The concept of Buy the Book is an absolutely brilliant idea by Rachel. I immediately jumped at the opportunity to join the site and I have found Rachel  to be thoroughly professional and a pleasure to deal with.

Becoming a member is one of the highlights of  my author journey so far. It has allowed me to sell into the Irish and International market while maintaining the royalties of my book. It is a wonderful supportive community of Irish self published authors. Working together, we can achieve so much more than going it alone.
