Promote Books With Short Run Book Printing

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Self-publishing is a good route to take when you want to control the printing, distribution and sales. Self publishing is faster, getting your book out to the public quicker, especially when you have a ready-made market, like text books, cookbook or children’s stories.  It's harder and harder these days to find traditional royalty publishers willing to take a chance on a first-time author or a book with unknown sales potential.

There are numerous options available for publishing your book, from local printers to full-service publishers. The Country Press will help you design and print the book.

An important factor to keep in mind in self publishing is how you will distribute and sell it. Most likely you will have to sell the book personally to friends and relatives or through fairs and organization. To do this, short run book printing is helpful because you can order a small amount of books at a time. This helps keep your budget in check and helps with storage.

Short run book printing is also great if you want to publish a few copies of your book to give away to friends and book reviewers, which is strongly encouraged.  Be sure to offer a copy to the local library as well.

For more information on short run books and self publishing, contact The Country Press, Inc.

The Year in Self Publishing - 2012

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 18, 2012

One of the themes of 2012 has without a doubt been the rise of self-publishing.

Regardless of how you measure it, self published books have had a huge impact on the publishing world in 2012. We’ve seen multiple deals where a self-published author was picked up by a major publisher after already banking huge ebook sales. And if you look at the top-selling books of 2012 several of them started out as self-published.

Today we saw another first for self-publishing. A self-published work was named to the best-books of the year list of the highly respected and ultra-tough book reviewer for the New York Times, Michiko Kakutani.

Self-publishing was once “vanity publishing,” something that you did if you just couldn’t cut it with a traditional publisher. And it certainly wasn’t big business. All that’s changed. Self Publishing today is big business, in fact in 2012, it was $100 million.

Short Run Book Printing is Popular Despite E-Books

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 11, 2012

If you are an author and you want to get your new book out there, short run book printing is the right solution.  Despite the rage of e-books, most readers still enjoy a book and short run book printing is still very important.
 
The Country Press can publish your short run book with a full color cover, in either hardcover or paperback, and black and white or full color pages.

More and more authors, self-publishers in particular, choose short run books over traditional printing options. “Short run” simply means small quantities, anywhere from 1-5000 books. For a limited budget, limited storage or unknown or smaller demand, short run books are the perfect solution.

For information on short run books, contact The Country Press.

Why would Self Publishers want a to Use Traditional Book Printers?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 03, 2012

There has been a massive influx of self publishers into the market place. But many self publishers and potential self publishers ask those who have been through the process why they should use a traditional book printing when self publishing.

Well, most authors will tell you that it depends on the book and the platform that you have. There are many genres and styles of books for which authors should seek the help of publishing companies. Especially if a style of book is new to you. You will want that safety net that professional book printing companies have. They won’t do your marketing for you anymore, but they will work with you. They have the ability to open doors that are difficult or impossible to open.

How to Market and Sell Your Book

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 27, 2012

We all know that self publishing is becoming more and more popular. But still, there are questions about it, not to mention, how to market and sell your book. Once you are able to market and sell your book, you will then see a return on your time and effort and money that you have spent on writing your book.

The biggest challenge people face is really not understanding that they’re going to have to market their own book – even if they have a publisher. Publishers can afford to do very little these days to help an author market.

For many authors, it is more the face-to-face, doing book tours and book festivals, signings and friends. Just going and meeting friends. For these events however, you need books to sign and give away. Short run book printing is the solution. For an author on a tight budget, short run book printing, when you can print anywhere from 1-2000 books, helps you manage your money and your storage space.

The Solution is Short Run Book Printing

Joseph Coupal - Friday, November 09, 2012

Short run book printing is the answer for authors and publishers who need faster turn-around or who have a limited budget with which to work. For advanced copies of books or when you only need a small amount of books select a short run book printer.
 
Generally, commercial printers are not interested in printing a smaller quantity of books because they make their money on the amount of books they print. As a result, sometimes using a large commercial printer is the difference between printing and not printing your book.  Therefore,  short run book printers are the solution.

For a smaller distribution channel, smaller budget, or lack of storage space, short run book printers are perfect. For more information, contact The County Press, Inc.

Promoting Self Published Books with Short Run Printing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Self-publishing used to be frowned upon in the publishing world. Distribution was often facilitated by the trunk of the author's car, and word-of-mouth was the only form of publicity. Thanks to ebooks, the internet, and the availability of short run book printing, things are changing. The stigma of self-publishing has diminished, and even previously trade-published authors are giving it a try.

Some very big publishing companies are also getting into the self-publishing game as well. Self-publishing is now big business.

There are numerous places to sell your ebook online-and almost as many platforms. But short run books are another way to get your book out there and in the hands of reviewers and readers. By printing short run books, you can order as many books as you want, with no strain on your budget. Use these books for book signings, book tours and too give away at book fairs and to friends.

For more information, contact The Country Press.
