    After the manuscript is formatted it must be reviewed by you and or an editor. You will be involved in the perusal of drafts submitted by us so that you can identify and correct any factual errors, typos and grammatical errors. Once your edits and any amendments and additions are finalised the book will be prepared by us for professional printing and or digital dissemination.

    A cover design will be produced for your approval. Its aim will be to attract the attention of your potential and interested audience and to inform them about your book's contents.

    Depending on your requirements we will advise you on the best printing method – be that in a limited, short run or in larger more economical numbers if your intention is to sell them.

We know how much work you've put into writing your book – the long hours of research, writing, editing and refining your masterpiece. If you are nearing the end of this process you will need to take steps towards having your book designed, formatted, printed and or converted into an ebook by an expert publications designer. This will ensure that your book is accurate, highly readable and attracts the attention of those who will find its contents of interest to them. Unless you have already established who your readers are, you may need additional assistance to locate your audience. You may appreciate our experienced advice about publicising and promoting your book.

Why engage us?

You could engage a design company with a dozen staff all clamoring for your attention and encouraging you to pay up front for a package, elements of which you may not need or want. Our output is not prodigious, preferring to not churn books out as some do but instead concentrate on projects at hand, giving each our full and considered attention.

You won't find a brash team at Graham Abraham Publication and Graphic Design, just a very personable approach in a setting with plenty of space, peace and quiet in which to establish what it is you really need. Our team does exist but not in-house.
They are however the very best of available professionals carefully chosen for their in-depth knowledge of subjects with relevance to your particular field of interest. And we are the very best you will find to design, produce and market your books.

Our expertise covers not just visual design but the use of words as well. Graham is himself a skilled writer and has a gift for verbal expression and an eye for textual detail.

Once we have had your book printed you may have the
need to investigate the many available options for marketing your precious work.

Many but not all self publishers have a need to promote and sell their books. If you are one of those whose intention it
is to sell and promote your works to as a wide an audience as possible, then it is imperative that you consider from the options available to you, and to make
a choice about which ones best suit
your needs.

    Marketing is something of an open-ended process and can involve a wide variety of approaches. Combinations of
    such initiatives may be used to promote a particular book or
    set of books.

    As a self publisher your input and commitment will be key to your success. If you have the drive to succeed you will enjoy the satisfaction of promoting your own work. You might consider possibilities such as having a
    book launch or launches, commit to book signings, submit your work to book fairs in Australia
    and overseas, and so on.

    In order to boost online awareness you might give consideration to having us design and manage a dedicated Author Website with a shopping cart to offer both physical books and downloadable ebooks. We can also set up social media for you and once designed hand over administration in order to assist you to build a following.

Whether you are a novice self publisher or not, we endeavour to build a close working relationship with you the author, in order to fully understand your aims and needs. From the outset, and before any work begins, our goal is to grasp the essence of your work – to gain a clear understanding of you as a person, and as an author so that we can produce inspired design work and if required, targeted marketing.
