Last year, I decided to write a book that explains the basics of investments in a simple manner. I initially meant to just give out the books as Christmas gifts to my co-doctors and friends. Due to the good response of those who received the book, I decided to sell the book.
My book is available in Amazon here and via Central Books bookstores in the Philippines.
Central Books also invited me to appear in the 36th Manila International Book Fair. A chance to hawk my book in person!
For authors, there’s always the fear that even if you show up at the book fair, no one buys your book, which can be embarrassing and ego crushing….
My presence might not help sell my books, but at least I’ll enjoy the fair. I heard great things about the fair. I’m going to buy books there for myself. I also look forward in meeting other independent publishers like myself.
Here’s the book by the way.
I have only sold a few copies (emphasis on few) of my book, yet I get a big chunk of the proceeds by going independent.
Not bad for a book initially planned as a unique Christmas gift.
In case you’re interested, I’ll show up at the Manila International Book Fair on Sunday (September 20) afternoon to peddle my book.
