Rewriting! Ready to Rewrite! (Writing Tip)

Here are more writing tips! Let’s get straight to the point of the pen folks! (No pen intended – I mean, no pun intended) Remember – Never fully rely on spell check as you can see above. Pen and Pun are words. Spell check does not check for “context.” Air and Err are both real words. Now, start writing and good luck! Hope you enjoy a little bit of the humor below. Writing is fun and remember you can write a book! Self-Publish with Instant Publisher!

  • It is incumbent on us to avoid archaisms.

Book Publishing Made Easy… Self Publish!

My manuscript had been done for at least 6-months. It was time to shop for a book publisher. At first, I really thought I would get an agent and hit the big time. After all, my book was and is the best in the world, or so I thought anyway! I learned, however, that no matter how great a book is, getting an agent and waiting to hook up with a giant publishing house is not easy and not fast and frankly can be a nightmare. And bottom line – it may never happen. I chose not to wait! I wanted to see my book in print and on the shelves! I knew it could make money! I had confidence and was willing to invest. I had already invested my heart, emotion and time and it was time to invest money I had budgeted for book publishing. I figured out that self publishing is the way to go!

Visit this book publisher!

Trust me, there are a plethora of self publishers out there, but I found one that really sparked my interest – InstantPublisher.com. They appeared to me to be one of the best book publishing companies out of all of them. I’m going to share what I found out so you fellow authors out there won’t have to go through the torturous “search and wait” that I did!

First of all, with Instant Publisher you can invest a little or a lot. It all depends on your personal budget and also what your desire is as far as “testing the market.” For example, you may have a fantastic manuscript yet you are not sure how you want to begin as far as getting your book out on the retail shelves, so you might want to publish a couple of hundred books first to test the water – see how they sell – then go back and print more. That’s what I did.

For me, I also knew I wanted to be in control and with this self publishing company you, the author, are in total control! Self publishing is the way to go and I’ll tell you a few reasons why. As I said, number one – control. With Instant Publisher you can self publish your book and print as little as 25 copies to begin with. They will print and publish your book, give you an ISBN number, and have your book completely set up and ready for retail shelves or Internet sales. They also have live customer support which I found invaluable! I couldn’t find another book publishing company that offered full-time customer support.

I made the decision to print 300 books to start with. Since then, I’ve had 500 more printed. My sales have been fantastic! And with Instant Publisher, you get nothing less than the best professionally bound bookstore quality book! I even received help with my cover design. I had so many choices and options with Instant Publisher!

Additionally, I found their Web site extremely helpful. It’s an easy read, easy to navigate through and they even offer writing tips! They have a wealth of invaluable information on the Web site that provided me with answers to almost every question I had in my head! Again, it’s an awesome site! I think I visited their Web site almost every day as I was finishing up my manuscript. It was toward the wrap-up of my manuscript that I began to look at book publishing options and that’s when I found Instant Publisher.

Finally, my book has made it into the hands of so many people – I can’t even count. I’ve received great reviews from readers and even personal e mails telling me how much reading my book helped a person. Not only do I feel professionally successful, but proud and thankful that I’ve been able to help other people by telling my story. And yes, I have made money! In fact, I am now about to have another 500 books printed!

I advise any new or established author to use Instant Publisher as their book publisher. Visit their Web site and also see them on Facebook! As Instant Publisher often says, “You can write a book!” And so it goes with Instant Publisher – “Good luck, and start writing!”
