Smart Guide To Self Publishing

One of the most effective ways of sharing the Gospel is via the written word. Many of the Apostles, including Matthew, John and Paul, had very powerful writing ministries. Today, with the advent of the Internet and digital technologies, it is easier than ever to self publish. In fact, if you can use a computer you can publish your own book!  

Self publishing provides the following benefits:

  • Gives authors more control over their work.
  • Digital books and print-on-demand (POD) technology allow authors to self-publish with little or no upfront costs.
  • Books get to the press quicker by avoiding the lengthy publication process involved with traditional publishers.
  • Digital books allow for electronic distribution via the Internet and the potential for reaching a much wider audience.
  • Many print-on-demand firms use digital technology to reduce costs and publish high quality products at economical, fixed prices.
  • E-books providing interactive features (such as audio, video, and connectivity to reading groups) are becoming a big part of today’s self publishing revolution!
  • E-readers like the iPad, Kindle, and Nook are creating an increasing demand for e-books and other digital content, especially Faith Based material.  Btw, have you noticed how many people are now reading digital books, including the Bible, on their cell phones?
  • Finally, you can also self publish other digital media including music, videos, and ringtones!

So how do you get started with self publishing? I definitely recommend you check out the following:

Ministry Toolbox Upgrade for 2011

In striving to elevate our ministries in 2011, we first, and foremost look to the LORD for direction and guidance! “Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain.” Psalm 127:1

In addition, we are fortunate to have a number of excellent tools to help us in this endeavor. Here are some incredible resources which are readily available. It is my sincere hope that some of them will help upgrade your ministry toolbox this year!

As we seek to take our ministries to the next level, which tools would you recommend be added to upgrade the ministry toolbox?

Until next time, remember, you can do all things thru Christ Jesus!

Be Blessed!
