TAKING THE CREATESPACE PLUNGE…


NOW IN PRINT!
POSTED BY: Genie Gabriel
Web site: www.GenieGabriel.com

I'm following in Barb Cool Lee's footsteps and taking the plunge into the world of self-publishing. Actually, I'm only dipping my toes in to see how the water is. 

I  have the print rights to my ebooks, so I am self-publishing the print version to one of my books as an experiment. On the surface, using CreateSpace looks like it will allow me to obtain these printed books at a price I can actually be competitive at in-person booksignings. These books arrived early this week and the quality is good! 

The first test of this will be an event with forty authors at the Salem Library Authorama on Saturday, September 28 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The event is free to the public and will be held at the main library, 585 Liberty Street SE in Salem. I'd love to see you if you can make it. 

With print books, I'll also try a contest on Goodreads, where I am slowly finding my way around. 

I'm also offering a print copy of this book as a prize in an online party I'm participating in this week at The Romance Studio. They are giving away many prizes, so if you're interested the event is being held at <http://trsparties.com>. Over 125 authors are participating with books ranging from sweet romances to triple-XXX rated. Stop by if you'd like to and sign up for prizes and read excerpts of lots of books. :)

Of course, offering my book in print is part of my marketing and promotion plan to let as many potential readers as possible know about what I write. I love the convenience of ebooks, but discovered I'm still excited about holding a physical book I wrote in my hands. Yes, part of it is ego. However, it's also a way to meet the desire of readers who may also like the experience of reading a physical book. 

I'm excited and looking forward to seeing how having affordable print books affects sales of all my books.

From the first time Sadie’s eyes met those of Brody McKenna in the hot Sierra Madre Mountains, theirs was a potent attraction—not gentle, slow, and easy, but hot, hard, and all-consuming. The daughter of a dysfunctional family, Sadie had dreams no man could wrench from her with hot sex and an all-consuming passion. She’d challenge this alpha male with all the strength she possessed. But her red hair, fiery temperament, and indomitable spirit obsessed Brody...and he knew he had to find a way to show her he was more than he appeared and convince her to make a life with him.
