Short Run Book Printers - When You Need Fewer Professionally Printed Books

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, August 07, 2012

When you order a small amount of printed books from a professional printing company, you are placing a short run book order. Short run book printing is essential to self publishers so they can promote their book and sell their book.

Publishing companies generally only print 5,000 copies or more at a time in order to make a profit. Therefore, it is important to find a publishing company that specializes in short run books.
For self publishers, or for advance copy books, short run book printing is relied upon to bring books to market. Short run book printing allows for more inventory over print on demand at a price that a self publisher can afford.

Short Run Book Printing Helps Authors Promote Their Books

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Short run book printing is the perfect way for authors and publishing companies to promote their books. Short run books are perfect for self promotion: print from 1-1000 of your newly published books and use them as giveaways, for book signings, and send them to reviewers.

Through the Taleist survey of self-published authors, those authors who want to succeed, however they are published, must be willing to do at least some of their own promotion.

Indeed, the Taleist survey of self-published authors showed that book promotion does work:

“The authors who did best, however, did everything except pay for reviews: They gave away review copies, submitted their books to book review bloggers and the mainstream press, sought popular reviewers on Amazon and asked their readers through email lists etc.”

The way to sell you book is to get reviews; you get reviews when people read your book. This means promoting your book. Short run book printing allows you get it in front of friends and family, book bloggers and reviewers, and even random strangers on the internet.

Whether you do that via social media, or emails, or giveaways, you have to promote your new book. There’s just no way round it.

Can You Make Money Self Publishing?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Finishing your novel is just the first hurdle. Finding an agent or publisher willing to read your work and have it published is an even bigger challenge.

But do you even need a publisher? Here are a few comments about self publishing which is becoming an increasingly popular option.

Who's making money?

Probably the most successful of the self publishers to date is Amanda Hocking.

She wrote 17 novels around her day job but they were all rejected by publishers. So, in spring 2010 she began to self-publish them as ebooks. Less than a year later she'd sold well over a million copies and earned around $2 million.

EL James, author of Fifty Shades of Grey, took a slightly different self-publishing route. She paid for hardcopies of her work to be printed through a small Australian press. Yet now her trilogy has sold more than ten million copies worldwide.

These two self-publishers have turned their rejected novels into life-changing sums of money. But since their success, both have chosen to write through established publishing houses.

That suggests that the big money is still made by having the support of an editor, publicist and major book retailers, all of which are only really achievable with a publishing house.

How much does self-publishing really earn?

Of course, these are the biggest successes and suggest that everyone could do the same.

The writers' hub surveyed over 1,000 self-publishing authors and found that the average earnings are around $10,000 a year.

That's not a ton of money. But some things are worth more than cash for many authors.

You should choose to self publish through a proper and reputable publishing company. It helps to have support editing and designing your book as well as paying for the hard copies of your book to be printed.

Where do you start?

Okay, so you've written a book and you're ready to publish. What do you do next?

Publishing services for authors are available, and they will even help you design your cover.

Of course, simply making your book available is only the first step. You'll be competing with hundreds of thousands of other authors, so how you promote your work is key. So how do you market your masterpiece?

The most successful self-publishing authors use blogs, Twitter, Facebook and other social platforms to advertise their book.

You can also find plenty of tips on self-publishing sites and in forums, but social media is the best platform, as you can create a buzz around your book.

Short Run Books Save Publishers Money and Time

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 03, 2012

As a short-run book printer, The Country Press specializes in small quantity printing orders for publishers, authors, industrial firms, universities, and others.

Because digital book printing makes it easy and economical to print and bind as little as one copy of a book at a time, The Country Press can serve a new, growing market, authors who publish their own books. For publishing companies, digital printing means that books never need to go out of print. For universities, it means that college textbooks can be constantly updated, and custom editions can be regularly distributed.

Publishers also can save on delivery costs because of the shipping and support services and turnaround time The Country Press can offer.

The future of printed books lies in selling fewer copies of more titles, and The Country Press is well positioned to serve the book publishing market. They can also assists publishers in converting, formatting, and delivering their book content as e-books.

Self Publishing is Often the Best Option for Authors

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 26, 2012

In the past, the general feeling towards self publishing was leaning toward negative. There was, and still is in some cases, a certain level of trepidation when approaching a book that has gone straight from the author to the consumer, skipping the middle man entirely.

Mainly, this negativity stems from the belief that authors opt to self publish if they have been unsuccessful with traditional publishers. But today, this is less true as self-publishing has gone from the last option to the best option.

For one thing the book market has been on a steady decline with the revolutions of the technology market, and one of the developments that has kept reading relevant is eBook readers.

With e-books potentially leading the market from now on, traditionally published and self-published writers are on a level playing field.

In such a case, self publishing can hold many advantages above traditional publishing; a larger margin of the profit will make its way to your pocket for one thing, and there's also a certain level of freedom that accompanies managing your own book publishing.

Self-publishing allows book writing to be approached on a more personal level, even if the books aren't likely to achieve commercial success, authors can still connect with an audience on a much smaller scale.

If you, as an author, find yourself opting for or leaning toward self-publishing, contact The Country Press.
