Fast forward to this year and my latest book, Drive Me Wild: A Western Odyssey. I indie published this book in August, and along with its sales, sales are also picking up for LOS. I asked the publisher if they would release LOS as an e-book and they declined. They returned the rights to me and voila, it has new life. I'm publishing it. I will have copies to sell at my events, it will be available on Kindle and all other e-book platforms, it will be distributed by major distributors and available from your favorite local bookstore. All for around a $250 investment.
Why Indie Publish? You own your rights to your intellectual property. You price your own books. It is fast... you don't have to wait for months or over a year to have your book in print, which accelerates cash flow, and as you can see in this example, there is no obsolescence!
On Saturday, February 9th, I will conduct my class, "Going Indie: An Introduction to Self-Publishing," at the Taos Library. It's $25. Former participants rave that it's best two hours they could have spent. It's a new world out there with the printed word. Come and join the fun!
