The Sunday Salon (Feb. 23)

sundaysalon3This week, I’ve been working on research for my business, and attempting to find help for my website (which was successful, except that I realized I’m going to have to wait to hire someone, anyway).

Anyway. I’m really enjoying being a business owner! ;)

Here’s a quick couple of questions for any authors that are reading:

• How many books have you published?
• Have you self-published, or used a traditional publisher?
• Who did you publish through (even if self-published)?
• Would you recommend them? (if not, feel free to email me your answer!)
• Why?

(Thank you!) :D

On the reading side of things, I am finally digging into “While Beauty Slept” by Elizabeth Blackwell, and it’s awesome! Hard to put down!

I’m also reading & taking notes from “Duct Tape Marketing” by John Jantsch. It’s very good, so far!

Have a great week! Happy reading, everyone.

  1. How many books have you published?
    Two
    • Have you self-published, or used a traditional publisher?
    Self published
    • Who did you publish through (even if self-published)?
    Smashwords, Lulu and Amazon
    • Would you recommend them? (if not, feel free to email me your answer!)
    Yes
    • Why?
    Smashwords is easy and they distribute through all the major platforms for you. but you still need to publish separately through Amazon, unless you reach a target sales amount. I use Lulu to publish my paperbacks they are a subsidiary of Amazon so the paperbacks are also available through Amazon. Create Space also works this way too.

  2. I published one through Outskirts Press. It was expensive and I was disappointed with the photos and the editing was priced so high that I just did it myself which wasn’t the best idea.

  3. So far I have published two through Kindle and Createspace (and one of them through Smashwords), and I hope to have the third out this week. This has been a great approach for me, and I intend to continue with self-publishing through these venues, and perhaps also offering them through a webstore on my own site, for my upcoming publications.
