In late 2007 I had an idea for a blog. I’d been self-publishing books since 1990, long before the birth of print-on-demand technology and e-books. My career had taken me into many different areas — retail, logistics, publishing, journalism, band management, and marketing and promotion. I felt I had an experience to share as an author and also an insight into the world of book publishing. If by recording my experiences through a blog could help just one or two other authors along their journey, then I would be happy with that.
Some long-time readers of The Independent Publishing Magazine might remember the very first online version of the magazine (or blog as it was then). Originally in 2008 the magazine was called POD, Self-Publishing & Independent Publishing and that lasted until late 2010. Here is just one version of the magazine from around that time.
