D.I.Y. Publishing

My South African writing friend Judy Croome is doing it for herself! She is self publishing her book Dancing in the Shadows as an ebook and she made her own book trailer. This is her first attempt at making a video and I for one think it is fabulous!It really gives me inspiration to try and do an ebook of my own, one of my New Year's resolutions that seems to be slipping from my grasp.

Take a look at it here.

Good luck with the book Judy! If this haunting trailer is anything to go by it is going to be great!

Lauri! How kind of you! Thanks so much for highlighting my video here. I'll definitely enter you in the draw (I think you deserve the extra two entries as well!)

This DIY publishing is quite nerve-wracking, but also so exciting. If you're keen to do en e-book, you should.

Traditional publishing is a great writing path for some - there's a wonderful support system in place - but for someone like me who doesn't like to be caged, self-publishing is a breath of fresh air. And e-books have removed the biggest difficulty which faced self-publishers before: cost. It's so cheap to get a really professional book out.

I'm glad you liked the trailer adn hope you like the book as much (I'm nervous now!)

And thanks again for the shout-out; it's much appreciated.
