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.

NEW HORROR RELEASE

Hi everyone!

My latest horror story, “Nightmare in the North” was just released. This novella is a cautionary tale about traveling alone in the winter. 

 

NIGHTMARE IN THE NORTH

Stranded during a violent blizzard, Mark hikes to the only house nearby. George, a well-mannered University professor, welcomes Mark and gives him shelter from the storm.

By morning, Mark suspects that everything isn’t what it seems. George’s adult daughter, Kate, who also lives in the house, shares a disturbing and unsettling tale. When questioned, George insists that Kate has a psychological issue and can’t be trusted to tell the truth.

Mark quickly finds himself caught in a game of cat and mouse. Who should he believe? Is Kate’s desperate plea for help sincere? Should he be suspicious of George? Or are both of them plotting something together?

Isolated from everyone, Mark is forced to wait out the storm—and find a way to escape—if he hopes to make it out alive.

Hi,

I’m pleased to announce the release of my historical romance, REDEMPTION FROM A DARK PAST. This full-length Gothic novel is set in the kingdom of Hungary in 1723 and blends a sensual romance with mystery and suspense.

REDEMPTION FROM A DARK PAST

Lord Sebestyen Adrik has an unsavory reputation as a madman, murderer… and worse. Lonely and searching for love, he seeks the companionship of local young women, hoping one of them will ease his torment and bring him the happiness he longs for. Katarina is his last chance—but will she fear him like all the others? Or is she the one who can lift his curse?

Desperate to avoid a forced marriage, Katarina agrees to become Lord Adrik’s latest companion, despite the rumors she has heard about him. She discovers the “Dark Lord’s” secret past and realizes he’s not the monster everyone thinks he is.

As their love blossoms, she renews his passion for life—yet they cannot escape the ghosts of the past.

When a meeting of the nobility goes horribly wrong, Sebestyen’s world unravels, and his enemies plot to destroy him. As all seems lost, a mysterious stranger arrives at the castle. Sebestyen must decide if he is a friend or a foe…and if he can find redemption in his love for Katarina, or lose her and everything else that he holds dear.

This book is a Last Days’ warning to the Church. Stating that the return of Jesus is near, the author asks a poignant question, “Will Jesus be coming for you? Or, will you hear him say, ‘Depart from Me. I never knew you.’ ”
.
This is a stern warning against complacency perpetuated by wrong doctrine. In this book, the author presents fundamental teachings that will help one discern the Kingdom of God, and what is required to enter. Digging deep into Scripture, the author journeys, records and comments through a resounding amount of teachings and scripture verses, offering an overview of the main elements of salvation and the Kingdom of God. Sound Biblical doctrine remains the focus to include the parables of Jesus. Developed through much study, one would do well to read this book and discern for themselves and ask, Are they going to Heaven or have they been deceived either by self, the world or both?
.
With discernment and insight, this book has 64 chapters explaining who goes to hell with many other teachings explaining the temporal and the eternal. While that may sound daunting, the book is laid out well, giving each chapter its own subject title. Making each subject easily understandable, the reader will understand what the Kingdom of Heaven is like, understand Who Jesus is and why we need to be re-born into the Kingdom of God, understand who goes to hell, and so much more, while offering fresh revelation, insight and inspiration into our inheritance as believers in Christ. One will come away knowing the paradigm of the two co-existing realities: the Kingdom of God in Heaven and on the Earth. Additionally, both the New and Old Covenant teachings are also included within the book, which gives readers a firm grasp of the curse of death that Adam brought and the new life Jesus offers through His death on the cross.
.
Influential, powerful and most importantly Biblical, this book is full of wisdom for these Last Days to becoming a pure and spotless Bride that Jesus is returning for.
.
Highly Recommended For Every Person, Believer Or Not, To Review And Consider ~ CBM Christian Book Reviews. 
.
This is a highly recommended read for every Christian, unbeliever and skeptic. Get your copy of Who Goes to Hell: The Lie Christians Believe as a download in Kindle. .99 cent Kindle Special.

Finding Christ Through the Chaos: A Mother’s Walk with Christ, Caring for Her Special Needs Child Son that Couldn’t by Gina Insinna Rice is her life story from childhood, giving birth to a son born with cerebral palsy and finding Christ through it all. Her life’s unexpected twists and turns reveal an intimate walk with God and the discovery of His presence through a series of encounters. Her story is unique as she describes the chapters of her family’s lives through a whirlwind of events. Her story is amazing, heartwarming, and touching. Readers will laugh and cry but will also be greatly encouraged by her constant faith in God, as she candidly shares memorable moments and reveals a sense of humor all the way through.
.
The theme that resonates throughout her testimony is that Gina simply never gave up.  At the age of twenty-one, caring for a special needs child brought her joy, tears and a perseverance not from this world, but that came from God as He gave her strength for the journey. Both Gina and her husband also remain a “statistic” in her community (parents with special needs children that remain married), giving all the glory to God.
.
Gina has written her testimony to share with others God’s faithfulness and to encourage caregivers of special needs children. Surely, her book is a testament to faith in God no matter the circumstance, that gives triumph to a mother’s unending love (and father’s), unfolding a true love story of triumph, loyalty, the bonds of family and God that are unbreakable. Throughout she expresses her love to God and to others, revealing a simple walk of trusting in Him one day at a time.  
.
Inspiring and uplifting, this book is memorable and comes highly recommended for all that may be suffering, or for those who may be caring for a sick child or parent.

