Julie-Ann it gives me great pleasure to give you a testimonial. I was given two people to contact for help with the new source file for Alec meet Sheikadee. Luckily for me the first person was not answering and did not reply to my message. It was a fortunate day when you came into my life and became ‘my team’. I have been blessed with the most amazing patience and support. I am sure my inexperience would frustrate most people, however you and your team have been there to answer every question with patience and respect. You always give me the knowledge I need to overcome the challenge of the moment, and continue to do so with every ‘learning curve ‘ that comes up.
Your team of yourself; Laila Savolainen who has blessed me immensely by coming on board as my illustrator; Evelyn for all her patience - every time I miss something and have to make her do more work ( for which I have to pay, but that is part of my ‘university course in creative writing’); Eddie Albrech, copy writer extraordinaire who did such an amazing job on the back cover and Nicole who keeps the financial side running smoothly with her attention to detail and the promptness of her paperwork.
I have learned so much under your guidance. I have come from being a very green and novice writer with no knowledge of the publishing process, to one who is now far more knowledgeable. My writing skills have improved and I know how to access the help I need; be that from volunteer beta readers or professional people, when I find I am out of my depth.
Without you and your team, I could not have brought Joshua and Stranger Danger to a publication I am proud to share with the world.
I cannot praise you all highly enough. Your help is invaluable and worth every cent I have paid.

Thank you so much.

This is the second book I have had published. The first, printed in Perth, was an unmitigated disaster and the 200 copies I ordered were buried by my husband with his tractor on our farm… a very expensive hole! Understandingly, I was very wary with the publication of my second book. I visited Pickawoowoo Publishers after I saw their advertisement in the Bunbury Chamber of Commerce Magazine, noted the quality of their books and was very agreeably impressed. Over a period of three months I made corrections and changes and each time these were done briskly and returned to me for closer scrutiny. Advice was always forthcoming and freely given if I debated any point. Pickawowoo utilizes a network of highly trained Designers, Graphic Artists and Professionals who complement their activities. Costs are always quoted up-front, so one is fully aware of the process costs at each stage. When my published books finally arrived in the post, I was extremely impressed with their quality and was ecstatic over the beautifully designed dust cover. It took me 21 years to research this Family History and I can honestly say it is far more professional than I envisaged it would be. I know where I will take my next book for publication!
With sincere appreciation to Julie-Ann and the Team.
It was a pleasure working with Pickawoowoo, they were very professional. I did not have my source files, only pdfs, and the team worked seamlessly to recreate my covers and sort through the tech issues. They went above and beyond to follow up to get my books uploaded and print ready.

It is one thing having an idea and words on paper, but for a writing novice like me the world of publishing appeared both daunting and confusing. I quickly realised that seeking specialist help would help overcome these issues.
I chose Pickawoowoo Publishing after considering a number of businesses offering help for self-publishing authors. My decision was confirmed after having a detailed conversation with Julie-Ann. From this I concluded that their significant industry experience and a friendly, down to earth approach was exactly what I was looking for.
Clearly my books have benefited greatly from the invaluable advice and assistance provided in relation to editing, layout and design of the books. At all times this was done in a caring, helpful and very professional way.
To any potential client I have no hesitation in recommending the business. Many thanks to Julie-Ann, Nicole, Evelyn, Eddie, Laila and all the other people involved with turning my two books into a really great reality.
