Self-Publishing Stories on Writing.ie: Lauren Clark

4 Apr

Every Wednesday between now and when I run out of stories (!), I’ll be using Self-Printed, my blog on Writing.ie, to showcase the experiences of some self-publishers I’ve encountered along the way on my own adventures in self-printing. Other people’s stories are a great way to find out what you should—and more importantly, shouldn’t— be doing, and maybe will even inspire you with some ideas on how to promote your own self-published book. That’s the plan, anyway.

The first self-publishing story is that of Lauren Clark, who self-published Stay Tuned (which has a brilliant cover, while we’re on the subject. Clever, eye-catching and highly suitable.) Click here to read it.

If you’d like to submit your own self-publishing story, read this post for details.

    I really wanted to add a comment to Lauren’s post but wasn’t able to without signing up for a course I needed to pay for, so I hope you don’t mind but I just wanted to say thanks to Lauren because she gave me some extra resources to go and check out and a really helpful set of 12 hints and tips. It is true, that we learn a lot when we make our own mistakes, but those who are wise learn even better when observing other people’s lessons too.

    I loved Lauren’s post for the same reasons Linda gave, so thank you.
    I’m intrigued by your decision to publish in paperback as well as ebook, Lauren. Would give us your thoughts on why you decided to do this? And has it been worthwhile?

Ah, go on. Tell me what you think...
