About me

My favourite book is Catch 22…and thinking about it, I haven’t read it for a while so I must dig it out. I remember reading it for the first time when I was about 16 and laughing out loud in my bedroom so much that my sister had to come down the corridor at home and check that I wasn’t having some kind of mental episode.

As a child, Roald Dahl was always my favourite. I still feel the same mix of fascination and fear when I glance over a copy of The Witches. Quentin Blake’s illustrations are fantastic.

When I was studying law, I was reading so many big fat textbooks and law cases that I didn’t want to even look at a book so I was quite relieved, from a literature point of view, to leave Uni and start a job where I could feel like reading was a relaxing pastime again!

Sounding ...Hi Anna - I am setting up an independent publishing company on a not-for-profit basis. Sounding Off Publishing. i will recover my business costs of course but the profits go to the authors as the criteria for being published by me is that they are experiencing poverty or have experience of / expound on mental health issues. it will include any genre of literature. that's just to give you my aims. i have been looking at print-to-order companies, particularly that can take care of distribution to Amazon, Google, Barnes & Noble etc. and i am quite taken with your set-up and how you charge. Lulu / Blurb and others price themselves out of the running. the only thing i am disconcerted on with your company is the lack of specific information on sizes and how a book's progress can be monitored - also whether you are able to handle any book that attracts massive demand. i am aware of and convert for all formats of ebooks, printing outlines etc - mine are in pdf/epub/awz/mobi as those 4 formats cover ALL ebook reader platforms. please can you direct me to more specific information on how i can track sales progress. i have 2 books to publish initially but this catalogue will grow, but i can't commit to a monthly payment until my concerns are resolved. also, i wasn't very impressed with the lack of take-up on some of your subscriber's queries, including when your site suffered a crash. does not imbue confidence, but i'm trusting you are addressing these issues for better reliability. thanks for your attention to these issues.

Not the select programme, as I know this has a 90 day exclusivity clause to start with. But on the normal Kindle Select Programme I'm pretty sure that the author cannot make their eBook available anywhere else. What is your knowledge on this? Have any authors published through KDP as an eBook, whilst simultaneously selling the book as a Print -on Demand through Completely novel? Thanks, Michael (more) and received+3
