Local New Zealand-Based Support - Shawline Publishing


Following our successful establishment in Australia as a hybrid publisher, Shawline Publishing Group
is expanding to support Kiwi writers in sharing their stories in the global marketplace.


We do more than help you get your book to print but help you build a strong brand and platform to establish yourself as an author.

We publish fiction, non-fiction and children’s books under our PLAYTIME BOOKS  imprint.

You can explore our titles to gauge how your work aligns with what we publish and SUBMIT your manuscript for assessment.


Local New Zealand-based Support

We have a New Zealand-based General Manager, Tansy Boggon, who has first-hand experience in publication with Shawline Publishing Group as an author herself. She chose to publish with Shawline Publishing Group as she sees value in having a professional team behind her to release her book and launch her author career. 

Being based in New Zealand means that Tansy can support you in a way specific to the literature landscape and culture in Aotearoa while tapping into local opportunities for authors to promote and share their work, helping to establish you as a Kiwi author.

Highest Industry Standards

Shawline Publishing Group offers you the highest level of professional support as an independent author, from production, marketing and sales to national and international distribution networks.

Publication now requires more involvement and commitment from authors to support their success. A hybrid publishing model is founded on a partnership approach where we are together vested in your success.

Our six-step process to publishing and working with our authors is detailed on our Home Page which links to more information on our publication standards and processes.
