At Love of Books, we tailor an individual book publishing package to your needs and budget, but it does not stop there.
We offer assistance to budget-conscious self-publishers who want to optimise savings by doing a large aspect of the book formatting or cover design themselves.
We are the only Self Publishing Company in Australia that can offer a complete range of personal services from ghostwriting to manuscript appraisal, editing, typesetting, cover designs, eBooks, book printing for paperback as well as hardcover books which include Book marketing & distribution packages national and global.
The book printing and publishing services provided by Love of Books are of the highest quality with a fast turnaround to suit your timeline.
We are satisfied only if you are thoroughly satisfied with your completed book order.
Whether your manuscript is a novel, science fiction, fiction or nonfiction, textbook, children’s full-colour book, magazine or yearbook, we can help you.
Our book printing prices are very affordable. We can print in both forms of book printing, short-run digital book printing and large quantity digital book printing. Have you considered having your book transformed into a digital e-book? Ask us about this service! Offset book printing is a great option for the budget-minded as you always pay less per book printed in larger quantities.
Booklet printing is done for up to 60 pages printed. A booklet is saddle-stitched – meaning the book is bound by staples in the spine.
Our Print-on-Demand book service enables you to print only the number of books that you need. As a general guide, if you print 100 books or more, the price is cheaper per unit than if you print less than this amount.
Print on demand is usually done on a digital printer. For a printer to set up your file ready for printing it takes skill and time. The file is manually programmed into the digital machine, a process that can take several hours. This is why it costs more to print only a few books, as the setup cost is the same for a few books or max. books. Feel free to ask us more!
The term ‘print-ready file’ simply means that your book file has gone through the process of page layout and formatting. The manuscript has been edited, proofread, formatted and is ready for printing!

Have you noticed that books have an ISBN number? (International Standard Book Number). This number identifies an author’s work and is required by booksellers, wholesalers and distributors. Our publishing packages take care of all this for you. CiP stands for Catalogue-in-Publishing.
The ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is a 13-digit number that uniquely identifies books and book-like products published internationally. Each number identifies a unique edition of a publication, from one specific publisher, allowing for more efficient marketing of products by booksellers, libraries, universities, wholesalers and distributors.
An ISBN number and bar code is required to sell your book in stores. Each book title must have its own ISBN number. A copy of your printed book must also be deposited in State and National libraries relevant to your state or territory. The Australian ISBN Agency assigns ISBNs in Australia exclusively.
Thorpe-Bowker acquired the Australian ISBN Agency in 1997, primarily to ensure the continuance of a resource of Australian books and publishers (Australian Books in Print) that would remain as comprehensive as possible.
Cataloguing-in-Publication (CiP) is a free service with no legal obligation operated by the National Library of Australia to provide a catalogue record for a publication before it is published. The CiP entry includes information such as title, author, ISBN, Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) notation and subject headings. This information is put online, making it widely searchable via internet search engines or library databases which are also beneficial for the author.
Libraries and the book selling sector use this information to select and place advance orders for forthcoming publications. This procedure usually takes 10 working days depending on the number of applications awaiting processing.
A valid Australian Booklet Printing is required before proceeding with a CiP entry.
The Cataloguing in Publication (CiP) program covers new and revised editions of works published in Australia, relevant to a wide audience with substantial textual information content; likely to be acquired and made available by Australian libraries.
A BARCODE is an optical ISBN form of information on a scannable, visual surface, which shows data about the attached, specific object. A barcode scanner reads the information directly before transmitting it into a database where the ISBN is logged and tracked.
The BowkerLink system – now called Trove™ system – provides publishers with an automated tool to update or add to their listings in the ‘Bowker’s Global Books In Print’ database. Publishers may also view and update their publisher contact information.
Australian and New Zealand data appears in the Global Books in Print online and CD-Rom products. Your new book will be available TO ORDER for sale in thousands of bookstores world-wide. Data on Australian-published and New Zealand-published titles also appears in Australian Books in Print and New Zealand Books in Print, respectively.
You complete a simple form with your details and we do the rest!
What we include:
If you are looking at publishing printing children’s books, we have excellent prices on printing and we can also arrange an illustrator if needed. We have gained a lot of expertise over the years and we would love to share our success with you, irrespective of whether you are a professional author or just a beginner.
We have carefully selected professional editors and proofreaders who offer flawless services. How the editing process works… firstly, your editor will consult with you to ensure they understand editing specifics (eg. American or English spelling, the message/moral etc). On completion of chapters, the editor will email you in sections for you to approve. This same process works for book and website design.
Have your book professionally typeset by one of our designers/page layout experts!
It can be very time consuming to select an expert in this field to lay out your contents effectively as well as provide a true value for money and professional service. If you have ideas, it’s best to consult with your designer – because they don’t have to stick with a standard layout – they can design your ideas.
Marketing and distributing your book can be an expensive and timely experience for new authors. Many companies offer a range of services for you at a cost. Some of these expenses can be quite high and from our experience, have little if any results.
Love of Books is real self publishing success helping new authors to gain more of the profits from the sales of their books. We offer advice as well as handy book printing and marketing guides on this important subject to help you develop your own rewarding marketing experience, keeping more money in your pocket.
Need help summarizing what your book is about? We have writers and editors to help you fill the back cover with the summary text – your back cover blurb.
Many boutique book distributors will prefer a synopsis to accompany a copy of your book. They can then decide if they would like to stock your book in their store. Need help summarizing your book for distributors into a detailed format without giving the entire story away?
The synopsis can be an important part of your submission package. This is your sales pitch – so think of it as an umbrella for your book.
A sales presenter can attract distributors, sponsors, investors…. basically, this is a good way to visually market your book for electronic submission. A sales presenter usually includes the book synopsis, book specifications, about you as a self-publisher, target and competitive market. This is all combined into a document, aesthetically pleasing for readers. This might include 3D covers of your book, images, graphics and illustrations. Need help? We have designers and editors to prepare this for you – or simply provide support.
Why not have bookmarks for your readers? This can be an add-on sale or included in the purchase. The bookmark can be visually related to your book cover, include your website and/or contact details, and perhaps a quote from your book. If you need help designing a bookmark, we have the resources and staff to help you.
Need help advertising? At Love of Books, we can make posters, bookmarks, business cards, flyers and brochures – you name it, we can help! Posters are a great way to advertise your book, launch, signings and other events.
Want a business card for you as an author? We can design business cards for you – or simply help you design one.
