Do you want to Create a real book?
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas. Mine was spent with family and friends which for me is the best way.
One of my friends uses the Internet in a different way to make her income. Lorina Stephens has been a writer and artist for many years. She has published several "hard" books through mainstream publishers. From conversations with her she has had numerous road blocks and hassles with publishing community.
She decided to take a different route with her last book "Recipes of a Dumb House Wife". The title is tongue in cheek as she is a brilliant lady and she goes on to explain the title in the book. I have the book and have enjoyed many wonderful recipes.
But what is the difference? This is published through a print on demand printer. This is a small publishing/printing house that will print very small runs of books once they have all your information. This means that you can create a specialised publication at very little cost and have it printed in a book format. With small additional costs the company will provide it to the larger book stores.
For costs we are talking in the neighborhood of a couple hundred dollars investment for a far greater return.
So Lorina is providing a hard product, that is advertised on her website as well as through her publisher/printer. She did the original work of creating the recipes and writing the book. She also packages and ships from her office, but all the print work is done by her print on demand company. It is a great system. She will soon be releasing a new book too!
Graciously Lorina agreed to write an article for my website. You can read in her own words what she discovered about Print on Demand Revolution.
