Book Publishing Services

How we help

Your book is a very public statement of your professionalism and purpose. It MUST contain carefully planned, well-structured and expertly edited content. The design of your cover and layout MUST say ‘classy’, no matter what style you choose.

I am very proud to be one of the publishing professionals in Australia invited in 2019 to join the judging panel for the Australian Business Book Awards. I do know what makes a quality book and I am delighted to work with authors who set a high benchmark for their own work.

‘When I handed over my manuscript to Bev, I didn’t know how much work was involved behind the scenes, although I thought I understood the publishing process from my research. After I started working with Bev, I realised how beneficial it was to work with a professional and an experienced person like her to help me effectively navigate through the process.’ –Helen Nan, author of ‘Your Best Life

When you work with me, I will be your one point of contact and collaborate closely with you to expertly manage the production of your book. I will guide you with the ins and outs of self-publishing, provide quality control, and manage the editing (if required), design and production team working on your book. All informed final decisions will be yours. You can relax and focus on what you do best, knowing that we will bring your manuscript to life and make your best book happen.

You retain full ownership of all IP, book files, and all profit from sales. I provide a set of book production services only, and help you become a self-published author with access to global distribution channels, and ongoing control and ownership of your own book.
