You have a lot of great ideas in your head that you would like to put down on paper? Then go one step further than writing them down in a diary or bullet journal. Become an author yourself and write your own book. How? Young author Marit gives you 7 crucial tips. In addition, publishing expert Verena tells you in her #passionstory why she loves books so much and how she helps authors to realise their future dreams.

Dream job publisher – Verena’s passion story

“Publishing is my passion because every book is always something new and a little adventure. Because you can never finish reading and you learn more and broaden your horizons with every project,” Verena (39 years old, from Munich) tells us about her passion.

Together with Julia (38 years old, from Munich), Verena has been running the Komplett-Media publishing company, which we introduced to you in our Komplett-Media Verlag, which we introduced to you in our last article, since 2016. “We never learned publishing in the true sense of the word,” she tells us. “But maybe that’s just our secret. Basically, I came to publishing a bit like the virgin to the child. It was a mixture of ‘being in the right place at the right time’, luck and the courage to just go for it. But a certain hands-on mentality and the ability to make decisions cannot be denied.

Working as a publisher – Challenge and opportunity at the same time

The challenge and opportunity in one is that there is no prescribed timetable for publishing. Every project is always new and different. You never know where the journey will take you. That’s mainly because you’re always dealing with people, so it’s also always personal work. Since we are a small but fine publishing company, we don’t know any long, cumbersome and bureaucratic decision-making processes. This chance to live out our passions for topics unrestrained is what we see as a great speciality,” Verena explains to us.

Enabling young female authors future dreams

“Writing is a creative and sometimes difficult process. Some of it is about destinies, formative experiences, stirring themes. As a publisher, you accompany the author on this path – from a white sheet of paper to the printed work that you proudly hold in your hands at the end. I negotiate with authors and agents and accompany a book from its idea to the finished printed product. Together with our team, I think about its layout, title and cover. To go down this path again and again is an absolute enrichment for one’s own life.

Verena’s #girlsforgirls expert tip

I can only encourage young girls to dare to do things that at first sight seem a bit big. Others also boil with hot water. When opportunities present themselves, go for it!
