Before I move onto the all-important one-sheet, I realized I left an important component out of my powerpoint presentation on how to package yourself with class (and this series of posts is based on that presentation).
Every day we make impressions on others. Might be good. Might be bad. But the fact of the matter is, we leave one kind or another on every person we connect with, whether it’s online, in print, or in person.
On Dictionary.com the word “impression” is defined this way:
Noun – 1. a strong effect produced on the intellect, feelings, conscience, etc.
There’s much to be said for fellowshipping with other like-minded people — especially when they are folks who feel called to share what God has done in their lives through the written word. Don’t let this valuable resource lay untapped. If there’s a Christian writers group in your area, it would be worth your time to get involved!
You hear lots on both sides of the fence. Can self-publishing actually help you prove yourself to a traditional publisher and motivate them to offer you a royalty publishing contract?
Well, let me tell you my story for starters.
There are many elements to successfully marketing your book. Marketing becomes even more important when you're self-published. We recommend (and can help implement) a strong digital campaign because it is cost efficient and effective. A video trailer can hook your audience right away!
Writing is far from an exact science and something we're extremely proud of offering at Redemption Press are our professional workshop-style services. One of which is a Manuscript Evaluation.
So you have a manuscript or an idea and you want to know how your book will ever reach an audience. You're asking yourself "How in the world will I ever get published?" Let's take a look at your options and the straight-forward path to publishing offered by Redemption Press.
The Legal World of Self Publishing
Navigating the legal maze of self-publishing is difficult for any author, but Redemption Press has the experience and tools you need to safely publish (and protect) your work.
Copyrights and ISBN Numbers
After spending 25 years in Christian publishing, I’ve seen every kind of snafu, misstep, and botch job when it comes to copyrights and ISBN numbers.
Happy Anniversary Redemption Press!
It's been one successful year since Redemption Press established itself as the premier Christian self-publishing service, filling a void for Christian authors worldwide with unique and attentive services led by Athena Dean Holtz.
I was talking to a long-time author friend a few days ago and she said something that really humbled me. We were just catching up on life face-to-face on Skype, and she looked at me and said “my great grandson finished his Eagle Scout project today, because of YOU.” I felt as though I looked over my left and right shoulder thinking she must be talking to someone behind me, and said… “What? ME?”
I must admit, the fact that we ask you to send your manuscript in (before we tell you how much it will cost to publish with us) could be a scary thing. After all, there are some people out there who might steal your idea and leave you in the dust.
