I am set for e-publishing my books, but lately I’ve been wondering if I should put them into actual print as well.
I personally always buy the actual book when I like the ebook, because I like the look, feel, smell…all of that stuff, that you get with a printed book in your grubby lil hands. I like to have it all nice up on my bookshelf.
So I’ve been researching ‘print on demand’ sites. Some are not too terribly priced. Amazon has their own, an added option for when I place up my first ebook in the set. So people will have the option to by the ebook, printed book, or both.
Promotional products are another thing I’ve been looking into. Bookmarks, postcards, business cards, etc.
I really wanted book stubs, but they are really expensive. They are like little credit cards, your book cover on the front with a scan thingy on the back – so you can hand out a free copy of your book, they just scan the code on the back of their card with their phone or input the code on their preferred site (I’ll be publishing through several different outlets)
My editors need to get on the ball and stop dragging their feet so I can make needed corrections and the like. I may just have to drag out one of my swords and threaten dismemberment, one piece at a time. (¬‿¬)
