Hawkeye Publishing is a member of The Alliance of Independent Authors, giving us access to the three biggest book fairs – London,  BookExpo America, and Frankfurt – and much more.

Hawkeye Publishing was founded in 2002 as a Newspaper Publisher and over time has transformed into a small independent book publisher. We presently represent Carolyn Martinez and Cate Sawyer. Currently, we would consider taking on non-fiction authors with exceptionally written, informative and interesting books that fill gaps in the market place. Send a concise query email in the first instance, including details of the book’s content and your marketing platform. Do not send us your manuscript unless we ask for it.

Hawkeye Publishing also offers a range of writing services on an hourly rate. For small to medium sized businesses we offer internal communications, newsletters, media releases, and social media management. For self publishing authors we offer:  author coaching, structural assessments, editing, proofreading, book production, and digital and print-on-demand book distribution set-up. Through our knowledge and contacts we ensure you get competitive rates for all services you require. Utilising our hourly rate services to assist you to self-publish does not entitle you to Hawkeye Publishing representation.

Hawkeye Publishing Represents:

Our first featured author, Carolyn Martinez, is Brisbane based. She writes non-fiction to explore topical social issues from varying perspectives. Inspiring IVF Stories was published in 2011 and Finding Love Again in 2015. For a free sample of her writing, click here.

The former Editor/Owner of The Westerner newspaper has a MA (Writing) and lists Stephen King and his book On Writing as one of the greatest influences in her career. Her first two books received excellent reviews.

She has a talent for nurturing people; hence the interviewees in her book make for honest and riveting reading.

Carolyn is a sought-after editor, public speaker, business communications advisor, and coach to authors.

She is the founder of Brisbane Book Authors, and a member of Queensland Society of Editors.

Early experiences of loss (her sister died young – a victim of crime) leave her with a passion for exploring social issues in the pursuit of truth, understanding and justice. Watch this space.


Hawkeye Publishing is also excited to introduce Children’s Author Cate Sawyer and Illustrator Adriana Avellis! Discombobulated and Holy Guacamole It’s a Catastrophe are phonetics gold. The Umbilical Family is a conversation starter for families of adoption, egg donation, embryo donation, step parents, and same sex couples. It’s Raining Shoes is a delightful early reader for imaginative play, and Places to Poop is a hilarious toilet training aid to take the stress out of the process.  See our books page for more information. You’ll see much more from this dynamic duo. Contact us if you’d like a reading at your school.
