The Secret of Kite Hill now available in paperback!
Expand your market reach and make your books available in any (and all) formats that your potential readers might use.
I’m such a Kindle fan these days that I don’t even want physical books any longer–they just take up space on my shelves. Space that I don’t have and don’t want to give up.
But don’t forget: not everyone is like you. You are not your only customer.
But I’ve had requests for paper or printed versions of my books and I didn’t have them available. I finally got The Secret of Kite Hill up on CreateSpace and in paperback form.

I was inspired to get the print version up after we just got the second book up in the Li & Lu series on April 1 (The Secret of Markree Castle is now available on Amazon and will be available in print as soon as, uh, we get it up there).
I specifically remember that I started the CreateSpace process a few months ago, but got bogged down when there were more steps than I was ready for at that time. It probably has something to do with the idea that I no longer really buy physical books, so I figured, “Why bother?” But of course, that’s limited thinking.
But now that The Secret of Markree Castle is out, I want to actually, duh, you know, try to promote the books. So I should make sure they’re available in channels that I might not use myself, but others would. So, today, this is one: CreateSpace for a printed book. Next up? Audio version, how about over on Barnes & Noble for the Nook users. Let’s see, what else?
Exactly. That’s how I have to be thinking from here on out. I’m ready.
