Publishing A Crochet Book

Forum: Crochet Patterns

I am working on design submissions for a certain craft book publishing company. My mom has been encouraging me to do this for a while now and I’m finally getting started. I am not entirely sure about what to expect. If anyone has started this process or gotten a book published, I would love to hear any stories, advice, or warnings! Thanks!

Thank you! Could you tell me if it was worth it self-publishing? I haven’t quite decided against self-publishing, but I don’t know much about it.

Debbie Pribele ...

self-publishing is “easy” because you don’t have to jump through any hoops. But, you then have to do your own promoting.

with my books, I only shared with my circle of contacts and I sold a few. I also sold a few just from Lulu’s listing of books… that was a nice surprise

Thanks so much for the helpful info!

Debbie Pribele ...

good luck
