What is your worst fear about self publishing your book?
The question most often asked is, "How can I sell my book?", or some variant of that general problem. For the believer, that misses the true point of the exercise. The questions need to be:
- What is the Lord's vision for my writing?
- Who are the sheep or non-believers upon whom He wants my focus?
- What is the result I am seeking from my book?
- What part does it play in my character development as a disciple of Jesus?
For the Christian, this question has more issues than most because so much of the marketing advice is based on fleshly concerns and morally questionable actions. Believing self publishers have a different road to walk than the rest of the do it yourself publishing world.
This book will guide you through the maze of advice. The author has nearly forty years experience in walking in the Spirit and being led by the Lord. In addition, he has over 45 years of experience with graphic design, typography, art direction, book design, and digital publishing. For him, desktop publishing has been a daily reality since 1991.
This book will give you the book selling options and explain them to the place where you can make a decision about what the Lord wants you to do. The options are very different for writers of non-fiction and fiction. It makes a huge difference whether you are writing popular fiction in a huge market like romance, sic-fi, or mysteries or hard-hitting fiction in a techno-thriller. A bible-study or devotional needs a much different focus than is needed by a discipleship book for abused women.
This book will enable you to sort out all of these issues. It's a preview, stand-alone portion of David's upcoming book called "Practical Self Publishing for Christians".
