My Christmas Book

Last year – 2010 – I wrote a little Christmas book for children, The Adventures of Chris Mouse. Recently it appeared on Kobo Books recommended list.

Yahoo! (Cheering, that is!)

Take some time to read it and let me know what you think.

Thanks.

New Books

Well … not exactly new books. I have listed my books, with links on each tab:

Devotionals and Meditations
edited from original manuscripts by Wayne Tilden

Letters From Bethlehem

The Adventures of Chris Mouse

These Are the Candles

I’d appreciate you reading, commenting, and even purchasing some – or all – of these books. I would told – and read in numerous places – that one of the best ways to let people know that you’re published is to blog about it.

So let’s just think of this post as “good marketing”.

E-Books and Self-Publishing

There was a time when I believed the only “real” books were printed on high-quality paper with a nice crisp cover and an unmistakable fragrance. A “real” book was the only kind of book I wanted to see my “Great American Novel” appear. Then I discovered BookRix.

Through BookRix I could publish on-line; which was free to produce and free to read. For a couple years I was able to get my feet wet “publishing and marketing” these books, at no cost to anyone, but no income to me. Then I discovered Smashwords.

A number of colleagues on BookRix recommended Smashwords as an excellent platform to publish quality e-books at no charge to the author. Their Stlyle Guide is very detailed, but if it is followed exactly, one can produce a great-looking and quality e-book. In fact, Smashwords formats the final book into most major platforms, including Kindle, Nook, and Sony. Of course they can also be downloaded in EPub format for other platforms; Adobe Reader, Kobo, and many others.

Of course the pricing and marketing is still up to the author, but Smashwords has a “Premium Catalog” of titles which is distributed industry-wide.

So far I have published two books under my Write On! Publishing name. One is a children’s Christmas story, The Adventures of Chris Mouse. The other is a collection of my mother’s devotional writings; Devotionals and Meditations, by Jewel Tilden.

(Maybe this is a shameless way to promote my books, but it’s also good advertising.)

If You’ve ever considered self-publishing your work as an e-book, I recommend Smashwords. I’m sure you’ll be pleased with the outcome.
