I’m totally new to this world. I have an essay that is, philosophically, important to me. My goal is to spread the information to as many people as possible. I have decent traffic on my blog but I want this to be different. I’ve read that if people have to pay for something it makes it more enticing. That said, I’m not looking to make much money off this endeavor, my real goal is getting the information out there to people. Is it feasible to publish an essay-length book? Also, is it better to make it available electronically as well as in book form? Thanks for any info you can give to this newbie!
It seems to me that publishing it on the Internet will be the only right way. You can place it on the site, where people can buy a copy, but I don’t think it makes sense to publish a real paper book. When I first worked with www.australianwritings.com.au their essay seemed so perfect I wanted to share it with the whole world. I just published it, so my friend and all the people who’ve visited my blog, had chance to read it and enjoy. If it was your hard work, you can do the same, but ask just some money to share. It’ll be effective if you want to spread it.
