Where are my Prints?

Last year I had announced that I would begin the process of having my books available for print on demand.

And I did.

Though I stopped.

I’m glad you all asked!

The answer is a simple one – I wants my own ISBNs.

Using Draft to Digital has been great, don’t get me wrong.

I love that they offer free ISBNs for indie authors, but that only sits well with me when it comes to distributing my e-books.

When it comes to using their ISBNs for print – physical copies of my work – I don’t feel comfortable going through that process. So I’ve been saving up for a ten (10) bundle ISBN deal with Bowker. Right now, I can only comfortably buy one.

It’s not much, but it’s certainly a start.

Which, honestly is fine – I only have one full novel available now (#adovescry) and could easily purchase the ISBN and set up distribution with Draft to Digital. But I want to have a few more available, as I am finishing up the rough draft to A Dove’s Cry and also would like to offer Sweet Seducing Sighs to my readers as a Novelette.

That’s already three ISBNs. And with seven left for future projects, that would be ideal for me right now.

I’m so serious about wanting to buy my own ISBNs that I’m not even going to crowdsource for the $300 needed to do so. These are my stories and the mere thought of someone being able to say, “If I hadn’t donated to your little project, you wouldn’t have those ISBNs now!” sends me into screeching rage mode.

See? There are other methods of motivation out there authors!

Probably not the most healthiest, but gosh darn if it isn’t effective.

Anyhoo, I have to get back to my nine to five!

What are your thoughts on having your own ISBNs?

Let me know in the comments.
