Publishing Buddy

 Full details 

Amazon self-publishing is as significant to the written word as the first printing press

Don't think in terms of traditional publishing. Thanks to Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) a writer's creativity is no longer constrained by the whims of agents and mainstream publishers.

Self-publishing is not the consequence of innumerable soul destroying knock-backs. Who cares if some twenty-something publishing exec isn’t impressed by your deepest thoughts, do you really need that validation? It’s reckoned to take ten years to close a book deal, if you get the breaks that is.

Time’s a big factor if you’re of a certain age. Personally, I couldn’t wait for the enormous satisfaction of seeing my work in print. Right now, self-publishing could be your best option, but it doesn’t have to be a forever thing. It could just be your springboard to conventional publication. E L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey began life self-published, and has since sold 125 million copies worldwide. Maybe you’re coming to the conclusion that comparing traditional publishing and self-publishing is an apples and pears thing. And you’d be right.

Publishing Buddy is not a self-publishing sausage machine. I don't claim to employ a legion of staff members, churning out books by the thousand. What you get is just me. My 40 + years experience in the creative industry. And my personal attention.
