDEPENDENT PUBLISHING
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.
Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change.
Ocean Reeve Publishing offers writing mentorships, editorial and design services, several print options (including print-on-demand, diital 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.
BOOK MARKETING MENTORSHIP
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.
OUR SPECIALIST 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.
We see the SUPERHERO in every author. We want to instil you with a mindset of success as you take your published book into the world.
