Audio Books have become popular recently. This may becaucse the increases in digital mobile platforms available make it easy for busy people to asimilate their books while on the go. Peatmore Press has managed to sell a few copies of its audio books without even actively promoting them. Now, all three of its audio books, Returning Love, The Queen’s Screech and The Christmas Turkey, are available at audible.co.uk, amazon.co.uk and Apple’s iTune Store. It will be interesting to see how well they sell.
To find the links to the audible, amazon and itunes websites go to http://peatmore.com and click on the links to the audio books mentioned above.

Treating your writing as a business is a must for anyone taking first steps in self publishing.
New technologies in printing have made it possible to produce books in small quantities at low cost. Authors can be their own boss, have editorial freedom, be responsible for pricing and advertising and keep all the profits. The disadvantage of this means that as they have no track record in the publishing industry they become a small fish in a big pond and their publications thought of as “vanity publishing” and inferior. They can make basic editing errors and are responsible for all losses.
