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.
