Who are we?

Publishing World SA is the fastest growing publisher in Africa and has been formed by published authors and book marketing executives to assist new writers, artists and photographers to publish their work all over the globe. We are not a self-publishing company. We are a traditional publishing house registered with PASA. The company offers A-Z services, from accepting manuscripts to publications. Then the service is extended to marketing and distributing the product through our unique selling structures locally and abroad as well as our own book stores.

Publishing World SA is part of the Media House Group of companies.


After approving the manuscript Publishing World SA may offer part of the publishing cost as an investment. The profits then are shared, after deduction for distribution, storage and other logistical costs.


Publishing World SA will appoint one of our very capable Project Managers to your work to ensure personal efficient service throughout the duration of contract. Our services include editing, ISBN and barcode registration (copywriting), designing and layout, printing, marketing, distribution, storage, orders, marketing material, marketing video/CD production, translation, illustrations and photography and book launches.  Books are marketed on the internet and on social networks (Facebook etc.) before the launch to ensure maximum exposure. Books may be considered for further projects such as filming by our affiliate companies.


Our editors do not set out to change the basic structure of your work. We concentrate on spelling, grammar, punctuation and the general flow of your work. We strive to only enhance your writing and making it more presentable to the target market. Everything is done with your approval. Our intention is not to rewrite your book, but only delivering a work in a presentable marketable form. We work as a team, until we are all satisfied with the product. After your book is typeset, it is delivered to you in the form of a proof for approval on the production draft before the first edition goes to print. Your book will be made available in the printed form first and then as an e-book, marketed and distributed globally.

Design and production

The physical appearance of your book will be determined by the subject matter and the spirit of your writing. This includes the style, size of type and the designs throughout the book. If you need any additional illustrations etc. that are not submitted with the manuscript, we can provide artists to cater for your specific needs. We will ensure that all illustrations are good quality and will reproduce properly. We will handle unusual production problems and complex manuscripts with extra professional care. The cover design must catch the buyer’s eye this is therefore a production priority. The binding and print quality is extremely important and we put great emphasis on the quality of the craftsmanship of printers.

Author’s Certificate

After completion of the publication process, an official author’s registration certificate is issued to form part of your author’s CV.

Marketing and distribution

Once the book has been printed, Publishing World SA presents your book to major book agencies with the prospect of future sales.

Books will be available at various distribution points where book agencies will place their orders and will also be marketed by our sister company BooksMusicArt, a dynamic national network of sales and branch agents and book stores to ensure national sales in addition to the normal channels to boost sales.


We await your manuscript for consideration. Just remember, a book never dies.

Hold the pen high and keep on writing!
