Escarpment Publishing is AIA Publishing’s Australian self-publishing service imprint. This assisted self-publishing service is for authors whose books fall outside of the AIAP focus on fiction and narrative memoirs; for example, non-fiction and children’s books. It’s also for authors who want to self publish (and so avoid a selection process) and want to do it well, but don’t want to spend the time and money required to learn the necessary skills.
You can be sure that you’ll get personal care from a team with high standards of integrity.
Though Escarpment Publishing is an Australian self-publishing service, we publish books for authors all around the world. However, we particularly welcome submissions from authors residing in the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and Southern Highlands areas of NSW, Australia. (The name comes from the Illawarra escarpment – the photo of it above is taken from the Newland property, Diamond Light.)
Books will be required to meet basic standards of proficiency and must have socially responsible content. Authors arrange their own editing and proofreading, but, if requested, we can advise on what editing is needed and offer our editors if they have a free time slot. Authors arranging their own editing are required to have a professional editor contact us and assure us that the book has been, at the very least, copy edited and proofread.
Costs and process for our Australian self-publishing service are the same as for AIA Publishing as outlined on the AIAP Submissions page. Books published through Escarpment Publishing are not listed on this website or promoted by AIA Publishing.
We advise authors wanting to publish themselves to join the Alliance of Independent Authors for the most reliable advice and information on self-publishing.
