KDP Client Spotlight – Kirsty McCourt

Have you thought about self-publishing books? Not sure where to start? I thought it might be useful to hear from people, like Kirsty McCourt, who have learned how to self-publish their own book. This new blog series lets my clients, who have self-published books, tell you what it has meant to them both personally and professionally. First up, it’s Kirsty McCourt from Kirsty’s Travelling Tearoom.

Tell us about yourself and your business.

I am Kirsty McCourt a caterer, who provides classic afternoon teas for events, individuals and special occasions. I also like to share recipes and videos on baking too.

What made you want to publish a book?

I wanted to share my love of Christmas and as a working mum the hacks I used to save both money and time. A book seemed like a really good way to pass on my experience to help not only my customers but anyone anywhere in the world.

How has it helped you/your business?

Yes it did really well. I sold lots of copies of my book. It even ended up being featured in the local newspaper. As it’s seasonal, it’s something that will continue to sell each holiday season.

Do you have any plans to do any more books in the future?

Oh yes, this experience has definitely made me want to do more. I am cooking up a few ideas and plan to do more in the future. Watch this space…
