Splashdown Books changes business model

Splashdown Books changes business model

Grace Bridges, owner of Splashdown Books, recently changed the company’s business model from royalty share to an author co-op. Under the royalty share plan, books were published with no cash investment by the author. Now, authors will pay Bridges for the editing of their books, but will retain all rights and royalties while effectively self-publishing […]

Teacup Review: Avenir Eclectia

Teacup Review: Avenir Eclectia

It’s been a while since we sat down with a cup of tea and a book. But I just finished Avenir Eclectia, with which some of you may be familiar, so I thought I’d share my observations. It’s hard to review a book when its authors and editors are your friends. One always worries about […]

High Anxiety

High Anxiety

This very morning I was on the Skype phone with Grace Bridges, publisher of Splashdown Books, when she pressed the “Publish” button. As I told her, my heartbeat quartered.

Crazy-Hair Flies

Each day millions of people dream. Thousands more dream of writing. Less than that become obsessed with the dream and begin to write. Even less still finish the book. A fraction of a fraction sign a contract and a fraction of a fraction of that are successful. One must keep the proper prospective or risk […]

Aquasynthesis-Celebration

Monday dawned a new month and an exciting accomplishment for many of us here at NAF. Splashdown Books released it’s first ever anthology titled Aquasynthesis.  Paul, Kat and Keven each have three stories between the pages. And Robynn and I were allowed to try out our assistant editing skills. The beautiful cover was designed by […]

Splashdown + NAF = Cheesecake

A special note from Grace Bridges(aka Kiwi astronaut) . You may have noticed a trend among NAF authors to end up with Splashdown Books as their publisher. Perhaps you thought it was slightly odd. As indeed it could seem—one could very easily get to thinking it was an inside job, and wondering how much cheesecake […]
