It will answer your questions and for the most part, highlight why Pickawoowoo is Australia’s only resource expert for the number one print and distribution platform for authors worldwide, Ingram Spark.

A publishing paradigm has evolved that shifts power away from publishers to writers. Traditional publishing roles are disappearing. Whereas, self-publishing is the new normal.

In the past many writers found the process of securing a publisher somewhat daunting. Times have changed!

The arrival of platforms such as Lightning Source, Ingram Spark, Amazon and iBooks, etc has opened doors to all writers. Consequently making the transition to a published author.

Self-publishing is how many of the most successful authors began, so get started today!

Whether you’re looking to produce a printed book or eBook is not the issue at this stage. The most important decision you’ll have to make as a writer is whether you’re committed to publishing professionally.

Beginning with meeting industry standards and/or securing a professional publishing partner or author service provider to make it happen. Many writers who have invested a vast amount of time in producing their manuscript, fail at the final turning of the page.

  1.  They take the first ‘pay to publish’ organisation, without investigating their reputation.
  2.  Layout the manuscript in word and provide to a local printer for bulk printing. Give it to another published author to help them because they have published one book. Or, have a ‘create it and they will’ come misconception with no thought to the process of marketing their title.
  3. Settling for second best, whether it be proofreading or cover design is not necessary. Know what’s involved.

Self-publishing is more affordable than many realise. It is a wonderful option for authors.

For example, authors whose books may have gone out of print or authors who wish to print small volumes rather than a garage full of books. As a author/publisher if you are interested in joining us as your publishing partner, Pickawoowoo can guide your book’s destiny with you at the helm.
