What Karla Wants – Relaunch #Iamwriting

I made the decision this past week to relaunch What Karla Wants with a paperback edition through Ingram Spark. Talk about a learning curve, the Adobe Indesign software is complicated to learn, but once mastered it will open up a whole new area for me in the world of publishing.

 

I not only managed to make a cover using the Adobe software but also formatted the interior of the book. It did not come out exactly the way I wanted it, but it does look professional.

There are a bunch of templates to choose from, but with more experience, I hope to be able to create my Interior templates.

Most of my works have been moved from the KDP site. I have left the paperback editions, and I have only created one book so far on Ingram Spark. Eventually, I will have all my books through Ingram.

I am also going with Lulu for the hardcover books only because the Isbns are free from Lulu. I think that if I can submit quality products to Lulu, the distribution channels will be more open to selling my works.

All eBook editions are moving to D2D. Their distribution service keeps adding new venues, and their conversion service is easier to use than Smashwords. They also do distribute to Amazon Kindle but not to CreateSpace as a paperback. I already have that area covered anyways.

 

From Print to Photography

 

Mike likes practicing his photography skills. I have started a new line on Lulu that will put all those photos to good use by creating calendars for the coming year. I have yet to learn how to distribute them to bookstores. They may have to be a flea market and jobber product. You can find these calendars for sale under my calendar tab.

NaNoWriMo is coming soon!

 

I have a new title I am working on once again. I know that I said I would work on the other works in progress but one always needs a new title for NaNo. I have been plotting and planning but may wind up panstering this book. Maybe I will outline two chapters at a time, so I will still have some direction to follow.

 

Until we meet again – Keep on Writing!

    I forgot to mention that I am officially the owner/CEO of Keelaa B Publishing. Once I have mastered Indesign software I will be ready to take formatting submissions for both eBooks and print that will be Ingram quality.
