The Publishing Game:
Publish a Book in 30 Days

A day-by-day plan to self-publishing your own book. (Do you really want to invest $3,000 on self-publishing without this $20 comprehensive course?) In this book you’ll learn how to:

  • Set up a one-person publishing house in your own home
  • Get an eye-catching cover that jumps out at bookstore browsers
  • Print your book for just $2-$3 a copy—and sell it for $25
  • Create a website that takes orders from buyers worldwide, while you sleep
  • Sell to online bookstores like Amazon
  • Sell your book to bookstores, libraries, and beyond

This book includes all the details you need to publish your book yourself—from your own home—your own way.

Don’t miss the chance to get exclusive information not found elsewhere:

  • How to get Library of Congress CIP cataloging—even though they don’t like to give it to self-publishers
  • When you might want to consider Print-On-Demand—and why you absolutely shouldn’t consider it for all other projects
  • What to do about distribution to bookstores and libraries—and what not to do

256 pages. $19.95 (the price of four coffee frappucinos.)

“These 30-day books by Fern Reiss offer a viable way for people to complete what may appear at first glance to be an overwhelming job, one few people would otherwise tackle. By breaking down time-consuming, complicated processes into simpler discrete steps that can be completed in a day, Reiss has opened up the world of writing and publishing books to people who have full time jobs or other responsibilities that give them little free time. So even people who work full time can publish a book in 30 days—although it might take 30 Saturdays to do it. Just think: If you write just one page a day, you can have a book in less than six months! What are you waiting for?”

– John Kremer, 1001 Ways to Market Your Book

“I just wanted to tell you that I picked up your Publishing Game book and it is fabulous. It’s EXACTLY what I was looking for. I’ve read X’s book and Y’s book but your book answered all my questions theirs tended to leave out. The book is like having my very own publishing consultant available to me at any time. I especially liked how you gave real-world examples of what someone could make on a book. Your example budget helped me realize exactly what I should expect to spend. Just starting out I figured I would be starving for the first few years, but now I realize it’s possible to make a pretty good income self-publishing. Thank you for reinforcing that fact. (Now if I can just convince my mother!) Thanks again for a wonderful book. The to-the-point writing is perfect and the mounds of information it has in such a small book is impressive. I can’t thank you enough.”

— Cheryl Kirk, Expanding Press

“I have your book, The Publishing Game: Publish a Book in 30 Days. I’m so impressed! It’s great, and I wish I had read it before I published my first book (grin). Thank you!”

— Robert Campbell,

“A delightful resource! Step by step, inch by inch, day by day, Fern Reiss has written the definitive recipe for self-publishing your book. I guarantee you'll find resources you didn’t know to ask about.”

— Judith Waite Allee, author of Educational Travel on a Shoestring and Homeschooling on a Shoestring
