Adelaide, Australia (PressExposure) December 24, 2009 -- As a published author himself Mr Bearly knows how difficult it can be to take that big step and put yourself on the line. That is quite apart from the problems 95% of new authors have in actually finding a publisher.
Many resort to self publishing which can be mentally, physically and financially draining if you want to publish in print. And then you discover that you need to do the hard slog of promotion before you'll get any books in a retail outlet.
If you decide to go the cheaper route and publish on the internet you need to set up a web site, a host, get your domain name sorted, set up the ecommerce, set up the delivery of your book, handle any customer refunds and then you learn that you need to do a lot of promotion to sell any copies of your pride and joy.
It all seemed way too hard for Mr Bearly when he began down this path several years ago. Having done all the hard work he discovered that there were many others who were giving up long before they got published or sold any books.
This prompted him to create Bearly Books as a complete turnkey solution for the aspiring author.
In addition he wanted to make sure they could turn a profit quickly so he came up with a profit sharing arrangement which beats the stuffing out of any agreement you'll ever sign with a mainstream publisher.
Mr Bearly doesn't want to be an editor so he has structured the site in such a way that you, the author, can submit your book and have the only people who actually matter, the readers, review it for you. You can discuss your book with them, make any changes you think you would like and re-submit for all the readers to update their copy.
This feedback loop allows you to improve your writing much faster than having an editor keep sending your book back or just plain rejecting it.
Bearly books is the first site that allows the authors to mix with authors and authors to mix with readers.
