Member Advice

We offer guidance to our members

Our experienced team is able to offer individual and professional advice on any query you might have about the book industry in Australia: getting published, agents, copyright, royalties, rates of pay, rights reversion, marketing and promotion, and everything in between. No question goes unanswered.

Due to the volume and complexity of the enquiries we receive, we ask you to please submit your query using this online form and we will get back to you within 3-5 working days. If your query is urgent, please let us know and we will do our best to respond sooner.

This free service is only available to ASA members.
