Andrew is a local writer who has self-published his first book for children, The Unseen Chronicles of Amelia Black. I met him on Twitter (Yay Twitter!) and I recently asked if I could do an interview with him as I had been researching self-publishing for an essay I’m writing up at the minute.  He very kindly agreed to the chat, and here it is:

The Unseen Chronicles of Amelia Black is a book that you self-published. Could you say a few words about the book?

Basically it’s an adventure story, in the spirit of classic stories and films I grew up with like Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz/Return to Oz, Labyrinth, and countless other Disney films etc. with a bit of a steampunk, comic book hero twist to it.

Right up my street then! There’s a big debate about traditional publishing Vs self-publishing these days. Why did you…
