Ron’s Tip of the Day Small Books

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. Today I am looking at Small Books.

By Small Book I am talking about books less than 150 pages whether 8.5 x 11 or 6 x 9.

Lately I have been receiving interest from authors wanting to publish small books. These are books that amount to only 100 pages or up to 150 pages. This actually aligns with our intent to help authors out at a low cost.

When I first received this request, I began researching to see if it was doable. An important fact I discovered is that Kindle has a minimum requirement of 100 pages. So, to offer help we would need to do it without Kindle. Big change!

But as I reviewed the needs of potential customers, I realized that the process of working with them so that they could achieve a Print Ready document was entirely doable! So, I created two plans that would accomplish that.

Plan Custom 120 – This is for books of 120 pages or less. We help them with the Front Matter, the book material, and the Back Matter up to the publish step. The last step is either hire us for an additional fee to get the book published or deal directly with a local printer (we would make suggestions).

Plan Custom 150 – This is for books of 150 pages or less. Otherwise same as the 120.

This is exciting because it fits right in with our desire to help new and struggling authors at a low cost.

My wife (Tess) and I are authors and co-founders of T&R Independent Books. Founded in 2014 TR publishes our books and promotes writing. While we write in two different genres (Tess in Teen and mystery, myself in historical fiction) both writings are from a Christian perspective. I am first a Christian and secondly an author. I love writing about Old Testament saints. Whenever I write I always try to place myself within the primary character's shoes. In long novels that means I may focus on different characters at differing times. The result hoped for is that I bring the character to life. Apparently, according to reviewers, I have achieved this. I also write in Speculative fiction (future history, if you will), plus we've not started TR Writing Services to assist new and struggling authors to write and publish using the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform. And we keep our prices low.
