InHouse Publishing has a strong team of independent publishing experts who offer the most up-to-date and creative input to any author’s book publishing journey. The first question all potential authors ask is, ‘How can I publish my book?’ Traditional publishing is one option, and self-publishing is another – but it is now Assisted Independent Book Publishing where the industry is flourishing.

This independent publishing company, InHouse Publishing, offers it all. We offer the same processes as traditional publishing: manuscript appraisals, editing and proofreading, interior formatting, cover design, book production, and marketing. So you can be confident that InHouse Publishing offers the most simplified, secure, and supported service in book publishing you could ever need – all under the one roof.

Now with a fully operational distribution department and online bookstore, we have created a strong network with Australian wholesalers, libraries, and bookshops to ensure that our authors’ books have the best chance of success. InHouse Publishing also offers strategic and proven methods for the marketing and promotion of your published book. We assist you in setting up a promotional platform and provide the correct tools for you and your book so that you can shout from the rooftops, ‘My book is here!’

Our eBook development and distribution package, ability to list your book through Amazon’s print-on-demand network to meet international demand, exclusive Book Marketing Mentorship program, wholesale distribution, and drop-shipping services are just scratching the surface of further marketing and distribution opportunities we offer at InHouse Publishing.

Following managing director Ocean Reeve’s successful seminar tour of Melbourne and Sunshine Coast in 2015, at InHouse Publishing we have continued our mission to spread the word in 2016 and have already inspired hundreds throughout the Scenic Rim, Mount Isa, and Gold Coast localities. With other presentations happening in Cairns, Western Australia, Victoria, and Sunshine Coast, 2016 is proving to be a busy year. These seminars are a combination of creative thinking, practical education on the book publishing process, and an inspirational approach to the reasons why authors should write and publish.

InHouse Publishing fills the gap between traditional publishing and vanity/self-publishing. Assisted Independent Publishing is the way of the future, and it allows the author to still make final decisions, hold all rights to the work, and lead from the front.

Welcome to your independent book publishing community at InHouse Publishing.

After working for both traditional publishing houses, self-publishing and now Assisted Independent Publishing, InHouse Publishing Manager Ocean Reeve knows that nowadays authors need to promote their books in similar ways, no matter how those books are published. Unless your name is Stephen King or JK Rowling, the days of writing a book and letting the publisher or marketing company do the promotion for you are long gone; and even for them the landscape requires they are more involved in publicity.

Publisher marketing budgets have been slashed to the bone, and your readers want to interact with you, not with a PR agent. You need to get out and give talks, do book signings, and attend events. Have an active website and blog, maintain a public persona presence on social media, get pre-list information on who is buying and ensure we are targeting events to these retail sectors. We need to build you as a network so word of mouth does the hard yards for us. This all requires a publicity plan that needs to be developed.

Through our Book Marketing Mentorship Program, many of our authors have successfully launched their publication, sold hundreds through our pre-sales strategy, fully returned their investment, and achieved goals they never thought feasible. Some have sold the standard print run of 500 copies within a matter of weeks, reprinted to meet demand and are well on their way to establishing healthy profit, thousands of book sales and their book publishing legacy.

All marketing is calculated and this mentorship has hit the mark. The Book Marketing Mentoring program is a four session process. Each session goes for 60-90 minutes and can be held over Skype or in person at our Queensland offices.
