Why choose self-publishing?
You’ve spent time perfecting your manuscript, and now you’re eager to get your masterpiece in front of readers. Where do you begin? Your initial thought may be to pursue a traditional publishing route, but the process of finding and securing a literary agent, pitching your book to publishers, and waiting on results can be arduous. Many authors are instead pursuing self-publishing with companies like IndieMosh to increase their royalties and bring their works to market quicker without sacrificing quality or creative control. As a self-publishing company, we help authors bring their dreams to life.
Making a great book takes a great team. Ours supports you at every step:
Our passionate team and easy-to-use management system for your files ensure a smooth and transparent publishing journey.
Reputation and trust
We have published 1,000+ Australian books under the IndieMosh and Tellwell imprints since 2009 with an A+ rating from the BBB and over 350 5-star reviews on Google and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). In 2022 and 2023 we were shortlisted as a finalist for the BBB Torch Awards for Business Ethics two years consecutively.
We offer 85-100% net royalties and have the smartest distribution model in the industry. IndieMosh does not inflate distribution costs. You are taking the risk, so you should receive all the rewards.
IndieMosh is proud of our full-service team approach. We are a friendly team of experienced and talented editors, designers, illustrators, marketers, and project managers with exceptionally high standards of excellence.
Our up-front pricing means you know what services you are receiving, without hidden fees, or surprise costs along the way. Our customized packages are tailored to suit your book project and your budget.
Guidance and support
Our dedicated team will lead you through each step of the publishing process. We take author empowerment seriously and have extensive resources to support you along the way.
We offer competitive print-on-demand and bulk-printing options, but if you prefer to print elsewhere—no problem! We will provide you with the files you need. We never lock authors into contracts with high printing costs that force them to price their book too high.
We publish nonfiction, fiction, memoirs, childrens' books and more! For a detailed breakdown of our services we'll send you a free copy of our guide to self-publishing and provide a customized proposal based on your needs.
Standard Publishing Package
Our standard publishing package is a good start to getting your paperback book into major distribution channels. It includes a professionally formatted interior layout and a professionally designed front and back cover.
Of course, like all our options, this package also includes a designated Project Manager to support you step-by-step through the process. We’re here to support you every step of the way.
Our professional publishing package includes comprehensive distribution in paperback, hardcover and ebook formats. It offers the professional design and layout of your book in each format plus a book marketing consultation to help you strategize and build a custom marketing strategy (25-30 pages) for your book. It also comes with a book backgrounder (a two-page professionally designed book resume), an essential tool for your initial marketing efforts.
The all-inclusive publishing package takes your book to the next level by adding substantive editing and an author website. The substantive edit includes one round of content editing and one round of copy editing. The goal is to enhance the quality of your manuscript by first addressing its overall structure, and then correcting grammatical and other technical errors. On the marketing side, an author website helps you build an online presence, create a fanbase, and market your book.
Customised Publishing Proposal
We have several publishing ‘packages’ which combine the most commonly needed services. But the best option depends on your specific needs. That is why we recommend connecting with us directly regarding your specific project. We’ll send you a detailed guide and tailor a solution for you based on your goals, needs and budget. Every author is unique, which means every day is interesting for us. We’re excited you hear about your project!
SELF-PUBLISHING VS TRADITIONAL
Why more authors are choosing to self-publish:
- To bypass the exhausting and arduous effort in finding a literary agent and traditional book publisher
- To retain full creative control and the copyright
- To earn much higher royalties
- To bring their book to market quickly, in months rather than years
