Creativia - My New Publisher



I thought it was about time I told you a little about my new publisher, Creativia. You might recall that, on an earlier posting, I mentioned how Creativia had republished my novel, The Trojan Project.  However, since then they have been in touch about republishing my other two novels, Divorcees.Biz, and Only Twelve Days. I agreed to the merge some time ago, but it has taken Amazon over two weeks to complete the transaction. It seems they were having technical problems. Nevertheless it now seems that all is sorted and All three of my novels are published by Creativia Publishing.

To begin with, Publisher, Miika Hannila, is the great guy behind Creativia Publishing. One of the best things about him, apart from his friendliness to his authors, is that he always reads his emails and replies to our queries very promptly. What more could you want? He is always there to listen/read what we have to say.

So, who are Creativia Authors? Well for a start, we are all a really friendly bunch, who try to help each other along the rather difficult road of getting our novels out there.  Let's face it, getting a novel accepted for publication is only the first step of a long haul flight. Once published the book needs to be promoted. If the readers don't know it's there, how are earth are they going to be able to buy/download a copy? Don't you see? All those readers out there are missing out on a good read, because they haven't heard of our books. But promoting a novel is like walking through a minefield. However with the help of our fellow authors, it can be quite fun. Like I said, we are all very friendly and helpful towards each other. We are all enthusiastic about welcoming new authors who have signed up with Creativia.

However, there is always one person in any group whose enthusiasm stands out above the rest.and Creativia is no exception.  Julie M. Northup is a star when it coming to helping to promote our novels. Nothing is too much trouble for her. You just have to put forward an idea which has been milling around in your head, and before you know it, she has it up online for you.  Even on a trip to the Zoo, she was giving info about getting books out there.  Actually, while we are talking about Julie you might like to take a look at one of her books, Fears Of Darkness, which is only 99c/99p for a short time. I have downloaded a copy myself and am looking forward to reading it.

But it must be said that all the authors are brilliant. From Brian L Porter, writer of several novels about Jack the Ripper,
who I have known online for a number of years right down to some of the newest members, they are all keen to help each other. And this is how it should be. One person plugging away can't reach many people, but if several authors get together - watch out world!

So that's it in a nutshell. You heard it here first - Creativia  is a publisher to watch.

Have a Great Day

Cheers!!
