A Bit About Me

If you've got a story to tell and want to publish it, we're a self publishing and hybrid indie publisher based in Australia. As a publishing coordinator, I'm the one who guides you from the moment you walk into our doors (figuratively speaking, now we're all online!) to when you hold your published and printed book in your hands.

Writing and publishing a book can be really complicated, and it's a long process. We understand that, so it's my role to guide you and make it as easy and supported as possible so you can focus on the creative part and feel motivated as you bring your story to life.

It's my job to communicate with the editors to make sure you get the best edit possible and feel confident and comfortable in approaching the edit when it's in your hands. As an editor myself, I know all the lingo, and I can help advise you on how to approach the parts you get stuck on. Then, once the edit is over, I communicate with the designers for you and guide them on creating a stunning book design for you - both inside and for the covers - so you look at your book and say wow. There's a lot more that goes into book design than you think, and it's my job to look through it and make sure it's trade quality and suitable to go into book stores, which have a high entry point. And there's lots more that people don't realise is involved in publishing either until they're wading through it.

So don't worry. All the confusing parts are in my hands, and I just work with you to get through it one step at a time, making sure it fits your needs and book vision right up until the incredible moment it's in your hands (and then I'll be handing you a tissue, because that's when the emotions kick in at all the hard work you did).
