I am ready to self publish 'Simply Yoga' and 'Your Perfect Body' CD.
I've outsourced the editing and graphic design and am currently speaking to China about printing costs. The CD is being replicated and printed in Melbourne and the book will come back from China.
Self publishing is a journey on its own. I chose this path because I will reach more people with this book through my classes, the Activate expo and my online store. I will look for mainstream publishers for some of my other books.
I had the idea for my book Simply Yoga 2007. I thought within three months it would be complete. (hah!) I drove to Sydney to visit my photographer friend and we spent a day shooting photos. In 2008 we took them again and in 2009 I finished (I thought) the book. It was revised and edited in 2010 and revised and edited in 2011. Now it is in its final editing phase and within a month we will see a printed book YEY! Book launch coming soon..
The CD on the other hand has been milling around in my mind for almsot 20 years. Back then recording was extremely expensive-thousands of dollars. In 2007 I bought a microphone for 100 dollars, downloaded audacity onto my computer and recorded it myself. I spent several months editing the recording until I was happy with the final product. I created the original CD cover and printed all of the copies I sold for the next few years. My graphic designer, Jamie Palmer has re done the cover to match Simply Yoga. I can't wait to see my babies that have taken so long to form from the idea to the manifestation. Soon they will be here in my hands, and soon after, perhaps in yours. Yey, how exciting!
