Sad news regarding my forthcoming book

Posted 08-28-2010 at 09:36 PM by cricket1961

Hello All

Despite a ton of work that went into creating my book and delivering what I believed people wished to see and learn about, there was a vast difference of opinion with the publisher.

So.... due to Creative differences I cancelled the contract with the publisher and am now preparing to find a new publisher or will be self-publishing.

If you have placed an order(and apparently a huge number of people already did.... my apologies to all of you!) please cancel the the order.

As soon as I have new info about this I will post here.

    I hope things work out well for you. I must also say thank you for letting those of us who ordered the book know about the change in plans. I will be among the first to order one when a new publication date is scheduled.

    I think most of people here respect your work and will be more than happy to pay for downloadable PDF file - and you will be able to save a lot of money which you would spend on the printed version.
    I believe the time when creative people will be able to publish their work independently is here and those "smart" people from publishing houses will be looking for new job ...

    Best Regards,

    Did you ever get the DVD finished? You could also do a self publish using Blurb or some other publishing house. Good luck.

    How about going it alone and doing a downloadable pdf book from your site? Also, if you ever do a DVD - I'm ready with my credit card!

    Your work is inspirational. Thank you for sharing your methods.

    Been there, done that. I went with Self publishing using Got an ISDN number, offered hard copy and ecopy. The PDFs were more popular by far and my take of the PDF was like 90% vs. 60% or so for a dead tree. In the end, the PDF outsold dead trees about three to one. Now days I would redo it all to ePub format to support iPads and like correctly.

    How about selling a PDF version?
