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.

Over the last decade the book industry has changed more rapidly than at any point in over a century. Much of this change has been caused by the rise of the Internet and other technological changes.
The first thing you need to do with your before you start writing is to pick a genre that interests you. What’s a genre? A themed bookshelf in a bookstore – or the top level(s) of book categories on a website. If your market is your audience, then your genre is your first narrowing of audience.
If you are a newly self-published author and wanted to start off a particular buzz around a new title, a great small piece of publicity is getting your pen name out there in local publications.

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.
