New Generation Publishing talks to all types of authors every day who are looking to publish their book.

Every author is different and every author’s needs and requirements are different. New Generation Publishing is equipped to work with all authors who want to self-publish their book.

Let’s take a look at the different types of authors:

Career authors

This is the author who wants to make a career out of writing and publishing. In most situations the goal of this writer is to be published traditionally and give up the day job to become a full-time author.

In some cases, the author has received rejection letters from agents and publishers and this is often nothing to do with the quality of their work – more often than not it is because their book does not fit with the agent or publisher. In many cases, it is because the publisher does not want to take on the risk of a new author, preferring instead to rely on their stable of existing authors and celebrities who will guarantee a return.

The option of self-publishing gives the author a chance to prove themselves in the market and create a business track record to show an agent or publisher that they are less of a risk.

Let’s face it, if an agent or a publisher is approached by an author who has self-published a book, proved the book has a market (based on their sales and reviews), then it is likely they will be taken more seriously as a potential author for them to work with.

New Generation Publishing works with many of these authors and has the publishing options available to help you become a published author and reach your market.

Business authors

It has long been said that the ‘book is the new business card’ and many business owners are promoting themselves and their businesses by self-publishing a book. With the majority of business owners needing to promote their products and company as quickly as possible, the option of self-publishing their book and getting it on the market in two to three months can give them an edge on competitors.

The published book can also be used at talks, seminars and presentations, impressing existing and potential clients while also increasing credibility and revenue.

In addition, there are writers who make a business solely out of their book, highlighting a market, promoting to it and selling high numbers of copies with a positive financial return.

New Generation Publishing has the experience to offer and advise all types of business author.

Niche authors

Many authors realise that the subject matter of their book may not appeal to a wide market, and they understand that self-publishing is an appropriate route to guarantee that their book is published and made available to a global market. With the correct marketing, their niche audience can be easily reached, books can be sold, and reviews and revenue can be generated.

If you contact New Generation Publishing today we will be happy to advise you on your publishing options.

Legacy authors

Some authors simply want their book published! And why not?

You have written a book that has been in the top draw of your desk for months, maybe years. Some people have read it and like it, so why not publish it and make it available to a global audience, and have it available for friends and family to buy now and in years to come? It might be a family history or a subject of local interest; whatever the genre or subject, New Generation Publishing can take your manuscript and turn it into a published book.
