Self-publishing: Have you tried it?

with 2 comments

by CBC editors

A huge increase in self-published books on P.E.I. has prompted the Island Writers Association to hold its first book fair in a decade.

The association says it needs a venue to showcase the booming self-publishing industry.

“I would say it’s tripled, quadrupled,” said author Julie Watson, who organized the event.

“It used to be that self-publishing was a very expensive venture. It’s not anymore.”

Rebecca Black tried for years to find a publisher but instead of giving up she decided to take a different route — doing it all on her own. Publishing 250 copies of a book costs Black about $1,500.

  1. The writers guild of the Montague library was formed in the fall of 2008. After contributions were written and reviewed at our monthly meetings we thought, why not?

    Two of our members had experience with self publishing and so we decided to take the plunge.

    So eight of us plus one guest writer wrote 50 poems and stories about PEI. We then self published the book with an initial order of 200 books which have sold out over the summer. We have since restocked with another 100 books.
