Our Team

Our team brings a mature and seasoned range of experience. Perhaps one of our strongest assets is our recognition that we are mostly servicing the 35 plus market and our team is mindful that digital marketing is quite different to the “baby boomer” more personal approach we were all raised with! Digital marketing now dominates the scene and “content” is king when it comes to effective marketing. We use our expertise of publishing 100 titles to hold your hand through the publishing process to ensure you don’t break the bank publishing your book and don’t get overwhelmed with #tags, blabs, vlogs, twitter and facebook! We talk YOUR language! now hold your hand through the publishing process to ensure you don’t break the bank publishing your book.
