Crime author Pauline Rowson talks to Expats Radio about publishing, e books and authors
In an interview on Expats Radio author of the DI Andy Horton series of Solent based marine mysteries, I reveal my thoughts about the publishing industry, getting published, authors advances and the rise of e books.
Talking to Peter Anstis, I discuss how the publishing industry has changed in recent years and how it is continuing to go through a seismic shift with the growth of e books. I also talk about how the rise of e books sales are affecting authors and how it is more important now more than ever before that authors need to market themselves in order to be found amongst the thousands of books published every year.
The author of ten crime novels, eight in the DI Horton series and two stand alone thrillers, my first crime novel was published in 2006. Before then I had written and had published twelve marketing and communication books and had run my own successful marketing and training company . My crime novels are published by Severn House both in the UK and the USA and have been translated into several languages including Chinese where the Horton series is to be published in 2013.
