Printing Books Exposition


From the dawn of humanity until 1900 1 million books were published.

Fast forward until the year 2018.

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) published 3.2 million books in 2018.


That is a vast increase in knowledge but it also a vast increase in dreck.


Not everything that should be published is and everything that should be published may not be.


There are still gatekeepers in the system but in the self-publishing game it is usually money or sales that limit some books.


Don’t be hornswoggled into publishing your book because you have money, time and put in the effort.


Get a sense of whether people will buy the book.  Use a writers group or association or club.  Not just your family and friends unless they have some credentials of some type to be able to determine if it is a good book or not.
