On-demand publishing has made it easy peasey to get your book in the hands of people who want it. Createspace.com has a variety of MS Word book templates and sizes you can download in industry standard book sizes.

Publishing your book is a two step process with them. First is to upload your MS Word doc as a PDF, then you'll upload your cover as three images: front, back and spine.

They'll also get you an ISBN so you don't have to buy an expensive block of five ISBNs from whatever company manages that.

They also have a program where they will make your book available to a wide variety of extended distribution partners. Your keep for each sale through Amazon and extended partners is around 1/2 the sale price, which is pretty much an industry standard. In retail sales, it's call the "keystone" or 50% profit margin.

Personally, I do much better selling through my personal website at [link to www.catawbacoops.com.] I get to keep a significantly greater margin on my books, but I have to work harder to sell them as well (Google AdWords, SEO, etc).

i may grab one of your books soon. i've been interested in this for myself but also for others in my area. i think that i could make good money installing coops and gardens (like this type of garden system [link to www.teichgardensystems.com)]
for the Pennsylvania suburbanites.

i'm seeing a rise in interest around here. i figure i could offer both coops and gardens systems, they go hand-in-hand.

i emailed the Tiech people ad they are interested in talking to me about it. i would push their product, yours too.

i'm an excellent marketer and know how to drum up the biz. five years ago i started and now partially own a debt relief company.
this pays the bills but isn't really fulfilling. i'd rather roll up my sleeves by marketing and installing these systems. i sure could get into profiting from panic, fear and DOOM. (lol partially kidding)

Yeah, I'm not the OP... Someone different all together. I also would be interested in what he has to say to see if he can get me a better deal than what Amazon/Createspace is doing for me.

Before you jump into a POD publisher, do your research. Type in Createspace followed by scam or complaints, or check out some of the POD comparison charts, such as [link to www.booksandtales.com]
Know that Amazon owns Createspace, and that most POD publishers make their money by charging fees to writers, and some of these fees are ridiculous like charging to fix a mistake made, not by the author, but by the POD itself. Also, there are very few POD writer success stories.

Being an amateur writer myself, I looked into various venues to publish my writing, including searching for a literary agent (who were mostly looking for vampire romances, ugh), POD, self-publishing and small presses. I ended up going with Smashwords, which is an ebook website, and can format your Word manuscript into several different digital formats and distribute them to all kinds of markets, such as Apple, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Deisel and Sony (and hopefully soon, they'll be adding Amazon as well). They do all of the formatting and distributing FREE and don't make any money themselves until you actually sell books. Sure, its not as satisfying as holding a physical book in your hand, but it is a way to get off the ground.

Know this, success does not come instantly. I only made about $16 bucks from September of last year until May 1st of this year, but I had a marketing budget of about ZERO dollars to work with. From May one up through today, I've already made some gains ($20 or so), and this almost entirely from word of mouth coupled with three novellas I'm distributing free.

Pardon my pic, as I'll admit I am one ugly mofo, but here's a link to my Smashwords page;

[link to www.smashwords.com]

If you have little to no budget, like I did, and are willing to risk one person buying your book and posting it everywhere (the ebooks are DRM free, although you'd be hard pressed to match this kind of publicity), you might want to read some of the info on this site and see if it'll work for you.
