I’ve had nine days off from my main job and have been able to get on with a lot of the little jobs I’ve had hanging around.
The main one though is that a new feature called Publisher Profile has now been initiated, several publishers have been in touch to be part of this already. If you’re an independent publisher and want to take part could you answer these questions and send the answers to firstname.lastname@example.org
- When did you start publishing?
- What made you want to start an independent publisher?
- What genres do you specialise in?
- Where are you based?
- Do you have a submission window, if so when?
- What is your submission procedure?
- Who are you (team photo if possible)?
- What was your background in the book industry before this venture?
- Talk about some of your books if possible, upcoming, favourite?
- Some photos, please
- Website/Facebook/Instagram/Twitter details please
I’ve also collated a lot of information for the April, May, June, and July preview posts. Again if you want to be part of this please send me details of your upcoming publications email@example.com.
