Writing a book takes a great deal of discipline. That’s a given! But the rewards are beyond imagination!

But once your book is complete, the actual work begins. Creative Impressions Press has been designed specifically to help you cover all the bases. For instance, did you try to find the Advanced Book form to send into the Library of Congress? It’s next to impossible to find. So I put the .pdf version on the site so you won’t have to spend 3 hours looking for it.

Did you know that Amazon has a Print on Demand (POD) press in-house? They are now trying to discourage independent published authors from getting their books onto Amazon. CIP has found a great resource that not only gets your books on to all the online stores but offers POD services for an average of $5 for soft cover and $10 for hardcover plus perform order fulfillment for the online stores.

There are 14 pages of great information to stimulate your marketing plan. The details of each of the areas are specific enough you’ll understand how to look like an expert, even if you’ve never had experience in doing your own Blog, Podcasts, Teleseminars, Affiliate Program, Membership site or any of the other 12 marketing concepts.

Writing is a passion

Writing is a passion . . . writing is a form of self-expression . . . . writing inspires!

Now, for the first time in the history of passionate, self expressed and inspirational authors, there is finally a way to earn more money from our intellectual property than either the publisher, Amazon or Barnes and Noble!

This is a revolutionary tactic for authors! It is time to reap the rewards from our hard earned efforts!

What lead me to this? I have taken more classes in the past 5 years and spent more money trying to figure out how all these gurus are making the mega bucks, and finally, I got it!

And now, you’ve got it!

So, the first step is, take one hour and outline your book, about 15 to 18 chapters, and then list 12 to 15 questions or ideas for each chapter. Viola! you have your book! It takes 2 1/2 hours to write a chapter. Do not edit or read it while you’re writing, then even if you only write once a week, 15-18 weeks later, your book is finished! The next step is the editing and I have found that friends give me the best input for the first rounds of editing.

If you already have your book and would like to find out how I am printing my hard cover books for $6/book, let me know!
