Some people may consider them major changes, for me they are simply enhancements to the service my publishing company provides, and information which has been missing from the website so far.
Any publishing company which wishes to survive needs not only to sell books, but also to gain new authors, new works to keep the roll going. I do not doubt that there are many publishers who regret publishing their contact information, just because of the mass of manuscripts they receive as a result from potential authors, or those who believe that their writings must be published. Perhaps, one day, that will be the same with my company but, at the moment, it is fair to say that the number of people sending in ideas and works for consideration is limited.
But they should all have their chance, and so I am updating the company website at the moment to give rather more detailed information about how to submit ideas and what we are looking for in our publishing program.
Sales are also of vital importance, although this goes without saying! So the revamped site also has details on ordering books direct from us, rather than waiting for them to – one day in the near future – appear on other online services.
At the moment we are not offering works from other publishers or independent authors, but this is in the pipeline too.
I’m hardly expecting a deluge, but it is good to be prepared!
Love & Kisses, Viki.
