Short Description

Andy Dale Writes Limited, was formed a month ago following the success of my first novel and the anticipated rapid sales of my second novel (launching 15th July 2015).

Second novel is a funny fictional take on Aston Villa's League Title winning 1980/81 season. Advanced orders for this book are high. Andy Dale writes Limited publish the books themselves to reduce costs. Looking for larger print runs to meet demands and lower cost per book.

Executive Summary

Let me tell you a bit about me and my books. As well as being a complete Villa nut I am a writer of fictional comedy books usually set in the 1980?s. My first novel 'First Years - Piranhas in the Bedroom' sold over 25,000 copies. My second novel, being released on 15th July, is 'Just 14'. The story of a 14 year old boy following his beloved Aston Villa during the amazing 1980/81. It is a similar style to Nick Hornsby?s ?Fever Pitch?. Fictional yet based on the real football events. Every Villa game and goal of that season are mentioned in the story.

With Social Media (and a planned Book Launch including Villa legends Gary Shaw and Tony Morley) interest and advance orders for 'Just 14' is very high. For speed and to maximise profits I Self Publish. I am looking to sell direct to book shops (as well as Villa Shop) so need to purchase a high quantity of books to bring my costs, per book, below 3gbp.

There is also a series of Children's books I have written 'King Derek and the Wonder Wizards' that with the right marketing budget will I believe be very good sellers.
