  1. Hello … I enjoy writing and put together several short children stories and have never looked into publishing and would like to. Any chance of talking to you on some pointers or put me in the right direction?
    Thank you,

    • Hi Sandi, thank you for your inquiry. Publishing is something that is becoming more available to the public than in the past, largely because of self publishing. Self publishing is when you publish your manuscript (book) using Print On Demand (POD) technology through the services of companies such as ‘CreateSpace’ (Amazon’s self publishing company). There are several similar companies such as ‘CreateSpace’ – just Google the term ‘Self Publishing’. I mention this first because it is the lowest cost solution and if you are willing to do the work yourself (these sites have all the steps for you to follow), you can publish your book with minimum cost and need for others to approve your book. A traditional publishing company typically only publishes authors who are already under contract with them and it is VERY difficult to get on with them without an agent. My company uses POD technology and I am a sort of hybrid company because I publish my books and a few select clients using the same technology but I also perform all the set up and formatting (all the technical work needed to produce a book). The self publishing companies you’ll find (such as CreateSpace, or Book Baby – there are several) will have services they charge for you to use when you self publish. Please do your homework and shop and compare their services and costs as they offer different ‘packages’ and some in my opinion can be more affordable than others. Please do your research and look for the company you think offers the best value for your money. If I can be of more assistance please let me know. Best regards, Wayne A Gulley (WAG Publishing).
