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?
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. Or learning your designer is in Mexico.
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 a range of services like the overseas providers?
No, we don’t. We do everything that is critical to the success of your book – all the hard stuff – 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, 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. 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)!
