Over time, those newsletters grew into 2 books, which are now available in ebook and print. I have a third ebook out soon to be in print and with more coming.
But where Internet played such a vital role in books is this:
I attended my first VA Festival of Book on a Saturday. I was going for "Self-Publishers" day because that's how I chose to build my writing livelihood. I had pretty much conceded that I was going to have to spend $10,000.00 to purchase 5000 of my own books and then figure out how to market them. (Did I have a clue of where $10,000 was coming from, No.)
What happened that day changed my book writing and goals forever. It was there, that I learned about "Ebooks" and Print- on-Demand. I knew heaven had arrived that day.
I knew I could submit my book which was technically a series of newsletters I had already written, to a Print-on-Demand Company for around $200.00. That book would then be available in community bookstores for order, as well as online bookstores.
I left there a changed and happy person ! I published my first print book which was already an ebook, and selling, and that book, "Manifesting 101 & Beyond" has a 5 Star Rating by an Amazon top 500 reviewer. I then put out my 2nd ebook, which then also became my second paperback book. I now have a 3rd ebook due out in print soon, with many other books in various stages.
All Print-on-Demand books were written by me on my computer. I then downloaded book to companies putting it in book form. The Proof came back for me to edit, over computer. Then within a short period of time I had one in my hands, and it was available all over country and Internet.
Things just kept growing. I then began phone and email consulting based on my 2 newsletters & Books: "Manifesting 101 & Beyond", and "17 Seconds to Wt.Loss". The number of participants and rates have increased over months. I have focus groups that I designed based on a "Vortex Application" of which also is an income stream for me. TeleSeminars and tapes, and books-on-tape are scheduled for next 3 months.
Folks buy more books as they participate in other services as well. And now I am entering realm of Radio, where I get to talk about MY BOOKS !
All of this is a pure expression of what I came to do and to offer. I love it all so very, very much.
And it all began when I was out of work, naive about computers, and lastly sending out newsletters when I did not know what I was doing ! (sj)
