One of the huge benefits of being an independent author is that you are at your own disposal, putting in the time, money and motivation that you want. If you have other commitments like a 9-to-5 job, children or another book to write then having a tailored self-publishing solution could be the way forward.
The leading self-publishers at New Generation Publishing fully understand what an intense, exhausting and gruelling process writing a first novel can be. They are fully able to present the first-time novelist with a package of features that can bring the best out of the ambitious and apparitional scribe. With the eventual outcome of a book always extremely unpredictable during the initial stages of creation, the experts at this well-regarded group of industry experts and insiders are able to support a writer's efforts in a number of key areas.
New writers hoping to get published are free to take advantage of New Generation Publishing. Whereas the battle to get recognised and supported by the traditional publishers tends to be tougher than ever due to increasing caution and uncertainty, new writers only need to invest a modest sum to see their work printed. There’s no need to order more books than necessary when you’re just starting out, and many writers have seen a limited run of around 100 books selling out quickly. If an initial print run if a success, it can pay to order a larger run next time, and you should see the chances of the main publishers taking a chance on you increase as a result of your success.
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.
