Going from big print run to POD
by Ronda Sarner Anderson
Giraffes Don't Take Baths
For first book, author does huge print run; on second, she goes POD.
I published my first book, "Weezer the Sneezer Finds a Home," with a printer in Minnesota. I still have boxes of books in my den, and I continue to sell them on Amazon, my website and in person.
My second book, "Giraffes Don't Take Baths," is published POD with CreateSpace.
The financial risk this second time around is lower, and the quality seems to be good so far. I was really worried the lead time would be long, but they have been very quick when I place my order.
POD requires a great illustrator and a good graphic designer if you aren't technical when it comes to formating the files. It's not hard, but it takes time to list your book with all of the e-book and printed formats out there.
I had my first book professionally critiqued by Steve B. at this site. He gave me some great advice that I rolled into this second book. I highly recommend him.
