For over a period of time of development through to publishing of my book I can sing but where is my voice? I have had the most wonderful experience of attention to detail AND getting the job done right. Being a new author I was on shakey ground – should not have worried as there was the team for support and getting the job done. I cannot thank Love of Books enough and can highly recommend to other searching authors. Feel the first time fear and do it anyway.You will reap the benefits. A true professional business with a publishing team that not only really knows their stuff, but have a real care factor.
THANK YOU LOVE OF BOOKS’

Canon Jim Glennon

‘I was very pleased to find Love of Books when I was looking for a way to self publish my book Healing is a Way of Life. Love of Books, having the advantage of being based in Australia, made self-publishing a real option for me. As I went through the process, the Love of Books team were extremely helpful – patiently answering my questions, either by email or phone. She made the whole book publishing process an interesting and rewarding experience. I feel that I have gained a friend, not just a business contact, and can thoroughly recommend Love of Books, especially for Australian authors. Zillah Williams

John R. Small

‘I recently had my book – ‘My Budget Mate’ – published through Love of Books. Although my daughter did the formatting and other computer work for the book, she did so under Shays guidance. Also, we had our own artist who provided many ‘cartoony’ drawings for the book and again, with the teams assistance, these were provided to her in the quality necessary for printing. THE Love of Books team were always accommodating of our requests and nothing was a bother or inconvenience to her. We are very pleased with the outstanding service provided by her team.

As far as the physical production of ‘My Budget Mate’ was concerned, it came with some challenges to the team. The book is a ‘hands on’ workbook, showing not only how to create a budget but also, more importantly, how to operate a budget. Being a workbook of 368 pages where entries can be made in the book, it was imperative that the book opened out flat no matter what page was being worked on. Shay went to great lengths to find a printer who could do this at an affordable price. The end result is fantastic – thank you Love of Books team.

If you are looking to self-publish your work, you will find it difficult to go past Love of Books for the professionalism and affordability offered by Shay and her team. I highly recommend Love of Books. John R Small <a href=”http://www.mybudgetmate.com.au”

Charli Winters

‘The team at Love of Books has been very supportive, courteous and professional. They have helped me publish my very first book called Unexpected Magic. If I had any concerns or queries along the way, they addressed them immediately. I like the fact they are happy to work with me not just during the process of editing, typesetting, formatting and marketing, but also after the book is print ready and is set up on the various selling channels. I told Julie the – the owner of Love of Books – that she’s a super woman. She’s always working, even late into the night at times to make sure clients are well taken care of as I discovered when sending out emails a few times early evening. Thanks Love of Books for helping me getting my book published!
All the best, Charli Winters’

Tony Hogben

‘After many decades in the Racing Game. I decided to collate all my notes and publish a book…..well, two and half years on, I came to the conclusion that publishers and their agents were just a bunch of miscreants…….then I found Love of Books……a brilliant, very professional business service that knows the publishing game backwards, and treats customers as being vital to the success of this business…. …..Authors, spoil yourselves, deal only with Love of Books…..and you will avoid the heartbreak, despair and financial loss that comes with searching for an agent/publisher.’ Tony Hogben. ‘Winners, Losers and Lowlifes’

Ken Butcher

‘Love of Books staff worked with me to publish a large and complex theological book of 718 Pages in Crown Quarto size. During this time I was most unwell, battling terminal cancer and palliative cancer treatments. I needed someone I could lean on and trust and who would see this project through, if necessary posthumously. Although there were difficult periods where I wondered whether I would live to see it completed, the project is now in its final stages and I am grateful for Melanie supporting me with all the final details in the crucial stages on completion to ensure everything is completely to my satisfaction’.’ Ken Butcher ‘The Church; What On Earth Is It?’

John Duffy

I want to thank Love of Books, and all the staff, for a wonderful experience in producing my book, the “Australian Bus and Coach Drivers’ Guide”. From initial contact to completion of dispatch, I have been impressed with Love of Books constant level of professionalism, care and support all round. They were sensitive to the personal loss in my family (at the time I first expressed interest in their business). They were able to offer me a fantastic range of services, and advise me on doing “little things” under my own volition (to increase the satisfaction of personally achieving various aspects of production). Julie was amazing in production of the product, and advice for marketing and future development of the book. The Dispatch department was brilliant, contacting me personally regarding distribution and related requirements. I found their attention to detail extremely beneficial, and their advice based on years of experience invaluable. After seeking a range of suppliers, they are the most economic for quality publishers I encountered. I cannot adequately express how impressed I was with the final product. They assisted my plans with self publishing into a reality, and I am grateful. I look forward to Love of Books continued support and services in the future, and recommend them to anyone seeking to self-publishing.

