We’ve got two big projects going to the printer (or at the printer) right now. I’ve known for ages that we would have to pay $7000+ for these printings but I didn’t quite realize they would come at the same time. I’m reasonably certain that we will make a profit on these ventures but I can’t help getting a bit nervous now that the time to pay up has arrived.
So far we really haven’t had to deal with the issue of cash flow which is the beautiful thing about POD. But now I can see how complicated publishing becomes when you have to pay for the books many months before you are likely to receive money for any sales. The trade-off is that we should have a much better profit margin on a print run than a POD release. I hope this gamble pays off!
