How Would You Like Your Really Terrible Bible Stories Served Up?

Who would be interested in paperback copies of Really Terrible Bible Stories volumes 1 and 2? I’m trying to determine if it’s worth our time to make them available in dead tree editions.

Also, right now, they’re exclusively available through Amazon. Are there many people still using Nook? Would you want them available on that platform? Any others I should be looking in to? I want to know all the best ways to provide you with the most terrible stories!

    For what it’s worth, I have never (and will never) spent a cent through Amazon. They are the biggest enemy of real brick and mortar bookstores. I have bought a very few ebooks direct from author or publisher, but not from Amazon or B&N.

    I buy ebooks for personal use, and treebooks as gifts. So sure, I’ll be happy to pick up a paperback version of Really Terrible Bible Stories. But I’m holding out for the Numbers edition, for its whimsical folk cures, and head-splodin’ potential to forced birthers.

    I love trees – and also books.

    Reading in hard copy is my thing so, yes, please.

    (I do revegetation work too. Planting new local native trees,shrubs, grasses, herbs, etc ..)

    I’ve forgotten why, but I’m guessing this is going in your spam folder. Nevertheless:
    Have you considered publishing through I’ve not done due diligence on this tax affairs or staff conditions, but they’re not Amazon, and you distribute your books through them entirely free. Your ebook version can be out instantly and they’ll handle all the e-commerce side of it (obviously taking a cut), PLUS if you can take the time to format the file properly they’ll print-on-demand as many dead-tree copies as people want to buy, and no more. I’m not connected with them in any way beyond being a satisfied customer – two books I’ve put out through them have sold about 900 copies. And if you really need to, a book put through Lulu can be made available through Amazon as well (although you’ll make less per copy as Amazon also take a cut, predictably. You can, however, differentially price your book so that it’s more expensive via Amazon, so your cut remains the same.)
    Hope this information is of interest.

    As a satisfied owner of both ebooks (and planning to buy e-Leviticus) I say, yes, you should make paper editions available. They may not be big money-earners for you, but they circulate in ways the e-ditions can’t. They can be gifted as @thebookofdave notes. But also: they can be left at Little Free Libraries, laundromats, and other take-one-leave-one spots. They can creep their insidious, heretical little selves, ever more scruffy and dog-eared, from reader to reader leaving a trail of doubt behind. I can quite imagine them being passed around by sneaky home-schooled kids and evangelical college students.

    Re publishing platforms, I’ve used Lulu and Blurb in the past few years, but my choice right now would be LeanPub. Low-friction to upload your book, and 90% of the purchase price comes to you.

    I’ve collected my really terrible bible stories through amazon ebook. However, I like treebooks as well & would like to purchase in that form. (I like the earlier comment of the treebook subversively sowing doubt as it is passed on.)

    I still maintain a paper library, because love. I have, however, given up new mass market paperbacks for e-books. If they’re to be quality softcovers or hardcovers, I’d definitely be interested (especially if I can add them to my signed-copies case). :)
