Publishing Services

Our Point of Difference 

At DIY Publishing Ltd we think your point of difference is that we take a holistic approach to publishing  and try to inform our customers so they can make informed choices about their book project. 

Our Core Values 

  •   Our core values are transparency and full disclosure with clients.
  •   We offer clear quotes which are generally fixed, clients can chose which services they want/can afford now, and return to us later for more services as required.
  • We’re not just a website – we have offices in  central Wellington – we are bound by New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act 
  • Alternatively we are also familiar with working remotely, and have clients from from France to Australia as well as in New Zealand — we are familiar with time zones and can work remotely with you!
  •   We are neither a print shop nor a traditional ‘publisher’. Instead we are a business embracing the new world of self-publishing from eBooks to local print books to international print-on-demand.

Our Expertise    

We are professionals with many years experience in:

  •   cover design
  •   book layout and typography
  •    eBook design and formatting
  •   design and production of marketing materials (e.g. business cards, flyers, bookmarks)
  •    design and implementation of a website to promote your books, and you.

 We offer a complete solution to writers. Using professional sub-contractors as required we can source editors, proof-readers, illustrators and voice talent for audio books.

 Writers retain full control of their book rights and Intellectual Property.

 Writers are free to sell books directly and/or via online websites (we can advise and setup accounts if required — in the customer’s name)
