Welcome to the new blog of Indlovu Publishing! This is where everything is new and exciting. Indlovu Publishing is a small team of brave, independent thinking lovers of books. We believe that everyone who has something they want to say should be able to do so. But we also know that most of us need help in some way. Not every writer can also be a brilliant editor, proofreader, cover designer, techno-savvy formatter AND still have enough of a life to write the books that just seem to pile up in our over-active imaginations.
That’s why a few of us sat around, drinking too much coffee, and brainstormed Indlovu Publishing into existence. We have put together a brilliant team of experienced writers, editors and designers. And we are here to help YOU get that long-dreamed of book into print. Indlovu is the Zulu word for elephant, an apt symbol for a South African Indie Publishing company. The elephant is the epitome of gentleness, wisdom and strength. And baby elephants are fun, silly and strong. Indlovu Publishing is still a baby pachyderm, but keep your eyes looking in the direction of this southern most tip of Africa, because all babies grow up sometime. We are going to fill the indie publishing landscape with our presence, and we invite you to join us.
Our aim is to provide a one-stop shopping experience for the indie writers (like you) who want to produce a good quality book, right from the cover design to the final release. Some critics say that self-publishing is delivering a tsunami of crap to the world, but we know that isn’t true. Never before in the history of publishing has there been such a thirst for information and entertainment. And while a lot of what’s out there is badly presented and pure sewerage, great writers are emerging from the flood, bearing readable and profitable books for little niche markets and for the masses.
Our aim is to help good writers deliver GREAT books. And our team are ready to partner with you as you embark on this very exciting and hopefully profitable venture. Regular posts will offer all the info you need, from how to edit your own work to writing a killer description for your book’s back cover. And everything between . . . We will be freely sharing everything we have learned over the years, and if you are a DIY indie writer, you will find everything you need RIGHT HERE!
So, stick around and buckle up. This is going to be a rip-roaring experience.
May the muse be with you!
The Indlovu Team
