I am currently developing a FREE Writing Course that will cover the business of writing, writing itself, websites, and publishing. Hope to have it available in near future. If you’re interested in the course just write me at my email address (below) and I’ll send a link once the course is ready.
You’ve probably heard the phrase “Everyone has a story” sometime in your lifetime. I believe this is true. Most people don’t realize it, aren’t interested in writing, or don’t know how. But all of us have life experiences that can be instructive or entertaining to the rest of us.
In 2014 Teresa and I formed our own publishing company: TR-Independent Books. Although getting up and running was time consuming we have not regretted it.
I believe that if the author is going to invest his or herself into writing a book, any book, then they deserve to benefit from it.
I have found over the years that CreateSpace (CS) can produce quality books with “free” tools. As a result I make use of them.
CreateSpace is a publishing platform that offers you the control you desire and, along with it, the ability to reap the profits. Would you like to start getting 35% royalties at the first printing? Or how about 70% royalty? Either one is possible.
The consensus opinion is that you need to have your book copyrighted. Now the truth is that the moment you create the work it is considered copyrighted. This means that you can include a copyright designation in your book (example: copyright © 2017).
You can also file with the government to get the book copyrighted.
So why do I Market it for less than $10 a month? I do so because I realize that there are talented people out there waiting for the opportunity to write but they simply cannot afford to go to college or to participate in an expensive course. By keeping the price low I am able to give them their best opportunity now!
Everyone has a story in them. But not everyone can write. Even those who can write need to be taught. We produced for you this self-teaching book called, So You Want to Write? We decided that as good as the book is, we needed to provide more. So we have created three guides (Authors Writing Guide, Authors Publishing Guide, and Authors Marketing Guide).
