About Us

We are a small but dynamic, forward-thinking, New Zealand-owned company which is based on the North Shore in Auckland.  We are a niche publishing company that focuses on writing and producing specialised business books.  Most of our clients are individual business consultants who require short printing runs (less than 500 copies) from our range of white-labelled products.  Some of our other projects are large runs (10,000 copies or more) for national companies and franchised businesses.

One of our main points of difference is the fact that we can turnaround jobs very quickly.  When a client has decided they would like to become an author, we make that a reality in less than seven days from the date that they give us the few details we need from them e.g. photo; cover choice; colour choice.  Most people take one to two years to become an author.  We elevate them to author status in seven days!

We operate New Zealand-wide.  If we have to hop on a plane to see you, we will do that.  Our sales team are often “on tour”, seeing clients, running seminars and other events and celebrating book launches with our happy clients.

One of the best things we have is an awesome team that is loaded with talent and a can-do attitude:
