About the project

As an Independent Author you have set about things in a totally different way to an Author that has an Agent, Publicist, and all the other things that you may not realise you need. 

 

Writing is a fantastic outlet, many have hidden writing talents. It may only be in the format of one book, who knows you may be the next best seller. Writing is the easiest part...

Finding an Editor that understands your needs and will work with you is hard, self-publishing is an excellent format for the majority of Authors, but it does not stop at writing and editing.

 

Cover designs, will the book be in paperback, hardback e-book, all three? Are there tie ins with certain printers? Do you need a website, do you know how to build one? Or run a blog? Do you know how to advertise cheaply through social media? What is your understanding SEO? Would you for instance know what a Beta reader is or how to even fond them?

 

Seems like a lot doesn't it, well that's not even half of it. 

One the big issues that Independent Authors have is creating a fan base, once you have written and published your first book the best thing to do is promote, promote, promote and forget about it. Start on the next book immediately, the more books you have in your shelf space the better it will be and the easier it will be to get sales and fans. People want to see that an Author has plans. 

One way of doing this is to invite other Independent Authors to join you and use your Publishing name on their books, thus the bookshelf fills faster and people begin to take notice. 

 

That's what this is all about, I am not a printing company, (though I do have access and contacts) I am offering to help those who need it and join me.
