A MiniBook for your business
Longueville Media has been publishing business books since we began in 2002, so we know what makes a good book tick.
For many people, the idea of writing a 150, 200, or even a 300-page book is a daunting task – they would be right. It’s not for everyone.
Given the pressures and deadlines of day-to-day work, we have created the MiniBook: 40-50 page books that explain to potential clients what you do, in one easy-to-read volume.
Your MiniBook doesn’t have to cover your whole business. It might look at a new product you are launching or one element of your broader business. It’s completely up to you.
Why a MiniBook?
Your ideas out fast – as a book
Showcase your expertise
Attract new business opportunities sooner
Give away or sell as a printed book and eBook

guidance on your key ideas, business goals and business audience
business notes and documents that describe what you do and how you do it
2-3 industry testimonials for the front of your MiniBook
a studio-quality photograph of you or your team
We compile and write the draft 7000-word manuscript for you to review.
We review, refine, edit and proofread the draft MiniBook to deliver a final document.
We design the book cover and internal pages, purchase an ISBN and register your MiniBook with the National Library of Australia so it is on the public record.
We print 200 paperback copies with a colour cover and black and white interior.
For those who want something a little more unique, or whose business environment demands an unusual format, we can customise your MiniBook to suit your requirements.
It may be that your business needs graphs and charts to display what you do, that you need full colour images of your work, or that you have 20 blue-ribbon clients for whom a leather-bound book in a slipcase, printed on sustainable Icelandic paper is the only option.
Anything is possible. With consultation and creativity we can fashion a unique product to suit your desires.
Here are a few of the additional options:
Interviews – If you would prefer to be interviewed to create the content for your book, that’s no problem.
Charts or diagrams – If you would like to include charts, diagrams or illustrations we can draw those.
Cost $75 per drawing
Alternative word count – If you have a lot to say about your work, then you might like a longer book. Tell us what you would like and we’ll create it based on your specific requirements.
