Self-publishing with Independent Ink
Self-publishing can be a complex and confusing process but the potential benefits can be far greater than traditional publishing.
When you use a traditional publisher you have access to an editor, editorial assistant, copy editor, designer, agent and publicist. However, unless your book is a best seller it will have a limited shelf life, which equals limited press time.
It is not uncommon for a publisher to ask you how you intend to sell your book. So why do you need a publisher at all, if you have the responsibility for promoting your book?
When you make the choice to self-publish, you remain in control. Independent Ink will guide you through the process, but all of the control remains with you, the author.
We offer a range of other services to help you complete your self-publishing journey, from your computer to a published book or eBook.
Not only will you have access to a wealth of experience in the publishing industry but also a team of editors and designers.
Self-publishing gives you increased control and royalties but with this comes increased responsibility to market your book. If you are in the early stages of writing your book, we recommend you start to think about promotion now. This will help to shine a light on your work and begin to build awareness about the value your book will bring to potential readers.
Whether you simply want to upload your eBook to Amazon or another online store, or find out what your options may be for physical distribution, talk to us about how we can help.

What Our Authors Say
I have worked with Post Pre-press for about 15 years, both in my capacity as in-house senior designer at Penguin Australia and as a freelance designer since 2006. Post Pre-press are exceptional and expert typesetters and always deliver beautiful typesetting, on time. They make informed and measured decisions when and if instructions are lacking, and offer serious expertise and problem solving. The Post Pre-press staff are seemingly unflappable; the calm in the storm that is often aligned with print deadlines and book-making. I cannot recommend them highly enough, as ones go-to typesetter of choice.
As the Business Manager in an Independent School it has been my role to organise the production of our bi-annual book of students writing and art work. Working with the staff at Post Pre-press gives me peace of mind knowing that the end result is always going to be a professional book that is well laid out and of a quality that staff and students can be proud of. The staff I have worked with have listened to our requirements, have shown great attention to detail and have worked in an efficient and timely manner. They were prompt to communicate with us and despite a short timeline always produce the required work on time. I have no hesitation in returning to work with Post Pre-press again and again.
