Norman Price


A former soldier, senior lecturer and author of several mainstream textbooks, Norman Price has worked as an editor for many years.

Having lived and worked for several years in the Far East, his first novel 'Share a Crooked Rickshaw' is an exotic, action-packed thriller set in the 1960s when Hong Kong was a British Crown Colony. His second novel 'Chen' is a highly charged thriller set in Singapore.

His most recent non-fiction books are 'Editing Tips for Indie Authors' which made it to #1 in the Amazon Kindle Top 100 Paid list for Adult and Continuing Education books, and 'Key Writing Skills for Morons & Managers' which will prove helpful to all who wish to improve their written communication skills in the shortest possible time.

Norman now lives in the delightful UK county of Pembrokeshire, and is a keen windsurfer.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I began writing quite some time ago whilst working as a college lecturer. My first four textbooks were published and sold successfully by Harrap (2), Edward Arnold, and Heinemann Educational Books. This ignited my greater interest in writing and I founded my own editorial agency. Having helped many writers, of both fiction and non-fiction, to get their work published, I was nonetheless dismayed by the number of first-rate writers having their novels rejected by the major publishing houses - a situation wonderfully resolved by the advent of digital self-publishing. Authors are no longer reliant on others and can indeed earn greater rewards by taking this independent path.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book - Editing Tips for Indie Authors - is a helpful guide to self-editing for new authors on a limited budget and highlights the kind of mistakes and shortcomings I continually encounter as a professional editor.
