Stephen Ormsby is the man of the moment. His new publishing company “Satalyte Publishing” is set to become one of the most prestigious and powerful publishing houses in Australia. What’s their goal? To promote the best work Australian writers can offer.
“The Boomerang Team” comprises of some of the greatest authors in Australia. I wanted to catch Stephen for a short interview.. How does a modern publisher compete with the big guns? Let’s find out…
Q) Good afternoon, Stephen. It’s an honour to meet you.
Q) Why a publishing company at a time when book sales are apparently so low?
A) Firstly, I don’t believe that book sales are low. It is a wonderfully huge industry, and one that will not die soon. Secondly, I believe that Australian authors are under-represented in the global market. There are many talented authors in Australia, and my main goal is to get the world reading them.
Since we announced the birth of Satalyte, we have been inundated. The quality of these stories is not surprising but incredibly heartening. There are Australian authors that have been bypassed as they are not seen to have a profitable product. I think differently.
Q) What do you think is the main ingredient of a successful book?
