I could not be happier with the service provided by Green Hill Publishing. Bringing my 88 year old father's vision to life with the publication of his book called "Why Me". After struggling to find a legitimate publishing company to look after this for my dad, I found Greenhill online. I had many discussions initially and the support that Kaitlin provided initially, followed by Jessica was next level awesome. They both put my mind at rest that all would work out just fine. And it sure has. Thanks so much.

Had an amazing call with David on Tuesday!In the process of completing my first book and I’m looking to partner with someone that can publish my book and aren’t I glad I found Green Hill and David! We were on the phone for close to an hour, and that was due to me talking to much but David could tell I was nervous as I haven’t done this before and was so caring, patient and encouraging! I have received my proposal and will definitely be entrusting Greenhill with my project! As I am based in Sydney I feel compelled to fly to Adelaide and meet David in person to seal the deal! Can’t wait to meet you guys in person! What a first up experience!

I would like to express my gratitude for the support I have received from Green Hill. When I began the daunting process of discerning who to work with as a publisher, choosing Green Hill was a leap of faith. I'm glad I did. From my initial engagement with Kaitlan, to my exchanges with Jessica, followed by Lisa's editing, Debora's patience with typesetting and design, and my conversation with Rebekah, the process has surpassed my expectations. For me, the key is authentic relationships, and GH has engaged with me in this spirit, despite the inherent challenges of working online, and the tyranny of distance.

From the very first interaction I had with Green Hill, even prior to the commencement of the publishing process - they were incredibly personable and handled all questions with consideration and care. Their level of engagement was phenomenal, and they made me feel very valued, and very much apart of the overall experience. Their investment in the book and its success was palpable, and they continually impressed with their diligence and their efficiency - always communicating promptly and keeping me well informed. I cannot speak highly enough of their professionalism and their dedication to what they do, and I highly recommend their services. I will definitely engage with them again in future.

The team at Green Hill were fantastic and I'd highly recommend them to authors new to the publishing world. The design and build of the book was completely transparent, all costed (no surprises), with cover design, editing, type-setting, etc. However, the most important inclusion of all was their advice and patience. The team were always responsive, normally within the day - amazing. Sincere thanks to Kaitlan, Deb and the team.

I published my book Highway to Well through Green Hills publishing. They have been an absolute pleasure to deal with- responsive, professional and extremely helpful. I researched publishing companies for some time and I couldn’t have made a better choice, Green Hills publishing made the whole process seamless and easy. People have commented on the quality of my book, especially the artwork on the front cover. Every staff member is genuinely interested in your journey as an author, they are patient, courteous, supportive and very knowledgeable. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of publisher and I highly recommended Green Hills publishing.

Highly recommended. The team at Green Hill could not have made the process of self-publishing easier and more enjoyable. Incredibly good value too. I was very impressed with the quality of the typesetting and cover design. Gina had great attention to detail and made all the minor changes I asked for - which were very few because she did such a great job from the outset. It was a great feeling when the pilot copy of my book arrived in the post. Even better when it was online for sale.

Frequently Asked Questions

For answers to the most important book publishing project questions please provide your details and we will send a free copy of The Little Book of Big Publishing Tips.

Are you based overseas?

No, we are the Australian company.

We have a real office, a real design studio and a team of real book designers who work from the studio.

This is a question well asked because the last thing you need as an Australian author is to be trying to call Toronto at 12 noon Sydney time to discuss your book.

Many of the UK and North American companies do have a hole-in-the wall office in Sydney or Melbourne – but you won’t have any idea who your designer is. You’ll be speaking to an account manager/salesperson.

Do you help with marketing and sales?

Yes.

We are a full-service publisher and have capability in book distribution through retail outlets.

Online retail distribution is guaranteed but physical bookshop distribution depends on a wide variety of factors.

During the early stages of book production, we will assess its potential for traditional book shop distribution and provide strategic advice on how your book may achieve distribution through physical stores in Australia, New Zealand and internationally.

You don't seem to offer the range of services like overseas providers

No, we don’t.

We do everything that is critical to the success of your book, performing over 120 actions/tasks in making ready each title. There are simply too many of these to list.

But we don’t do the junk (and charge for it). This is because services like book stubs, book trailers, movie scripts, business cards and fake paid reviews are next to useless. Some of these can even have a negative impact not only on your hip pocket but on your reputation as an author. If you are enamored by the long lists of gimmicks offered by our UK, US and Canadian competitors (and you are prepared to pay their hefty price tag) then Green Hill is not the publishing option for you.

Having said that we can do anything if you ask for it.

We do offer professional digital marketing services, publicity, author websites, ebooks, audiobooks, illustration, book mentoring and distribution services.

And for the record, because we are committed to serving authors in any way, we can do book stubs and posters (if you really want)!

Do you take royalties from my sales?

No, Green Hill does not take royalties.

Unlike other publishing companies, Green Hill does not take a percentage of the sales made on your book. We are a fee-for-service business, so, once we receive the final payment for the production book, we transfer the control of the book distribution over to you and you can manage everything. By managing your own distribution, you cut out the middleman and reap more profit from each of your sales.

Who owns the rights to my book if I publish with Green Hill?

The answer to this is simple.

The author owns the rights to all of their own content right from the start.

Upon receipt of the final payment after the production process has been completed and your book is ready to be sent to the printers, Green Hill assigns the rights of the book design to you as well, but until this stage Green Hill owns the rights to the design. All of the written content and any images that our authors supply remains wholly theirs.

Are illustration and editing costs included in the publishing packages?

No, both illustration and editing are separate from the publishing package prices. Included in the packages is a complimentary editing assessment voucher and the brokering of illustration, but as Green Hill works with partnered editors and illustrators, each project is quoted individually by the partner and cannot be included in the packages.