I have found working with Love of Books has been a great journey. Getting a book published through Love of Books was made easy and uncomplicated. All the fears I had were dissipated as I was walked through a step by step process along the way. Being unfamiliar with Formatting, files and programmes the team was very helpful in my accomplishment in having my book published. No Question was too dumb or hard. Thank you Love of Books.

Peter Boey

The question for every new writer is whether to self publish or try your luck through a traditional publishing house. If you believe in your dream and want to get your book published, Julie, Clare, Paul and the team at Love of Books will help your dream be realised. To hold your cherished life’s work as a professionally published book in your hands, confident to show friends and customers the culmination of all your hard work, is unsurpassed. Julie and Clare has endless patience as you work together, on a personal level, on all aspects of business to get the job done.

Regards, Peter. www.peterboey.com.

Janet Poole

“I am delighted with the quality of my completed book and the response to my cover has been amazing. My book has gone on to receive many rave reviews and several internationally recognised literary awards. Julie and her team have the utmost integrity and they helped me realize my dream of self publishing my own book. I was unwilling to hand over the rights to a publisher, yet I needed professional assistance in cover design, formatting and printing. Julie’s willingness to help is genuine; when you work with her you keep your rights, you get peace of mind and you sign off on the finished product. Love of Books self publishing success provides a much needed and trustworthy service for authors.” www.janetpoole.com

Matthew Mazzaferro

I recently used Love of Books for the first time and the standard of service and quality was fantastic. Considering my situation were I needed a quick turnaround in time for a charity function after a similar company let me down. The team at Love of Books were quick to help me pick the pieces and get the job complete. I highly recommended them and look forward to working with them in the future.

Emma Hill

Life is amazing. That is one thing I know for a fact. In 2001 I wrote a manuscript that changed my life – quite literally. It took me three months and once I was finished, I put it aside and continued to live my life. Eight years later, I picked my manuscript knowing that it was time to really bring it to life and self publish it. With the help of a very good friend, we read it over and edited it many times over until it was almost perfect. Then I got in contact with a printing and publishing company named ‘Love of Books’ in Brisbane. When I phoned, I was greeted by a cheerful woman, Julie, who was more helpful than anyone I had ever met in my life. I sent her my manuscript and with her help we turned it into my very first self published book. Julie helped me with all the requirements need to self publish my book. My formatting, my front cover design, my paper size and type, and everything else from behind the scenes that goes into getting a book created for retail sale. Her husband, John, also had a hand in organising the printing of my books and the delivery. After that she organised my web page, my press releases and then helped me with absolutely everything else that I asked her about. Three years later and Love of Books have helped me self publish print and another two books, which make up my Saga and the help I had received in the beginning turned in to much more… support and that it something that any up and coming author holds dear to their heart. http://www.thelinkedsaga.com/

Julian Ledlin

Thank-you Love of Books for guiding me through the unfamiliar territory to get me self published. The book publishing process was extremely smooth and I’m really pleased with how my new books have turned out and at such a good rate. I am very appreciative to the amount of time taken to field my many questions, the level of communication leaves other self publishers I have approached for dead. I found my emails would be replied to within minutes and felt a genuine care and dedication towards the book which I had poured my heart into over the last 12+ months. People’s initial comments when they see the finished book is “It’s just like a real book.” And it is. It sits confidently alongside any book produced by a massive publisher. The colour reproduction of the cover was spot on – there is no variation in the 100 copies I had printed. The matt finish on the cover is perfect and great quality. The Love of Books process was just too easy. Thank-you team at Love of Books- for helping me get the best possible result. You made it a pleasure to dive into the world of self-publishing and cut out the middle man once and for all.

Love of Books

So you have a love of books!

You may like reading books or like some, you may like writing books.

