Getting a traditional book-publishing contract is difficult and time-consuming, so many people opt to self-publish.
If you’re new to publishing, the process can seem complex.
Susan Daffron’s award-winning book, Publishize: How to Quickly and Affordably Self-Publish a Book That Promotes Your Expertise details a cost-effective method to quickly self-publish a book.
The term “publishize” marries two terms: Publish and Publicize. When you take advantage of the power of publishing, you improve awareness of who you are and what you do.
Many consultants and business owners have discovered that publishing a book is a great way to demonstrate your expertise and get new clients.
With new tools and techniques, self publishing is easier than ever before. The information in Publishize will help you:
- Find the time to write a book and run your business at the same time. (Hint: working more hours is not the answer!).
- Unearth written gems lurking in your file cabinets and hard disk that can be incorporated into your book. You’ll become a “power recycler” so every word you write earns you money.
- Deal with the often misleading and confusing terms surrounding print-on-demand printing and “self-publishing companies.” You’ll learn when and why you should avoid subsidy or vanity presses and why being the publisher matters.
- Devise a mouthwatering book title that “hooks” exactly the right readers, along with layout and design information so you end up with a professional book that you’ll be proud to hand to people.
- Understand the six key elements of a book Web site and navigate the often-perplexing areas of online book marketing with information on everything from social media marketing to podcasting and video book trailers.
Unlike most publishing books, Publishize focuses on the publishing industry from the business owner’s perspective.
