Self-publishing workshops in Huntingdon/Cambs area

Calling all new writers in the Cambridge/Huntingdon/Peterborough/Beds/Northants area, who are interested in self-publishing but don't know how to go about it!

I'm delighted to introduce Mary Matthews, also known as author Georgia Rose, who has produced three highly acclaimed self-published books, all of which are presented to a professional standard in both ebook and paperback.   She has lots of experience in administration and customer service and has now started a company, Three Shires Publishing, to help other writers attain their goalsI'll hand over to Mary so she can tell you all about it:

"There are three stages in getting your book into the hands of a reader ~ writing, publishing and marketing. The writing and marketing are by far the hardest, and the areas where money should be spent ~ but the actual physical act of publishing your book is something you can do yourself.  I've put together a workshop to teach writers the practical steps needed to do this, and save some money in the process."

"Since publishing my own books I have had many conversations with people who have already written books which are languishing on hard drives or who are keen to write something but lack the knowledge to know what to do next. My workshops can help with this.

There are other self-publishing workshops out there but mine differ in that they are not online but face-to-face. I do realise that I’m therefore not going to be conquering the world of self-publishing with this innovation but that’s not what I’m about. I like the personal approach and being able to help people on an individual basis."

Satisfied customers at the last Three Shires Workshop


  1. Pity you're so far away!

  2. Hi Jo, I don't know where you are but I'm sorry if I'm at too much of a distance! I am looking forward to doing the first workshop and really need to get the next one up on the site so as always plenty to do. Thanks so much for reading and commenting :-)

  3. Hi Terry and Mary - what a great opportunity ... and who knows I may just take you up on the idea - but, sadly, not for a while yet. Still it's good to know about - all the very best with the new venture .. cheers Hilary

    1. Thanks for the comment Hilary and do keep in touch. If you are ever interested I'd love to meet you :-)

  4. Good luck! Maybe you might be able to set up a SKype/conference thing sometime, so those of us who don't live in the vicinity could contribute

    1. It's a fabulous idea to get people to lead on a section via some technological wizardry Carol and I shall bear that in mind once I have mastered the complications of the laptop/projector/screen combo :-)

  5. I'm definitely too far away, which is a shame as I'd love to join one. I've been self publishing for years, but it's always useful to learn from someone else who is possibly more experienced and probably more professional! Maybe branch out into webinars one day, Georgia :)

  6. I'm not sure I am either of those things Val - haha! But thank you and I appreciate the interest. I find you learn something new everyday plus it's a constantly changing industry anyway :-)
