Shop: Self-Publishing Sydney

Your self-published book is just ‘a whim away’! Welcome to the online shop for self-publishing Sydney 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 in general?

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

Anna was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Loved that she listened to what I wanted to do and then helped me to achieve it in such a short time. Thank you.

The students in my 3rd - 5th grade virtual Book Club LOVED Anna's book Get Off My Lawn! So, it was not surprise that they were over the moon about her visit to our final book club meeting. The students asked smart and probing questions and Anna was engaging and warm as they interviewed her. A few students even expressed interest in working with Anna on promoting her books in the future!

Pacific Preparatory (a virtual 1:1 school) hosted a book club specifically centered around "Get Off My Lawn!" for third, fourth, and fifth grades. We were delighted to receive signed books so quickly, even with international shipping (we're in the United States). Anna was communicative, professional, and engaging. The students, all in 3-5th grades, were absolutely enthralled by her expertise. It was evident that she spent time preparing for the event with special attention to detail. For example, she tasked the participants with an "older or younger" activity that challenged them to reflect upon the evidence that described the ages of each character. The students were so enthralled with the activity that they seemed to forget they were learning! We'd be delighted to welcome Anna back for another visit!

Fantastic advice, patiently explained the processes and answered my questions tailoring her advice to my needs. Also provided for follow up in the subsequent weeks.
