So, since it is therefore. My first book. Well, not quite, I had to 18 ever written a book, was still using a typewriter (It went through a desert-mannered trip to Moscow and Russia 1992), but the book was and is not intended for the public. Nearly three years ago I wrote then to a first publisher - if I wanted to work on a guide. I said yes, and then but no personal reasons. Good year and a half later there was another offer, But I also had to turn down for the time being. This time I have not knocked out.
The idea of “Southwest German publisher for academic journals” is actually quite simple: They have developed a system, The author makes the, Cover etc. to make themselves. Within a given mask, understood. Or the publisher can thus automate the process. The book is now also under the publisher “bloggingbooks” erschienen – ein Imprint des oben genannten Verlages.
Has the Schmöker 240 Pages and contains the first two thirds of a mix of some 100 (of almost 700) Blog entries from Japan, obviously edited, to the book form and language to do justice in terms of design. The last third is a chronicle of the events during and after the earthquake disaster in 11. March 2011. The book is, what it is - a real reader to all sorts of topics, sometimes with a slight, sometimes difficult to digest foods with.
Detriment of the whole: The book is expensive. The smaller the publisher, more expensive. This is logical. And because of the fixed book price can not sell it cheaper I. But it was worth a try, and the book design was indeed stressful, but quite interesting (I was four weeks and cost several hairs celebration evenings).
Is it worth the purchase for a regular reader? I'd love “and” write, but… The book is certainly different, but the contents are 99% borrowed from this blog. Someone, of this blog from beginning to end knows, will know the most. But no matter: Maybe looking for one or the other for a gift or a book recommendation for someone!?
The book is about Amazon and various other online book stores are related, and probably also in all good bookshops. Theoretically, it can also be ordered with me, if anyone wishes, But it makes no difference in price (I can add more than an autograph :)
So, it was time for an article on its own thing. Of course, it goes back further in the next post modest.
