Publisher info

MoshPit Publishing is a boutique ebook and book publishing facilitator located in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Our aim is to help people get their word out, generally via electronic means first, then if demand warrants it, in print. This is logical - why waste money on printing a book which doesn't sell - and environmental - why waste trees on a book which doesn't sell?

We also believe that there is no need to charge more than $10 for an ebook, and so every ebook available from MoshPit Publishing is priced at $9.99 or less.

We specialise in stories by Australians and New Zealanders for a local and worldwide audience.

Why 'MoshPit' Publishing? Because you just never know what you're going to find in The MoshPit!

  • Last Suppers: Famous Final Meals from Death Row on July 03, 2011

    Very enjoyable and unusual book. The authors have a great sense of humour coupled with a solid sense of justice. The meals are just a small part of this book - almost an excuse to talk about death row. What makes it really interesting is the additional information - such as differences in the laws between states, and gems such as the percentage of people on death row with the middle name of 'Lee'! No matter your opinion of the death penalty, this book is well written, interesting, entertaining, enlightening and good value - enjoy!
  • It's OK to Laugh on July 03, 2011
    (no rating)
    Quite entertaining self-published story. As someone who has not had to deal with domestic violence, it was interesting to read how this sort of thing can sneak in and take hold. We always say 'Why doesn't she leave him?' This book helps to illustrate one answer to that question. Nancy's honest look at herself and her life are refreshing and funny. She has no pretensions, no delusions of grandeur. She loves, she lives, she laughs and she makes an effort to live the best life she can. Enjoy!
  • Xenofreak Nation, Book One: XBestia on Jan. 27, 2012

    I found this book by accident after viewing Ms Conway's wonderfully entertaining video The Indie-Author's Lament, on YouTube. Xenofreak Nation is the best kind of scence fiction - it's based on society, psychology, human nature rather than on gadgets, weapons and outerspace. As such, it's premise is quite believable, which makes it easier to read. Dialogue, often a challenge, is believable, and the story moves at a pace which would keep anyone from getting bored. And the bonus? You know who will get with who, but Ms Conway doesn't waste your valuable reading time on detailing the budding romance - she knows there's a story to be told! All in all, thiz is a well-written, entertaining and intelligent read.
  • The Rock Star in the Mirror (or, How David Bowie Ruined My Life) on Nov. 07, 2012

    Purchased this book two days ago and then had to wait to read it because I'd let my NOOK battery die! But it was worth the wait. Ms Cathcart has written a lovely tale - highly original, nicely paced, great characters, and simply a pleasure to read. I don't read many books or stories twice - which is why I prefer ereading to print reading - but this is one story I expect to revisit in a couple of weeks' time. It was a lovely way to start my day.
