About Us

The Word Pool is  a web design business that specialises in creating websites for authors and others in the book trade. We run this site to try to help authors who are just getting started as well as more experienced ones who are thinking of trying self-publishing for the first time. 

Many of the articles on this site have been written by Diana Kimpton who has written more than 40 books since she first became a professional author in 1990. Most of her books have been traditionally pulblished,  but she switched to self publishing a few years ago and really enjoys it. . You can find out more about her books on her website.
