Congratulations, Marianne for the recognition.  Well deserved!

Congratulations, Steve.  What a wonderful opportunity to share your message and to broaden your fan base.  Will the articles appear every Tuesday and Thursday throughout March?

Author Ken Blanchard started a ministry called Lead Like Jesus in the late 90's. They teach leadership, using Christ as the role model. I am honored to be a guest "blogger" during March. My posts will be on their blog site at http://blog.leadlikejesus.org on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about LLJ.

Henry, Thanks for your input.  I was really surprised as I went on the createspace.com how easy the whole process was.  I actually stopped because I thought it was too easy!  As I am having my daughter make the cover photo I really like the options it offers.  As finances at the moment are very limited, this seems like a very good option for putting my book in the hands of God!

I appreciate your support, Kimanzi!

And thanks for sharing your promotional strategy with us.  I will have to consider doing something similar for my next project.

Henry, just got your book! I'll leave a review of course and I shared it on all my social media pages.

Hello Everyone,

For those that downloaded my manifesto, thank you. If you have downloaded it but haven't read it, if you were to leave a review when you're done, I would owe you HUGE!

For those that haven't downloaded it, here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Not-Changing-Life-You-ebook/dp/B007COWSZC/ref...

If you are planning on releasing a book, I think that writing a short little manifesto and making it free for 5 days is an awesome idea. You can have a plug for your new book in the back, you can start to spread your message before the book comes out. By making it free you create a little buzz and make people aware that you're alive and that your work is out there for them.

After the free period ends, I plan on making the manifesto free when someone subscribes to my email list. If you are going to do business online, your email list is very important, those are people that are interested (good leads). Seth Godin calls it "permission marketing".

Thank you to everyone here for all your support and advice!

I am not familiar with Creation House, so I can't speak to their service.  However, if you are referring to createspace.com, I have used them for my print books and have been very pleased with the service they provide.

For me, their service was the perfect blend of allowing me the freedom to do the things I felt comfortable doing (and learning to do) on my own (e.g., layout design and editing) and taking out of my hands the things I didn't feel comfortable doing at the time (e.g., cover design and obtaining my own ISBN).

Using cover design as an example, CreateSpace will allow you to make changes even after you have submitted and "finished" your project.  I originally used the free Cover Creator to make my book's cover.  Just last month, I put a different cover on the book and changed the front matter to credit the cover designer, even though I first published the book 18 months ago.

Hope this helps.  Your book sounds like it will be a blessing to the readers, so I look forward to hearing more about your progress in the near future.

All the best!

Hi Brenda, Keep us updated when your book is close to publishing.
I know people that would benefit a lot from your book.
Comment by Brenda Welc on February 28, 2012 at 3:54pm

Alrighty!  My book is now being edited and my photo is being finished for the cover...what now?  I thought self-publishing was the key and was all prepared to upload it on Create.com, however now I just don't know.  My friend emailed a website for Creation House and I have mixed feelings...Any help?  My book is called Addicted to An Addict and it has been 3 years in the making.  It is a self-help book complete with questions and prayers at the end of each chapter.  It is geared to those who live or have lived with drug addicts and shows how I allowed God to pull me from the wreckage I found myself in.

Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated:)

Be Blessed!
