Need assistance with the Australasian book industry? Whether you are a local or international publisher, everyone is stretched for resources and no one has enough time to do what they want to do.
Why not tackle that "TO DO" pile and explore some of the ideas you have, with someone you trust. You might need to review your existing ANZ supply chain, establish better new title workflows, set up digital communications to customers / suppliers / authors, manage your website and social media, analyse your existing marketing and service procedures, or launch and sell new and existing products. Or you may have a larger, strategic project in mind and need a helping hand. From new products to distribution advice, library to retail, email marketing to print and design services, I'm here to help.
There are few aspects of the publishing industry that Rachael McDiarmid hasn’t thought about in her career in books and publishing. I had the benefit of her insights as a colleague at Frankfurt Book Fair over a number of years, and trusted her to give me advice about our interest in finding meaningful direct contact with libraries and schools, an entirely new area for UWA Publishing. I would have followed up with additional small projects at the time had Rachael not moved into a new position in publishing. Back out in her own right again, I thoroughly recommend her for her insights and intelligent analysis. Rachael is trustworthy and smart, and thus a great asset to those of us working in the publishing trade.
