New book.

Post  Guest on Sat Feb 04, 2017 9:22 pm

Hi all, just thought it was time that I gave members that are interested an update on my new book Bush Redemption. Yes I have listened to thoughts on the book cover, so the toad with the gold has gone. Anyway those that read Blood Gold Revenge, I hope you enjoy the sequel Bush Redemption, should be ready in about a month. Smile And thanks for the posters that contributed with some sayings awhile back on one of my threads, some have been included in this book Very Happy Burnie I have not forgotten you mate, as you were the highest bidder at the bash you will get yours before they go on sale. Very Happy Cheers Dave.

Hi Redfin, thanks mate. Yeah started up our own company Blood Gold Publications and Productions, so we won't get shafted like we did when the other publisher we had our first book with went bankrupt. Smile

Mrs Redfin and I self published nearly a decade ago now.
I prepared the pdf in the printers requirements, which was a big learning curve.
Then the cover, spline and rear cover took me 2 weeks and many, many photographs till I got it right.

First run was 3,000 books @ $3.50 each. Sold for $20 plus $ 2 postage.
Second run another 3,000 @ $2,10 each. Sold at same price.
Third and final run was 5,000 @ $0.95 each. Sold at $20 including post.

All sold within 3 months but we had good exposure ie; middle pages of Sunday Herald Sun [body and soul] nationwide,
local press as well as a segment on A Current Affair.
Pity the ebook format wasn't around then.

We did our mail orders ourselves by hand. We were moving so many per day the Post Office came to us for daily pick ups.
Was a fun time.

No worries Dave.

I appreciate the amount of work that obviously goes into a project like this, let alone looking after the administrative side of things publishers etc..

Looking forward to it  study , but no pressure from here. When your ready will be just fine.  T06

Good luck with it and trust you are keeping well.

Wow Redfin, that's really pumping out the books mate, well done. Very Happy We still pay a company to format the book, edit, front cover design if need. Ebook format is different again, so you have to buy separate isbn numbers. The print on demand is a great bonus these days as they can print out 1 copy or a 1000 depending on what order is placed and they send it out to your client from the printers, which our printer happens to be in Victoria. Yeah have no idea how many physical copies end ebooks of my novel the swines sold before they went broke. Sad
