On finishing it, I approached a long list of publishers and received several offers to publish with them, but I felt, the offers weren’t right for me.
As my husband will tell you, I’m not a patient person so until the right offer comes along, I’m self-publishing to get my books out there.
List of things I do:
Write, edit, format, create covers, buy bar codes and ISBN numbers, register it with the library, send a copy to the library, market it using as many social media channels as possible, create book art and videos, organise book tours, signings, events, create a website, maintain the website, contact book stores, connect with readers, connect with other authors…and that’s just for starters.
My husband calls me…
‘THE ONE WOMAN BOOK MACHINE’.
Back to my self-publishing journey, I’ve now sold nearly 1300 copies of Reasonable Lies, and got over 160 reviews which are mostly five stars.