Misconceptions of Healing, Blessings and Miracles in the Church by Tiza Joseph Nyirenda speaks of doctrinal and Biblical error that the Church is participating in and writes to correct these errors. His hopes are that the Church will rise up in effectiveness and power through the Holy Spirit.
.
Beginning with a statement from Kathryn Kuhlman, “A little knowledge and an over-abundance of zeal always tend to be harmful. In the area involving religions truths, it can be disastrous.” With that said, the author writes to educate and equip the Body of Christ in the area of misconceptions in regards to healings, and gives inspiration to be witnesses of the great miracles and blessings of God.
.
Stating that, “People are zealous for God, but zeal without a deeper understanding of the Word of God can lead down destructive paths.” Additionally stating that there is a need for the Body of Christ to differentiate truth from error. He writes his book with candor and bases his book on Biblical wisdom. He speaks of fanaticism that has taken over the Church and has largely included examples from Africa, although fanaticism is taking place worldwide within the Church. He makes sure that readers understand that his book is not an attack on healing evangelists, but states we must learn from our mistakes, the past and from Scripture.
.
His book is written to give a deeper understanding of the ways Jesus heals, performs miracles and the blessings of God. Addressing such questions as medical interventions, work ethic, and the power of prayer, the author has also included a synopsis of some of the great healing evangelists such as William Branham, Oral Roberts and Gordon Lindsay, to include Kathryn Kuhlman. Scripture interpretation, common sense and Biblical wisdom make his book an informative read that disputes error in the Church.
.
This is a must-read for every Christian to consider as they look to God for the healing miracles in their lives and the lives of others.

The First Seed by David Witman is a colorful and beautifully illustrated children’s book depicting an old oak tree (as modern academia) and a little boy who have an interesting conversation. The little boy is able to look up to this big oak tree and ask, “Where did you come from and how did you get to be so big?” The old oak tree answers cordially, and has the same answer back to the boy every time with the exception of different seeds the tree came from. Question after question, the little boy asks and asks, until he finds out where the original seed came from.

.
With a series of answers, the last question that the little boy asks cannot be answered. Parents can answer for the book to dispel naturalistic views and introduce that the first seed came from a eternal being, namely God, who created the very first seed by intelligent design.
.
Helping children recognize the systematic problem with “conjecture,” this book makes children think. Pointing children to God as the Creator of everything contained in the Universe, the author dispels evolution (and naturalistic views) brought forth by Academia’s as the ultimate and true fact.
.

With wit and a curious little boy, the author teaches children that we didn’t just “magically evolve” from one thing into the next thing as our science books are teaching our children as fact. The author has given children just enough knowledge of plant life and DNA to help them understand God and Science, and that God created all DNA and plants.
.
This is a wonderful story to share with children to make them think about our world, and help them understand that God created all things. Beautifully written.

Intertwined lives brings a surprising alliance with God and friends at Alliance Lake.
.
Six teenagers grow up fast as they have to cope with a tragedy that has impacted the entire small town of Alliance, Ohio. Time continues on and so must they. It is time to face the real world. The author offers a reminiscent read that captures past eras, presenting hope, inspiration and encouragement ~ leading others to a renewed life in Jesus, the Son of God.
.
Alliance Lake: Be Still
 by Timothy Jay takes readers back to the 70’s and 80’s, an era long gone by. A time of innocence in America and a time of being a teenager in the 80’s, and young adulthood in the 90’s. Filled with humor and the “old days” nostalgia, mentioning out-dated technology (rotary phones, boom boxes, and arcades, this novel makes remembering these things an enthusiastic and fun experience traveling down memory lane.  
.
Lovingly dedicated to those on their own journey and to those who relied on their own understanding early in life, only to come to a deep dissatisfaction with the outcome, having walked crooked paths (Psalm 3:5-6), this book challenges teens, (and adults alike) to deepen their walk with God. Ushering an understanding that He is a loving God, and they can move forward after tragic loss. Evil is in the world, but it does not overcome us is one of the themes that play throughout the book.
.
Alliance Lake: Be Still 
highlights God in the midst of individuals’ lives and brings them to a place of peace and stillness – slowing down to hear from God.  
.
A wonderful Christian Fiction Novel and must read for the 40 and up crowd! 10.0 stars out of 10.0 stars
.
