Self Publishing: Learning the Game (The Beginning)

    1. Really? That’s very cool. I do prefer paperbacks myself (I like to read in the tub where it’s quiet!) and there is just something pleasing about a paper book! I guess I need to keep poking around about the process of doing paperbacks as well. Do you have them printed, or do one of the print on demand type things? (If its not a bother)

      1. Oh yes, reading in the tub is one of the best places. The only real place where one can completely escape the interruptions of life. Unless your babies are little, I remember the days when mine would still find me there.
        Lol… 😉 I use print on demand, but still have the option to print copies at cost, just in case I want to try and sell them myself.

  1. I’m wavering a little. This was a little hopeful.
    I’ve been writing little tidbits and vignette’s for so long and I figured I should just throw some stories together and put them on amazon and see what happens.
    The marketing thing sounds daunting. I always worry I’m being annoying about it but I guess just depends.

    1. Yeah, I’ve vacillated a LOT on it. I’m not great with sales and I definitely don’t want to be pushy, but at the same time I LOVE to read. SO I just want to think of it as getting my writing out in front of others. Not to push them into buying it or whatever, but making a name for myself so that people WANT to read what I write.

      There are so many things that you can do even to just help your books not get lost in the shuffle and that’s what I’m aiming for at the moment. Putting myself out there is a bit daunting!

      1. That seems like it would be the hardest part, making sure your work stands out in front of all of the other stuff that’s out there.

        Good luck on it though. 🙂 I look forward to following more!
