What Petra has to say about self-publishing

“When I published my first book, I did it through a publisher. While I was thrilled to have secured a publisher and it was a great learning process, plenty of mistakes were made. The images were all wrong, they made unauthorised changes and I ended up with a product that I was less than happy with. It was a lot of work, with very very little reward.

The next book I self published. It was a little more work – and stress – and finical outlay – but the rewards were plenty and I ended up selling over 20,000 copies.

Having said that, I had a very defined strategy right from the beginning and it was this, that made it a success financially and otherwise.

There is most definitely a formula when publishing a book – a formula that I can help you with – so you don’t make the same mistakes I made, end up with a product that you love (instead of hate) and one that is a success (especially dollar-wise!).”
