New Generation Publishing was created in 2009 as part of award-winning independent book publisher Legend Press.....
2015 has so far been a successful year for New Generation Publishing and it’s authors – showing a positive improvement of authors getting their books on bookshelves throughout popular bookshops and names throughout the country.
Being a new author can be an exciting time, but also a daunting one, there is so much to learn about the industry with so much to learn from peers. Taking part in as many seminars and learning opportunities as possible as well as networking events can be of benefit.
Choosing a good book cover design may be the last thing on your list of to-do’s after editing and polishing off a finished book, the good old saying of “you can’t judge a book by it’s cover” is great in sentiment and in reality most probably true, but when it comes to advertising your book in todays fast moving and visually distracted reading market, catching the attention of readers from e-book platforms, as well as in book shops may help increase book sales marginally. Below are a few tips giving you a rough guideline to stick to when doing a cover yourself or getting a professional to take care of it.
We have recently launched a sister company called Create Publishing, the creation of this company has an aim to offer services to authors that have a limited or shoestring budget or those that are happy to jump on-board and take care of the promotion and creation of books for themselves, the authors that choose to ‘go it alone’.
In our recent post we were discussing how New Generation Publishing have been making waves within the self-publishing industry with being one of the biggest names within the indie publishing scene, bringing together a collection of great writing talent to have one of the biggest collection of authors in the country.
This coming Friday marks 70 years since the end of World War II, in memory of this one of NGP’s authors, 82-year-old John Phipps has re-published a book of his wartime experiences.
If you’re interested in taking part in as many self-publishing related events to help improve your understanding of the industry as well as having the opportunity to network with fellow authors and pick up some tips for your independent publishing journey The Self Publishing Conference is coming in May and this could just be the event for you no matter where you are on your adventure.
After a takeover recently over of self publishing companies such as Authors OnLine and associates and our association with Legend times which is an independent collection of UK based publishing companies, New Generation Publishing is now considered one of the largest companies in the UK within self publishing, this is an achievement that we’re very proud of considering that the field is still so fresh and new. Although we have lots of experience working with authors from a traditional publishing background as well as working with a huge mix of authors within independent publishing, we still aim to improve our services and relationship with new and existing writers. There is lots of competition out there and we feel that our personal approach to working with authors has become paramount, which has contributed to our growth and success over the past few years and all because we’ve grown to one of the largest independent publishers in the UK doesn’t mean we are impersonal.
Building a reputation is a hard challenge for any new company, especially if the industry that you’re working in is relatively new. Here at New Generation Publishing we hear so much feedback from people and writers that we work with, it’s also great hearing their stories and experiences learned through their self-publishing journeys.
