I chose to self-publish my book because it gave me full autonomy for format, page count, and tone. One of the limitations by self-publishing with Amazon is that small businesses won’t see my book in their catalogs – Amazon calls this Expanded Distribution. Unfortunately, using this method I would have to increase my book price to over $62; that is too high in my opinion.
The alternative is that I order Author’s Copies and have Amazon ship them out to these small businesses. I end up making around $4 a book when I sell it this way. It’s not a money maker by any means. But, it does the job of getting the information into the hands of folks to read. That’s amazing…
I completed two of these orders in the last two days. You should see copies of the book at the Gregg County Historical Society and Historical Construction Equipment Association.
If you are a small business, online store, or other low-volume retailer and would like copies of my book for sale, please get ahold of me at email@example.com. Let’s talk.
