Publishing family history | Writing creative nonfiction
Our list of published titles all have a few important things in common. They are:
- copyrighted and preserved through the Library of Congress.
- appropriately identified with ISBN numbers and listed on Bowker's "Books in Print."
- well written, compelling emotional reads with excellent reviews.
- of such historical significance, the titles, have in words of the publishing world, “long tails.” In other words, they have a very long market shelf life.
- first edition titles, published with short to very short runs making them potentially valuable collectibles. An example: Honoring the author's wishes, Idaho Gambling, first edition copies are limited to just 528 books. There are fewer than 300 remaining in inventory.
- signed autographed books such as copies of Sing or Cry that have already reached collectible status.
