I’m excited to have her here today because she’s part of a new venture in publishing and she’s offered to tell us about it. So, I’m going to turn over Straight From Hel to Karen, aka Miss Footloose, so she can talk about A Writer’s Work.
Wonderful to have you here, Karen!
A NEW PUBLISHING VENTURE: A Writer’s Work
www.AWritersWork.com, an authors-owned site that offers books in e-book format at relative low prices.
AWW was recently launched by a group of multi-published authors, yours truly included, who were aware of the many changes in the publishing business and wanted to hack out a trail through the jungle to have a more direct and flexible way to deliver their work to their readers. The new technology made this possible, if not an easy safari. Getting the site off the ground was quite an adventure and the leader of our launching tribe, Patricia McLinn deserves laud and praise for all her efforts.
And how does this work, you ask? Well, here are the basics:
The AWW site itself is designed to be self-sustaining, not to make profit like commercial e-publishers. After expenses for the website and costs associated with selling, income from sales goes to the author. This is good for the author, obviously. It’s good for the reader because we can now keep prices lower than the ones on the sites of commercial e-book publishers. To keep the quality of the books high, participation in the site is by invitation only, and only commercially published authors are considered for participation. All authors retain the rights to their work. All works are protected by copyright laws.
What you’ll find on http://www.AWritersWork.com are books in various genres and categories – romance, suspense, women’s fiction, short-story anthologies, non-fiction and more. You’ll find newly released back-lists, as well as original fiction and non-fiction.
AWW is a work in progress. More authors have expressed their interest and the site will grow and more books will be offered as time goes on. For more information visit www.AWritersWork.com.
Thank you so much, Karen.
The Price of A Man, a lighthearted romance novel, and You’re Moving WHERE?! , non-fiction tales of the author’s (mis)adventures living abroad. Both are AWW original publications.
I know some authors have gone with a service to get their e-books out and some have done the process by themselves. Creating e-books is very daunting to me. I would need someone to hold my hand and walk me through it.
What about you? Leave a comment, especially if you’ve gone through publishing your own e-books. And feel free to ask Karen a question about A Writers Work.
