Pod People - Beating The Print-On-Demand Stigmaby Jeremy Robinson

POD People. Seems like they're everywhere all of a sudden. Thousands of authors are publishing their books via print-on-demand, but only a very small percentage of them find any kind of success. Why? POD People must not only act as author, but also publisher, advertiser, editor, agent and graphic designer.
The sad truth is that many POD People don't know what to do when they're starting out and plunge blindfolded into the publishing world. Most POD books fade into obscurity, selling only a few copies and leaving the author disappointed and in many cases, broke.
This failure is due primarily to the negative POD stigma. Many people avoid self- published books and loathe POD books even more. It's a harsh reality, but there is hope. Bestselling POD author, Jeremy Robinson, reveals how to beat the POD stigma and make your book stand out, covering subjects such as Marketing, Cover Design, Reviews, Self-Evaluation, Interior Design and more...

I read the book in one weekend. I found Robinson's down-to-earth style and honesty addicting. The book is full of useful, hands-on information invaluable for anyone considering publishing by Print on Demand. He tells all from cover design to choosing to right font for your text to marketing to generate sales and recognition. The beauty of this book is that Robinson tells you the pros and cons of POD publishing. When you finish reading it, you know for sure what aspects of POD publishing you should do yourself and what aspects you need to let the professionals do for you. I highly recommend this book as a must-read before you publish anything by POD! Anthony S. Policastro - Novelist
Ever been in the woods, you know, down where it's thick and hard to even walk. Occationally a brush with a briar draws blood. Finally you see a path that someone else has made. For me, Jeremy Robinson blazed that path and I say thank ya. POD People tells what worked for him in his success and what didn't. If you want to succeed, emulate success. Don't miss what he has to say.
I've personally purchased and read this book and after following Mr. Robinson's success with his first P.O.D. novel, The Didymus Contingency, I have to say he has really packed this book full of gold for the would be novelist or self publishing novelist. He keeps the focus, not on gimmicks but on good writing and the production of a professional product and the sound methods that will help it to be noticed in the marketplace. Mr. Robinson balances his advice with wit and whimsy, making the read a quick and enjoyable one!
