BOOKLOCKER ONE OF THE HONEST ONES!!

When I was a novice and trying to move away from traditional publishing I made so many errors that I began to question the wisdom my actions.

When I was a novice and trying to move away from traditional publishing I made so many errors that I began to question the wisdom my actions. The internet was growing, companies like Amazon were beginning, and there was a lot of noise about Amazon and self-publishing. I very quickly learnt that for me Createspace was not going to be an option. I use my own programme to create ebooks and print books.  The Ultimate Ebook Convertor. 

Since I began, all those years ago, Amazon has turned into a form of Ebay, and they are frankly, a mess. Authors no longer get a good deal from publishing with Amazon. That is not all. The scammers came out of the woodwork and began to offer “publishing services” at ridiculous and usurious prices.

I was one of the fortunate ones who found Angela Hoy, and her company BOOKLOCKER quite early on. I have stayed with them ever since. I hope, in the near future they may even begin to deal in the latest big-selling audiobooks.

Well, this is deliberately not a long post. It is simply to say THANK YOU to Angela Hoy, and to the entire crew at Booklocker for their magnificent service over these past six or seven years. They give me some measure of security. Something others, and that includes Amazon, do not.

If YOU want to publish through Booklocker, just visit their website for a quick look and then get in contact with them. I can promise you that although there is some cost, it is minimal compared to just about everyone else.  Angela is a staunch defender of author’s rights, and often writes articles about authors and writing. I might make a mention of the fact that if you write anything for Booklocker and it is accepted by them, they  WILL PAY for your work. Yes folk, you got it right! Booklocker DOES pay for good articles.

Come and see them here, and send a query letter to them along with a piece of your Mss. Be aware though that Booklocker does not publish work they think is inferior. While they will be happy to help you to polish and work your book, not everyone gets to have their book produced by them. That is one of the reasons Booklocker authors STAY with Booklocker and rarely stray far away from home.

This is where you will find a huge number of books for just about every taste. I have not listed them one by one due to a lack of space. I can highly recommend them and if you would like to purchase a copy of my last novel THE GIRL FROM KOSOVO this is the place to buy it. (Note: I also publish in hardback at very reasonable prices!) You can buy a HARDBACK FOR ONLY $31. Try getting a good quality hardback on Amazon for that price!

What do I call myself? A novelist? A journalist? Writer on demand? Copywriter? Ghostwriter? Poet? Is there a single word to describe all these things? if anyone knows one please tell me. I started out life as a journalist after my service time in the RN. I was 22. My love then was music writing, contributing articles to most of the pop/rock magazines of the time. As time went by I ghostwrote biographies for celebs, wrote novels, and made a general living from writing everything from love letters to translating menus in China to acceptable English. I have written greetings cards, manuals, How to books on so many subjects I forget. My living has been as a writer on demand. So, my blog is an eclectic collection of HOW MY BRAIN WORKS. Recently I started writing blogs for company blogs. In my retirement I find myself writing more, about more subjects than I ever covered as a roving journalist. I ask myself why having reached the age of leisure why I am now busier than ever before! My last novel, The Girl From Kosovo has led to a second, which will be in your bookshops next year 2019, and my new anthology of shorts with the title Picking Up Peas With Chopsticks has just been uploaded as an ebook. (It's a pot boiler so don't expect a print version any time soon.) If you have a blog, or a job to offer, I'm an obsessive researcher and turnaround time is fast. Yes, I know, I'm a HACK. A writer for money. A gun for hire. But hey... we all have our failings. Thanks for calling in. Feel free to chat and comment. I'll even get back to you with a thank you note!
