Today, my talented friend and occasional client Tara Lazar is celebrating the release of Six Sentences, Volume 1. Her short short stories appear in the book, which was compiled and edited by Robert McEvily, the fortyish creator of Six Sentences, a microfiction blog. McEvily’s doing some smart, innovative things on a shoestring budget. If he gave each of the book’s contributing authors a copy, then he can count me as a fan.
You can purchase Six Sentences, Volume 1 for $29.97 at Amazon.com or CreateSpace, the Amazon.com subsidiary that lets you self-publish books, music, and video with no up-front fees and no minimum order. As you can see, the self-publishing, POD method increases the price of a book by 20 to 50 percent. However, there’s no waste in the process. Only ebooks are more ecologically sound.
Congratulations, Tara! This is the beginning of many good things.
