Dan Poynter – How To Write Your First Non-Fiction Book

Self-Publishing Guru Dan Poynter explains and educates new writers on how to write publish and promote their first book.

Dan Poynter fell into publishing. He spent eight years researching a labor of love. Realizing no publisher would be interested in a technical treatise on the parachute, he went directly to a printer and “self- published.” The orders poured in and he suddenly found he was a publisher himself.

In 1973, he became interested in a new aviation sport, couldn’t find a book on the subject so he sat down and wrote one. After four months of writing and intense research that took him from coast to coast, he delivered the manuscript to the printer. So far, Hang Gliding has sold over 130,000 copies-a “best seller”!

Continuing to write, Dan has produced more than 76 books and revisions so far, of which some have been translated into Spanish, Japanese, Russian, British-English and German. Over the years, Dan has developed a system of writing that makes it all so easy and fun. His books are loaded with facts and figures and contain detailed inside information. They are always up-to-date because he revises them before going back to press. Dan has sold millions of his books, including several best sellers, for ten of millions of dollars in sales. Many of his books sell at the rate of 10-20,000 copies per year, every year.

For many years, Dan ran Para Publishing all by himself. In fact, he was often billed as the world’s largest one-person publishing company. As a one-man show, an author/publisher who handled all the writing, publishing and promotion, office management and shipping himself, Dan is in the best position to advise a first time self-publishing author who is on a limited budget. Today, Dan has staff, a number of products and services (books, reports, tapes, disks, seminars, etc.) and a large suite of offices with a 360 view of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Dan has traveled to more than 40 counties and he has even skydived into the north pole. He has written several technical books on parachutes and popular books on skydiving. When you have your own business and control your own product, you can pursue your dreams.

Dan’s work for publishing was recognized by the Publishers Marketing Association when they gave him the Benjamin Franklin Award. He was given the Irwin Award for the best electronic promotion campaign by the Book Publicists of Southern California. He is a past vice-president of PMA.

Dan Poynter’s seminars have been featured on CNN, his books have been pictured in The Wall Street Journal, and his story has been told in U.S. News & World Report. The media comes to him because he is the leading authority on book marketing, promoting and distributing.

self publishing?

can i self publish an ebook by myself and not go through a publishing website or pay anyone money? just do everything myself. please be as detailed as possible, i have no idea on how to turn my writing into an ebook and get it on the web. also, can anyone illustrate a childrens book?

Oh course if you turn it into an ebook, it will be nonprofit. Just start your own website and post it there, even simpler post it on some forums. Type the words into Microsoft Word or Adobe Reader. As for the illustrations ask a Photoshopper to do those for you, or you may do them yourself. Hope this helps.

The Wellington Collaboratorium

Image by The Bottomless Paddling Pool
Just got the photos from Gregory Sholette’s show The Wellington Collaboratorium held at the Enjoy Public Art Gallery here in Welly during June 2010.

Part of the show was An Imaginary Archive, and artists, zinesters, writers, etc were asked to submit any self-published work of fictional histories they have worked on.

Two zines of my fitted the bill, so they were featured. I wont say which ones cause I don’t want to give away the false stories in them, but perhaps if you know my zines and have a sharp eye you can pic them out of these photos…

New from Old: Using Online Self Publishing Services… in Special Collections Libraries

Digitization and online presentation is a popular way to disseminate unique materials found in Special Collection Libraries. However, it is equally important for these unique and often decaying materials to find their way into hardcopy books to provide a much more permanent (or at least long-lasting) record and to provide the researcher or enthusiast a reference copy which can be made available to them both inside or outside of the Special Collections Reading Room. Online book publishing services (such as Blurb) offer opportunities for Special Collection libraries to easily create reference materials that can be used both in the secure reading room, or circulated to the general public. Additionally, the creation of these reference books aid in the promotion, discovery and ultimate use of a collection by way of the bibliographic record found in the library’s online public catalog. This presentation demonstrates a few examples of how this can be achieved.
