Discovered! More Self-Publishers Hit the Big Time

Thinking 1 Comment »

Here are a handful of interesting self-publishing success stories in a recent Publishers Weekly article. I love reading real-life stories of the process people went through to write and publish their books. Right now I don’t have any plans of signing on with a publishing house, but the last sentence of the first story is what scares me:

When administrative and distribution work became too onerous, however, Tillman was ready to find a publisher.”

Right now I’m just trying to take one step at a time, but we’ll see what the future holds!

You Would Think I Haven’t Done Anything for a Month…

…but such is not the case. 🙂 I’ve just been so hard at work that I’ve been negligent in posting updates for the past month or so. Sorry! Here’s a quick list of some of the things I’ve been working on:

  • Implementing the editors’ suggestions and marks into the final manuscript.
  • Meeting with various people who are helping with the project – editors, a marketing advisor, my interior page designer, etc.
  • Gathering pre-publication endorsements.
  • Creating a Pajama School Fact Sheet.
  • Designing a new website/blog for Pajama School (soon to be live!).
  • Opening a bank account for Sibro Publishing.
  • Opening a PayPal account for Sibro Publishing (I’m linking to it in case you want to make a donation to the cause 🙂 ).
  • Setting up an Amazon Advantage account so that I can sell Pajama School on Amazon.
  • Acquiring a business license from our city.
  • Thinking and praying a lot!
