I’m a Scottish novelist. After seven years with a literary agent and many close things with mainstream publishers – but ultimately no success in getting a deal – I’ve decided to go it alone and epublish my novel ‘Amsterdam Rampant’ (which was shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize 2012, one of the biggest prizes in the world for unpublished novels).
My goal is to sell one thousand ebooks in one year – which will be difficult, as self-published ebooks sell on average around 300 units. But I’ll give it my best shot!
Join me as I go through the step-by-step process of preparing my novel for publication, launching it, marketing it, and selling it.
Along the way, I also hope to achieve the following:
- Explore and understand the opportunities out there in epublishing
- Provide an advice shop for other writers considering epublishing
- Help new writers avoid the same mistakes I made (and make)
- Apply my 12 years’ experience in international business and my MBA studies to the process of epublishing
