Our publishing journey

As a small independent publisher we have been to publishing and writer events, read lots of books, blogs and tweets, and joined some helpful societies in order to make sure we get the best product and do the best job we can, learning from others and making as few mistakes as possible.

The blog postings here are the story of our journey so far. Many postings will be an aide-memoire for us on the processes we do, as we do them, so we know what to do the next time. We hope these will also be of interest to other new small publishers and also help self-publishers. It isn’t meant as a comprehensive publishing guide, it is a reflection of what we do – we don’t suggest these are the best or the only ways to do things.

Producing An Audiobook With Findaway Voices (repost)

We’re thrilled to have this guest post about our audiobook journey with Findaway Voices included on the wonderful The Creative Penn blog. Joanna Penn is a self-publishing guru and if you are starting as an author and looking at self-publishing you can’t do better than to read her blog, her books or listen to her podcast.
