Vincent’s Death: Accident or Suicide?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

At last! Affordable International Media Mail

An innovative company offers great rates for the mailing of books to virtually anywhere.

Publishers, book distributors and authors have long been exasperated by the costly international postage rates offered by the United States Postal Service.  Try sending, for example, a book that weighs 2+ lbs to the United Kingdom or to one of the countries in the European Union and you can expect to pay over $30.00!  Books to Australia or New Zealand can be over $40.00.  These high rates discourage global sales because most consumers refuse to pay shipping that is often higher than the price of the book itself.

The Importance of Professional Packaging

ColomPac® book mailers
One can’t say enough about the importance of how you package your book. In fact, how virtually any product is received by the consumer says a lot about the integrity of the supplier. Think of Apple®. When you buy an iPhone®, iMac® or any of the company’s products, it is always packaged beautifully in well-designed boxes. Everything is thought out and presented with such high standards that it might as well be an item of jewelry. That’s how Apple® thinks of their products; they’re like little gems. And, after all the work you will have put into your book, you too will think of it as a little gem. So see your book project >>>

It seems reasonably straightforward these days to write and publish your own book.  Simple print-on-demand solutions, like those offered by Amazon’s Create Space®, are not quite as simple as they seem.  While these types of production tools have value for certain types of books, they have their limitations.  Try a cost analysis with Create Space for a full-color book on coated paper, for example. >>>
