From the editor…
As of the end of May, my time as the editor of the Self-Publishing Magazine is coming to an end. Thank you all for getting in touch over the last year. I’ve loved hearing from so many of you and it’s been fantastic to be able to share such high quality submissions from indie authors and other industry professionals.
I’m very excited to announce my replacement, Jasmin Elliott. She has a sound background in book marketing (having worked with both local and national media, marketing Matador books for over three years). As well as this, she has already contributed articles for the site and devised some of our editorial concepts, including our first ever ‘Author Life’ feature, which proved very popular.
Jasmin has so many exciting ideas lined up for the site in the coming months; we wish her all the very best with this. Keep checking in to see all of the changes, and join us on social media to wish her luck!
Wishing you luck with your self-publishing projects.

This is the latest ebook in the Autobiography of an Assassin series, but can also be read as a stand-alone.
This is a man who has no fears, no qualms or inhibitions about what he does – a ruthless predator. He had compassion, once. He was capable of deep caring… love, even. For a while, the killer in him was subdued, tamed and contained.
But when tragedy strikes a psychopathic killer such as Martin, his method of coping with grief is extreme. Deprived of the love and normality that he had enjoyed and treasured, he returns back to type.
Written as an autobiography, in this fourth book of the series, we see the world through a psychopath’s eyes.
