Professional Author Services

You See a Writer - We See an AUTHOR

Pickawoowoo provides individual OR end-to-end book design, production and publishing services for independent authors. We work to trade publishing standards whilst ensuring authors retain ALL rights, royalties and control.

Did you know that book publishing is undergoing its most profound changes since Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press over 500 years ago? Technological advances, plus cultural shifts in attitudes, have ushered in a new era for authors. No longer do you need a publisher - all indie authors can access the same platforms as traditional  or vanity publishers and you now have the capacity to reach a worldwide audience at a fraction of the cost. At the heart of the revolution is print on-demand publishing.

Our Services

Do you want to self-publish but don’t have time to learn all the processes? We can help! You do as much or as little as your time and skills dictate.

The friendly expert publishing team at PickaWooWoo will support you throughout the publishing process, from editing, book cover design, interior and ebook layout through to setting up with your chosen print and distribution platforms .. similar to the experience with a mainstream publishing house. Our 'Author Support Business Model' educates you through the publishing process and ensures you have a professionally produced, retail-quality book you can confidently market to your target readership.

The most important fact that you should understand when working with Pickawoowoo is that we help you set up as the publisher. Book distribution accounts are set up in your name so every dollar of net revenue, after retailer discounts/printing costs are deducted, is deposited directly into your bank account, NOT ours. 100% of everything is yours. This is a transparent, ethical publishing model. Your investment, your reward.  It gives you a significant advantage for book success when your efforts end in your pocket for every book sold.

 

If this sounds like the smart choice for your publishing goals, please contact us today. We’ll reach out, listen and learn all about your book and answer all your question before we start.

Testimonials

I loved the name Pickawoowoo, as a life long experiencer of the non-ordinary it seemed a no brainer to choose a company with this name. What really decided my choice was that I wanted to use Ingram Spark and Pickawoowoo was linked there. With services that assisted me to establish my own publishing company, have a truly appropriate approach to my cover art and someone I could call or email and always, without fail, get prompt responses I won't hesitate to use Pickawoowoo again. I also want to say that I am a total convert to having an editor look over my work, very tactfully done and I didn't realise how many things needed correcting.


Having used Pickawoowoo for the first book in a trilogy what I deeply valued was the trust I developed rapidly, not only of their business expertise and advice but of their ethical approach to business generally. Great people, great company. 4 1/2 star rating. 5 really but I guess I had best leave room for creative expansion.
