Leschenault Press Logo

Leschenault Press is an independent publisher based in Western Australia but representing authors from all over the world. We aim to publish great stories from great writers wherever they may be.

We also have our main imprint, The Book Reality Experience, a hybrid publishing assistance service that offers independent authors an easy way of seeing their books in print and distributed on a global scale.

Please Note: Leschenault Press and its associated companies refute the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the creation of: audio books, art work, text content within print or eBooks, or any other creative medium. We recognise the rights of authors, artists and narrators to have their work free from the threat of compromise, amendment or appropriation by AI engines.



We work with a dedicated team of consultants and contractors who together bring our authors the best possible experience of independent publishing.

Our Aim

Always Responsive

We always respond to author submissions. We understand how hard it is to write and submit your work and so we will always reply to your enquiries.


We offer traditional and ‘author-funded’ pathways to publishing. All our terms, conditions and prices are transparent. We only work with fixed price, fixed term contracts with no surprises for either you, or us.


Being a smaller, independent publisher, we can offer much quicker, more agile solutions to your publishing needs.

Some feedback from our authors

Wanting to go down the self-publishing road but having no clue where to start, I was pointed in the direction of Ian Andrew and Book Reality.
From our first chat on the phone to the publication of my book, I felt completely at ease with Ian, he was such a pleasure to work with.”

Pamela Lynch PhD

Author of How the Hell Did I get Here

Ian has been incredibly helpful, patient and supportive through the process. No question is too stupid – not even mine, and no level of indecision too frustrating for him, not even mine. Ian has a great sense of humour, which is important as you navigate the twists and turns of publishing. I unreservedly commend Ian Andrew and the Book Reality Experience to anyone looking for an independent publishing facilitator.

“Ian Andrew and his magnificent staff at Book Reality took my dream from manuscript to a finished book. I will forever be indebted to them.
Passion and professionalism runs through their veins.”

Murray Hall

Author of Walk a War in My Shoes

Working with Ian and the Book Reality team makes publishing enjoyable! They are warm, friendly, professional, human and clearly passionate about what they do. I hope to continue working with them in the future because this is how publishing should be! 🙂
