Another reason I’ve been extremely busy is that I am the affiliate editor for Lavabrook Publishing Group, a publishing house for indie authors. If you are interested in self-publishing, or you know someone who is, I’d definitely suggest passing the link along—and no, not because I’m affiliated with it. :) The rates are much more affordable than the competitors, the product is extremely high quality, and Lavabrook works on some of the book’s product details to help increase its visibility and ranking. No other indie publishing house I know of does this.
Below I’ve included Lavabrook’s first blog post to kick off their launch today. If you decide to peruse the site, you might catch a glimpse of my upcoming novel (under my pen name Laura Thalassa) and my upcoming book on editing tips!
Laura and Dan are proud to announce that Lavabrook Publishing Group, their indie publishing house, goes live today! What does this mean for you? If you've written a book and have absolutely no idea what to do next, we're now here to help. Lavabrook is for authors who've had to compromise one too many times for a tasteless agent or publisher, writers who don't want to pay thousands of dollars to self publish but still want some serious quality—and someone who knows them by their first name, not their customer ID number—and anyone who wishes the whole damn publishing business was just simpler. We definitely do.
We're indie authors ourselves (or soon to be, in Laura's case), and we wouldn't wish navigating those waters on anybody. But now that we've made it through (and learned a few things) we think we might be able to help other writers do the same.
So check out our site, see what we're about, and join the growing ranks of indie authors taking back control from the media conglomerates that dominated yesterday's publishing world.
