Jacqueline Church Simonds – To Self-Publish or Not to Self-Publish

On October 4th, 2007 Victor Volkman and Irene Watson spoke with author and publisher Jacqueline Church Simonds. She is the co-owner of Beagle Bay, Inc., publishers of women’s adventure fiction, travel guides and self-help books. Jacqueline helped us navigate the dangerous waters of self-publishing including such tough topics as:

  • Do you have the skills needed or drive to acquire them?
  • Do you have the money to do justice to the book?
  • Do you have the temperament given the long odds of breaking even?
  • Who can help me?
  • Jacqueline’s company also offers small press distribution and book packaging services through their imprint of Creative Minds. She is the author of Captain Mary, Buccaneer, a pirate novel for adults, which was her first novel and the genesis of her company. She is also the creator of the New Self-Publisher’s FAQ and Jacqueline is one of the co-moderators of the SPAN Self-Publishing Discussion List otherwise known as Self-Publishing@Yahoo Groups.com Captain Mary, Buccaneer
