What are the pro’s of using alternate publishing? You have more control and more profit.

What are the cons? You have more work to do.

If you independently publish, you will have to develop business skills to be successful.

Print on demand (POD) is a great way to pay for books as needed. Less money up front.

Your e-book covers has to look good in postage stamp size

You have to build your own audience and platform. Know who your audience is- Make a daily routine to stay connected with your audience.

Create a high quality books, get editors and designers.

Cost of your book should be 7x how much it cost to print it.

I love that you are posting these great notes!

We just had our ANWA conference and a few people were commenting that they miss seeing you at chapter meetings and miss hearing about your novel!
