Stories from the drawer

In the middle of the all other tasks I had going on, I suddenly decided to publish a few of my stories as a small book.

As an entrepreneur I have prepared layouts to many books for other authors and poets but not for my own. I do not have any novels ready, but I have got many short stories on my computer. I picked out seven of them and noticed that they read like bedtime stories for adults and youngsters with a quirky sense of humor and unconventional viewpoints.

The stories needed just a little bit of polishing and trimming. I drew up some little illustrations, made the layout and sent it to the printing house. It was surprisingly easy to publish the book.

Also the sales surpassed all my expectations. I told my friends about the book in Facebook on Thursday and 60 % of the books were sold on Saturday. I got the money back I paid for the printing in a couple of days. I could not believe it!

Still, this is not a business yet, but very good practice for future.

We planned to publish a children's book but the amount of ideas and ambition grew during the project.
