What is DIY publishing?
DIY, or self-publishing is the publication of a book, magazine, pamphlet or any other media by its author, without the involvement of a publisher.The author is responsible for and in control of the entire process from beginning to end, including the content, design and distribution.

Constant Sleepless Nights

“Ive suffered from panic attacks at night since I was a child
A fear of someone breaking in
Being murdered in my sleep
I grew up in Bradford in the 70s when the Yorkshire ripper was about.
At that time there was a constant fear over the city.”
