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.

God Cares for Me in Every Season: Godly Insights for Singleness, Marriage, and Divorce by Agnes Amos-Coleman sets the stage to choose life according to God’s ways in every season of life, whether single, married, or divorced. Her book is organized in three sections pertaining to each season: single, married, or divorced. She speaks to Christians globally and to non-Christians, and links the eroding moral values of our times, (backed up by Gallop Poll Statistics).
.
Offering answers as to the reasons for certain seasons, each section is designed to offer godly foundations that produce the fruits of the Spirit. Intended to present understanding of God’s care during all seasons, God’s plan is that one will produce fruit in their lives. With keen insight and Biblical wisdom, the author sheds light through God’s Word, presenting an easy, three-pronged approach, giving hope for each season of life.
.
Developed through the teaching of the nine fruits of the Spirit, the author writes from a place of personal experience that brings inspiration and the blending of Christian principles and scripture verses that enhance one’s season in life. Each particular season is covered in three distinct sections to glean from, making for an easy read. The organization of the book presents a palatable format that asks your current season, (single, married, or divorced), presents life-lessons learned from these seasons, and presents to readers scripture affirmations for this particular season in their lives.
.
In the end, the author brings readers to a glorious conclusion, offering a steadfast hope in following the Lord in all His ways. Additionally, a type of a glossary is given presenting one scripture verse that best defines such terms as: love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, grace, forgiveness, obedience, blessing, encouragement, unity, Holy Spirit, praise, thankful, trust, waling in the Spirit, and offers a salvation prayer as well.
.
This book comes highly recommended to those who need inspiration and are growing in the Lord. In particular, the book is a way to digest the Word, while also receiving wisdom and direction for ones life.
.
You may order your copy of God Cares for Me in Every Season: Godly Insights for Singleness, Ma... or in Kindle. You can visit the author at, Agnes Amos-Coleman.

If Only by La Verne Hughes is a fascinating fictional journey into a rich Kingdom, the testing of a true love that has its roots in the Scripture verse 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 (NIV), “Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no records of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
.
This plight is set in a kingdom off the coast of Africa. A family has all the wealth, status and provision they could ever need, until the unthinkable happened. . .the takeover of their country from another king succeeded. Brought from a place of wealth and stability to a place of devastation, speaks of wrong decisions made, rejections that separated the ties of family that bring separation.  Can anyone recover from such devastation and rejection that is perceived by each other, in which the rejections have created an invisible barrier between loved ones. Many have experience such separations in family and relationships.  
.
This is an amazing read that speaks of true love, offering a mysterious adventure asking, “Will it stand the testing of everything or succumb to its bleak future?”  This book comes highly recommended as fantastic and well-written read. At only 76 pages, this book offers hope despite rejection, loss and grief that reminds us all of what true love is.

Mat with only one t by Jeff Thomas is a beautifully told and illustrated story of Mat and his grandpa. Endearing, Mat talks about his grandpa from the time grandpa spent with him when he was born, to summers fishing with grandpa, continuing with all the loving lessons that his favorite grandpa taught him! With a rhyming saying, “Give a smile and give from your heart, and your gift will keep giving even when you’re apart,” and a memorable ending, the book displays many heartfelt sentiments. In the end, grandpa passed on which makes this book a special read for those little ones dealing with the loss of a grandparent. His giving of a “t” in his name symbolizes salvation and is an opportunity for parents to tap into the salvation message. (Little ones can see the shadow of a t on the grandpa’s back that makes for a lasting mental impression).
.
This book opens the door for honest talks about the cycle of life and how much we love our loved ones. This children’s book also is one that children and parents alike are not likely to forget. Although, a sad ending, the story speaks of reality to some and may help children to cope and understand with the difficulties of a losing a loved one. Parents might explain that Heaven is a place where we can see our relatives after we all have gone to Heaven.
.
This book comes also highly recommended for a child that may have lost a beloved grandparent, and to Christian parents that would like to talk about salvation to their children.
.
The author has done an excellent job in taking a delicate matter and leaving the reader with a touching story that will always be remembered. Mat giving his “t” should remind us all just how much Jesus loved us for giving us His salvation.

