Simon Fairbanks explains self-publishing. 

Simon Fairbanks reveals why so many authors now choose to self-publish, rather than holding out for a traditional book deal.

Based on first-hand experience, Simon explains how you can self-publish your own novel in both paperback and electronic formats, and instantly start profiting from your writing.

Simon Fairbanks is a fantasy author living in Birmingham. He has self-published two novels in his Nephos fantasy series, The Sheriff and The Curse of Besti Bori, and two short story collections, Breadcrumbs and Boomsticks. He is a committee member of the Birmingham Writers’ Group.
