Case Study: Gordon Bloor

8 February, 2015 in News

Gordon Bloor writes under the pseudony Douglas Westcott and self-published his first novel, Go Swift and Far, with CPI.

“CPI came by recommendation from another self-publishing author and also had the great advantage of being local at Chippenham, I used them for the whole production purpose, including proof-reading and e-book conversion. I had a separate editorial team,” Bloor explains. “I needed someone I could trust and to show me how to produce the books, I needed a printer that was honest, helpful, reliable, experienced and capable of producing a first-class quality product at the most economic price.

“Sales of the book over the past 15 months (including the e-book edition) now exceed 5,000 and I am about to go to a fourth edition, ready for the Bath tourist market in 2015.”
