The First Step

We can produce paperback or hardcover editions, the decision is yours, as long as it does not contravene the current laws of libel, defamation, obscenity or pornography.

Your book will be copyrighted for your protection on a world-wide basis, and registered with the National Library of Australia and allotted a number from the International Standard Book Numbering System.

The manuscript should be sent to us, by registered or certified mail preferably, so that we are able to determine its extent. Please try to retain a copy of the manuscript in case of loss in transit — we cannot be held responsible for manuscripts in the mail, or in our possession. Whilst every care is taken, obviously this recommendation is for your benefit.

Manuscripts

We can accept your manuscript either in clean, typewritten form or on computer disk (either IBM or Macintosh format). Naturally a computer file is the most cost-effective method, because we can avoid the need to re-type it.

Please include a stamped self-addressed envelope with your manuscript so we can return it.
The editor will check for inconsistencies, typing errors, incorrect phraseology and to ensure it does not contravene the current laws.

If you decide against publication your manuscript will be returned immediately upon your request.

Costs Involved

We will supply an obligation-free estimate based on mutually agreed specifications.

No royalty arrangements are necessary, as you will receive all proceeds from the sale of your book.

The cost of producing a book varies from book to book. We will supply estimates based on the extent of your manuscript. Quantities also have a big bearing on the unit cost, so you will have to tell us how many you would like quoted, and specify paperback or hardcover or both.

The cost will be divided into three payments. First payment on supply of page proofs. Second payment on supply of cover and corrected page proofs. Final payment within 14 days of delivery of the printed books.

Distribution

Whether or not the book sells on its merits is naturally dependent on the content. We will guarantee, however, that the aesthetic quality of the book will more than compete with any other book on the booksellers’ shelves.

All aspects of production, editing, typesetting, design, cover design, printing and binding, are handled only by professionals fully versed in their particular fields.

We are not in a position to distribute your book: however we will advise on how to go about making your book as widely-known as possible.
