Houston Writers Guild - Indiepalooza

I spent last weekend at Indiepalooza - organized by the Houston Writer's Guild. It's a 3-day writing and business conference designed to cover a wide variety of topics relevant to Independent book publishing. Things like; the craft of writing, contract law, copyright and trademark issues, motivation, how to publish, new audiobook services, and many more.

It was great to connect with so many local authors, but it also reminded me how much of an uphill battle it is to get a book out there. I've spent years learning the craft, researching vendors, understanding the relevant contracts, and most important - how to successfully market a book. I couldn't believe how many authors I met who had finished a book, but weren't sure what to do next.

People like the ones I met this weekend are the reason I started Cobble Publishing. Getting a book into the hands of readers can be HARD. If you don't have the time and energy to spend learning all of the pitfalls around publishing, then frankly, readers won't ever see it. Even if you do get your book published and learn some marketing techniques, there are a million other books coming out every year. Without access to an established platform, it's nearly impossible to cut through that noise.

You see where I'm going with this? Cobble Publishing has a proven track record of producing and marketing Fantasy Fiction. We've sold over 80,000 copies and are rapidly gaining momentum. Our platform and network grows daily. Don't you want access to that?

For Cobble Publishing authors, we put in the effort it takes to make your book successful. We will invest in you in the form of advance royalties. We help with developmental, copy, and proof editing. We ensure a top quality product with professional formatting, covers, and promotional copy. We produce a marketing plan that we will contractually commit funds to. We sell to our exclusive list of Fantasy readers.

Publishing a book and finding a market is HARD. Don't you want to give your manuscript the best possible chance for success? If you are sitting on the sidelines, wondering what to do with that novel - submit it here. You'll never be a famous author without taking that first step :)
