The UK-based Self-Publishing Magazine was, up until 11th April 2016, a quarterly print/online valuable resource for self-published and independent authors not only in the UK but all over the world. The print version was glossy and contained all sorts of useful articles written by proven experts in the publishing world, sharing their experiences in order to help self-published authors get the best out of their writing and sell more books. The publication had a yearly subscription price of £24.95 for the print and online versions.
Yesterday, it relaunched as an online mag only and – this is the good bit! – it’s totally FREE! No more subscription, just free advice, free tips, free news. My favourite articles are:
If you’re a self-published author or aspiring author you can do worse than bookmark this site. I’ve kept my old print copies because of the useful information contained within.
There is, however, one feature that’s missing, but I hope it won’t be missing for long: the book review page of self-published books with the book review library, but I understand that they are rebuilding their staff base again and so giving reviews won’t be easy. It was nice to see a review in print with the old version, though, so I hope they reconsider. I need more reviews of my books and they were kind enough to review Abbie’s Rival, Epiworld and Big Brother. I was waiting for a review from them for Goalden Sky, but it doesn’t look like that will happen now. 😦 The author interview page was good, too: I got one of those as well! Let’s hope they bring back the opportunity for indies to shout about themselves and their work!
