Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, Readable Business Book Publishing in Canada and selling enough copies to make a profit doesn’t have to be difficult.  As a matter of fact, all it takes is a little education.   Canadian writer, publisher, and founder of Polished Publishing Group, Kim Staflund, works with businesses and individuals to publish and market their books.  After much experience in “traditional” publishing, and becoming rather fed-up with their inability to operate like a business rather than a nonprofit, the author found an effective solution for Canadian writers: entrepreneurship.  Creating a saleable product with wide distribution is the goal; she notes that writers have a lot of options when it comes to publishing services, distribution, and promotion.  Rather than writing a book and hoping that profits roll in, authors need to become proactive.  If you “treat publishing, sales, and marketing as your own business,” you can be a successful author, and create an income.  Staflund’s personal stories, humor, and examples throughout makes this book entertaining as well as instructional.  It’s an overall reminder that writing is more than just an art (if the goal is to make a profit), it’s keeping the target market in mind and marketing directly to that niche.  Staflund is a credible source as she has sold numerous copies of her books through various book signings, readings, craft sales, art shows, and speaking engagements.  If making a living writing is the goal, pounding the pavement is necessary and this guide will show you how to do it, correctly.   Overall, do-it-yourself authors will get useful insight into the business side of publishing with this book. How to Publish a Book in Canada…and Sell Enough Copies to Make a Profit is a great investment for future publishers—both in Canada and outside of Canada.
