Hi and Welcome to DIY Publishing!

DIY Publishing - welcomeHi and thanks for stopping by!

We’re aren’t quite ready yet  but what website ever is? Lis and Kris are just too excited to not talk about our little baby DIYPublishing  so it seemed we needed to get this website alive.

Our aim is to inform and assist writers who want to get their book to their readers.

We are NOT a publisher — you the writer are the publisher

But we can help. We plan to offer a number of short-courses around the key learning outcomes in the self-publishing area all for writers and authors who have a (final, edited) manuscript and don’t know what to do next. We see it at a self-publishing road-map which involves subject areas including:

  • what happened to the publishing industry?
  • what is a quality book  and what format is appropriate
  • transition from writer to writerpreneur  basically the stuff you need to know about running your own business
  • marketing including defining your market, finding your market, and marketing via both offline and online techniques.

Initially we will probably do online video  we have a platform identified, but we may branch out to doing on-site courses as well. (We’re based in central Wellington).  It’s all very exciting  stay tuned! The best way to do that is to sign up for the  newsletter!

    Have looked at ‘printing costs’ and , of course this page. Quite surprised, because the initial cost to print my last book ran $30 + dollars nz. That is certainly food for thought.
    regards, Geoffrey

      Hi Geoffrey,

      Yes the more I check prices locally the more shocked I am to be honest!
