The Book Project That Became A Nightmare
In the early ’90’s, I dreamed about writing a book. In 2005, I was struggling to make that dream come true. Frustrated by a lack of material from which I could do my research, my dream had become a long, tedious project. In short, it was a nightmare.
To compound the problem, I was a stay at home mom of three small children and thus, money was always in short supply. I remember breaking down and crying one winter because I didn’t have just $13.00 to buy my two year old daughter a warm coat.
No matter how frustrated I was with my book project, I was determined to see it through. That book was going to be my way out of financial despair. Or so I thought.
A Better Idea
After several months of working on my book, I came up with an idea. Instead of writing a book, which was taking an eternity and getting me nowhere, I decided to write something smaller – a booklet.
I knew that it would cost me far less to produce a booklet and I could get it to market much faster – meaning I would profit from my efforts much sooner. What I didn’t realize, however, was just how fast everything would happen once I set things in motion and wrote that first booklet!
A 600,000 Copy Deal
One booklet quickly turned into two, and today I am the author of six booklet titles as well as the owner of a publishing company called Up & At ‘Em Publications, through which my titles are published.
My booklets sell to a variety of markets, including both the business and medical communities. When my third title was published, one company told me they wanted to purchase 600,000 copies to distribute across the United States inside their product packaging. And that’s just the beginning of what’s possible in this little known publishing arena!
