Coming soon - So There I Was - the book!
My trip to the Quakers United in Publishing Conference in April pushed me over the final intellectual hurdle to self-publishing.
I have a bunch of good writing and good ideas on my computer and in my head.
I love the quality of our Faith and Practice Book and our local Press is helpful and swift.
The stigma attached to self-publishing has almost vanished.
The cost is not prohibitive.
Cutting out the middlepeople of editors and publisher doesn't hurt my feelings at all.
So I bought a block of ten ISBNs and here I go.
I am working with a selection of my So There I Was UPI columns.
I expect to have it in my hands by the fourth of July.
I will take some pre-orders in a couple of weeks. It is looking like it it going to be about 250 pages and when I get the quote from the press, I can price the book and start taking orders.
You guys encourage me!
I'm with Nate so I hope you're thinking internationally! Great that QUIP has had such a positive effect on you. Your presentation there certainly had one on me!Post a Comment
