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.

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.

Self Publishers Make Money

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 29, 2012

To celebrate ten years of the self-publishing business, there are some interesting sales statistics exploring self publishing over the last ten years.

All publishers should be aware of the growing business of self-publishing.

Bob Young, CEO of a self publishing website had this statement: “There has often been a stigma placed on self-publishing that says the self-published author doesn’t make any money – that they won’t be successful. In our ten-year history, we have paid out over $36 million dollars to our self publishing authors proving that this stigma is outdated. It is now easier than ever to sell works in all sorts of formats, in all sorts of markets, on all sorts of devices, in some cases instantly. Publishing is changing. The concept of a book is changing.”

Statistics on the last 10 years of self-publishing from just one company:

  • $36+ million earned by self publishers on a self publishing web site, $1.3 million of which was earned by the top 5 sellers.
  • 45% of fist time authors published a second book
  • 1.9 million+ registered buyers
  • 677,403 published E-books
  • USA published 949k books
  • 56% of authors earned over $25,000 - 28% earned over $50,000 - 15% earned over $100,000
  • 100,000+ titles on premier retail channels like


Self Publishing Gets Your Story Told

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 29, 2012

Got a story to tell, a biography you want read, a cook book to share? There's a self-publishing service for you.

The Country Press will help you make a book. We provides hands-on custom service, and we are designed to ease, streamline and speed up the self publishing process. We will take you through the process step-by-step.

Self publishing grew out of what was once called vanity publishing - small private printings geared for friends, family and professional colleagues. With readily available technologies for making books emerging in tandem with online markets for selling books, self-publishing has become a great way for self publishers to get their books out there. Self publishing is creating a huge number of additional authors who want to be heard.

Self-publishing inverts the longstanding publishing model: Where authors have traditionally been paid by publishers. Have you got a book you want published, contact us.
