Our Self-Publishing Packages

Personal consultant

Your personal consultant will guide you through the publishing process and be on hand to discuss any matter that needs clarification. The consultant will work with you from the handover of your manuscript and will help create a design brief, prepare a schedule and ensure that your book is completed on time and to the highest publishing standards.

Custom cover design

The saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover is true but unfortunately most people do. We will ensure that your custom cover will stand out from the crowd. Your dedicated consultant will work with you and one of our designers to create a cover you can be proud of.

Internal page design

The reading experience should be effortless and enjoyable. The layout and typography of your book plays an important role in the achievement of this goal by having a custom page design. Our typesetters ensure suitable fonts are selected with appropriate heading hierarchy and that there are no distractions for the reader, such as widows or orphansugly word spaces and that the overall colour of each page is consistent.

Author corrections

We expect that the manuscript has been thoroughly checked before production begins but understand that there will always be minor corrections that have been overlooked in the checking process. To ensure that your book is of the highest standard, we include two rounds of reasonable author corrections for the cover and internal pages. Should your book require major corrections, such as insertion of additional text or re-working of design elements, additional charges may apply which we will quote for your approval before proceeding


Included is your own personal  ISBN and CiP for your printed book and eBook, we also arrange for a copy of your book to be sent to your home state library and to the National Library as per statutory requirements.


The content and layout of your book remains your property exclusively. Palmer Higgs assumes no proprietary rights over any part of your book. Digital copies of all files are available upon request and will be copied to CD for a fee of $50.


Once we have evaluated your manuscript we will prepare a budget for your consideration. As a guide our publishing packages start at $3,850 inclusive of GST
