We try to post our reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. In other words, we give a free review it may take some time if we like your book and we read your book if it interests us. Definitely every penny worth, thank you so much.

But reviews are free. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the excellent work. Then you list sites that charge for reviews. I agree. Wish there was an easier way. I use family and friends.
Just be careful with paying directly for reviews Amazon does come in from time to time and slap wrists. Paid reviews are unethical, as are paid awards. We did introduce a digital and self-publishing section in the edition: that was a way of bringing together some content we already included for many years prior to that with new content — articles and listings — specifically aimed at new ways of publishing.
The ultimate hybrid author.

Some authors want to take on all or some of these responsibilities themselves. But the majority of these are sheep without a shepherd, and it is the purpose of this book to act as shepherd to the thousands of MSS, which are turned out every year and of which only a small minority ever appear in print.
We try to tell readers what is new each year — and we do produce a new edition annually because of shifts and changes in companies, contact details and new specialisms in the book world. We must have failed a little with Ian Sutherland. A strong reminder to all authors that the most important thing for writers — apart from writing itself — is to be aware and to read, read, read.

Please leave a comment. More books are due for release shortly. Debbie Young writes warm, funny feel-good fiction, including the Sophie Sayers Village Mysteries series, which begins with the bestselling "Best Murder in Show". Founder and director of the Hawkesbury Upton Literature Festival, she is a frequent speaker at other literary events.

How can my book sell if it is only available, yet not known publicly to exist? Indie authors are questioning whether the book is worth the money and shelf space.
Meaning that the WAYB is a waste of money for fiction writers. JK Rowling was rebuffed by scores of the graduates hired by publishers and agents to take a quick look at submitted manuscripts. Ditto Grisham. But is he human? He has strange friends and cold fingers. Then one day she opens an old cookery book and suddenly there appear multi-faceted aliens who fly away to invade Los Angeles.
But one stays behind and approaches Emma…… Can Nathan rescue her before all is lost? It is an excellent book but although it filled many hours when I would far rather have been writing, in the end it did not produce a publisher, nor an agent for me. Then came self-publishing and I found that I was back in control.
No more grovelling letters and expensive packages only hard copy was acceptable to be sent to agents who could not always be bothered to reply inundated with submissions is no excuse for not sending even a rudimentary acknowledgement. Thank goodness that there are writers out there who are prepared to self-publish regardless of what the traditional publisher thinks of them. Let me see. However, if I do want a reference guide to publishers and others in the publishing industry, it is available. Why is traditional publishing in a turmoil?

I believe that publishing is doing quite well. Writers might not be, but writing and publishing are not the same fields. As far as being in a vanguard, well, that might be true, but we are rather late to the party. Self publishing has been around for a very long time with an explosion in the ninetieth century because of changes in technology. And I think we should be honest, we are just taking advantage of changes in technology and distribution made by others. I think as long as self-publishing conversation is simply thumbing its nose at the rest of the publishing industry, we are not going anywhere.
It sounds more like sour grapes because we were not chosen and we are going to take our ball and go home. Is self-publishing a legitimate field and constrained by certain dynamics or its it just a club of disgruntled writers looking for opportunities to say we told you so? And what does it say about us when we practically use the same model as publishers, but then turn around and bash them? Every news article I read today about self publishing seems to be industry bashing—is that all there is to self publishing?
Personally, I think self publishing is a great avenue for creative people to earn a living, not a last resort because the traditional route did not work out or that I am afraid to try that route. I also think the traditional route is better suited to other creative professionals. It is good to have choice. The biggest issue today is sustainability. The current models of internet economics favor the big player that can aggregate earnings from a large number of free workers and that value comes from material value not intrinsic value.
Hi William, and thanks for your long and thoughtful comment.
