After over 18 months of working on a book about coffee which is an ultimate coffee buyers guide and brewing manual. I have gone self-published. As an author of the first book, it's not easy to get things started. And more importantly to pursue a goal of this project to make it available to all those coffee lovers who love to take a peek and see why coffee is such a big thing in these days.
I have self-funded this project so far spending about £350 for Professional editing and draft copies of the book to ensure everything is in place.
At this current moment, I have no money left to continue to self-publish this book (ordering more copies and work on raising and awareness of it)
I'm considering to work with publishing a company and take some weight off my shoulders and make this book available worldwide. I have been talking to one of the publishers who is convinced that this book has a great potential worldwide. And have come up with a proposal for 'essential publishing package' with %25 off of £599.25 Which includes marketing and distributing.
Its the best proposal I have got so far and I love to go with it.
In case I don't reach this financial goal, raised funds will be used to continue to self-publish this book, using it for advertisement and producing more copies.
