Kris Lockett – Publishing Services

DIY Publishing Ltd

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)
