At Busybird Publishing we facilitate great writing practice for writers through workshops, mentoring, and writing retreats. We also hold your hand through the publishing journey to share your story (no matter what genre) with the world.

Our imprint, Pinion Press, publishes a handful of our own titles yearly. Pinion Press’s books usually have an altruistic outcome, where a portion of proceeds will go to a charity, cause or foundation. Proceeds of our books have gone to cancer foundations, the CMTA Association, the Epilepsy Foundation, and the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

Our main body, Busybird Publishing, provides a self-publishing arm, a form of publishing that is growing increasingly valid and more and more accessible with each passing day.

The publishing game can be confusing, but with the right help, it can be simple, easy, and fun. That’s why Busybird Publishing offers fee-for-service self-publishing. Busybird Publishing has helped over 300 authors self-publish and have a rewarding, educational, and pleasurable journey in the process. What’s more, Busybird’s authors come out of the experience with a book they’re proud of.

"I have no hesitations in recommending Busybird Publishing to anyone who is intending to write their first self-published book."

- Laurence Sergovich, The Undercover Mission

At Busybird Publishing we aim to educate and inspire writers to share their story (no matter what form or genre) with the world. You can start by checking out our blogs and newsletters for great resources, or attend a workshop to get a better understanding of what you need, how publishing works, and what your next steps might be.

"Thank you to the team at Busybird Publishing for all your professional and friendly help in publishing my first book Beyond The Schoolyard. "

- Debbie Rossi, Beyond the Schoolyard

You may already have all of that knowledge and just want to get started. Our staff are happy to chat with you about your project. Call us on (03 9434 6365) to talk to Blaise, our director of publishing, to see how we can help. Otherwise take a look at our Packages. Keep in mind that these Packages are fully customisable, and serve as a starting point to work out what self-publishing services you may need.

Authors who choose to self-publish with us retain 100% publishing rights and royalties, while also having complete control of the creative process, whether they’re looking to publish in print or as an ebook. The book(s) can be printed anywhere in the world and take advantage of global distribution using print on demand (POD).
