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.

CONFESSIONS OF A VAMPIRE’S LOVER

The moment Brian spotted Anya sitting on the moonlit beach, he was hooked. Beautiful, smart, and sexy, Anya was the girl of his dreams. She didn’t mind that he spent the hot summer days riding the ocean waves, because once the sun set, he belonged to her—all night long!

Everything is perfect between them—until Brian discovers Anya’s shocking secret. Can Brian give up the sun, sand, and surf to be with the woman he loves?

Read Brian’s first-hand account of their unusual love story in… Confessions of a Vampire’s Lover!

***

Confessions of a Vampire’s Lover is a different type of romance. For starters, the novella is told in the first person from the hero’s point of view. The story also makes use of a setting where you don’t normally find vampires—the beach!

The Kingdom Dream Journal 

It is amazing how the Lord speaks to us. In dreams, through visions, words of knowledge, prophetic words spoken by others and in those Kingdom circles when prophecy bubbles forth, as moved by the Spirit. 
 
Never knowing when God might speak to us, this book is made available for that very reason. As a journal and a way to keep track of those life-changing revelations that come to us in sometimes the most unexpected moments. 
 
By writing these important matters down, we have the opportunity to reflect upon them as time goes by, pray around them and to faithfully watch for them to come to pass. Have you ever been there? Months go by, sometimes years go by and those precious dreams, visions or words from the Lord slowly seem to fade from our memories? 
 
With this journal, and the simplicity of writing our revelations down, they will not simply fade from our memories. They will be recorded like as fresh manna for us to review and bring into remembrance as time passes. 
 
You will also find scriptures in the back of this book that will cover such topics as prophecy, dreams, visions, words of knowledge, revelation, the Spirit of Christ, the operation of the Holy Spirit and many others things that can help you to deepen your understanding surrounding how God can speak to you and manifest Himself to you.
 
Get your copy of Kingdom Dreams at Amazon.
