What If I Want To Self Publish Books?

Posted on 02/13/2013 Evan Swensen

If you want to self publish books right now this very minute and take it to market, there are many companies now who will be happy to take your money.

We do encourage you to keep our contact information close by though, as several of our clients have come to us after such an experience, finding that indeed their book would be printed, and sometimes at great expense, but few if any book signings were available to the author via this publisher, and that distribution was sketchy.

Some authors have found that it was practically impossible to get a call or an email returned from such a publisher, and that even ordering books wasn’t the simple experience it should be. As for getting any book royalty information, we have had authors tell us they hadn’t gotten a royalty statement for two or more years.

Some authors do put books together for limited distribution, such as for business or for their families. We are happy to assist you if you do not intend to sell your work, even if you want to print only one copy of your book, or enough for your board of directors, or 300 for the family reunion.

We are always happy to assist you in your project to self publish books for limited distribution.

We do not believe a book you intend to market should be rushed into publication, simply to publish. We also recommend a limited first printing, to test the book.

We are looking for authors who are committed to their books, and committed to book signings and other book events; and, to working with social media and other ways that get their books out to their readers.

Our authors who are active in selling their books usually have the most fun with their books and their readers.

And that’s what we like to see.

Keep in touch.
