of rejection? Why not publish yourself?
Imagine that you could decide when to publish and, in a few short months, have a quality printed book in your readers' hands - available through bookstores. Who wouldn't want that?
That's what a few enterprising souls thought in the late 1990s, when they realized the potential of digital printing and began offering print on-demand book publishing services directly to authors.
The past few years have seen an explosion of companies offering these kinds of services. Most authors are just beginning to hear about this new opportunity. Until now, there has been no independent author's guide to the POD phenomenon.
21st Century Publishing answers the questions:
-What is Print On-Demand Book Publishing?
-Who should use this new publishing option (and who shouldn't)?
-What do all those contract clauses really mean?
-What should I expect from a POD publishing company?
and many, many more.
With a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section, a POD glossary, and a list of service providers, this book is a MUST for anyone considering self-publishing.
...balanced information about POD is rare online (which is why I linked to your excellent series of articles)...
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your articles about print-on-demand publishing! They are concise, complete, unbiased and easy to understand.
What A Terrific Discovery! I discovered you a few days ago ... visited your site, subscribed to your letter, and have been completely delighted ever since. I just wanted you to know that your observations and analyses are right on target, as I see it, and I intend to rely on you for input and stimulation henceforth as I bravely push forward into the wonderful world of Internet publishing.
I appreciated your direct approach and candidness when speaking about this relatively new industry.
Julie has made a commitment to informing writers of their options and answering questions regarding the many obstacles we face when launching our own works. Her endeavors have created a website that is not only user friendly, but an important tool every writer should often refer to...
What a well written piece in such understandable language.
If anyone knows her stuff about self-publishing, it is you - a genuine pioneer in the genre.
I've just gone through your POD articles and have found them very useful.
Thanks for the education on PODs.
