Thinking if doing it?
Writing a book?
Maybe for yourself, or to write stories for your kids or grandkids? Or a book you’ve been meaning to start for…well…ever?
Writing one is a challenge for sure, but getting a publisher is a sole-destroying chore, and for all but a few, ultimately ends in disappointment. It’s for this reason self-publishing has become so popular in just ten years. It’s matured enough for go-it-alone authors to create books to match the quality of the top mainstream publishers.
Half-a-century of book publishing in the UK has been turned on its head in just a decade due to the internet, Amazon, desktop publishing and eBooks.
I was similar to many. In need of a change from a long corporate career, I took a leap of faith to become a fantasy author. I tried self-publishing and to my surprise my first book hit No1 on Amazon for Epic Fantasy, knocking The Hunger Games from the top slot in Waterstones.
Others began asking me for help to try self-publishing, and a community of new writers soon sprang up, hungry to write good stories and get out there. This spawned NAGS (New Author Groups) which is in its fifth year; and created my self-publishing business REDBAK Publishing which is in its tenth year, providing the full range of high-quality services to create stunning books to match any top traditional publisher.
