Indie Publishing Success

The indie movement for musicians began immediately after the internet began to be widely used. David Nevue, a leader in this movement, created his first website in 1995 and has been promoting his music online ever since. These musicians take full responsibility for their careers. They pay for all the recording costs and then all the manufacturing costs. It is not uncommon for an initial run of CDs to be 1000-5000 copies. Indie musicians are also quite adept at "grassroots" marketing. Most indie musicians never become a household name but there are thousands and thousands of them that make a full-time living pursuing the craft they love.

While print on demand is useful for an author to get a book in print at nominal costs it is a terrible way to go for someone who wants to make a living as an author. It is just not cost effective and books that are printed that way are not competitively priced when compared to those printed by the big publishers.

It's time for more authors to take their dream of making a living as an author more seriously by committing the funds necessary to print their books in bulk and take the responsibility to promote them. This route provides a much higher profit potential in addition to being able to offer your book at more affordable prices.

I absolutely believe in the ability of independent authors to make a full-time living if that is their dream.

Please share any successes you have had promoting your own book.

Essential material for every pastors and evangelists tool box.
Jesus didn't just tell us to win souls - He told us to make disciples. Every evangelist should carry a few of these and every church should keep a few in the pastors office if we are actually winning souls and want to see them established in the kingdom.

Overcoming Abuse: Child Sexual Abuse Prevention and Protection--A Guide for Parents Caregivers and Helpers by Reina Davison offers a 3-part handbook to parents, caregivers, and helpers to aid in protection against child sexual abuse. Coupled with the use of Biblical principles, stages of development in children, this book teaches, educates and gives parents the arsenal they need to educate themselves and their families in either prevention or healing from traumatic child sexual abuse (CSA).
.
Giving the definitions of child sexual abuse (CSA) and the staggering statistics in our nation, coupled with the abuse worldwide – the abuse of children is unprecedented. Our day and age is raging with this sin against the most innocent of beings – children. Abuse comes in many forms and can be quite insidious, thus the author’s efforts focus on sexual abuse. She also gives insight into the psychiatric dynamics of a sexual predator or offender. Her book is well-rounded and an overview on the subject of CSA that gives knowledge, help and guidance as a manual for prevention and protection against such crimes.
.
As a comprehensive handbook, one can glean the contents and find out not only how to use her guide, but understand how to limit internet media and device pornography, recognize strategies of perpetrators, giving tips of what to do and what not to do – parents, caregivers and helpers can help recognize, prevent and protect children against childhood sexual abuse. This guide is an invaluable resource, offering also an overview of the main reasons for abuse (the psychology of abusers) to help readers spot unsafe behaviors, giving them a guidebook in tracking and preventing child sexual abuse.
.
With a section on educating your child on this subject, this book takes all the pieces of a giant puzzle, and even sheds light on the judicial system in relation to this issue. With different stages of age, such as birth to toddler, toddler to five, six to twelve, and twelve to eighteen, the author has broken down the different stages of growth, exposing the different levels of opportunity that sexual predators may use against a child at these ages, along with age appropriate environments and care providers.
.
This book comes as a highly recommended guide and handbook for parents and caregivers as well as for those dealing with such issues, pastors, police, counselors, child psychologists, medical staff, and the court system will find this information useful in teaching child sexual abuse (CSA) prevention and protection!

