I’m so excited to have my book available in print! You can get a copy here:
Eco Thrifty Living the print version . If you do buy a copy, please please leave me a review. It will help other people make an informed decision about whether to buy it or not. Feedback can also help me improve!
Why in print?
I know some people will ask why I’m doing a printed copy – what about the trees? Well surprisingly to me, most people I have told about my book want a print copy. Lot’s of people don’t have Kindles or e-readers. Also it is a reference book and the print copy has space to make notes in it. Some books do make more sense in print. Yes there is still the issue of the trees, but I’m hopeful that anyone reading the book, will take actions that will offset the environmental impact of the book and then some.
Ok so I’ve made a printed copy, but why Amazon? I have chosen to self-publish through Amazon for a few reasons.
- It doesn’t cost me any money to publish on Amazon, meaning I don’t have any start up costs to worry about. They take a commission on any sales I make, plus they take the printing costs of the book.
- It helps me reach a wider audience than I could reach if I was just selling through my blog
- They print on demand, which means that if someone orders a book, then they print one. There aren’t loads of unsold books sitting in a storeroom somewhere that might get chucked out one day and I like that lack of waste!
- I don’t have to wait for a publisher, which could take a long time and I think the sooner my book can get out there in the world and help people the better!
Want to buy direct?
Still would prefer to buy directly from me? I’m working on that one and will be looking into possibly buying author copies from Amazon to start off with and then depending on sales I will look into more eco-friendly printing methods.
So watch this space to see what happens next. In the meantime, you can get your copy either on Kindle or in print ! Happy reading and I look forward to your feedback on the book!
