Time for Change!


As Famous Five Plus approaches its 2nd Birthday, here at the Headquarters a few changes are being made to ensure the group is more dynamic and stronger.

During the two years FFP has been in existence, a number of new and up and coming authors have passed through the Group, all bringing their sparkling personality and great reads. Many of these authors are now well established and top sellers, but it is time for change. FFP needs to reflect what is important for its members. The publishing world is changing for all authors and especially Indie Authors. Opportunities for Indie Authors have never been so good and as more and more writers take this route, pressure on authors has increased. These days it is not just enough to produce a professionally written and presented book that would rival any top mainstream author, but marketing and promoting are paramount if you are to succeed. It’s a daunting task to do it alone, but building contacts, joining support groups and supporting other authors will help.

The changes to Famous Five Plus will reflect the importance of support and the professionalism of Indie Authors.  The Group will be much smaller and focused on supporting and being supported. It will consist of authors who have a vast experience of marketing their publications and have a record of supporting others. Any author will tell you that promoting eats into valuable writing time, but it must be done. Changes always come with a heartbeat of doubt, but to move forward we have to move with the times. A person once said, ‘If you don’t bend with the wind, you will break!’ FFP has not broken or gone with the wind, it needs to adapt and to be stronger. So please continue to visit our fabby web site and keep a check on what we are doing, believe you me we are keeping busy for you.

Thank you for visiting FFP and please come back soon!

  4. To continue with Francine's theme, good things come in small packages. And it's great to be a part of this team for many reasons, not the least of which is as Pauline said: to go at this alone is a daunting task. Our group of professionals will work well together.

  7. I agree. Small is beautiful and more manageable. We'll be fitter, hungrier and more effective as a small team. Thank you for including me. I hope I can rise to the challenge.
