Shop for Consulting

Your self-published book is just ‘a whim away’! Welcome to the online shop for consulting services by A Whim Away PTY LTD.

I will help you through the self-publishing process of your fiction novel, by supporting you through the requirements of the various self-publishing platforms out there.

What are the main stages of self-publishing?

There are six main stages in self-publishing a work of fiction, and each stage can be comprised of multiple steps. The stages are:

  1. Finish your manuscript
  2. Edit
  3. Format
  4. Cover
  5. Publish
  6. Promote

What technologies do you use?

In my writing and self-publishing work, I use the international self-publishing platforms of Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), Draft2Digital, Google Play Books, Ingram Spark. I upload ebooks and print on demand (POD) formats. I purchase my ISBNs from Thorpe-Bowker (Australia)

I am also familiar with the supporting tools of Upwork, Canva, Scrivener, Microsoft Office, MailChimp, Buffer, WordPress, Xero, Sendle.

I self-publish through A Whim Away PTY LTD, an Australian-based company. I know about the requirements relevant to self-publishing from Australia through international platforms, as applied to a company. Things you may want to consider include company structure, taxes and fees, and copyright.

You can find more information about self-publishing through my blog.
