In the 1990’s, I developed a method of home publishing my books. There were POD’s back then, but in general, self-publishing was expensive with limited options. Publishing has come a long way since then. Even so, I still enjoy home publishing as a craft. It’s a quick, easy, economical way to whip a book together for friends and relatives. It isn’t an economical way to publish, though, as it’s labor intensive. I sell my craft as “quality handcrafted books” from my website and at craft shows. People usually mistake them for the real deal, missing the appreciation of a craft. Is this a wise use of my time? Probably not, but self-indulgence is tolerable in small doses.
This is my introductory blog in home publishing. I hope other writers will find it helpful and enjoyable. I welcome feedback and questions.
