Short Run Books for Self Published Authors - MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, August 29, 2013

The rapid expansion of the "self-publishing" industry has allowed publishing companies to make remarkably high-quality products, like short run books, available from commercial printing presses available so you can print your book for less.

Self-Published authors can make use of short run book printing in order to promote their newly released or soon-to-be released book. The only way to sell your book is to promote your book. You can do this by getting people talking about your masterpiece. Short run book printing allows you to print a smaller quantity of books, from 11- 5000, for you to give away, bring to book signings and fairs and, to sell.

Short run books can be handed out to readers in exchange for book reviews. Reviews are one of the best ways to increase your book sales and rank. There are also groups on Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn for authors who will review one anothers books. Join these, participate, and ask for reviews. You’ll need to give away copies of your book to get them.

Short run book printing allows you to NOT spend more than you absolutely have to, to publish your book. Generally, self-published authors budgets are tight, especially when you're just starting out. You just don’t know if or when the book is going to take off. And the more you spend in up-front costs, the more sales you'll need to turn a profit.

On-demand, value-added applications and short run options are moving out ahead of more traditional printing methods for self-published authors.

Benefits of Short Run Book Publishing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 02, 2012

For an organization, publishing company or author that needs to have some books printed, consider short run book printing. Short Run Printing can improve the efficiency of ordering books because it allows authors or organizations to order books in smaller quantities.

The ability to print in Short Runs is largely made possible by the use of Digital Printing equipment. Digital Printing does not have the upfront expenses which makes short run printing less expensive because there are only minimal set-up costs associated with each job.

There are many benefits to short run book printing:

Less money invested – with short run books, your order is smaller so you have less money invested. Because you have fewer books, you turn your inventory faster.

Faster turnaround - Shorter runs take less time to print so you get your books faster.  

No leftover books – with short run books you are ordering fewer books, so you have less chance of having books left over. You also have less chance of being stuck with obsolete or out-of-date books (in the case of text books for example) if the content changes more rapidly than anticipated.

Less Risk - You can update content or make changes to the content or design.

Use less space – When you order less books at a time, you use less storage space. This also reduces handling costs too.
