Countdown To Publication – One Day Away

12 Sep

The Fifth Step is a controversial novel. I’m a Christian. I believe truth must expressed honestly. As it is in the Bible. The Bible depicts life with no sugar coating. So do I. I fear many will  misinterpret my intentions, because the book is about a preacher who is addicted to pornography. But I will take that chance to present a realistic novel. 

You may ask why I decided to publish with Kindle KDP only and have the paperbacks printed and sent to me exclusively. The answer is simple. Traditional publishing is in the twilight of its years. Small internet and paperback companies and self-publishing is the wave of the future. If it wasn’t, why did Penguin, my former publisher, buy AuthorHouse and a group of other vanity presses.

As authors with a future view, we need to find a method of sifting out great work from poor work. The only way to do this is to price our books reasonably and ask readers to give an honest, unbiased review. That’s what I am requesting of you, my Facebook friends. The E-book is priced at $2.99. The paperback is priced at $14.00, the difference is in the cost of printing and shipping.

I would like to thank J.P. Jones at Paige 1 Media for her wonderful cover design. And I’d like to thank Jason Countryman, at Pocket-Pak Albums for publishing an excellent paperback.

    I think you are 100% correct. Traditional publishing is quickly going the way of traditional photography.