Reina Davison speaks to children, telling them they are “Overcomers.” This is a wonderful truth in God’s Word, as she begins the book by the definition of what an overcomer is. Opening children’s eyes to the truth of God’s purpose and plans for them, she goes on to describe God’s gift of free will. Describing Good Touch and Bad Touch; she elaborates on these two and what that can encompass. There are Good Touch people and Bad Touch people. Her book gives hope to children who have or have not experienced abuse by speaking the truth of God’s love and care for their body. She also teaches children how to prevent abuse by giving them the tools to know the difference between a healthy relationship and unhealthy relationships.
.
Writing from a Biblical perspective, yet incredibly gentle and simple, Reina Davison gives hope and guidance that exposes the darkness and sin of the enemy lurking in our lives. These people are unsafe and “No Touch” people as Reina explains. Her premise teaches children the principle of becoming “Overcomers” in Christ Jesus. This is a fantastic book that teaches wonderful and enlightening spiritual truths to children. (Note: This book just may encourage adults as well; teaching them that they are overcomers!) I personally enjoyed the uplifting truths to her book and thought…
I wish I had a book such as this when I was a child. You will be delighted by this book as well.
.
As a guidebook, this book teaches parents, caregivers, family members, etc., to understand what safe behavior is in and out of the home. Her Body Safety guide in the back provides a checklist for adults to adhere to in protecting children. With beautiful illustrations, the author sheds light on walking in the truth of God’s Word, while giving them instruction of their enemy (the devil), the Bible, and Jesus, offering hope and encouragement to look to Jesus as their help and Savior. Her book shows that God has a good plan for them and cares for them. She shares that they are Overcomers and can defeat the enemy (the devil) and that because of Jesus, they too can choose to be of Good Cheer (be happy). 

.
This book comes highly recommended for all children who need to be taught encouraging truths about God’s Word, and especially is a tool to be used by parents, counselors, pastors, child psychologists, medical personnel, and lay persons to teach about healthy sexual boundaries.  
.
To tell you the truth, this is one of those books parents should utilize in teaching their children about bad people that sin and touch inappropriately. She has given a list of resources in the back of the book, and is an advocate of ending child sexual abuse. Written with grace, wisdom, and sensitivity to children’s pure intellects, this book does a wonderful job in tackling a difficult subject.

Doomed Christianity & The Unshakable Life Line: Grace is Not Undeserved Favor, But  refers to a book written to expose the difference between what has become modern-day Christianity with what the Scripture says Christianity actually is.
.
Dr. Danson Ubebe refers to the first century Christians that only preached Christ crucified and recognized Jesus as the Shepherd who came to fulfill the Prophets and the Law. Somehow, Old Testament and New Testament teachings have now been woven together such as, “the chair of Moses, tithing, fasting from abstinence from food, and other traditions of the Law,” per the author. In this book, the author presents Scripture’s perspective vs. man’s perspective, offering the truth vs. a variation of truth. Dr. Danson E. Ubebe asks readers to choose for themselves after reading Scripture, as referred to in Deuteronomy 30:19, “…therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendants may live,” asking a poignant question, what is the truth? Therefore, readers can delve into this book to find truth, read the Bible for themselves and discover the teachings on eternal life, salvation and the way of truth.
.
Readers might ask themselves, what is the way of truth? As the author points out, the true Gospel of Jesus Christ is the way of truth. One would have to read what the Bible speaks on these matters to become more Christ-like and as such, the author provides a format for the building of Christ-like character that includes “holiness”. Specifically mentioning the role of the Holy Spirit as “the anointing,” the author concisely takes the readers through Biblical discourse back to the beginning of creation, Adam and Eve, the Fall of man, and God’s purpose for creating man, helping readers understand the brevity of the matter and the inerrant spoken Word of God as eternal. All want eternal life, but there is only one way, as the Scriptures will prove what is acceptable according to Scripture versus man’s opinion.
.
As noted, the role of the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture and lack of knowledge of Scripture has left a void, even a vacuum that some may explain as a giant pit, and a dark hole which from there is no return.
.
Within this book, he urges all to become a “student” of the Word and to look into the Bible for themselves to find truth. His teachings are Biblically sound and this book tells the truth that today’s Christian preachers, pastors and those who teach the Bible have made Christianity a huge platform for their own enterprise. (This attitude does not pertain to every person preaching, but involves a large share of those that might use His Gospel for their own profit.) This is not what Jesus preached in His Gospel and not what He intended. The Gospel is not a get rich scheme.
.
A highly recommended read for all that are searching for truth! You may get your copy of
 Doomed Christianity & The Unshakable Lifeline at Amazon.
