BewleyBooks+ is creating inspirational books by new writers

The idea behind Patreon is that you choose to support a creator financially in return for each piece of valuable content they create for you. In my case, it's books, blogs, vlogs, pods on how to write, publish and promote your books.

It's a brilliant idea that is helping people like me, and the people I help, bring more value to the world by making it easy on the pocket for all those involved - the supporters and the supported.  

How does it work
Every day I publish an article and every month I produce videos to the BewleyBooks channel, as well as podcasts.

In return for this content, you pay the monthly fee of your choice to contribute to the content I produce, which you can see on this page.

What happens to your money
Your support investment is ploughed into producing free YouTube videos and podcast episodes for the community of writers and artists who are on a mission to change the world for the better.

Of course, time and resources cost money. Your patronage allows me to focus on making the most valuable content for you.

Your investment also helps me to purchase better equipment and replace old or broken equipment.  This allows me to produce higher-quality work and it enables me to free up some of my time to do more stuff to help others. 

About BewleyBooks
BewleyBooks was set up because of a dream I had.  After thirty plus years in the news media, marketing and publishing environments, I figured I could put those skills to work for other authors.  BeweyBooks helps authors (new and established) to write, publish and promote their work to a wider audience - with the author incurring any payments.  I believe writers are the backbone of society - without them, we wouldn't get the information and creative entertainment we have come to rely on so much.  

Why do I need a Patreon?
Publishing and promoting books is a costly business.  Most of the work (so far) has been funded out of my own pocket.  There's also the time commitment that needs to be addressed too - actually, that's the biggest issue I face while working as a counsellor and as a freelance writer and publisher.

Though time and funds are the biggest issues, luckily (and though I say it myself!), when it comes to ideas and the determination to fulfil those ideas, I have the energy levels of someone 20 years my junior.  I can't stop writing.  Books, blogs, vlogs and pods.  I'm thrilled and so very grateful that I have the means and the ability to do it.

When I set-up BewleyBooks (mid-2017), I had three big 'wants'.  They were:

  1. I wanted it to be more than just a publisher of books
  2. I wanted writers to get what they were worth (they are the creators anyway), and 
  3. I wanted it to carve a specific niche out in the book world

To stick with these 'wants', BewleyBooks: 

  • Publishes books by authors who aspire to inspire the world to change for the better
  • Signs-up authors for free - only a nominal sum (for admin and processing) is generated from each book sold

Why do I need your help?
So far, BewleyBooks has released over a dozen books, mostly my own but, increasingly, other authors are seeking out my help.  The BewleyBooks platform helps writers promote their work through a variety of social media avenues and physical world outlets (chiefly supporting the work of independent bookstores).  

Here's the deal-breaker: doing all of this work requires my attention.  I need to focus, I need to have space and time to reflect.  I don't have a permanent home, in fact, I sleep on my parents' couch most of the time and live in hotels and B&Bs, while travelling around the country where I am needed.

As I travel, I meet lots of different people from all walks of life and can end up in some fascinating places I never thought existed.  The kinds of experiences I have while doing this are exciting adventures I cannot help to put into my own stories.

And, yes, there comes a time when you need to get things organised.  You need to find a space of your own and you need to put down a couple of roots - particularly if you're going to make it your mission to help others make their dreams come true.

Why become a Patron of BewleyBooks?
Most of the behind-the-scenes work in publishing a book can be cost-effective when it's done by little old me on my PC and laptop.  But, to produce a good book with decent formatting, minimal errors and wrap it all up in a brilliant and spellbinding cover - suffice to say that needs a wee bitty more of an investment.  So I've been employing other professional people to do the important work. 

Each book published eats into my bank balance at around £6k-£8k - from start to finish.  That's not including all the other expenses listed below.  Here's a general idea of where the funds go:

  • Editorial, proofreading, typesetting, copy editing, publishing services 
  • Illustrators and book cover designer fees
  • Purchasing ISBNs, scan-line, formatting and preparing proofs for digital and print books
  • Worldwide registration for distribution
  • Book reviews, preparation of press releases and media kits, marketing materials, editorial coverage online and offline, blog posts, promotional material
  • Video and podcast production, purchase of videos and images
  • Attendance at book fairs for promotional purposes
  • Paid advertising campaigns
  • Purchase of books for authors promotional purposes
  • Office administration
  • Utility bills (rent, electricity, infrastructure, maintenance, stationery, internet provider, telephone bills, petrol, vehicle maintenance, hospitality and hosting guests)
  • IT & Technology Support
  • Legal and accountancy fees
  • Travel expenses and meals
  • Identifying new authors and launching new marketing projects and PR initiatives
  • Supporting an author's ideas
  • Maintenance and upgrades of basic facilities
  • Printing marketing materials and other consumables
  • Post & distribution fees
  • Membership to professional organisations 
  • and a whole host of other things that go on in the background

Publishing with a Purpose
Because my platform has a purpose, aspiring to inspire, my intent is to encourage as many authors as possible to use it.  With BewleyBooks I am able to promote and publicise an author's work, their books, services, articles, blog posts, and interview them with podcasts as well as share content - mostly at no cost to the author. 

BewleyBooks gets your Patronage, what do you get?
The funds you put into our coffers pay for the list of services (above).  These all go into producing a book of good quality.  I've designed the Tiers (listed on the right) to be easy on your pocket - but valuable and content-rich with most of it being delivered directly to your inbox.  As you'll see, the more you invest as a Patron the more you'll get back in the physical world too.

Support BewleyBooks by investing 
When you support BewleyBooks, you will get as much of what is produced and published as you wish.  Remember, as a Patron of the Arts (writing and recording is an art), you contribute inspirational works to the world and, hopefully, with your help, the world can change a little for the better.

Once again, thank you for visiting.
