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.

Hi everyone,

Today I’m sharing a look at my new Medallion Press historical western, LIES, LOVE & REDEMPTION. This full-length novel is set on the Nebraska prairie in 1877 and blends a steamy romance with mystery, and danger.

Here’s the summary:

Lies, Love & 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?

Cole’s Perfect Puppy, Perfect Puppy Series Book One
Frances M. Crossno
ISBN#978-1506-901-68-8
10.0 out of 10.0 stars
 
Cole’s Perfect Puppy by Frances M. Crossno is Book One of the Perfect Puppy series. Written for young readers, (ages 7-12), this book teaches core Christian values through a delightful, compassionate and sometimes humorous storyline that parents will love. Cole and Caleb are brothers. Their parents are photographers for a world geographic magazine, thus they live with their Uncle Bobby. Cole, the main character, desperately wants a puppy for Christmas. He finds the perfect puppy, but finds out along the way that hard work, treating others right and loving your neighbor as yourself are more important than his own wants.
 
Chapter one begins as Cole finds and falls in love with the perfect puppy (Scarlet), which is a golden retriever that he finds in a mall pet store. Packed with action, the little puppy escapes from the pet store and after a wild chase, young Cole and the mall security guard finally catch up with the fast pup.  Christmas morning comes and Cole is elated to find a “moving” present under the treeTo his utter shock, his Uncle Bobby has gotten him a quite a different present. One he was not expecting! His little brother Caleb can’t stop laughing as Cole finds him on the floor in an unstoppable belly roll. (You’ll have to read the story to find out what the pet was.) The story goes on from there as lessons are learned by the characters. The author gives help and hope from a Christian perspective that relate to life’s sometimes disappointing circumstances that can be overcome.
 
This book comes highly recommended (and is an award winning book) that offers clean and wholesome reading for children and preteen readers. Themed with a simple storyline that is encouraging, innocent, well-written and sheds light on the Jesus, salvation and the scripture, “Give and it will be given unto you . . .” parents will appreciate this adorable book. The humor is much appreciated, as well as the author asking the question, “What would Jesus do?” Thus leaving room open for discussion. A wonderful story that teaches some valuable life lessons!  
 
*This book would be a great gift for the Christmas season, but is recommended for any time of the year.

Coming Soon, New Book Release ~ Christian author Rashad Gibson releases, The Deception of Eloquence, a much-needed read for today’s Church and the seasons to come. 

Speaking on such topics as signs and wonders mentioned in the Gospels and the highly controversial protest of what some call “Cessationism” within the Church. The author examines Old and New Testaments with keen insight that brings to light the truth of the Scriptures that will challenge your thinking in regards to signs, wonders, healing and deliverance. The author also sheds light on doctrinal error and apostasy within the Church in regards to beliefs, false teachings, signs and wonders, that brings clarity and increased faith that the signs and wonders are for today.

Rashad Gibson’s new book release, The Deception of Eloquence will be soon available at Amazon, in Kindle and at other fine online bookstores.

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.
