I wrote the book on simplified self publishing. Now learn to publish your Book alone, get only the help you need to create a quality book with proven self publishing methods and tools, or let Bill publish your book. Keep all rights and profit and even get your own imprint. You can do it all yourself using my book Self Publishing: How To Publish Your Print Book or eBook Step by Step as a guide with detailed instructions and screen shots so you can follow the methods I used to publish more than 20 quality books. But doing everything alone is not for everyone. It's not easy, there’s a learning curve and only you know if you need more guidance to do it yourself or if you prefer to hire someone to do it all or parts for you. No matter what you decide, you don't have to purchase unreasonable and expensive packages to get it done.

Don’t listen to those malcontents who keep knocking self publishers. Of course there are poor quality self published books just like there awful traditionally published books. But your book can be well edited, properly formatted, printed precisely with an excellent cover you’ll be proud to show anyone. That’s the only kind of book I’ve published and yours can be the same.

No matter what level of guidance or assistance you need, I can help with one-on-one personal assistance to do all the work or only the parts you don't wish to handle. You can just submit your completed manuscript and I will take it all the way to worldwide availability.

Or, simply assist you to take it there yourself. The decision is yours. Now you can publish your own book or ebook and sell it worldwide without buying and storing a garage full of books. My help can include one-on-one consulting, tutorials, or using my self publishing workbook. All paths lead to a quality book or ebook with worldwide fulfillment while dealing with only one person throughout the process.

Self-Published Success Stories

Self-publication is how more than a few bestsellers got their start. Everyone knows about lightning-strike blockbusters like The Martian or Fifty Shades of Grey, but you probably don’t know the self-published shelf includes Lisa Genova’s Still Alice; William Young’s The Shack; Richard Paul Evans’ The Christmas Box; Meredith Wild’s Hard Love series; Robert Kyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad; Richard Boles’ What Color Is Your Parachute? and Irma Rombauer’s venerable The Joy of Cooking. These are just the best known. Many more have made their authors sizeable sums and even led to careers.

Still, some people are embarrassed to be self-published. They shouldn’t be. Self-publishing has a long and honorable history. Jane Austin paid for the first edition of Sense and Sensibility. Beatrix Potter did the same for The Adventures of Peter Rabbit. So did Walt Whitman, James Joyce and Marcel Proust. No one would call them literary losers. Nevertheless, the stigma of self publishing persists so we have decided to use the term independent publishing because there is a lot in a name and it may help some feel better about publishing their own book.

A Last Resort?

But self-publishing, or independent publishing as we call it, isn’t a last resort, something for literary losers, people who can’t get published any other way? Hardly. No one knows the exact percentage of manuscripts that make it to print, but knowledgeable observers estimate the odds are many thousands to one. That means a lot of good works go undiscovered.

Sure, everyone wants to be published by a big New York house, but what are the odds. As of April, 2014 available data indicates that well over 1,000,000 books are being published annually. Of those, only a tiny percentage are published by traditional publishing houses. And, that figure is two years old. It probably tops a million by now.

If done professionally, independent publishing can equal and even exceed the quality of traditional publishing. And some, admittedly few, independent publishers have already become millionaires and famous, in some cases receiving substantial offers from traditional publishers because of the fame. So, it would seem that in spite of the implied stigma, the most important thing about a book is still the quality.

How Do You Define Success?

Frankly, if fat royalty checks are all you care about, you may be in the wrong profession. But you know that. And you know why you write: because you love it. Maybe you’re not even interested in commercial success. Maybe you just want something to share with family and friends. Maybe you’ve written a book to enhance your professional reputation or address an issue in your field. Maybe you’ve written a book of local history or a memoir of the time you were in a rock band or ballet troupe or lived in Alaska for a year. If you’re like me you write to share your knowledge and skills with others. The reason you write is personal and that’s good enough.

I Can Help You Make It Happen

Whatever your reason for writing your book, whatever your goal, I can help you realize it. I’m a lifetime entrepreneur who began his first publishing business in 1978 writing and publishing books on housing. Over the years I’ve been a custom woodworker, a homebuilder, ran an 80-person community development department in Tampa, served as IT Manager for the Austin Hyatt Regency for over 20 years and found the time to write 16 books and publish 28.

Not the Biggest (and I like it that way)

My company, Positive Imaging, LLC, is not the biggest  independent publishing house. In fact, it may be the smallest. Sure, we’re in business to make money, but it’s about more than that. I love writing and publishing and helping others to get books published. Personally working with authors is more than a job; it’s a passion. I maintain low overhead and peace of mind by avoiding corporate nonsense. Each year I publish a small number of books with loving care and plan on keeping it that way.

No Publishing Packages

If you browse Authorhouse or Balboa Press or any of the top twenty self-publishing firms, one of the first things you’ll see is a half-dozen publishing packages, a bundle of services, most with a hefty price tag.

I can create a custom package for you but normally I offer a list of services. You choose the help you want. You can save by taking advantage of your skills and I can coach you to help you do more. There’s no pressure, no nudges to get those little extras that bump up the sale. Once we determine what you want me to do I’ll give you a quote geared to your needs.

Why not contact me now at or call me at 512-217-4803. Let’s discuss your book today, without obligation. Before November 10, 2016 is the perfect time if you want Positive Imaging, LLC to handle the entire job for both print and ebook for only $495.00. Contact me now and save.

A good friend of mine remains pessimistic about self-publishing even after publishing his book. I helped him publish, and the book turned out quite good even though it isn't selling well because he hasn’t done any marketing. He is appreciative of my publishing help and the quality of his book but continues to view self-publishing as a stigma. At dinner recently, after complimenting my wife on her children's book, which I published in 2007, he said she needed to find a real (traditional) publisher to market it successfully. I know he meant well but, as publisher of the book, it bothered a little. Since it was high praise for the book and a wonderful evening, I avoided starting a discussion about the merits of self-publishing.

Obviously, my friend believes a traditional publisher would do things with my wife's book that we didn't do, perhaps not realizing that traditional publishers do little marketing for books by unknown authors. After a few preliminary actions, they turn it over to the author to market alone, unless he or she is famous. It’s true that traditional publishers have contacts with Bookstores across the country to place books quickly. What is also true is that all books placed in Bookstores are returnable if they don’t sell promptly, a serious problem for authors who receive advance payments.

If you’re one of those multi-talented authors who would like to try publishing your book on your own, I can still help you. I wrote the book on self publishing and it’s entitled: Self Publishing: How To Publish Your Print Book or eBook Step by Step. You can get a copy for only $19.95 by clicking on the title and you will find complete, step-by-step instructions and I welcome your email questions anytime.
