Spending years creating your book can, at times, be a very lonely business. When the inevitable doubts set in as I neared the finish line on my book project, Julie-Ann's patient, practical and professional advice reaffirmed my belief in my idea and helped to make that huge (and confusing) last step between dream and reality a much less scary proposition. I can't thank her enough.

Pickawoowoo were recommended by a friend who has seen their ad on TV. I had been screwed for thousands of dollars in two previous self publishing ventures (USA based) and was pleased to hear of someone else who was in WA.
As we were travelling in the area, we were able to get an introductory appointment with Julie-Ann the next day and the human contact made a difference. During the publishing process Pickawoowoo responded immediately (within 24 hours) whenever I had a question or needed clarification. They were up front about costs.
They were clear in the advice they gave and yet always left any decision up to me. They were cheaper than my previous forays into bookworld. If you are sitting on the fence about publishing with using Pickawoowoo services then I would say, “Go for it. You can always have an introductory meeting and decide thereafter.”

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.

I was looking for a publishing consultant I could trust that would respect what I did and didn’t know as a first time author, and guide me to achieve the quality outcome I wanted. I think it comes down to communication and expertise.
The team at Pickawoowoo got to know me and knew what they could leave to me and I got to know them and knew what I could rely on their expertise for. They were like an extension of my team and I felt they genuinely cared about my book publishing project and were totally engaged in it.
Trust your intuition when it comes to Pickawoowoo. This is a team of people you can rely on to get your book published and if they say they’ll do it by a certain time or date, they will.
I do have one regret though and that is the project has come to and end now that my book has been published, but hey you never know; I might be tempted to write another book so I can work with the Pickawoowoo crew all over again!