You love your work naturally. So lets look after it and keep it safe.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BACKING UP YOUR WORK:

Some of you may be thinking to yourselves, “but Word saves automatically, doesn’t it?” Others, “what’s a backup plan?” But there are some of you who know exactly what I’m talking about. The ones who’ve lost data. Word’s auto-save feature IS NOT FAIL PROOF. Memory sticks, computers and portable hard-drives all can defect.

So what does one do?

Back up in several places. One backup on a memory stick or even two. One on your computer and one on an on-line storage facility.  Some people don’t backup anything on their computer in-case it get’s stolen. You wouldn’t want your years of hard work in the hands of someone else would you?
 
I know people who have used on-line storage systems such as drop-box, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive. All have informed me that they have never lost any of their valuable work.

Why are on-line storage systems so good?

You can have a few gigs of space with them for free.
You can access your files from anywhere, on any device with cloud storage on any computer with internet.
 
Look-up Cloud storage options on the internet.  Find one that is just right for you. Stating off with Microsoft OneDrive is a good option if your new to on-line storage options. This one normally comes with your Microsoft Windows program.

Self Publishing and Marketing

Self Publishing and Marketing

Book Marketing ideas that work

1) Internet Press Release

An internet press release may not necessarily get you media attention, but it can often get you some good traffic. In addition, you can include a link in the press release so that people can click on
and head to your purchase page.

2) Book Reviews

An easy way to gain massive amounts of attention for your book is to get your book reviewed in the papers or a publication with a good following. Just make sure you target the right media and pitch your book to the right people.

3) Others’ Blogs

Commenting constructively on other blogs relevant to your book, or getting a guest post on a blog with good traffic will help you gain some cheap traffic to your book. Make sure you can link back to your book when you comment on other’s blogs. Do not overtly promote your book (it’s considered spam), but make constructive comments that add value.

4) Bookmarks

Bookmarks with a tagline and ordering information is a powerful promotional tool for you. You can leave some at the local café. Give it as a gift to people who may be interested in your book. And if a book store agrees to stock your book, ask them to give your bookmark as a gift to any customer who purchase any book from their store. This will get you lots of exposure to book readers!

5) Create a Youtube video

Videos are proven to get more buyers. You-tube has over 1 billion unique visitors each month who watch 6 billion hours of videos each month. It’s a channel you cannot ignore. At the minimum, get a video about your book uploaded…and make sure you have a link that points to where they can buy your book.

6) Start Blogging

Create your own blog website and start blogging about anything relevant to your book. Create short informative articles or short stories, depending on your genre of your book. Use your blog to gain a following and for people to get a taste of your writing. The more you blog, the more the search engines are going to pay attention to you and give you free traffic.

7) Twitter

There’s various book clubs and book enthusiast that are on Twitter. You just have to find them and get them to Tweet about your book. Thankfully we have found a couple of Tweeter who can Tweet about your book to over 100,000 book enthusiasts for an affordable price.

Books Not Selling?

Why are your books not selling?

Book Marketing and Promotion

If you are thinking of getting your manuscript published read this first.

One of the most heart-breaking things for an author is to invest months and possibly years into a book and have it published, but then it doesn’t sell.

Some of our authors get thousands of dollars paid in book royalties each year, and yet some have very little to shout about.

Learning from both successes and failures, this article will identify the core reasons a book doesn’t sell.

Book Marketing and Promotion Tips

Book published/not yet published

1) Book is poorly written

Goes without saying, a poorly written book without good structure and proper proofreading will have little chance of succeeding in the marketplace. The solution? Plan your book structure out before you write it and make sure you get your book proofread by professionals.

2) Cover Doesn’t Grab Attention

That’s why you should invest a in a simple eye catching cover design. It is one of the key factors in attracting potential readers to your book. You generally have about 8 seconds to grab the attention of your prospective readers. Make sure your cover looks great.

3) The Price Ain’t Right

This is especially important with eBooks. If you price your book too high, no one is going to give your book a second look. At the same time, some of our authors have highly priced books in certain niche markets yet do very well. So as a general rule of thumb, the wider your book audience, the cheaper it has to be. The more niched and targeted your book is, the higher you can price it.

