Marion Grace

From the Founder:  Another new experience for me was the journey through publishing, and, like all great journeys, I had guides and help along the way.  I’d like to acknowledge and thank my publishing partners, those who joined me on this journey.

We wanted a high quality book at a good price.  We got that and then some with good customer service as well, from our printer: Bookmasters  Runner-up thanks to high-touch, personalized service was Linda Rice-Bailey at CRW Graphics

Amy and Rob run a small biz that delivers.  They can do as little or as much as you need and don’t try to upsell you.  We highly recommend our eBook Creator: 52Novels

Not a better way to sell it than Gumroad for eCommerce – lowest percentage off the top for a lot of service, CLEAN site and they are EASY to use.  They are almost too good to be true on all fronts; we love these guys.

Now working with Lightning Source as our Distributor.  Print-On-Demand (POD) in U.S., U.K. and Australia is helping us reach others around the world.

Blogs and articles about various services to consider: Andrew Hyde  and  David Carnoy  Lately we’ve become avid followers of Joann Penn’s blog The Creative Penn and LOVE Guerrilla Marketing for Writers which provides a ton of good ideas.

Shipping for Marion Grace is via UPS and USPS because when they deliver here, they bring biscuits for the dog and we love dog people.  For big loads (like the half-ton book order) at a great price, we like Ward Trucking.

In Australia: Sandra Wigzell from Dymock’s North Sydney is a great teacher!  Be sure to “like” them and even better, to buy from them.

New to me: the primer for anyone who wants to self-publish (and isn’t afraid to get their hands in it).  Everything you wanted to know. And then some.
