It took me twenty years to complete my first novel. I learnt lots of things along the way, not the least of which is that writers produce manuscripts ... publishers produce books. Any newly published author will tell you, there is a whole lot more to the process than meets the eye. If I hadn't met the Pickawoowoo team it would have taken me another twenty years to hold my book in my hand - if I got there at all. They have handled my dream with the utmost care and respect; juggled my enthusiasm, fears and naivety, expertly, and delivered something beyond my wildest expectations.
Lisa Mahoney - Storm
Being a first time author I was uncertain as to where to go or what to do next with my completed manuscript. The internet rallied with buckets of information, but too many choices and options confused and intimidated to the extent that I almost shoved my years of work into the too hard basket. But just in the nick of time I learnt about a publishing house recommended as approachable yet professional. I plucked up my courage and my manuscript and took the first big step into the world of books and publishing.
Jan Forsyth - Afloat and Adrift
I would like to thank the staff at Pickawoowoo for supporting me in the process of realizing my dream to publish a book. I felt that they were not only professional and knew the field well but also cared about guiding me in considering my options and making choices that I was comfortable with. I believe the combination of knowledge, skill and care is one of the best and I certainly received that.
Bohdanka Vagner - Bully Change and Trust
After looking at various options, I decided to have my book published through Pickawoowoo’s self publishing arm. The decision wasn’t made lightly. I had been offered a contract by a publishing company but was concerned that I wouldn’t have the control to present the book in the way that I wanted. It turned out to be a great decision.
