Weekly Write-Up: 12th February 2020


Welcome to the SPF Weekly Write-Up, where each Wednesday we collect together the self-publishing news of the week so you don’t have to.

This week: Sony snaps up SP books from Wattpad, Bookouture scoops up Rachel Abbott’s new book, and how to order SPF Merch in “other territories”.

Sony Snaps Up Self-Publishing Books for TV

Not content to let Netflix have all the fun, Sony has ventured into the wilderness of Wattpatt to source new material for its television shows. Jessica Cunsolo’s “She’s With Me” and H.J. Nelson’s “The Last She” are both being developed by Sony Pictures Television, and both have already been incredibly successful on the self-publishing platform ¬– no doubt attracting Sony’s attention.

If you want to learn more about the two productions, plus other self-publishing adaptations from Wattpad, you can find the original article here.

Bookouture Scoops Up Rachel Abbott’s New Book

Rachel Abbott is one of the most successful self-published authors on Amazon, and continues to self-publish her DCI Tom Douglas series. However, Bookouture will be publishing the print, ebook and audio version of her latest psychological thriller, “The Murder Game”, in the US and Canada.

Whatever route leads to the most readers and revenue! To read more about the deal, read the original article here.

SPF Merch in Other Territories

Following on from our news the other week that the Self Publishing Formula and Self Publishing Show now have merch available (t-shirts and hoodies!), some people have noted that it isn’t possible to have the items delivered to certain countries/ territories.
If you find it is unavailable where you live, send an email to [email protected] with what you’re after (size, colour etc). We can process it manually for a small extra postage charge.
We’ll have a separate store for out of territory purchases soon, but for now we’ll do it manually.
