Everyone has a story worth telling

At Rack & Rune Publishing we believe everyone has a story worth telling.  Yet for most people, traditional publishing seems beyond their reach, and ‘vanity’ or ‘partner publishers’ can lead to huge outlays and a garage full of unsold books.

But it doesn’t need to be that way. Print on demand or ‘POD’ publishing makes it more affordable than ever to get your book published and distributed to the same global network of online bookstores used by the big traditional publishers.

We set up Rack and Rune to assist you with navigating your way through this new digital publishing realm without it costing the Earth.

If you have a story you want to print as a book and get it out there, send us a message and we’ll work out a price to help you take your story to the world.

Who are we?

Rack and Rune founder, Graham Davidson is a professional creative with over 40 years’ experience.
After a successful career in advertising, he partnered with Emily S Smith in 2017 to establish the early childhood literacy initiative, Storytime Lane. The experience of publishing Storytime Lane’s books opened Graham’s eyes to just how easily books can be published in 21st century.
Inspired by this realisation he established the IF Maitland Indie Writers Festival, a festival focused on encouraging those who have a story they’d like to share with the world to tell their story. But while it’s easier than it’s ever been to get published today using Print on Demand (POD) technology, there are still some steps in the process that can be intimidating for those without experience in editing or the software required to prepare a book for printing.
This desire to help everyday people who want to get their story in print is shared by the team of professional editors and designers that have come together under Rack and Rune’s banner
