Formerly for many years Publishing Director of Penguin New Zealand, where his books won many awards, Geoff Walker has books in his blood! He is highly regarded throughout the New Zealand book world and knows the local publishing scene inside out.
Geoff will assess your initial manuscript and offer expert advice on writing, rewriting and editing, all of which he’ll undertake himself. He’s also available for non-fiction co-authoring or ‘ghost’ writing.
He’ll also advise on the best way for you to publish, including suggesting which publishers to approach. He has all the individual publishers’ phone numbers and email addresses!
If you want to self-publish, Geoff offers a consultancy service advising on the full range of options available, including e-books. He has helped many authors successfully self-publish. He may even project manage your book from the original manuscript through its editorial and design stages to finished printed copies.
If you need help promoting your book, he knows most of the book publicists in town.
Geoff’s personal interests lie in adult fiction, biography, memoir and history, but he also works with all kinds of books including speciality books, company histories and corporate profiles. Sorry, but his expertise doesn’t extend to fantasy fiction and young adult fiction.
