My Experience of Self-Publishing led me to New Generation Publishing, having already gone through various important hoops. My manuscript, Nicola’s Ghost, had been critiqued by a Literary Consultant – in my case The Oxford Literary Consultancy headed by Stephanie Hale – and, with her support, I was taken on by a literary agent. However, our attempts at getting the book published were unsuccessful, possibly because I had no established readership and was totally unknown as a writer, making publishing my book too risky. In discussion, my agent I felt that it might be a good step to self-publish Nicola’s Ghost because, in that way, I would have the opportunity to build up a readership and make a traditional deal for a second book more likely.
