6. Aurora House
Aurora House is a POD (Print on Demand) and eBook publisher based in Rosemeadow, New South Wales. Their aim of supporting authors gain an international audience is, most likely, the reason why their range of services is rather diverse.
Although they mainly provide publishing services, including eBook conversion, cover design, global distribution, author websites, book promotion, and more, this doesn’t mean you have to work with Aurora House through each step of the process in order to have your book marketed by them – the writer’s interests are the most important, so you can feel free to opt for book promotion services without picking a publishing package as well.
They have three marketing plans available – Basic ($660 + 10% GST), Intermediate ($980 + 10% GST), and Premium ($1300 + 10% GST). The first one, for instance, involves a submission of your work to Readers’ Favorite for a review opportunity, a press release sent to their list of magazines and newspapers, advertisement on several free and paid websites, and a few others. Continued promotion can be purchased for $550 + 10% GST as well, but only after one of the previously mentioned plans was purchased.
