A Christian Self Publishing Guide to Sell Books & eBooks Online
Now I’ve gone and done it!
Talking only to believers?
Do you realize how seldom this is done in this modern online world? I was just writing a normal guide for self publishers when I realized that i really had nothing to say to them. The book is written in reaction to the constant requests to lie about who I like (when I don’t even know the person), or the advice to set up six different accounts on amazon solely for the purpose of writing my own reviews—how immoral is that, on so many levels. I’m constantly told that if I don’t brag on myself, no one else will. What ever happened to:
Do you suppose it is in vain that the scripture says, “He yearns jealously over the spirit which he has made to dwell in us”? But he gives more grace; therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you men of double mind. Be wretched and mourn and weep. Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to dejection. Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you. [James 4:5-10 RSV]
So this is a guide to seeking the Lord’s face and following Him as you release and market your book. If He has called you, He will bless your work. This is practical Christian information on the process of selling your book online.
