Title: I want to write a book
Post by: Bigleyj on July 03, 2018, 06:38:35 AM
Hi All,

I've decided that I want to write a book about the first 3 1/2 years of my experience with Sjogrens.  The good, bad and ugly.

What I want to do is format it a bit like a diary. I want to sell it and after covering printing costs donate the proceeds two ways
, half to Sjogrensworld and the other half to my workplace which is a not for profit community centre (and we are struggling financially).

Any thoughts? I think printing will cost approx $5 per book and thinking of selling for $15 per book. Australian $.

Keep smiling
Sjogrens Jo ☺

Why not sell it on Amazon as an e-book?

I had looked into Self-Publishing a book quite a few years ago and for printing I don't remember how much it cost, but I do remember there were minimum quantities and it seemed expensive.  Maybe things have changed now, but now with Amazon and digital books it's probably a lot easier than having a physical book printed.

Although there's something about having that hard copy...  ;)
