About Bev Robitai
Bev Robitai currently works as a writer, book coach, and freelance photographer enjoying year-round summer by swapping between Ohakune, New Zealand and Ontario, Canada. Recently, writing has been elbowed aside by a growing publishing business, prompting her to produce A Reassuring Guide to Self Publishing to answer all her clients' many questions. On her trusty laptop she fits in copy-editing, proof reading, layout and cover design between running two Airbnb listings (NZ) and swimming, kayaking and exploring (Canada).
Her two Sunstrike novels are post-apocalyptic realism - featuring a life when solar flares knock out the world's electricity supply for the foreseeable future. Society must come to terms with the loss of transport, communications, and the usual infrastructure for supplying food and water.
The theatre mystery novels Murder in the Second Row and Body on the Stage are set in a historic theatre where the author used to help run the place.
Eye for an Eye is a stand-alone thriller - the tale of a quest for justice, inspired by the actions of a real-life conman whose trail of victims made the author angry enough to imagine retribution - in some very inventive ways...

Once you have a polished, edited and proof read book file, going through the steps in this guide can put a print copy of your book in your hands in a couple of weeks and make it available worldwide in any format – hard copy or ebook.
It covers things you didn’t know you didn’t know, like the legal requirements of mandatory deposit in the country where you live whether it’s the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand or Canada.
