About Up & Up
I created Up & Up Media originally as a means to publish my own stories. I had created a novel of my own, and I wanted to release it independently.
Problem was, I learned the ways of the indie artist young - and in a whole different industry! At just thirteen I had already started to make my mark in the music scene of Melbourne in a number of garage bands, and thus by the time I reached adulthood, a strange yet powerful business model was ingrained into my core - one that is tried, tested and true, yet flies in the face of the traditional route to becoming a published author. That is to say: the business model of the indie punk record label.
That's just what I aim to do here at Up & Up - be the indie punk label of publishing for the garage bands of novel writing.
I hope that one day world famous authors will reminisce about their grassroots beginnings, and Up & Up Media will come warmly into their mind.
