Don't Get Caught With Your Skirt Down
What a great title for a book! This author went for publishing on CreateSpace.com (Probably the cheapest POD company in the world) which is something I had just finished recommending to a consulting client, to getting a book deal with Simon & Shuster! About a year ago a writer of ours told me that he put a book through CreateSpace.com and it was a good experience. The company is owned by Amazon, which means that when authors publish there you can integrate with the Amazon marketplace virtually immediately.
Being that I spent over $5,000 on publishing my last book under my own press, the fees here are a little more reasonable. Try a one time fee of $40 and then $5 a year, and that's it! Haha, I really like the way these people operate.
A great video clip of the whole story, and how she wrote it in less than 4 months is here.
Man that is an awesome story, and inspiring to all those that are trying to get themselves a book deal!
