Print on Demand Publishing for Your Genealogy Society
Has your society ever published a book?  Are you still storing boxes and boxes of those books in someone's basement because you had to buy a thousand copies in order to get a good price, and now you realize you'll never sell them all?  We can't help you get rid of those books, but there's good news for future publications!

Guest Lisa Alzo (author, lecturer, and former FGS Publications chair) discusses how societies can reduce costs and still offer quality publications by using print-on-demand services.

From selecting a print vendor to preparing your publication for printing to obtaining an ISBN number, Lisa offers many tips for making the process easier, which means less impact on volunteer time.  Find a typo after you've published?  With traditional publishers, you would have to start over.  With print-on-demand, you can fix those errors at no extra cost and little effort.  Lisa even offers some insight into making the step from print-on-demand to full electronic publishing (e.g. Kindle, etc.).

Listen to the archived broadcast of "Print on Demand Publishing for Your Genealogy Society" on the blogtalkradio My Society channel by FGS, or you can listen below:
