Paperbacks underway

I’m delighted to say that the paperback versions of all of my self-published books are now underway. I’ve been umming and ahhing a lot just lately about whether to put all of my eggs in one basket or whether to scatter them about a bit. I really, really, really do like Draft2Digital and, as an ebook publisher and distributor, they are really, really, really good. However, they don’t do hardbacks, and while they do do paperbacks, it seems that their […]

Moving back to KDP – for now

As we inch ever-closer to the 1,000 followers mark, so too do we get closer to the competition to win a bumper pack of all of my published paperbacks, including the two books from Pen & Sword. Oh yes, and chocolate … This means that, alongside everything else that I do, I’ve been checking that all the paperbacks are there. And if they’re not there, I’m publishing them. I self-publish everything I produce myself on either Draft2Digital or Lulu, apart […]

Tuesday 12 November 2019 (list alert!)

I had a busy week last week removing most of my self-published books – ebooks and paperbacks – from Amazon KDP.

They also want exclusivity, and I don’t like that either. If I decide to publish hardback books again, […]

I don’t think KDP is as good as CreateSpace. I don’t think it’s as easy to use. I don’t think it looks as professional. And it looks as though it may cost me more in the long run as KDP seem to insist that you order a physical copy of your book to proofread, at […]

News: new platform for digital editions

I have a new platform for my digital editions. At the moment, only Diary of a Scaredy Cat has been migrated over. But eventually, all of my ebooks in various formats will be available from Pronoun, apart from those traditionally published. Hardbacks will still originate on Lulu and paperbacks will still be over on CreateSpace. But all eformats will eventually be available via Pronoun. Let me know what you think!

Two books now available on Kindle

I’m delighted to announce that not one but TWO of my re-branded, re-packaged and re-published books are now available in the Kindle store on Amazon. This is one (or two!) of the things I’ve been working on recently. NIGHT CRAWLER: A MARCIE CRAIG MYSTERY and TWEE TALES are now available, on Kindle, for £2.99 and £1.99 respectively. If you click on the covers, you’ll be taken directly to the Kindle store. But if you’re in a different country, still follow the […]
