YouWriteOn to publish Hedge Witch ...

Saturday, 27 September 2008

... OK, along with 4,999 other books. They emailed me a couple of days ago saying they planned to publish 5,000 books from YouWriteOn before Christmas. The terms seem pretty good :

Books will be available to order through the YouWriteOn website, and members will be able to get in touch with readers and reviewers who have enjoyed their book excerpts on site. YouWriteOn authors will receive 60% royalties for each copy sold to the public, compared to 12 to15% royalties that authors usually receive through mainstream publishing. Your book will be of the same quality as a bookstore paperback. You retain all rights to your book at all times. Open to UK and US residents only.

So, Hedge Witch has been signed up! Which is fantastic and will solve all your Christmas present problems at a stroke. Possibly. The only thing is, this has prompted me to go back through the book and edit the text one more time. Always worth doing, I guess, but suddenly I have a deadline as manuscripts must be sent to YouWriteOn prior to October 31st. So now that's become a top priority ...
