Press release: “Successful self-publishing”
A WORKSHOP FOR WRITERS PLANNING TO SELF-PUBLISH
By popular request, this 2-hour workshop was presented on the 22nd March by publishing consultant Zoe Meyer at the CREATIVE COLLECTIVE GALLERY in Ashford's Park Mall. Eight participants from Ashford and surrounding villages came to learn about giving their self-published books the professional look essential for future sales.
Layout, design, ISBN's and marketing were among the themes discussed animatedly during the evening. Break-out groups ensured that everyone got to know each other better and exchanged ideas and experience. There was also a focus on skills they need to develop and so become better known by their reader audience. Everyone left feeling better equipped to tackle self-publishing their own written work, whether short stories, YA literature, travel tales, poetry or the longer novel.
It was decided that the 8 participants would form a ‘book-producing group’ with a view to putting up a joint website where they could showcase and make videos of readings from work in progress.

Zoësbooks is about self-publishing painlessly.
Zoë is on the end of a phone, or alternatively you can send her an email and tell her about your project. Her charges are reasonable and transparent and as you will see on our testimonials page, really do often exceed all our clients' expectations.

Zoësbooks is good at developing clients' projects and in some cases picking up the pieces when clients have tried to produce books with the larger publishing operators, with unhappy results.
“The first and most important benefit for me is that I feel my book is in safe hands. The other is that whenever something happens I share my worries and doubts with you. Your common sense and reassuring way gives me such a sense of relief. Thank you!” Sue P