The best thing to do? Spend a few minutes on Amazon.com and have a look at other bestselling books in your genre that you’re competing with…what are their pricing their books at?Then price your book accordingly.

4) Your Blurb

Your book blurb, or the short description about your book is one of the key things to convert interested prospects into buying readers. Give as much as possible about your book, and leave them hanging for more. If you have a non-fiction book, make sure you can communicate the benefits of reading your book. For example: overcome snoring, have better relationship with your children, make a million dollars in 7 years in stocks etc.

5) No Personal Marketing Effort

Sadly, most authors think that once the book is published, their work is done. Successful authors know that is just the beginning of it. They get on radio shows, write articles for their local rag, write guest blog posts, speak at local associations, and develop relationships with bookstores…. the list goes on.

The point is that authors who treat their book as a business have an infinitely higher possibility of success. It is a rarity that any author had solely depended on their publisher to achieve the success they had. Household names today like John Grisham, JK Rowling and Robert Kiyosaki all had to work hard to promote their books initially. If you want to be a successful
author, you’ll need the same commitment.

6) Title

It goes without saying that your title and subtitle on the cover is just as important.

Hope this helps

Best Regards,

Ian Lewis

What Book Binding Type

What Book Binding Type is Right For My Book?

5 Tiрѕ On Choosing Thе Right Book Printing Sеrviсеѕ

Gеtting аnу book printed iѕ no easy mаttеr. Whеthеr уоu are a writеr having уоur first novel printed оr уоu аrе in charge of уоur соmраnу’ѕ nеw соffее table bооk, getting thе right bооk рrinting services iѕ of utmost imроrtаnсе. It is оftеn thе technical аѕресt of it that уоu ѕhоuld put muсh соnѕidеrаtiоn оn, but thеrе аrе also сеrtаin fасtоrѕ thаt you nееd tо dеtеrminе whеn gеtting a рrinting рrоjесt likе this dоnе рrореrlу.

Here аrе 5 tiрѕ thаt саn hеlр you in сhооѕing thе bеѕt printer fоr уоur book.

  1. Consider thе рrinting rаtеѕ and your budget.

You ѕhоuld аѕk for bооk рrinting ԛuоtеѕ once you determine the size, colour, page count and book bind type whеn уоu соntасt a printer. Thiѕ will give уоu thе idеа if уоu have еnоugh budgеt for thеir services. But how wоuld уоu knоw if thе рriсе iѕ right? Onе thing thаt уоu саn dо is tо аѕk more thаn оnе bооk рrintеr. Chаnсеѕ аrе thеу will hаvе diffеrеnt bооk рrinting quоtеѕ tо оffеr уоu.

If you were to choose a wire bound or spiral bind type of binding then beware. Many book stores like them. Spiral bound binding is good for some types of books. Perhaps training manuals or in office use.  Choose a good quality wire or spiral. Some spiral bound books peel back at the ends and this is not a good look. Make sure the ends of the spiral are closed together. Again, you only get what you pay for.

Is the price thе determining factor in your selection? Thаt ѕhоuld not bе the саѕе. Juѕt bесаuѕе оnе рrintеr’ѕ рriсе iѕ highеr thаn the оthеr, it dоеѕ not mеаn he iѕ рrоviding thе bеttеr ԛuаlitу рrinting service. There are mаnу fасtоrѕ in bооk printing services thаt help fix the рriсе аnd you should lооk dеереr intо it. Just like anything you purchase. Cheap book printing is not something I myself would like to invest my dollars in. Apples versus apples.

  1. Aѕk for information about thеir printing еԛuiрmеnt.

Thе quality оf your bооk will dереnd highly оn thе рrinting еԛuiрmеnt uѕеd. It iѕ nоt thаt thе nеwеr еԛuiрmеnt will bе bеttеr thаn thе older one, but it iѕ thе condition оf thе printer that rеаllу mаttеrѕ. If thе рrintеr iѕ nоt wеll maintained, then there might be a сhаnсе уоur bооk рrinting might gеt dеlауеd.

Of соurѕе, if you аrе intending tо uѕе digitаl printing technology, thе lаtеѕt models wоuld оftеn bе bеttеr. It will hаvе a gооd combination оf speed and quаlitу рrinting.

