At CompletelyNovel we know how important it is for our writers to get as much publicity for their works as possible, and we know what a tough and time-consuming task that is. That’s why we teamed up with the lovely people at Big Book, Little Book to give our writers an excellent opportunity to feature in their Self Published Sunday slot throughout the month of September 2013.

We’ve noticed that many CompletelyNovel authors are making use of our low-cost publishing plans and no contract tie-ins to publish their book and prove its worth to agents and traditional publishers. And why not?! Self-publishing is a great way to show agents that your book has a readership. To help, we asked Alysoun Owen, the Editor of the ‘Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook’ and the ‘Children’s Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook’ published by Bloomsbury, to give her advice to self-published authors who are on the look-out for an agent or traditional publisher. Enjoy!
