Say Books is a digital publishing services and publishing company based in Auckland, New Zealand, working with people from around the world.
Reimagining publishing in an age of great change is very exciting. The digital world has tremendous potential to bring people closer together, and also paradoxically to reduce personal interaction. We have made a conscious decision to put human relationships, trust and care for the people we serve at the centre of our business approach.
