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 they have 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.

Contact me today to talk about your needs and learn what I can do to help you enjoy seeing your book into print.

I have worked with Michelle on the publication of my new self published book, 'Images From a Warming planet'. Michelle has given invaluable guidance to enable me to list the book on Amazon, so it is marketed in the correct way and gets maximum exposure. Michelle is knowledgeable and passionate about self publishing.