  1. Hоw hеlрful is the рrintеr with your inquiries?

A gооd рrinting соmраnу may not have the time or be аblе tо hеlр уоu еvеrу step оf thе рrinting process. A good рrintеr can рrоvidе you with suggestions оn уоur рrinting rеԛuirеmеntѕ ѕhоuld they find thаt your preference iѕ not that gооd.  A publishing consultant acts as a go between. The publishing consultant is assigned to work with the whole process right up to and including the printing stage. Aftеr all thеу аrе supposed tо be thе experts аnd thеrеfоrе thеу will knоw what are the bеѕt mаtеriаlѕ fоr уоur bооk. Beware of the printer who is juѕt trying tо ѕеll уоu more services оr trying tо raise the rаtеѕ or mауbе thеу are rеаllу соnсеrnеd with thе ԛuаlitу оf your bооk.

  1. Hоw long hаvе thе book printers bееn in thе рrinting buѕinеѕѕ?

Find a publishing consultant who has been working with printers whо has bееn providing bооk рrinting ѕеrviсеѕ fоr mаnу уеаrѕ. Thе experience iѕ a grеаt fасtоr in dеtеrmining the ԛuаlitу оf thе рrinting service that thеу can рrоvidе уоu. After аll, thеу will not bе in business for so lоng if thеу аrе nоt соnѕiѕtеnt with thеir output.

  1. Gоing with a рrintеr or publisher that hаѕ good rерutаtiоn.

In thiѕ аgе оf еvеrу infоrmаtiоn саn be found online, it iѕ оftеn vеrу easy to сhесk thе rерutаtiоn оf аnу business. There will сеrtаinlу be rеviеwѕ published оnlinе оr in рrint. Chесk if thе рrintеr or publisher оf your сhоiсе hаѕ a grеаt rерutаtiоn. Althоugh аѕ thеу say, nоbоdу can bе реrfесt, if thеrе are any bаd reviews trу to аlѕо check if thе сlаimѕ аrе actually rеаl. In this day and age it is a common practice for people to write online bad reviews about others in order to cause harm or hurt their business to entice sales to themselves.

I know myself from many years of experience in the industry, just like in any business you will never, ever please every single sole. People are people and we are all different.  I always aim for 100% but am content that I can comfortably say that through my own doing I have accomplished over 90% on the satisfactory scale with customers.

Consider- Hard Cover Book Printing?

Things Yоu Should Consider Abоut Hardcover Bооk Printing

Arе уоu thinking аbоut рubliѕhing a bооk оf уоur own? If yes, you hаvе tо first writе thе bооk.

Onе of thе grеаt things about thе hardcover bооk printing is that уоu hаvе a lоt оf opportunity tо rеvеаl уоur tаѕtе in thе рrinting оf the bооk.

Onlу thеn, уоu will bе able tо apply thе technicalities to thе bеѕt of thеir еffесtѕ.

The firѕt ѕtер hеrе wоuld bе to understand thе bаѕiсѕ оf рrinting itself. Yоu muѕt rеаlizе thаt рrinting iѕ nоt a mеrе wау оf putting ink on the paper. Rather, printing invоlvеѕ a number of diffеrеnt аѕресtѕ thаt are vital fоr thе proper appearance оf thе book. Thеrеfоrе, уоu ѕhоuld bе ѕеriоuѕ аbоut it аnd make sure thаt уоu are аррrоасhing аll the areas ѕinсеrеlу.

Julia Gillard and Love of Books

Published on Feb 6, 2013

“Us Karen” was written by Richard Dove and illustrated by the talented Karen artist, Tha Do, to tell the amazing story of the Karen people’s journey, as refugees, from Burma to Australia.

The book was published as a Wyndham Community and Education Centre project and was funded by the Wyndham City Council. “Us Karen” was launched at Wyndham City Council on the 22nd of February, 2012 before an audience of over 300 people.

The Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard, kindly supported this book launch by recording this speech from her office, in Canberra. The book has already sold 1,000 copies.

Julie McGregor also supported this book enormously by providing her own valuable time with the layout of the book along with the creation of the cover design setup ready for printing.  Julie McGregor often supports charities with her gift of valuable time and knowledge. Julie McGregor has spent over 8 years in the industry and has worked very hard to develop her business named Love of Books.
