Publishing Your First Book

I wrote my first book recently called "Money Saving Tips From A Stay-At-Home Mom". It gives tips on how a family can live off of one income.

Since I am a Stay-at-home Mom, I was able to write tips that I learned each day.

In this short book, I shared some things I learned along the way that have taught me to live and eat well for less.

This book covers grocery shopping techniques that will cut your grocery bill in half, cooking healthy meals from scratch, homemade cleaning supplies which are healthier and cheaper and gardening to save money.


Money Saving Tips From A Stay At Home Mom

How Do You Get Your Book Published?

The big question is: "How do I get published?" I published my book on Lulu.com, which is a self-publishing website.

You can write e-books and regular books. You can write about anything under the sun. Lulu.com has a full-size book and booklet printing services.

They also connect to Amazon so that your book could be bought through the site. You get to choose how much you sell your book for.

They take a certain amount for printing and shipping and you get the rest. You may not get much per book, but if you can sell a lot of copies, you could make some good money.

I really enjoyed writing my book since it pertained to my life and it is nice to have all this information in one place for my own personal use.

      I have been selling one or two books a month lately. I started out selling 5-10 books per month. I think it is time for an updated version of my book! The nice thing about Lulu.com is that they promote your book through their site, Amazon.com and many eReader sites for free! They just take a percentage of the money from your sales.

      Thanks for telling us about the source you used for having your first book published and available for sale. It sounds as though you have much good advice to offer those who are trying to live on one income. Several generations ago, it was quite common for the woman to stay at home and do some of the things you mentioned. Voted up and interesting.
