Self Publishing

Well, here's a fascinating story about self publishing of a type. Kate Thompson, a well known chick lit author with books and books under her belt was turned down byu her publishers (is there hope for the rest of us when someone with a track record like that is removed from the lists?) and so she did it herself. Online for taster chapters and then posted out the rest. Fantastic. Of course she already had a gaggle of readers waiting for her books and on emailing lists and the like but still. What an acheivement. You hear so many horrors stories or not so much horror as hard slog and not worth it stories about self publishing. Good to hear one that works.

Here's her link.

Helps to have a link from Marian Keyes newsletter too!
