Self Publishing Solutions

The steps to self publishing your own book are many and possibly seem a little daunting.
But the good news is that you've already done the hard part!

The Steps to Self Publishing

  1. Have a manuscript that you are happy with and can call complete
  2. Identify a publishing company
  3. Create a book cover
  4. Produce the interior and cover files in line with the publishing company's guidelines
  5. Identify the price point for your book
  6. Order a proof copy
  7. Approve the proof and order as many copies of your book as you need
  8. Create an eBook version of your book
  9. Publicise your book and get selling!

Step 1 is the only step that I can't help you with. All the others I can.
I have a wealth of experience in turning author's hard work into physical books that also reside online as eBooks.

Mark is an extremely talented and imaginative illustrator. He did an outstanding job on the illustrations for my children's picture book and its front cover. I was over the moon with Mark's pictures and it was an absolute pleasure to work with him. Colette Warbrook - Children's Author
I can't recommend Mark highly enough. He's been my 'go to' artist for personal, business and educational commissions for a number of years and has hit the brief every time... even when my brief was vaguer than vague! I know I can have really strong ideas, but then be less than good at visualising and capturing them. Mark brings ideas and words to life in the most creative of ways and has such a range of styles that I couldn't ever imagine wanting or needing to go elsewhere. He just 'gets' what I want even when I don't! Helen B.
Mark is a fantastic, reliable and creative artist. Highly recommended A* Matt W
