You have a cool idea for a book. Maybe it’s a heart-based idea just screaming to be written. Or maybe it’s a calculated business idea you think will pay off because the time is right. Either way, you know this is the book you want to write. How can you go from concept to in-store sales? And where else can you sell your book? Should you self-publish, e-publish, or look for a publisher? Paul Gerald will share tips from his experience creating two self-published editions of Breakfast In Bridgetown under his imprint Bacon and Eggs Press.
One day Paul Gerald got the idea that writing a breakfast guidebook to Portland would be cool. Two years after publication, the second edition of Breakfast in Bridgetown is slated for October 2010. Paul is also the author of 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles of Portland, Day and Overnight Hikes on Oregon’s Pacific Crest Trail, and Best Tent Camping in Oregon. He is the founder of Bacon and Eggs Press and runs Stumptown Scribes, which sells Portland authors’ books.
