Welcome to Dark Roast Publishing
A guide for each stage of publishing your book
Dark Roast Publishing is an independent publishing company created for the works of thriller author Darren Alexander. But, we’ve evolved into more than that.
We believe in supporting indie authors as much as we can. Self-publishing can be an intimidating, confusing, and expensive process. Throughout the writing and publishing process of Darren’s first book, Secret Rescue, we made several mistakes, but learned a lot.
We dove head first into the murky waters of the publishing industry and were quickly overwhelmed by the process. We found useful information from other sites and figured out how to correct mistakes and avoid future ones. But, what helped more than anything, were online mentors. Online mentors are people you follow, who probably have no idea you even exist, but they put their experience out for all to see anyway. Why do they do it? Because they were once struggling with their own careers.
Now it’s time for us to pay it forward. Several years of research and continuing education as well as following and sometimes corresponding with online mentors has allowed us the opportunity to help others. By doing so, we hope to not only help you, but to improve ourselves. One of the fastest ways to learn is to teach.
We’ve acquired the skills and resources to help you write, publish, and market your own work. Everything from writing to formatting to cover design to marketing, we have information and resources on our Author Tools page and Blog that can help. This information will always be available to you at no cost. We will be adding a consultation service in 2017 to help those with specific needs.
