My name’s Shaun. I write and self-publish detective novels under the name SP Edwards, and have been doing so for about a year or so.
Here’s my box-set, if you fancy reading some thrilling crime books that’re full of psychology, sex, violence and fiendishly immature humour:
The books are doing pretty well, and I’m not miles away from being a full-time novelist, a year and a bit after starting. As of writing this, if you head to the Kindle store in the UK and type in ‘crime’, you’ll see my first book Til Death on the front page.
During the course of doing this, though, I’ve encountered no end of crappy advice and dodgy products that haven’t delivered.
Because everyone knows that the self-publishing world has money behind it, there are a lot of people releasing crappy products or offering dodgy services.
So, I’ve decided to set this site up as a no-BS guide to the products I’ve used, the books I’ve read and the extra bits and pieces. Some of links on this site are affiliate links – all this means is that if you DO decide to pick up one of the products I review, the people that sell it will kickback a bit of the sale my way and – importantly! – it doesn’t cost you any more.
I’ll tell you which ones helped and which ones didn’t, and I’ll try to give you a real-eye view from the trenches. Every product, service, course or software package reviewed on this site is something I have bought and paid for using my own money. (I’ll include a shot of the software on MY desktop to verify this. I hope you like partial pictures of a puppy, because you’re going to see a lot of them.)
No bullshit here.
I hope you find the site useful in your own book-publishing journey.
