Virtual Event Virtual Event

Join the Warwickshire Group on Wednesday 25 May from 7.15pm for an online session on self-publishing. We’ll be joined by Howard Matthews who has successfully self-published over 30 titles. Howard will cover the basics:

  • Background to self-publishing
  • Numbers – so few speakers seem to spill the beans about costs and profits, Howard is happy to do so!
  • How to do it – Howard will run through how to self-publish, including a demonstration of Amazon to show the screens and steps to get a book online
  • Kindle unlimited explanation and other ebook options
  • Reports
  • Paperbacks – how to produce paperbacks and your options
  • Marketing – Howard will give a brief overview as this can be a talk on its own
  • Summary – pitfalls, benefits, warnings and help

Howard Matthews’ background is that following some Radio and TV comedy work, he has been self-published for 10 years now, kicked off by the usual round of rejections from agents and publishers – who said there was no such thing as Medieval Crime Comedy….

He now has thirty titles under the pen name Howard of Warwick (appropriate…) in both ebook and paperback and has established his own publishing company getting books into the mainstream book trade. He has 150,000 sales in total now with an average of around 20,000 per year with 3 to 4 new titles each year.
