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.
Gypsy Wulff - The Compassion Project
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.

I am happy to report that I have just received my first print of my latest novel "Just a Little". I expected a good result from your team at Pick-a-WooWoo and I was not disappointed. In fact, I am over the moon with firstly the cover, which I think is sensational, particularly as you only had my old photos to worth with. Then as in my previous novel, the layout and formatting was first class. Please pass on my gratitude and praise to your amazing team. I recall how you first encouraged me to be an author and a self-publisher and for this I thank you. I did not dream it could be made so easy. Even more, I did not dare to dream that my books are being read by many hundreds of people. There is not doubt that being a self-publisher is a life changing event and I recommend your company to any budding authors. Thank you again.
Writing is the bit I am most interested in, publishing – not so much.
I had completed the first book of my trilogy and was anxious to see it in print, but the thought of embarking on the self-publishing learning curve was more than I could contemplate.
So I decided to put the question to Julie-Ann ‘could Pickawoowoo handle the whole publishing process for me’ if I simply handed over my manuscript – to my relief she said yes!
And even better, the process was completely smooth and professional – and I am absolutely delighted and satisfied with the outcome.
I guess it’s like anything – you get good at the thing that you do most, and in my opinion Pickawoowoo are exceptionally good at the whole self-publishing journey.
I’ve now had the second book of the trilogy published as well, and the third is about a month away – I will definitely be sticking with Pickawoowoo!
Thanks very much to Julie-Ann, Evelyn, Nicole and the whole team.
I chose Pickawoowoo Publishers after going to a Book Launch where they explained about your firm, so decided to give it a go. Well it has been a great learning curve for me in regard to learning about the way colour Graphics are needed. I would not have been able to contribute my end of things if you had not had patience to explain what I needed to do. The outcome is a very excellent presentation of the way I wanted my book to be printed. Using my design I could not ask for a better Cover that your firm has made for my book. Thank you for all your help, hopefully at a later date I may be able to produce another book. (With your help of course)!
