Self-Publishing Award winners

Writing Magazine editor Jonathan Telfer highlights the best self-published titles of the year

Choosing the winners of our annual Self-Published Book of the Year and Writers’ Circle Anthology Awards – organised by Writing Magazine and sponsored by the David St John Thomas Charitable Trust – is always a formidable challenge. Gone are the days of flimsy pamphlets, poor design and bad writing. Instead, the WM selfpublishers impress more each year with the levels of accomplishment shown.

Some would suit the lists of Big Five publishers. Others would be difficult to place but could do very well with the right marketing approach, an area in which the dedicated ‘authorpreneur’ can often outperform the limited resources of mainstream houses.

All of these shortlisted titles – and many other excellent publications that didn’t quite make the shortlist – display high production values, strong attention to detail and exemplary writing. Congratulations to you all!


An Unknown Woman, Jane Davis, £8.99

An Unknown Woman is the story of a secure and contented 46-year-old, Anita. A dramatic house fire kicks off the novel and a chain of events and revelations that calls into question everything Anita holds dear... and even her personal identity.
