Self Publishing: How Many Books Do I Print?

If you’re considering self-publishing for the first time, there are a lot of questions in your mind about the do’s and don’ts. When it comes to the question of printing physical books, there are many different opinions on the right way to approach this, but your answer lies within yourself. What works for one person may not work for you, so let’s take a look at the factors that are going to influence your decision.

First of all, what are your self-publishing goals? How much effort are you really going to put into selling books? If you’re on the fence about this, start small. You can probably offload a few hundred books relatively easily, without touring or pushing online marketing. But if you’re in it to win it you’ll want to consider this; prices drop as you order more books. As with all things, buying in bulk is going to save you money in the long run. If you’re buying 500 copies of your book, followed by another hundred and then a few hundred more, you’ll spend more which will cut into your overall profits.

What Every Writer Should Know About Galley Copies

You might think that the term ‘galley’ is simply a boating term, but you don’t have to grab an oar to launch yourself towards success in your writing career. A galley copy of your book is a copy intended to give away for free. Galley copies are also known as ‘advanced reader copies’. They offer a sample of your work, which you strategically hand out to publishing buffs and industry insiders in order to create buzz around your book.

 

Galley copies are meant to drum up excitement for your content, and as such they need to be published well in advance of your release date. The idea is not to strive for perfection; your editing may not even be finished when these copies are produced. That’s not the point. The point is to look past what is lacking in layout and see what you have to offer.

5 Concrete Ways to Curate Your About Page

 

As a writing coach and mentor to entrepreneurs and creatives, I’ve learned that most people would rather be stuck in a snowstorm than write content for their website—especially if it’s about themselves. “I’m a really bad writer,” or “I really hate writing about myself,” are just two of the things I hear small business owners routinely say. Yet, in most cases I’ve found that these statements are rarely the truth.

In other words, the person who says they’re a “really bad writer” is typically a decent writer, yet perhaps she was told as a child that she wasn’t any good, or maybe she had a language teacher in school who embarrassed her when he asked her to read a poem she’d written in front of the class.

And, what about the entrepreneur who doesn’t like writing about himself or herself?

I think that part of the reason is because it forces entrepreneurs and business owners to take a good, long look at their motivations for starting their business in the first place. No easy task!
