At the Creative Hub, we can take your raw manuscript and help you turn it into a professionally edited, designed and published book. We work with some of New Zealand's most experienced and respected editors, proof-readers, designers, printers, and specialist book publicists.
We will edit your manuscript; lay out and check the proofs; design the cover and blurb; provide you with an ISBN number; arrange for the printing of your book. We don't handle distribution, sales and marketing, but can put you in touch with specialist book distributors and publicists.
Book publication is a series of complex steps. For maximum impact and a quality product, each step must be completed professionally with the input of specialists in their field. Our team has decades of experience working at the highest levels in the New Zealand publishing industry, and with all the major publication houses.
Finlay Macdonald will liaise with you closely at every step on the publication journey. Finlay was editor of the NZ Listener for many years, and then worked as NZ editor at Harper Collins and commissioning editor at Penguin Books.