David R. Stokes invites readers on a delightful road of forgiveness to thriving in every way. Connecting the dots, the author leads readers through the art of storytelling, as Jesus did, to the discovery of grace (through Christ) and relates what that means for us.
.
He offers help through the application of forgiveness, mercy, love, patience, the Bible and God’s ways that challenges readers to make an inner-self survey. Dealing with such subjects as: anger, bitterness and unforgiveness, he shows readers the only way to having true and lasting inner peace – through reliance on God and complete forgiveness. Knowing that we all get hurt, even when trying to do “good” things – and even by those who are within the church walls, he begins with the story of the Good Samaritan as a backdrop to the question: What do you do when you receive hurt and/or pain either physically, emotionally, or spiritually from other believers (and others in the world)? Offering true scriptural and Biblical answers, this book offers hope for the journey into forgiveness, the grace of God and a renewing of the mind that leads to maturity in Christ.
.
Using such Biblical examples as “Saul of Tarsus” who was later converted to the Apostle Paul and also Joseph’s story, the author also relates a number of compelling true-life stories that add intrigue and captivate one’s intellect and heart. Teaching and instructing along the way, the author advocates Scripture memorization as way to build the inner man and faith – as one learns to “take every thought captive”- and tend to your thoughts as you would a garden – plucking out the weeds. 
.
Truthfully, there is not a person on this Earth who can say, “I’ve had a pain free life.” With that in mind, inevitably this book will touch you in some profound way. I have to say this is the only  book, (that I read in only two sessions and wanted to read straight through). I could literally not put the book down! 
.
This book is a highly  recommended read for the Church, the Body of Christ, for pastors to hand out or for anyone looking to move forward and get better – not bitter.

A Highly recommended read - World War S: The Silence Begins (Book 1) and The Servants of the Dragon (Book 2) by Stephen Paul Thomas combine elements of a science fiction thriller novel with a religious twist that is an intense page turner ~ CBM Christian Book Reviews.

.

Set sometime in the near future, the world has become a place of darkness. On the edge of economic and social collapse, key elements of society have changed: no Christianity allowed and the pursuit of seeking the divine through other means is elevated to a worldwide phenomenon. 

.

Seeking diviners and fortunetellers offer an escape for those upon the Earth, an escape tailored to meet their fleshly desires, leading them away from truth and into deception.

.

Two key characters, Josh and Julie, are the mainstay characters, along with other side events simultaneously occurring. Josh is a lighthearted boy with an amazing prophetic and revelatory ability. Julie is an ER doctor and physiologist whose focus has become more of an experiment to understand the nature of her clients’ Near Death Experiences (NDE). Her inquires are rooted in explaining the connection of the mind, soul and afterworld upon the cessation of life.

.

Heart pounding, riveting, and full of suspense, this novel is fast-paced and although a fiction novel, the scenarios depicted seem to be a plausible future considering world events, i.e., persecution of the Saints and a false religion that explodes. What would the world look like without the truth of God’s Word? Being a Christian is outlawed and it seems the world is on the edge of collapse. The author paints a vivid picture that blends elements of science fiction, demonic entanglement and the spiritual world that shed light into World War S.

.

Intriguing, this spiritual world war sounds vaguely familiar - What if the world was really like this?  And we are already living in this time or on the brink of total economic and social collapse, which brings such deception, demonic oppression and anarchy? All questions you can explore within this “brutally good,” “The reality of the demonic,” “Prophetic,” and “Genious” book.

.

A highly recommended author and series to follow! Quite unique.

From Alpha to Omega: An Overview of the Bible by Stanley D. Rasberry offers to readers a “short handbook of the Bible” to assist readers in understanding the Bible, from beginning to end. 
.
Rightly named, From Alpha to Omega, (in Greek meaning “the beginning” and “the end”) the author begins with the book of Genesis through the book of Revelation, 66 books covered in all. Grouped into 15 separate sections and a List of Tables, the author has made the Bible easy to understand. His purpose is to help readers know time periods, meanings and messages, the authors of the relevant sections and how this intertwines with us today in this modern-day age. Readers will come to understand the Bible as a book of prophecy that has told the beginning and the end of the human race, giving instructions on how to live, the origin of sin, man and the many centuries that have passed since the beginning of time. The author states, “With it in hand, the reader can see the Bible with fresh eyes.”(p.v).
.

