All our services can be tailor made to your specific needs and objectives
This form of publishing is popular with people who want to publish their books with a reputable publisher who will take care of the cover design, typesetting and layout, ISBN number and barcode and printing, at a fee.
We have a professional team that handles everything in-house, with the highest standard of quality and customer service you’ll find. So, you don't have to worry about anything.
We are selective with the books that we accept for assisted publishing, and unfortunately, we do not accept the following genres: Poetry and Short stories.
This model works best for entrepreneurs, professional speakers, and coaches who want to partner with a reputable publisher on their book. The end result is a professionally published book, worthy of any global bookshelf.
Your business has a story, its' that story which will connect it to more potential customers.
Your clients don't really care about the branded coffee mugs and lanyards you give them and neither is your staff. What they will care about is a story which will inspire them and add value to their lives, and your business' story can do just that.
We help you to craft that story so that your potential customers can get a feel for what your company is all about, its values, mission, history and DNA.
We also help companies in creating lead magnets in the form of ebooks, checklists or reports. This is a great way to get customers to share their information with you in exchange for a free ebook, checklist or report.

Do you think that your book should be traditionally published?
Traditional publishing isn't for everyone, only books which offer a fresh perspective, are globally marketable and relatable will be considered for traditional publishing.
Traditional publishing is where the publisher, after evaluating your manuscript, accepts it for publishing. This process of evaluation and planning usually takes anything from 3 to 8 months or longer. The publisher bears all the costs to publishing and marketing your book and you as the author will receive a certain royalty percentage from the books sold or from the net sales of the book (typically between 10 - 18%).
Do you believe that your book is bookshop worthy?
We're a registered vendor for Exclusive Books, with access to stores such as Bedford Centre, Rosebank Mall, Menlyn, Mall of the South, Mall of Africa and others.
This isn't a financially feasible option for every author because of the strict terms that Exclusive Books has, such as us having to supply them books at a 50% discounted rate on the RRP, as well as them taking books on a sale/return basis so whatever doesn't sell after 2 months they will send back to us and we'll have to credit them. We also charge a once-off fee of R 2 000 and we take 10% of all book sales, which leaves the author with 40%.
Each store is given our latest catalog and they pick the books that they have interest in, then we ship the books to them and they pay us within 60 days.
Books that seem to do well are fiction, especially local fiction, business and finance books as well.
