It's more difficult than ever to get published and I didn't even try without an established author platform. I've heard that publishers aren't taking risks with unknown authors anymore.

Thanks for your question!(less)

If you use print on demand, there really is not much of a risk because you can profit off of selling just one book. However, if you pay money for a cover designer and advertising and consider the hours it took you to write the book, that's a little different obviously in terms of a profit. For example, it might be really easy to make a profit if you pay yourself $1 an hour, but not on selling one book.

If you do your own cover, do not buy stock images, and pay yourself $0 an hour, you can make a few dollars profit on one book. If you choose to print 10,000 books via the traditional self publishing route, it will be a full-time job to sell those books and -- I would guess -- about 97% of people will barely sell any, and you would be out $10,000+.

Hope that helps to answer your question. Most people sell very few books at first. The initial focus should be made on building a fan base that when notified can send your book to the top of the Amazon best-seller list(s).(less)

Yikes.

The three stories in this book were written in 1980, 1981, and 1982 by someone that was born in 1925. The biggest problem is that the main character in the first book is a bratty little girl that acts like a nine-year-old, but then she wants he
