Author Interview: John Reinhard Dizon

Please introduce yourself.
My name is John Reinhard Dizon, author of The Standard available on Amazon through Tenth Street Press. I've got five previous novels also available on Amazon, so if you like The Standard you'll love the rest! There's also four (maybe six) other books coming out before the end of the year, so there'll be more than enough to go around.

The Pros and Cons of Printing Part Three: Lightning Source

After going through two other publishers for The Check Out, I learned about another company, Lightning Source. I found out about them from the manager of the bookstore that I was selling my books at. I wish I would have known about them sooner, as I could have saved some time and money. I'm sharing them with you today, so that you can see them for yourself.

Author Interview: Scott Skipper

Please introduce yourself.

I am Scott Skipper, and yes, that’s my real name.

How long have you been publishing?

In 1986 or 87 I published a few things but after a year I decided I had best get back to my career in the metal fabrication industry.  Now that I am retired, I have renewed my efforts and have been publishing for about three years.

Promotions Away!

Today, I had the pleasure of appearing on Radio Memphis, and doing a book signing at The Booksellers At Laurelwood. I was beyond thrilled with each experience, and hope that I get to do it again.

The Pros and Cons of Printing Part One: Createspace

If you have spent the better part of a year (or two, or a hundred), there is a part of you that is not going to be satisfied by a digital copy of your book. For me, at least, it didn't sink in that I had published a book until I was holding a physical copy in my hand.

The decision to print copies is not one that should be taken lightly. There are a few reasons to do it, and a lot of others that you shouldn't. I have covered this topic before, but I think I am in a better position to evaluate the publishers at this point. Here are three that I worked with along with their pros and cons.
