Self-publishing project management

Self-publishing project management

If you are a writer you probably find the idea of self-publishing daunting. To be, honest only the most hardened person could take on a project of this size while opening their creation to public scrutiny with no fear or trepidation.

Many businesses have sprung up to help the aspiring author self-publish in a hassle free way. But that has two downsides.

  • The cost is the most obvious; this kind of book shepherding wields a hefty price tag.
  • The second is the loss of control. By putting an intermediary between you and any service providers you might end up with a ‘product’ you don’t like. Ah, that is another unpleasant result, your book is suddenly a product.

I believe in a different way

A way of supporting new authors through the maze of options. Reminding them of tasks and answering their questions clearly and directly. And I would like to offer that service to you.

So, no flashy website. No offer to put you in touch with a range of carefully vetted suppliers. No ‘one size fits all’ programme. Just good honest support. With a carefully tailored checklist, email conversations and phone calls to a real person. Who has done it all and promises not to ‘reach out’, ‘loop around’ or plan your ‘inbound marketing’.

My qualifications are my war wounds. I have self-published – trawling through gigabytes of information so that I could work out what to do and make informed decisions. Let my experience lighten your load. If you would like to learn about my experience, visit this post category.

I would love to meet writers in the East Midlands and will give free presentations about self-publishing to writers’ groups.
