Too good for an ebook

Oct 31, 2005 -
After publishing 18 ebooks on my web site http://www.JamesTaris.com I have decided to publish my next 2 books, Travel Without Money and Travel Without Money - Workshop Manual, as bound books rather than ebooks. Public interest in these 2 books continues to grow weekly, and I would be doing the public, my books, and myself, a huge injustice if I settled for 2 more ebook publications.

The difference could be as extreme as 200 ebook sales compared to 200,000 bound-book sales! (Ouch!!!)

So, I'm now looking for a publisher with a good international distribution network. But if you know of such a publisher and can recommend me to them, please ask them to contact me at JamesTaris@gmail.com to discuss a publishing contract.

As the book sales and distribution will now be the publishers domain, I will notify you of the new release date for these books as soon as a publisher is found and negotiations completed.

In the meantime, you can read about my Travel Without Money travels in my other ebooks (in the left-hand margin). In fact, here's a ...

Happy travelling,

Travel Without Money LIBRARY soon to be released

Sep 27, 2004 -
Due to irreconsilable differences with my publisher, we are no longer in negotiations. This has now enabled me to focus on all the different aspects of my travels and make available a larger selection of books.

I have chosen to self-publish these in order to retain full control of all parts of the publishing process. I plan to release these works at various times throughout 2005 and 2006.

Happy travelling,

Publishing my Travel Without Money book

Sep 15, 2004 -
In July I was approached by a HUGE publisher in Sydney and asked if I'd be interested in having them publish my book, Travel Without Money. Of course I said YES! Since then I've submitted my book proposal which was accepted.

Now we're negotiating the contract terms. It's not my favourite pastime, but it's got to be done in such a way that I don't lose my right to many other options, including running Travel Without Money seminars and workshops. In the meantime, I'm overseas again, writing the book from scratch.

Happy travelling,
James Taris
