"Your Mum is not well at all...she is having an emergency brain scan". This was the email my Dad had sent to me desperately trying to get in touch with me. I was oblivious and happily travelling in West Africa with no phone or computer to be contacted on. As you can imagine, Internet cafes haven't yet reached Guinea Bissau or Côte d'Ivoire. When we reached Accra in Ghana, a lovely couple I had met, Lynn and David who lived in the Blue Mountains in Australia, kindly let me borrow their computer to check my inbox.
There is a lot of confusion online about what hybrid publishing actually is and we’d like to help clear a few things up, as some bloggers and reviewers have written about how publishing is ‘black and white’, rather than a spectrum. This sometimes turns authors away from hybrid publishers, like ourselves, which means that some books might not get published, and great reads unfortunately slip through the cracks.
