About Aurora House


To help authors become  successful as a published author and to publish with confidence.

Who We Are and What We Do

Aurora House is a POD and eBook publisher. We were founded through a love of books and help new and experienced authors spread their words by publishing their books. Our doors are open to all authors, allowing you to gain confidence in your work and go on to write more books.

Based in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia, we enjoy the challenge of taking your manuscript and turning it into a polished book, one that will give many hours of enjoyment to the reader.

With Aurora, What You See Is What You Get – NO hidden costs, NO ulterior motives, just good old book publishing. These policies are what govern Aurora House and our operating practices.

From the time your manuscript reaches us, it will be treated with integrity and respect, keeping you, the author, fully informed and involved in the processes of publication every step of the way.

We have a wide range of publishing options. Our options include cover design, ebook conversion, POD and eBook publishing, worldwide distribution, professional editing, author websites and, if you are new to the book world scene, marketing suggestions to help you along the way.

Our Print on Demand and eBook publishing is efficient and cost effective. It allows your book to be found worldwide in online bookstores as print or digital versions.

We’ve designed our book publishing to give you, as author, the best possible opportunity for your work to gain a worldwide audience, something before that was only a pipe-dream – Now publishing your book is a reality!
