Christmas is the perfect season to get involved in The Great Get Together with so many festive feasts going on.

So, when you tuck into your turkey, or munch on your mince pies over Christmas, ask your friends and family to donate a few pounds, it will go a long way to providing life-saving treatments. http://greatgettogether.actionagainsthunger.org.uk

Self Publishing: Selling Platforms

Tuesday, 25 October 2016 02:24

Having just self published for the first time, I wondered if others might find my research and experience of “upload your work and we’ll print and sell it” platforms useful.

The myriad of conditions you sign to are often hidden and put a different face on the company. Suddenly, their bouncy, appealing straightforward self marketing takes on a jagged edge.

Completely Novel claims that they can terminate and delete you for any reason without notice, and won’t enter into a dialogue or even tell you why.

This was a frighteningly common clause.

Blurb says that you’re held to their terms, even after your account closes.

I always reject the services of those who ask us to waive our rights. Laws for our protection are not created to then be waived!
