NLP Celebrates 14th Anniversary

pexels-photo.jpgWell, we blinked and 14 years went by since the inception of New Line Press.

February 19th, 2018 marks our 14th year of being in business and what a ride it’s been. To say that publishing has changed would be the understatement of the decade! I’ve seen publishing go from print books to ebooks and a longing for the nostalgia of print books. Mercy.

When we started 14 years ago, a writer friend (later became one of our authors) came to me and said, “I know an author who is selling her books in PDF version on CD’s.” It was a concept that was so foreign to me at that time. I didn’t think grab the concept of selling books on CD’s – but digitally, hell yes! When this thing called Kindle came out, the reading world as we knew it would never be the same. I hopped on board and never looked back. NLP was one of the earliest independent presses on Kindle, in fact, one of our authors gave a demonstration at the local library explaining what a Kindle was to the public!

On behalf of Roberta and the NLP team and all of the people over the years who have worked for us and with us, including out amazing authors past and present, and all of our customers – a huge thank you!!

Amazon Author Central

Some thoughts from Motivational Exponent and Bestselling Author Catherine Burr about Amazon Author Central and what you SHOULD be doing but probably aren’t.

So I had to get a new bio pic for my other business and while doing so actually ended up with photos that I thought apropos for my writing and publishing side, so updated my Author Central page on Amazon. By the way, how often do you update your Amazon Author Central page? You should keep it updated, refreshed, post photos of yourself! Hoppefully professional ones but if not, ones that gives readers an idea of YOU! Make sure you have your website linked as it posts your blog posts updates to your page. And I bet you didn’t know there are Author Central pages for not just the US site but for all the other countries where books are sold! Make sure you have pages on all the sites! It’s work but it’s part of marketing and promotion that authors should already be doing. It’s free and it’s worthwhile!…
