BEING YOUR OWN PUBLISHER

Yeah, yeah, there's new tech parameters and a paradigm shift and all that.

But the important thing is that there are (and always have been) alternatives to writing something then trying to sell the rights to a publishing company. This group is to explore these areas of self-owned publishing biz.

Some writers have niche books, some have special needs (like texts for their seminars), some are just too entrepreneurial to sell of their own inspirations. And some just want to see something in print.

There is a spectrum these days, from big publishers through the new, small POD publishers, to using publishing services like lulu.com or iuniverse, to printing yourself and selling online, to release of downloadable mp3 "podcasts" or pdf manuals.

If you have expertise, experience, or questions in this area, don't be shy about posting them here. It's a rapidly expanding field and nobody knows everything about it, but lots of us are learning enough to do what we want to do and successfully get it across the counter.

Title: Lily
By. B.J. Bassett
A CBM Christian Book Review
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
.
A Must Read ... Lily by B.J. Bassett sheds light on the hope and redemption that comes from faith in Jesus Christ through a historical fiction novel. Set in the early 1900’s, the book chronicles the coming of age and faith of Lily. 
.
Lily’s mother died in childbirth after Lily was born. Raised by her father, the Reverent William Blair, Lily emerges as a brave and outgoing child with a feisty disposition. This is a wonderful and exciting novel that displays the tensions in life struggles with faith, emotions, and the growing up of a young girl into a woman. 
.
Being surrounded by the Christian faith, Lily accepts this, yet she still has questions…namely how do close family members, including White Dove and Running Cloud, have such amazing peace and joy within themselves despite circumstances. This intrigues Lily, as she witnesses their peace in all they do. She wonders where this peace comes from because she does not experience it. Her demeanor in her growing up years can be quite different.  
.
Upon her falling in love with James, Lily’s life reveals a time when unwed mothers were unacceptable. Such issues in the novel expose some domestic violence, and time where this was simply not addressed. Lily’s life regrets from the consequences of bad decisions culminate.
.
The author offers the nostalgia of letter writing to express and create the story-line throughout the book, which brings fresh interludes and endings. Further, intertwining romance with a Christian-based theme of faith and love that traces Lily through her life, despair, loss to finding hope, triumph, peace and contentment. Lily comes to a wonderful and delightful conclusion that will inspire readers to enjoy life in the present.
.
Young women will enjoy this novel as they witness the blossoming of Lily into a beautiful woman.  This is a sweet novel that also speaks of a mother’s love and the fruits of the Spirit in one’s soul. There is some bad language and a little violence, yet the author lovingly deals with certain issues as fear, guilt, condemnation, forgiveness versus what comes naturally in one’s soul sometimes…such as anger, frustration, depression, etc.
.
She offers Lily and her boisterous personality to teach readers that God’s way is sweet, and one can enjoy life when you “stop and smell the roses.” Cuddle up, get comfortable and grab a favorite cup of tea or coffee with this one! A satisfying drama and novel.
.

God's Masterpiece: A Portrait of The Born Again Spirit by Herbert Fearman speaks of a very important subject that is not readily taught often, but this life-transforming principle showcased in John 3:3 and John 3:5 should be shouted from the mountain tops.
.
Jesus told us in John 3:3 and John 3:5 that except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God and except a man be born of water and of the Holy Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God. We should all know more about this glorious new creation that's taken place inside of every Spirit-filled believer in Jesus Christ. Yet, this book gives a portrait of the new believer’s redemption and regeneration of their spirit man.
.
By mediating on God's Masterpiece, the author believes readers will gain insight into the New Testament, bringing clarity and a more rewarding experience. As the author states, “It's truly amazing when you begin to discover the things God has already given us and it's even more mind blowing to realize what he deposited inside of us when we gave our lives to His Son, Jesus.”
.
God Almighty has glorious fellowship with us right now in heavenly places that we know nothing about, but he's just beginning to pull back the curtain and give us a glimpse. The things He has done just to make sure our communion with Him will never again be broken is truly remarkable.
.
Readers will find that this book is a short and easy read filled with revelation knowledge and power. By the design of the Holy Spirit this book lets the Bible do the talking instead of giving opinions. I love it when the Scripture's breathe fresh revelation and the revelation in this book paints a lovely portrait of the born again spirit.

I Was Born Like This is written to bring healing and resolve to many people who are suffering from an identity crisis, whether social, psychological, or sexual.

Offering clarity to the masses who feel and know that what they are dealing with was not acquired behavior, but is rather an inherent condition. I Was Born Like This explains how one can exhibit certain behaviors that were neither taught nor learned, seeking to free people from a spirit of condemnation and redirect their problems back to their original owner-Adam in the Garden of Eden.

This book also breaks the back of religious injustice and bigotry and puts every man and every sin on common ground, providing hope to the hopeless and life to the lifeless through powerful, heart-wrenching testimonies combined with the impact of the Word of God through the power of Jesus Christ.

Hi everyone,

I’m pleased to announce the release of my western romance, Love, Lies and Redemption. Set in 1877 Nebraska, this novel blends a sensual love story with mystery and danger.


Love, Lies and Redemption

Shot and left for dead, Sam Hixton stumbles into a general store on the Nebraska prairie and collapses into the arms of Cassie Wilcox.

Cassie’s world is turned upside down when the handsome stranger drops into her life. Sam is another complication she doesn’t need: her business is dying and her trouble with the townspeople is escalating. Yet she’s determined to keep the store open — no matter what the cost.

As Sam recovers from his injuries, he hides the truth about his identity and convinces Cassie to let him work in the store. He’s attracted to her and admires her independent nature, but quickly realizes Cassie’s in way over her head. They fight their growing attraction, and Cassie questions whether she can trust her fragile heart to a mysterious stranger. Will he accept her once he knows about her troubled past?

Cassie resists Sam’s advances and represses her feelings until one fateful night when they give in to their fiery passion. Together, they work out a plan to save the store, but find their efforts are thwarted — and their lives endangered — by the locals.

Sam’s secret returns to haunt him and pulls him away just when Cassie needs him the most. Will he regain her trust when she learns the truth?

Cassie has everything invested in the store — can she save it and find true love with Sam before it’s too late?

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!
