Books: Finally Out There

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 14, 2014 in Publishing |

After a good deal of hard work – which I am definitely getting used to! – our first three titles are now available on Amazon for anyone who wishes to buy through their system instead of through our shop or Etsy. That is, it is available on their US site but, for some reason, there […]

Selling On The Internet

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 8, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

I am amazed at how difficult it is to set up an account and sell books on the Internet. It’s not so much the regulations involved, more how difficult certain sites make it just to register, as if they really don’t want you to use their site, don’t want to earn their (often exceptionally high) […]

Nothing But Paperwork!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 3, 2014 in Publishing |

It is a very frustrating time, as far as my small business is concerned. We seem to be overwhelmed by paperwork, all the forms which need to be filled out, all the various institutions we have to register with, tax, selling on certain platforms, just general work. I wonder whether it is all necessary? Fine, […]

How To Kill A New Business

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 30, 2014 in Publishing |

Ever wondered how much work goes in to building up a business? I mean, from the very first idea right through the first two or three years of its existence, not just the actual paperwork and launch. Believe me, I can tell you from experience that it is a lot and, even after six months […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 27, 2014 in Publishing |

Publishing a book is one thing, getting people to show more than interest is quite another. There has to be a certain level of promotion, preferably through means which are as cheap as possible, and one of the methods is to offer copies for review. Any independent author will tell you, sending out review copies […]

Hard At Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 11, 2014 in Publishing |

The idea behind setting yourself a target is to achieve it. That has always been my philosophy and, even if I don’t always succeed, that is what I aim to continue with, certainly as far as my reading and writing – and, of course, my college work – are concerned. With my level of reading […]

Nearing Completion

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 1, 2014 in Internet, Publishing |

For once I have managed to keep a promise to myself and have worked – well, some of the time – through the day to get a good foundation for my online shop up and running. Of course I need to do more and of course it isn’t completed to my satisfaction, but what remains […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 27, 2014 in Publishing |

So many things that I want to do, and some that I really should do, but the will often just isn’t there. A good book calls, a glass of wine and, of course, some quiet time with the special person in my life. However, it’s time I really made a decent start on building my […]

Minor Additions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 30, 2014 in Publishing |

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 […]

Hidden News

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 24, 2014 in Publishing |

Amid all the highly publicized news from Amazon that they are thinking about using drones to deliver, and that they are considering using the vast amount of data they have gathered on customers to advance order, one small but interesting item of news seems to have slipped through the net. It is, however, one which […]
