30 Jun You See a Writer … We See an Author
A publishing paradigm has evolved. It shifts power away from traditional and vanity publishers to writers. Accordingly, the roles they once played is disappearing. Self-publishing, often called Indie publishing, is the new normal.
Jim McRobert. Author of novella, Doing Good, realised self-publishing offered him the opportunity to produce his book.
Furthermore, the joy of seeing his book in print, inspired him to write a follow-up. He said, “It’s a heady experience when you can create your own publication with the support of the Pickawoowoo team”.
Author of Horses Heartache and Healing, Elizabeth Dennis, self-published. She thought it was not possible to produce a professional book using these methods. Like Elizabeth, more and more writers are becoming independent (indie) and successful authors, without having to travel the traditional publishing road.
There is no doubt. By 2020, self-published authors will account for 50 per cent of book sales.
Certainly, Pickawoowoo’s award winning publishing company offers integrated print and digital distribution services. Access to over 39,000 booksellers, online retailers and libraries around the world.
The company helps authors’ connect to every major e-book retailer in the world – Amazon Kindle, iBooks and Kobo. As well as 70 emerging e-book retailers.
Writers combine these services with Pickawoowoo’s online marketing and social networking tools. A writer’s dream to be an author, or ‘authorpreneur’, becomes possible. Practicable and Pleasurable.
With this in mind, self-publishing is more affordable than many realise. A wonderful option for authors, in particular:
1.Whose books may have gone out of print;
2.Tired of closed doors from traditional publishers;
3.Who wish to print small volumes rather than a garage full of books.
Therefore, the team at Pickawoowoo make it hard to distinguish between a traditional or self-published book. They have become the industry bellwether. Particularly knowing what gives authors their best shot at success. Moreover, pioneering low printing cost opportunities. Above all, giving authors direct access to all royalties and rights.
Quality is Pickawoowoo’s mantra. Shown in their work and their impressive list of awards.
We have appreciated the recognition of others in our industry. In the long run, what is most important to us? It is the satisfaction and gratitude of the people we have assisted in becoming self-published authors.
