Independent Publishing

 
Working with a small independent press like Fingerpress might to some, seem hard work. My situation shows it isn’t. You write your story;your publisher likes it and then what? Big publishing houses get your book out there in their impersonal way and although you are assigned an editor to workwith, calls will probably remain unanswered and everyone is busy. Not so in a small press and certainly not with Fingerpress. You know who you’re dealing with and the attention you get in revision is amazing. It’s a growing and very professional organisation that has time for its authors.
 
To be honest, I’d rather be part of a rising new organisation than an older, bigger and dare I say it, more turgid production line. I’ve thought for a long time that big 6 churn out the same old stuff from the same old authors because they think they are assured of profit. Things are changing now with self-publication where some very new authors are making a killing. But there’s more to writing and getting published than making money – it’s about being creative and about telling a story people want to read.
 
What do I know about it? Well, WW2 book number 3 is about to come out in a week or two. I’ve been involved all the way through. We disagreed over the cover to some extent but when they sent me the provisional cover I was knocked out! That’s it over there. I guess you can’t judge a book by its cover but you can judge a cover by its book – if you know what I mean! :-)
