Express Your Freedom with Self-Publishing

There are many different ways to make money when you move overseas or even before you make the move. Like I discussed in Fund Your Freedom Overseas, it is better to create a portable income… one that goes where you go and is not location dependent.

An ideal solution is self-publishing.  Instead of writing articles for international publications that will put restrictions on what they will or will not accept, you will have a lot more freedom to express yourself with self-publishing either your articles or books.

With self-publishing you don’t need a publisher and you don’t need to print hundreds of books.   It is much better to start with a book you sell in digital format on Amazon.com   Plus you can tap in to the power of the largest bookstore on the planet, Amazon.com, to sell your books.   Did you know Amazon has over 2.5 million credit cards on file for buyers who prefer to buy your books with 1-Click!.

A book does not need to be a novel.  But it could be.  Instead you can write about things you are passionate about.  Do you love to make cookies?  You could write a cookie cookbook complete with photos of yummy cookies.  Are you great at finding bargains at flea markets and garage sales?  You could share your tips and tricks for what to look for and how to negotiate a great price.  Do you love fishing?  Write a book about your secrets to catching lots of fish.  Or, when you are traveling overseas, you can write about your adventures overseas.


Once your book is finished, the next step is to get a book cover designed.

You can even hire an editor at mer-c-publishing.com. They will check the book for spelling and grammar errors.  It’s always a good idea to get a second set of eyes to look over your book before you go live.

I like to get an ISBN number for all my books.  International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a unique  numeric commercial book identifier.  You will have a different ISBN number for each book.

After the cover page of your book, you should always have a copyright notice.  That is where I put my ISBN number and my contact information. Speaking of copyrights… when you write the book you can claim a copyright to all the materials by adding a copyright page at the front of the book.
