How The Hell Did I Get HereWanting to go down the self-publishing road but having no clue where to start, I was pointed in the direction of Ian Andrew and Book Reality.

From our first chat on the phone to the publication of my book, I felt completely at ease with Ian, he was such a pleasure to work with. The whole process was made so much easier with his help as he took away the stress and the drama associated with trying to come to grips with self-publishing, whilst keeping me informed and part of the process throughout.

I’d highly recommend Ian and Book Reality to anyone who has a completed manuscript but really doesn’t know where to go from there.

How The Hell Did I Get Here

Secrets From NorwayI first met Ian at a ‘Meet the Authors’ evening at a local book shop in Busselton. I told him that I had a book (my fifth) ‘Secrets from Norway’ almost ready for publication and that I was seeking to break with my then current ‘Assisted Publishing’ organisation. At a later meeting he explained how he and BookReality would be able to help me and we drew up a pro-forma contract. Everything he promised to do in that contract was delivered in Spades and I am totally delighted. Seamlessly, to me, the book was lightly edited, formatted and covers illustrated. Accounts were set up for me for printers, on-line print-on-demand sources such as Amazon and ebooks. Everything was explained thoroughly and reviews solicited; nothing seemed too much trouble. We have some commonality in backgrounds so a personal relationship was easily established. Sales? Well its tough but not discouraging – but that’s not why I write. My next book – already well along – will I hope also be handled by Ian.

Secrets From Norway

frenzship cover“As an already published author, I was looking to have more control over the publication and marketing process with my second book.

I was fortunate enough to meet Ian Andrew of the Book Reality Experience when we both speaking at a writers’ conference. We hit it off and I am very pleased that I chose Ian’s company to publish my second novel, frenzship. I have been delighted with the service which can be end-to-end covering the whole publication, registration and marketing process or just assistance with various aspects of the process if you want to do more yourself.

Ian has been incredibly helpful, patient and supportive through the process. No question is too stupid – not even mine, and no level of indecision too frustrating for him, not even mine. Ian has a great sense of humour, which is important as you navigate the twists and turns of publishing.

I unreservedly commend Ian Andrew and the Book Reality Experience to anyone looking for an independent publishing facilitator.”

Ian is trustworthy, supportive and meticulous in every detail. Best of all, he is a competent writer with a love of language and excellent judgment in selecting relevant material. ”

I knew it would be well read if only I could get it to market. Now, through Book Reality, my novel is available for sale globally through Amazon. My book, out there for all to read; it really is a dream come true.

I found Ian Andrew at Book Reality to be thoroughly professional and exceptionally knowledgeable in all facets of book publication. An author himself, he understood the feelings writers have about their work and their hopes and dreams – I would recommend this business to anyone.”

It was a great idea but I had no clue where to start and the thought was quite daunting. I was recommended to contact Ian at Book Reality by another local author and it was the best thing I did! I found Ian to not only be very professional and excellent at his work, but also extremely generous with his time and helpful in every way possible! He went above and beyond to help my dream come true and I am now at the end stages of publishing my book thanks to him! After reading and editing, Ian also generously donated his fee to a charity very important to my family’s circumstances. He spent countless hours talking with and advising me, so I will be recommending Book Reality to everyone I know!”

I feel spoiled rotten by your service!”

A Belfast Tale

“I first met Ian Andrew when I attended his self-publishing workshop. He presented the session with a mix of knowledge, humour, humility and the ability to present information in an interesting manner. I went away with a renewed passion for writing, and from there began to revisit the children’s stories I had written years ago. At the time I was also undertaking a project close to my heart, writing my father’s life story. But I didn’t know where to start with the self-publishing process, so I contacted Ian for some more information and assistance. Ian has always responded in a timely manner; willing to help me in whatever way he can. I have found his assistance invaluable, and appreciate his willingness to meet with me or correspond by email when I have needed extra help. I cannot express my gratitude enough; it is because of Ian’s kind nature and approachability that I felt I could turn to him for guidance. Because of him I am now inspired to realise my childhood dream of becoming a writer, to have my name on bookshelves like he has done. For these reasons, I have no hesitation in recommending Ian to anyone who is as passionate about writing as he is!”
