Published Writing


You can see the full range of my published hard copy works at my Lulu account. I love Lulu.com, it really does even the playing field and give some power back to the writer regarding the publishing of their work. The thing is, publishers are about distribution and sales. They have the means to distribute the books far and wide so that they sell. They make decisions of what they will and won’t publish each year based on their gut feelings as to what will sell and what won’t. They make more gaffs than good choices, as evidenced by the numerous books in the $2 bin out the front of book shops and of course the back room inventory that they carry but doesn’t sell out too often.

The hard thing is not writing the book, nor is it finding a literary agent to represent you or a publisher to publish the book. The hardest thing is selling the book. It can be the best story in the world but if people don’t buy it then it is a door stop and not much else. If you want to go the ‘vanity press’ route, and many famous authors have, then you can get into print and in that regard Lulu.com is no different. But they also offer you ways to market and sell your work. To get it taken on board by the major book chains and that is a saga all of its own!

This is a business. Like all businesses there are tricks, secrets, traps and a modicum of good luck and right place, right time. Here is my published work with links to where you can buy it. Most are my own writing however I am more and more involved with Editing and Publishing of late and have included these books as well.
