Self-Publishing? Where to Publish

Ruth Ann Nordin and I discuss “Where to Publish” your self-published books. In this video, Ruth Ann Nordin gives you inside tips from a person who has done it her way for several years and has been successful at it.

Janet Syas Nitsick will contribute to the talk but never has self-published. However, she has had experience with subsided presses. Although there are some good ones who actually provide you with editing, professional cover artists and promotion, I would advise against them as a whole. You will not reap your investment. However,  if your goal is to for your own satisfaction or to share your work with others like a ministry. This then could be  a vital option. I have an acquaintance who published her battle with depression only to help others. Isn’t that a wonderful thing?

Ruth has dealt with vanity presses where editing, promotion and other services are not included in your publishing cost and, instead, these extra services are provided for additional fees. Ruth Ann Nordin would not recommend this.

Additionally, Ruth Ann Nordin has a few works with a traditional small press, such as our anthology, Bride by Arrangement (which includes two separate novellas — one written by Ruth and the other by myself). My recent release, Courtships and Carriages, also is through a small traditional press, Parchment and Plume, who I would strongly recommend.

However, do what works best for you. My motto: It’s your work so do it your way. God bless.
