Professional advice and support for self publishing authors

At Brisbane Self Publishing Service we work in partnership with you – guiding you through all of the self-publishing stages involved in transforming your draft Word manuscript into a published book. Our proprietary 5-step Let’s Get Published Framework® clarifies all the publication stages – helping you to successfully launch your book out into the world.

Decide on your publication goals

Before embarking on your self-publishing journey, you need to make some important decisions about your end goals for publishing your book.

You can begin this process by asking yourself the following questions:

  • Do you want your manuscript published as a printed book, Print on Demand (POD), an ebook, an audiobook or in all formats?
  • If you are publishing a printed book, will it be a hardback or paperback book?
  • What is the overall word count of your manuscript: short (less than 35,000 words); medium (between 35,000 and 90,000 words); or long (more than 90,000 words)?
  • Will your book have a simple text interior layout or a combination of text and images? Full colour throughout or a colour cover and black and white interior pages?
  • Does your book require additional graphics/artwork to illustrate your story or explain your concepts?
  • What style of cover design (i.e. text-based only, photographic or original artwork/illustration) do you want for your book?

Before launching into all the steps involved in publishing your book, think carefully about your motivations. This process will help you to make informed decisions about the optimal format and print quantities for your published book. Of course, all of these factors have to be balanced against your budget. However, by educating yourself about different alternatives available, you will ensure that your final book is produced to the highest possible standard you can afford.
