Brisbane Self Publishing


Do you have a message or story you want to share with the world? You’re probably already aware that there are people who’d be interested in your ideas, and ready to be enlightened (or entertained) by your writing. If so, our in-person and online workshops can help to quickly clarify the (often confusing) process involved in publishing your book.

What’s the next step to launch your book manuscript?

For every manuscript that isn’t brought to life, a great opportunity is lost for the author … as well as for the reader who is looking to discover that right message at the right time.

Yet figuring out where to start so you can get your manuscript published and into readers’ hands can often leave you feeling confused and overwhelmed.

Likewise, you may be worried that you won’t do things properly. You’re unsure about the correct process involved in self-publishing your manuscript and you don’t want to waste valuable time (and money) going down a blind alley. In fact, you may have been so focused on not doing anything wrong that you’ve ended up doing nothing at all!

But never fear! Our self-publishing workshops and webinars will shine a light on this topic so you’ll feel confident to move forward with preparing your book manuscript for publication.


At Brisbane Self Publishing Service, we think it’s a shame that many aspiring authors’ manuscripts never get to ‘see the light of day’. That’s the reason why we’ve  developed our proprietary Let’s Get Published Framework®. This 5-step system offers a practical, user-friendly approach to self-publishing a book. And to help to kick-start this process for you, we’ve bundled up this information in an easy-to-understand format in our LET’S GET PUBLISHED Workshop.

During our 90-minute workshop, you’ll learn about all the stages involved in transform your manuscript into a printed book and/or ebook via our proprietary Let’s Get Published Framework®.

Whether you’ve already completed your manuscript or have only written a few chapters (or even if you are still in the early planning stages of your book!), the LET’S GET PUBLISHED Workshop is an ideal way to learn how to take that all-important first step on your self-publishing journey.

Spotlight on … BOOK COVER DESIGN Webinar

People definitely do judge a book by its cover. The cover of your book is the most powerful marketing tool for grabbing your readers’ attention and enticing them to want to buy it.

One key advantage of self-publishing for authors is that you get to have the final say on the ‘look and feel’ for your book’s cover. However, to achieve the best outcome, it’s important to have an initial understanding of the design process so you can brief your book cover designer and offer productive feedback.

During our Spotlight on … BOOK COVER DESIGN online workshop workshop, you’ll learn about various design principles and processes involved in creating a high-quality book cover. We’ll also be reviewing five case studies so you’ll have an opportunity to ‘peek under the hood’ and observe the step-by-step cover design process, from initial client brief through to the final published book.

Whether you’ve keen to DIY your own book cover or you plan to engage the services of a professional book designer, the Spotlight on … BOOK COVER DESIGN  online workshop is an ideal way to gain some insight so you can make an informed decision on this crucial publishing step.

I knew nothing about self publishing prior to attending the LET’S GET PUBLISHED workshop. It definitely answered all of my questions about the book publishing process.
