The Triskele Trail, Day 6 Interview on the Triskele Tour #Give@way

Triskele Books and Prism Book Tours presents...
A Week of Interviews and Giveaways!

Day 6. Triskele Trail: 

JJ Marsh discusses Triskele's first non-fiction release, Triskele Trail.

WHY did the idea of producing a book like Triskele Trail appeal to you?

We realised how far we’d come and in particular, how much we’d learnt from others sharing their experiences. It seemed only fair to pass on our own.

HOW would you sum up Triskele Trail in a one sentence synopsis?

Our roadmap to self-publishing, pot-holes, wrong turnings and all.

WHEN did the need for a book like this become apparent to you?

As more and more people asked advice on all aspects of indie publishing, we kept saying the same things, forwarding the same articles, repeating the same advice. Eventually, we decided to collect it all together in one place.

WHO do you think will benefit most from Triskele Trail, debut authors or established writers?

Both. Whether you’ve been writing for years or just starting, publishing your work is a completely new world, requiring a new set of skills. The book is a hand to hold as you navigate the roads along that journey.

WHICH chapter or segment of advice did you learn the most from while researching the book?

I think we’d all have different answers to that. So many of the chapters and tips written by the others are gold dust. Not just as eye-openers, but reminders of things I knew but had forgotten about. Putting the book together has been an inspiring experience, and totally reinforced my decision to go the independent route.

WHAT do you see as the next move from Triskele Books. You're certainly expanding your platform, so what's next?

Every six months, we stop and evaluate where we’re going. What’s working, what needs to be improved, and how best to move on. We’ll be planning the summer of 2014, writing new books and organising festival appearances; exploring formats, such as audiobooks, boxsets and translations; recruiting new writers for the end of next year; and finding more ways to connect books and readers.
