Burnet Media offers consultancy services to anyone interested in publishing a book, even if we don’t finance it or publish the finished product. This is particularly useful for authors or companies preferring to retain complete editorial and financial control of their projects and/or authors and companies with largely captive markets who would prefer a substantially increased royalty return. In the case of a riskier title that might not otherwise be published, there may also be the opportunity to use the Burnet Media infrastructure for sales and distribution.

Whether it’s a major commercial project for the trade, a private memoir for the family, an unlikely project that is close to the heart and deserves publication, a business-related title that enhances your personal CV, or a book that you will be able to sell on your own (to theatre-going or motivational-talk audiences, for example), we have a publishing solution for you.
