Quick Menu: Editing | Illustrations and Covers | Book Design | Publishing | Marketing | Coaching

On this page you will find a list of all the children’s picture book publishing services offered by Old Mate Media. While we specialise in children’s books, we do in truth work on all kinds of books, magazines and comics. Just look at Old Mate Media's own books, which include game guides, cookbooks, novels, chapter books, activity guides, business promotional material and more.

Most of the authors that we work with are just getting started on their publishing journey. A big part of what we do is help authors understand the book publishing process. This way authors are better armed and prepared for future works, reducing costs and producing better producst. As such, we’ve structured our services in the order in which they are best completed during the book publishing process.

This way you can see where you are and what’s next.

This system also allows authors to only engage us in the services they need. Many authors already have some skills and therefore only need help with specific publishing services. Each quote we do is bespoke to your needs. And remember, we work with flat fees; there is no ongoing royalty fee.


If you simply do not know where to start, then just book a call. We love talking to new authors and helping them take their first steps into the exciting world of being a successful, self-published author. The call is free after all.
