Even Carrie Had a Prom Date

The origin of IntrovertPRESS is a selfish one. Upon completing my novel and not having a traditional publishing contract I was faced with the Indie Author conundrum:

  1. I wrote a book
  2. I now want to sell the book
  3. Commence bashing head into desk

It’s a bit like getting yourself all gussied up on a Saturday night and then hoping a date will materialize at your door.  It is infuriating, even Carrie had a prom date.

So I created IntrovertPRESS to accomplish a few things:

  1. Make me feel like I’m actually DOING something to market my book
  2. Give my book a traditional publisher feel
  3. Create a network to put my book in front of buyers
  4. Garner a peer review of my novel until I land a qualified industry review
  5. See #1

In addition, I’m going to purchase my own ISBN so I can put my book on local bookstore shelves. The local paper has agreed to do a book review of my novel, so — assuming it is positive — my book will have a local push. If anyone else is interested in purchasing ISBN’s for their work, the costs are far more reasonable when you purchase in bulk:

  • $125 – 1 ISBN
  • $250 – 10 ISBNs – if IntrovertPRESS buys 10, super cheap to IP members
  • $575 – 100 ISBNs – super cheaper here!
  • $1000 – 1000 ISBNs – super cheapest…ISBN’s all around bartender!

Apparently buying ISBN’s is like buying mayonnaise, the 5 gallon vat of condiment is cheaper in bulk — and so it goes for literary birthmarks.

  1. I may be interested in joining forces when I get started on a new book series. I’m in the middle of the 4th book in my current series, and I’d like to branch out into other genres after that.
