Self-Publishing a Photo Book

Self-Publishing a Photo Book | AuthorHouse Publishing Tips | Scoop.it
The holiday season is nothing if not visual. Decorations, family celebrations, snowy scenes… Christmas might be the most photographed holiday of the year. You can post your pictures online and enjo...
Angelyn Cañete's insight:

Seek objective opinions about your work. Post samples online and read the comments–some of them might sting a little, but is the criticism valid?

 

- Try postcards. Postcards are a great way of gauging interest in your work.
- Show only your best work. You want to show only what you can do on your best day, and only choose the work that contributes to your book’s subject. This leads us to…
-  Is your book subject- or photographer-oriented? Will the book showcase all your work, or draw attention to a particular subject? If the former, are you well-known enough to attract readers?
- Register a domain name. Once you decide on your book’s title, register it as a domain name so you can promote it online.

AuthorHouse Presents Gun Tips - Part 1

AuthorHouse Presents Gun Tips - Part 1 | AuthorHouse Publishing Tips | Scoop.it
AuthorHouse Writer Advice Center presents some tips on how to use firearms accurately in your story, and avoiding some common mistakes
Angelyn Cañete's insight:

Well, today AuthorHouse will point out some common mistakes—slips that can undermine your story’s credibility.

 

“I thought I had one bullet left!” We’ve all seen this one: a character points an automatic at another character—the end is near—and then “click!” The gun is empty! Hand-to-hand combat ensues.

The problem is, when an automatic has fired its last shot, the slide locks back. In other words, there’s no way that both characters wouldn’t know the gun was empty. If you have to include a scene like this in your story, go with a revolver instead.


Pistols versus revolvers. A “pistol” refers to a semi-automatic handgun, while “revolver” refers to…well, a revolver. Be careful to use the correct terms when the character should know the difference.

AuthorHouse Writer Advice Center presents some tips on writing and self-publishing books of photography
Angelyn Cañete's insight:

Today, AuthorHouse presents some tips for aspiring writer-photographers who would like to see their pictures displayed on something other than a computer monitor.

Is your work ready? Seek objective opinions about your photos. Of course your wife or mother loves them, but strangers probably won’t be so kind. Post some of your work online (at photo communities, blogs, etc.) and read the feedback. It might hurt (and you need to develop a thick skin,) but some of it might be constructive.

Start with postcards or greeting cards. Even if your technical ability is up to par, is there a market for your style of work? Postcards and greeting cards are one way of “sticking your toe into the pool,” and gauging interest.

Show only your best work. Every photographer has pictures that hold sentimental value. Strip away the sentiment (because your reader won’t share it) and be ruthless; is it good enough?

Angelyn Cañete's insight:

Pick a unique angle.

Provide background. Tell the reader a little about the dishes in your book.

Try blogging!

Illustrations!

Know what’s out there already. Spend some time online and at book-and-mortar bookstores. What’s already available? What isn’t? Flip through a few recipes; why are some explanations easy to follow but others aren’t? What book covers caught your eye, and why?
