After writing and co-writing more than 260 children’s non-fiction books, two graphic novels and a couple of adult non-fiction books over the past 34 years, Nibwebber Ian Graham has just produced his first fiction. It’s a book of five murder whodunit short stories called ‘Death Duties’.
Without any track record in fiction, Ian didn’t relish the prospect of his manuscript languishing on a publisher’s slush pile for a year or more, so he published the book himself. It’s available from Amazon as a paperback and an ebook. First reactions from readers have been very positive.
Ian said, ‘This is the first time I have published one of my own books. The learning curve was quite steep and I made a lot of mistakes along the way, but I really enjoyed being in control of everything – from writing and editing to design, layout, typography and pricing. The big plus was that the process was entirely stress-free. I will certainly do this again.’