This is a must-read and complimentary to anyone wanting to understand the meaning of life, their purpose with focus on The Old and New Covenants, the Gospels, Jesus, and God’s divine plans for humanity and the future End Time scenario. With such sections as: Alpha: Jesus and the Eons, Two Men: Job and Mel, Chosen People, Escape from Egypt, Covenants, Laws and Sacrifices, Promised Land, Three Kings, Wisdom and Songs, Six Empires, Two Captivities, One Restoration, The Gospels, The New Church, Instructions to the Growing Church, Omega: The Revelation of Jesus, with discussions on the Early Church years and study group sessions, the author has given a complete overview. Additional Tables give valuable information such as: The Twelve Tribes of Israel, The Ten Commandments, the Feasts and Festivals, The Judges, Psalms Themes, Abbreviated Timelines, The Kings after Solomon, and so much more that add to the scope of the book.
.

With the inclusion of the original Greek in sections the author begins with Scripture and introduces succinctly and concisely each historical event in the corresponding book of the Bible. Suggested reading is to read each section. Then, if desired, read the referenced Bible material covered in the Bible (i.e., Genesis, and so on). Designed for the mature and new Christian alike, this handbook is an excellent resource that makes understanding the Bible, easy, convenient and fascinating.
.

Highly, highly recommended for all Christians, pastors, Bible instructors, lay teachers and counselors, Bible study groups or individuals seeking to better understand the Bible and God’s divine blueprint for planet Earth and all of humanity. Condensed and concise (only 222 pages), this book would also be a good book for professors to add to their list of required reading in Bible schools and degree programs. - Get your copy of  From Alpha to Omega: An Overview of the Bible at Amazon.

Words can be profound ~ Diamante’s Lavendar’s powerful book, Poetry & Ponderingsoffers hope and healing in a transformational and beautiful work of non-fictional poetry and prose. Dedicated to her daughter, and also to those who have been wounded by abuse, this book comes highly recommended for those that desire to understand themselves, their circumstances and has been developed to lead one into a practice of faith in God, giving peace and hope for the future. Forgiveness and acceptance are also a teaching that is weaved into her poems. 
.
For those that appreciate the art of language through poems, expressions and acronyms, and those who also relate to a Christian perspective, this book offers hope in finding new life in God that will instill a deep appreciation for those who choose triumph over tragedy. Hope and encouragement is a common thread throughout as the healing journey is depicted. The author’s deep faith in God displays how God carried her through to the other side of healing, letting others know that He is our help.
.
The author displays great compassion and a deep love for her beloved child, and for others, that have suffered through years of abuse. Her hopes are to help them find healing through a journey of healing to find God as her ponderings and poems present to readers the temporal state of all who dwell on Earth. Further, advocating a process of healing (one step at a time), the author gives encouragement to sufferers of abuse that the pain can heal. The author sheds light into the hope available through letting go, forgiveness and focusing on the Lord’s providence, plans, dreams and God’s Word.
.
Prophetic, insightful and uplifting, the book is framed from a series of “Affirmations” that shed light into the healing process. (Isaiah 61 comes to mind). Within her book are beautifully inspired acronyms for words such as “I Love You” and “Faith” that go straight to the heart. Her book flows, like the ebbing of ocean waves, that speak of life-lessons learned from laying all aside, only to accept what is lovely, pure, holy and true.
.
Biblical in nature, the author leads readers on a journey to healing and to having a positive outlook on life. The poems help one to live a God-breathed life to the fullest and to live in a state of forgiveness. This book addresses such issues as: anger, self-esteem, sexual abuse, forgiveness, grief, despair and turns those “ashes” into “beauty.” 
.
Poetry & Ponderings: A Journey of Abuse and Healing Through Poetry comes highly recommended to those who have been sexually abused, as a way to calm, express and bring clarity, giving hope and affirmation in God that bring healing (and a smile) to a wounded soul.
