Yes, depending on how you package your work, it is so easy for your book to return the investment. The mistake most authors make is to only depend on book sales and worse still depend on the traditional methods of distribution (Library and Bookshops). Our readers have moved to Social Media and non-book events. If you are smart enough to use the book as your business card, or as a key to an opportunity, and also tap into the new avenues of distribution, you will not only return the investment but you will also live on it.
If you compare our costs and the costs of a poorly done book, you will then notice that we are so affordable. A bad book is bad for your work, your name and itself (as a book). There are a number of persons and organizations willing to finance book publications. Our flexible payment plan where we can publish you then you pay as you sell has also enabled many people to publish. Lack of money shouldn’t make you publish a book of poor quality. The secret is to look around.
Granted, Africa might not have as many readers as other parts of the world. However, to assume that Africans DON’T read is to make an error. There are many ardent readers, and many people who would love to be guided and supported in starting their readership. If only you would ensure the content of your book is juicy, then package it well (quality publishing), and finally, you present it where required, you will be so surprised where the readers have been.
