For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Can you give us more detail? Exactly what kinds of programs do you give and what works to sell books there? I'll be doing some talks on the subject of my books in the future, so I'm eager to learn more.
Hi Steve- I am the first woman (and only-so far) to hike the entire North Country Trail (4400 miles). I give programs about my adventures, and also nature programs, and some "women in the outdoors" things.
It creates the exact credibility I need to sell the books. People hear that I am funny, and they like my pix... so they are more likely to believe that the book isn't another boring hike journal.
Nope- printed locally (in my state). Didn't do as big a markup as is suggested because it needs to be affordable. The cover was a problem. The proofs were great, but then they subcontracted it, and the result is shifted to pink- they gave me a nice refund because the only other choice was to grind off the bindings and re-issue with a smaller gutter.
I didn't like that and had a promised delivery deadline, so I took the refund.
I understand completely! Publishing is such a mound of details! Then, just when you think things are going smoothly, Murphy's Law gets unleashed! At least that's the way it tends to happen to me.
Congrats for hanging in there!

Hey guys, what I have found that is working for my book "God Expects Perfect? " is the use of facebook, the members are from all over the world, I write about a Chapter topic the expound even further than that which is in my original book. I also started a relaxed but serious page on facebook for pre-married and married called "Christian Marriage Forever" where I share recepies , weekly events, original quotes, and exhort couples to look for ways to show love to each other, keeping a perspective of faithfulness always between one man and one woman. ~ randy hignight sr.
I hope everyone can help me with this. I find with my FB that I'm getting mostly friends and family, whom I love, but I want to reach authors and people to help me with speaking engagements and all. Is there a section in FB for this?
I'm having more people in Linkedin contact me with business opportunities.
I appreciate any leads.
