Interactive Publications Pty Ltd has been in business since 1994 and has been growing rapidly since then. We currently publish 35+ titles per year. We are the second largest publisher of literary titles in Queensland. We also use our expertise to assist corporate clients who want to publish material in print and/or digital form.
Under its Publisher Dr David Reiter, internationally known for his own poetry, fiction and multimedia, IP is at the forefront of the emerging digital technologies in Australia. A “lean and mean” enterprise, IP succeeds where other small publishers have failed — in the key areas of audience development, promotion and distribution. It also champions innovation in its professional and contractual relationships with authors and its dedication to new forms of collaborative creative work.
IP publishes under four award-winning imprints: Interactive Press, Glass House Books, IP Digital and IP Kidz. The synergy between these imprints allows for digital versions to be created from print masters and vice-versa. Recently, IP set up our Digital Publishing Centre to focus on cross-channel projects and keep us at the forefront of digital innovation in Australia.
IP a “multi-channel” publisher, releasing titles in conventional print, print-on-demand (POD) and various eBook and multimedia formats as appropriate. We are confident that the printed book still has a future, so we will continue to publish quality books by the most efficient methods possible, without sacrificing the aesthetics of design and due regard for high editorial standards. But we are also excited by the new technologies, and the opportunities they offer for extending the audiences for literary work. Digital publishing makes it possible to trial work that “mainstream” publishers reject as non-commercial. But more importantly, it offers artists new media and new forms of expression.
Our partnerships with global companies like Apple, Amazon, Goggle, Kobo, Overdrive, eBooks Corp and Wheelers gives us greater access to global markets for our titles.
The new technologies make it easier for our editors and authors to work closely on refining projects — even from a distance. Much of what we do happens in a digital environment, saving trees by reducing our dependency on “hard copy”.
