I am an author who has just finished writing my third novel. I self-publish on various online book stores including Amazon. I have had over 20,000 downloads for my books on Amazon and have reached their number one spot on for the Dark comedy genre category. I have a readers' list of 5000 of people that follow my work. I have studied creative writing at college and online and taken many book marketing and self-publishing courses. I have become very experienced in all aspects of self-publishing. If this is a route you are considering, I can save you a lot of time and money by providing you with up-to-date advice on how to get started.
