No man is an island
John Donne was right when he said that ‘no man is an island.’ The same is true of a business, and so we’ve joined the Independent Publishers’ Guild. This 50 year old national network has more than 600 members.
Independent publishing is on the increase, which makes it all the more important for us to be professional and do a good job. We use many of the suppliers the large publishers use and most importantly, make sure a book is rigorously edited by someone who knows both editing and the market the book is aimed at.
Once I thought I could do everything myself. Now I fully appreciate the value of belonging to the right networks.
