OpenSCAD books are the rage for 3D-printing and 3D-design

Front cover onlyTwo new books from technical author John Clark Craig are making waves in the #MakerSpace arena. The OpenSCAD Cookbook and Python for OpenSCAD were both just recently released.

These books aim to reduce the learning curve for anyone trying to learn how to create 3D-models. OpenSCAD itself is an open-source freeware language that anyone can use to directly create files that any 3D-printer can use.

Python for OpenSCAD Front Cover.jpg Using very basic commands, anyone can create STL files that make very practical items and send them to area libraries to be printed on public 3D-printers (check your local library’s terms).

This powerful combination opens up the 3D-printing world to every single person who wants engage with it.

Both of these OpenSCAD books are available now on – and in the Kindle form as well. The author will send you the code from the book if you merely ask. Those directions are on the last page of each book.

Happy Making!

New ways to market old books

Even if your book has been on the market for a while, there are all sorts of new tips and tricks for you to give it a new push and have it develop a whole new readership!

Book marketing is a marathon, not a sprint – but most authors give it a really good go right out of the gates and put so much time, money, energy and effort into launch, that they’re too overwhelmed to think of doing that again and again to keep momentum going. But that’s exactly what you have to do – keep that momentum going, or else, you’re just going to be a ‘flash in the pan’.

What you need is a plan, a calculated plan. You need to know what your whole next year looks like and plan book marketing events around special events in the calendar. Aim for at least one a month. The anniversary date of your book’s release is one. Your birthday is another. The start of an ‘awareness’ month for some cause is another. Holidays that relate to your readerships are great (Father’s Day for example). Important dates in history – anniversaries of important events. Or those random holiday calendars – like ‘blue cheese day’. Find a reason that relate to your book, you or especially your readership can relate to and amplify using your book.

With a plan in place, you’re going to feel less overwhelmed, and likely much more forward-looking and never find yourself in a place where you say, “Now what?”

Marketing Potential Critique

One of our favorite things to ask potential Books to Believe In authors is:

“Is your book REALLY a book?”  And if the answer to that is yes, then we ask, “Is your book ONLY a book?”

This is the question that really opens up our new author’s eyes. The reality that the same content can be used in different mediums is a staggering and exciting proposition. Most authors think we are just talking e-book or some other form of digital presentation, and if that potential exists, we’ll let you know. But that’s not all that we are talking about here.

Depending on whether your book is a fiction or a non-fiction, we approach this topic differently. However, whichever it is, there is potential for companion products of many varieties.

This evaluation is great for authors who find themselves newly completed with their book’s writing and not knowing where to turn next. Basically, they are at the stage: “I’ve written a book – now what?”

We can help these authors and also those whose marketing efforts have plateaued and they don’t know how to get in front of new markets to sell more books.

If you find yourself in either of these situations, please contact us at:

Well, you need get informed about what we and other publishers do so that you can decide for yourself what the best path is for you and your book.

Books To Believe In was founded by an author – for authors. EJ Thornton wrote Angel On Board and found herself not knowing what her next step was. She received mentoring from a known publisher in the Boise area, who taught her what she needed to know and then, unfortunately he died. EJ Thornton took the reigns not only of her book, but of an up and coming publishing company.

She didn’t like the way things were for authors and decided to blaze a new trail. Partner publishing was born. Books To Believe In is unique in the industry in the way we approach book projects and the way we approach authors – mainly because we were and still are very active authors and know exactly how it feels to be in your shoes.

Books To Believe In – if you want your book ready by the Holidays – get it into us NOW!

There are 4 really busy seasons in the publishing business.

The first is the beginning of the year when everyone is brushing off those New-Year’s resolutions and getting their book ready to publish. The second is right after tax season has hit and that stress is over. Maybe they got a refund, and now they can invest in their book. Not sure quite why, but it does happen every year. The phone starts ringing the day after taxes were due. The third rush period is right at the beginning of summer and the fourth and final one of the year is right about now – staring right into the holiday season!

It is the perfect time to finally organize yourself, get your ducks in a row and call the publisher.

We are available for consulting right now. It is a good idea to get someone else to go through your book or at least your plan with you to make sure you take advantage of everything that is available to you.

So many authors these days try to do this on their own because they can, but they miss out on so many tools that can make their lives easier.

Authors, the holidays are coming, and we’re right here – ready to help.
