Hello Forum, I would like to get some feedback and discuss some publishing options I am considering. Here are some initial facts: I have written an 83,000 word book about off grid living, homesteading, survival and adventure. Chapter topics are quite variable. To give you an idea, one chapter is devoted to homesteading in Maine, another to tree farming and logging, a chapter to a winter thru hike of the Appalachian trail, another chapter to a cross country bicycle trip, a chapter devoted to being surrounded by a forest fire to a couple chapters about living 100 miles in the Canadian bush. I am able to get the book to flow from chapter to chapter in a semblance of order. My intent is to supplement this book with approximately 100 pictures. I have fired off query letters to lots of agents and publishers. I have had quite a bit of good feedback. The gist being, I have 3 small publishers so far interested in exploring this further with me. I am taking nothing for granted and am pursuing several paths. I don't know whether I will be better off self publishing via kindle and the like or whether the traditional publisher is the way to go. That of course assumes one of the publishers takes the project on and at what contract terms. If I do self publish an ebook, then I have several options: 1. Publish my ebook in its entirety as a 220? page book or 2. Publish in appropriate chunks of 3 or 4 separate books ( Book 1 has all the early homesteading chapters, book 2 has the travel adventures stories, book 3 has wilderness stories, book 4 has other topics. It seems to me, I might have a better shot of marketing, garnering favorable reviews and keeping reader interest if I broke the book up and created a 4 book package. Plus easier for reader downloads especially with many pictures and the selling price might be more favorable. Instead of $6.99 ?? for the whole book, if I sold for $1.99 ?? I come out ahead. I would expect numerous reader questions in regards to the content of the book which would make adding a 5th book (answers to readers questions) easy to implement. I already have a website and facebook page devoted to the book and am confident in my marketing abilities. I'm wondering if anyone might have some experience with the concept I've outlined. I truly appreciate any thoughts. Thanks.
