Over the years, we’ve noticed considerable misinformation about self-publishing in New Zealand and its viability for independent authors. So we’ve published a book about it!
An alarming number of authors have come to us following negative experiences with overseas self-publishing companies. We’ve encountered authors who’ve paid large amounts of money for shipping, experienced long wait periods, paid far too much for the smallest corrections to their books, and those who’ve unwittingly signed away their rights completely.
