Guest Post #Indieauthor Neveah Hor #YA #fantasyromance

I wrote my first novel when I was 12, but I wasn’t brave enough to self publish until I was 38. So I was very impressed when a young author contacted me about writing a guest post for my blog. It’s great to encourage the younger generations to follow their dreams, so today I’m very pleased to welcome 13 year old author, Neveah Hor. Her debut, Love Machine, was published in February 2020.

Why I chose self publishing

Hello! I’m Neveah and I’m so honoured to be able to guest post on this blog. I’m a self-published thirteen-year-old author of my debut novel titled Love Machine. This novel is a young adult romantic fantasy. I would like to share with you on why I chose self-publishing over traditional publishing. Of course, there are many pros and cons of self-publishing so be sure to read on and explore the reasons behind my choice of publishing.
Firstly, self-publishing allows me to have the freedom to title my book and choose a cover
design. Traditional publishing does not allow you to have the freedom to choose your cover
design and your book title.
Secondly, it’s fast and convenient. Just after a few clicks, you can easily publish a book through self-publishing. Traditional publishing can take months and years. You either get a rejection letter or good news.
Thirdly, I get to market the book by myself and I enjoy connecting with my readers personally. If you traditional publish, then most of the marketing work will be done for you. It might be great news to some people but to me, I like to reach out and communicate with my readers personally. I don’t need to be a bestselling author and I don’t wish to be more superior than others. I want to be an author with a real passion for writing.
Last but not least, royalties. Self-published authors need money to feed themselves with food. I would say that royalties is not really the main point for my self-publishing choice but it’s just another benefit. Self-publishing allows you to get more royalties than if you traditionally publish.
That’s really all I have for you today.
Thanks for reading!
Neveah

INTERVIEW


Hi, Suzanne! First of all, Thank you for letting me be a part of your blog tour and this is a wonderful opportunity!

I’m really pleased you’ve agreed to join The Lost Sentinel’s blog tour.

First question! Can you tell us why did you want to be a fantasy author and how did you become one?

I’ve always wanted to be an author, I just didn’t know what I wanted to write until I read my first fantasy novel at the age of 17. The genre encompasses everything I love in fiction, plus I get to create whole worlds, magic systems, races of people and their histories.

To get to the stage I felt good enough to self-publish took many years of learning my craft. I have completed online courses, attended evening creative writing classes, I’ve used critique services and made friends with fellow writers who are now my…
