Released in April 2012 by Ruby Barnes, The New Author is a self-help guide to novel writing, social networks for authors and epublishing.
With foreword by Jim Williams, author of ten internationally published novels including Booker Prize nominated Scherzo.
The New Author is an excellent piece of writing, combining deceptive simplicity, lucidity and charm: a trick which in practice is very difficult.
Barnes explicitly warns against the trap that engagement at the required level can become obsessive and time consuming, and in a couple of nice vignettes he makes his point with wit and style. The New Author is a terrific companion for independent e-publishing and I recommend it.
There are at least three reasons why you should read this book:
1. you want to be an author;
2. you have already written a novel and want to publish it as an ebook;
3. you want to promote yourself as an author.
This isn't a short pamphlet with a few bright ideas. It's a 200 page book of 44,000 words. If you have any questions about the content of The New Author then just drop me a line using the contact form below.
