We work with authors according to their publishing needs. PickaWooWoo represents the future of book publishing today.
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.

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.

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)!
Thank you Julie-Ann and Evelyn.

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.
As an Australian based company Pickawoowoo offered me a “One stop shop”. They did everything for me and guaranteed all the services listed on their website to get my book published— I knew I was working with professionals with prior experience.
I was impressed that their advertising & marketing–showcased people who actually published books in Australia – I got my first glimpse of Pickawoowoo on TV one Sunday afternoon.
I learnt so much more on Publishing a book & the various software programs in the process with Pickawoowoo and now my book is being actually published globally & gaining an author platform. They provided all tools to publish a book, mentoring me and the guidance throughout the process especially when I was in doubt [which I was in most of the time] was exemplary including assigning my book to an extra-ordinary editor , thank you Eddie.
Working with Pickawoowoo gave me my dream come true (published author). The overall process from start to end, the coaching & mentoring through the process was unique—it's the first time I worked with such a dedicated team who assisted me every step of the way . I believe both first time authors as well as authors who have already published will benefit from their experience.
If you are on the fence with your book—don't be. Its guaranteed with Pickawoowoo! Believe me—My book is proof of this & it's an Australian company too, so the support is awesome, the turn-around time for emails is almost immediate, the coaching and mentoring has been fantastic , thank you Pickawoowoo—I will definitely do it all over again in my next book.
Thank you Julie-Ann for all your guidance and especially taking my late Friday afternoon phone calls & coaching me, thank you for responding to my mundane emails—I know you must have been overwhelmed by them at times—especially whenever I hit the “panic” button.
Thank you Eddie – you turn words into magic
Thank you Evelyn – for all your great advice and guidance & replying to ALL my emails
Thank you Nicole for the lovely tone in your voice and all your help.
May Pickawoowoo reach the stars always
Warm Regards, Ashika
