Australia's most innovative independent publisher
IP is a global independent publisher of physical books, e-books and digital media under its imprints Interactive Press, Glass House Books, IP Kidz, and the Digital Publishing Centre. IP is a member of the Australian Publishers’ Association (APA), the Independent Book Publishers’ Association (IBPA) and the Small Press Network (SPN).
We’ve been in business since 1997. IP is a ‘green’ and socially conscious enterprise and our workflow in preparing work for publication is almost exclusively paperless.
IP offers royalty contracts for the very best submissions we receive, and also Assisted Services for promising titles that need further development. We are NOT a “vanity” publisher, i.e. publishing all submissions for a price.
We specialise in quality titles for adults and children, bringing the best to our readers here and overseas. We also provide consulting services to corporate and government clients as well as to select individuals seeking professional publishing support. We distribute in partnership with a host of global companies such as Apple, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Overdrive, Gazelle, Google, Proquest, and Wheelers.
