On a recent walk past the ‘Hugging Tree’ (a favourite walk in my local park), I reflected on the time I spent at the London Book Fair. It was before the covid pandemic arrived on our shores; giving me the opportunity to meet with experts from all over the world, in the hope I would learn more about the publishing world, that would be to my advantage.
During my visit, I met and spoke with Steven Spatz, president of BookBaby, about my books and previous experience with self-publishing. It was a meeting that influenced my decision to publish my future books through BookBaby. The result to date, with three books published, is that I have no regrets as to the standard of publishing and ongoing support from them, excellent in every area.
Finding a self-publishing company in terms of results and cost, should be chosen very carefully. If not – as I know to my own experience – can lead to disappointment and dissatisfaction as I mentioned in my early book !0 Tips (see my website).
If the budding author is thinking of self-publishing; perhaps changing to a new publisher; or simply wanting more information on the subject, then I suggest they contact: https://www.bookbaby.com/partner-referral/william-long
