Self publishing service for Australian authors

We guide Aussie authors through the self publishing process

Our principal mission is to help Australian authors take advantage of modern technology to publish their books in print on demand and ebook formats and make them available to a worldwide audience.

Some authors are happy to work it out themselves, but we’re here to help those who’d prefer to focus on their writing and leave the ‘one-off’ stuff to someone else. We’ve been doing this for more than a decade now, so we’re getting a bit of a feel for what’s required! 😉

Scroll down to get an idea of how we might be able to help you bring your book to life.

IndieMosh publishing packages

Want to get your book out and selling quickly? Our packages have been designed for you. Choose from our:

Blue Combo Print and ebook package

If you wish to publish your book as both a print on demand book and ebook, then we can take your completed manuscript and format it for both, create covers for both and supply you with a printed proof for your approval prior to publishing your book.

Green for Go It Alone package

If you already have your own IngramSpark, Smashwords or KDP accounts but don’t have the software or skills to format your book, ebook or cover, we can do the work for you!

You can choose any one, several, or all of:

  • layout file for IngramSpark internals
  • layout file for Amazon KDP internals
  • cover design and file creation for IngramSpark paperback or hardback
  • cover design and/or file creation for Amazon KDP paperback
  • epub ebook file creation for IngramSpark or Smashwords
  • mobi/Kindle file creation for Amazon KDP
  • cover design and/or file creation for ebook

Coral ebook only package

If you wish to publish your book as an ebook, then we can take your completed manuscript and format it for Kindle, iPad and Android, create a cover for it and distribute it worldwide via Amazon and Smashwords.

Platinum Full Service package

If you don’t have time to choose an editor and a proofreader and work out how to do things, then you can just send us your manuscript and we can help you from go to whoa.

Our Platinum Full Service package is designed for those who prefer to keep everything in one spot, with one service provider. Based on our Blue Combo Print and Ebook package, it also covers a manuscript assessment, editing and proofreading so that you know that you’re delivering the best book possible.

Red Print Only package

Sometimes a book isn’t worth publishing as an ebook. For instance, you may have written a family history and included lots of photos, charts etc, and you know that it’s the sort of book which people will want as a print edition. Or you’ve created a book which has so much technical formatting that it’s just not going to translate well as an ebook. That’s okay – we can publish a print-only version of your book and leave out the ebook option.

Optional extras

If your book needs just that extra bit of marketing attention, purchase any of our optional extras to help it really stand out from the crowd.

Please feel free to decide on your Publishing Package first, and then contact us about adding any of these extras.

The good news is, you don’t have to be an IndieMosh author to purchase our cover design, postcard or online promo pack services. We are happy to help anyone who is self-publishing.
