I used to write paperback books back in the 1990s, and pretty successfully. However, when the Internet came around, it did not take long and I learned that what could be done on paper could also be done digitally. Not only was it easier and cheaper to publish an electronic book, but delivery was so […]
Are you writing books? What format?
Well, in 2015, I decided to start offering paperback books again! I still publish in digital formats, but paperbacks have been good business for me sine 2015 when I decided to get back into the game! Using some of the great Publish on Demand services that are available today it is very easy to do, inexpensive, and satisfies a group of customers who have no interest in eBooks. It is a win-win solution in my book.
Now I offer most of my books in electronic and paper format.

I started selling eBooks many years ago, probably close to 15 years now. For many years, some people encouraged me to sell paperback books as well, but I resisted it. I felt, and always said that paperback was the past, and digital was the future, and I wanted to be part of the future and […]
As I told you yesterday, I had been somewhat disappointed with my sales results on Amazon. First, I did a bunch of Kindle books and sales were steady, but slow. I made a little money almost every day, but nothing like what I expected. Next, I came out with paperback books on Amazon. When I […]
It has been just over a year since I started selling through Amazon. I started out by publishing a few Kindle eBooks in October of 2014. At first, every time that a Kindle book sold, I would be so excited. I sat here in my office with a friend, and he told me that if […]
