FORT COLLINS, Colo., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "The three main reasons authors are self-publishing is that they have complete control over their work, the production time is much faster, and they stand to make more money," says Floyd Orfield, owner of A Book's Mind and author of, The Little Zombie That Stood. "You're starting to see previously published authors and celebrities go the self-publishing route because they already have an audience. New authors are going the self-publishing route because it's much faster and they can generate a buzz for their book while making money."
Last year, A Book's Mind published the second edition of Davy Jones' autobiography, They Made a Monkee Out of Me, which quickly jumped up Amazon's best sellers ranking. The first edition was actually a self-published book before self-publishing was even a thing. Davy Jones, the iconic front man for the pop rock group and co-star of the TV series, The Monkees, created his own publishing house, Dome Press, and released a limited number of books because, "we have total creative control over every stage," stated Alan Green.
John Hewitt elected to go the self-publishing route with his book, iCompete, which teaches his extraordinary strategy for winning. John Hewitt is the founder and CEO of Liberty Tax Service, founder of Jackson Hewitt, and a former H&R Block Regional Director. Since publishing his first edition book with A Book's Mind in 2015, iCompete has been picked up by a traditional publishing house.
"That's the great thing about self-publishing, it's like going into business for yourself. Not only do you have complete control of how your book turns out, but you also own the rights to your book. If a traditional publishing house sees that your book is having some success it can really help you negotiate a better book deal if you decide to go that direction," says Floyd Orfield.
Babette Hughes, a previously published and established author, has decided that publishing with A Book's Mind is the best direction for her new book, Searching for Vivian, due to be released February 2016. A Book's Mind publishes a wide variety of books and can help you go into business for yourself. They've published full color cookbooks like the zany, People Eating Tasty Animals, by Robert Arlen, children's books like The Little Zombie That Stood, to epic trilogies like the Anahera Daniels series by J.D. Scott. Other authors, like Cash Matthews and his book, Money University, or Becky Smith's book, Designing Your Ideal Life, use A Book's Mind services to strengthen and market their business and speaking engagements.
