It is school day morning and my teenage son just asked if he could stay home today because he couldn’t get to sleep last night. He was asleep at dinner time and I tried to wake him up. I had made a good dinner, creating something we would both like. I mention my son because he is a motivation in the more practical aspects of the attempt to direct-publish Tripio.
Simply put, I would like to make a little money from it. I need some income to continue to feed him, even if he sleeps through dinner.
Having said that, I did not initially create Tripio as a revenue stream, even if that is what it may become. In order to achieve said revenue I have had to do many things that I had not envisioned when I decided to direct, self or independently publish Tripio. One of those thing was marketing the book. Marketing is a word which can be defined, I suppose, almost anyway you want it to be. I define it partly as the process of acquiring positive blurbs to be placed on the front and back covers of Tripio.
That process has gone surprisingly well so far. Based on that, I am beginning to ponder a price point for the sale of Tripio. One which is now higher than originally planned.
It is worth repeating that I do have hopes for monetary gain from the publishing and selling of Tripio. As a qualifier it must be said that my goals are modest here, and may be adjusted based on my son’s sleep habits.
“May I help who’s next?”
