Recommended Printers for the
Rocky Mountain Writer's Summit™

Printing the book is just one aspect of getting your book into the hands of readers.

Printing postcards, business cards, flyers and banners are also part of creating the business presence you need to become successful in the business of writing.

Hiring a printer can be intimidating if you haven't done it before. The terminology is second nature to them and they will ask you to fill out forms using their terminology. A simple misinterpretation of any one of those parameters can result in a botched job or wasted time and/or money.

There will be one printer presenting at the Rocky Mountain Writer's Summit and its representatives will be there to answer your questions and give you valuable insight into the printing needs for your project.

Writer's Summit Tip #11:

Read your book aloud to a willing reader or to a digital recorder. Listen for awkward phrasing. Listen when you catch yourself paraphrasing, instead of reading. Make a mark as you are reading your book and come back to it, don't try and fix it during the read.

After I wrote "Angel On Board," I read it to my 9 year old daughter and listened to myself as I read it aloud. I caught awkward phrasing, repeated words and many other irritating flaws. I tell everyone that she was my best editor!

Writer's Summit Tip #10:

Hand your first proof to someone who is a skilled editor and allow them to 'clean' up your book BEFORE you share your book with friends and family.

Remember, your first proof is not ready for publication! It is like a newborn baby with the gunk still on it. If you do you share your book prematurely with non-professionals, you open yourself up to unnecessary criticism and (unintentional) dream stealing.

Your confidence is what will drive the book's initial sales and any early words of criticism can ring in your ears for a long time. Wait until you are confident in your project and solid in your dream - BEFORE you share it with others, especially those closest to you whose opinions you value highly!
