I am in the final stages of producing my first book. It’s called “Invisible” and is a collection of writing about the Roma communities I have visited over the last five years (known as The Roma Series” on this blog but will contain extra material that has not been published here). It’s around 10,000 words and features over 50 of my own photographs.
We are in the middle of the “Decade for Roma Inclusion” so I am feeling that this is the right time for this work to be seen. My eventual aim would be to find a publisher or distributor of a “proper” book but first, it will be available as an ebook at an affordable price. It will be fully designed and and laid out professionally as I am lucky enough to be surrounded by talented, creative people.
If the book is a success, some of the profits will go to directly help the communities I have been involved with (of course).
I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has self-published their own book or anyone who has any ideas or contacts for publishers that might be interested in turning the ebook into a paper and ink book. I am aiming to have the book available for download by the end of the month.
Let me know what you think and what sort of price range you might be willing to pay for it. There is a lot of information out there about pricing ebooks but I would like to hear from real people who would be interested in buying it.
Thank you very much.
