Self-publishing author wins fans through web
AUTHOR Dan Holloway is reaching out to thousands of fans and even winning favour with some over top city authors Evelyn Waugh and Colin Dexter – all thanks to the internet.
The 39-year-old administrator is getting his thrillers into the hands of fans in print and electronic format via the World Wide Web.
Mr Holloway began writing aged eight and, since 2007, has written four books for the electronic Kindle device which are printed on demand.
Until now his biggest selling book notched up 300 sales – but last month The Company of Fellows sold 1,766 copies in the UK alone. This has seen it ranked 63rd with retailer giant Amazon, which has also ranked it as the 57th bestselling Kindle book.
Publishing on demand sees authors register an electronic copy of their work with a company which then prints and sends books when orders are received. Any author can upload books for the Kindle.
Mr Holloway said: “Self-publishing is all about independence and freedom to do what you want, when you want, to write in lots of different genres and once you have got the technical stuff set up it is very easy to do.
