publishing a book: print or epub?

Under The Thelián Sky: Beyond the Great Unknown (updated cover)I continue working on the Under the Thelian Sky trilogy with some minor changes like names with no ligatures or accents (for example, Thelia instead of Theliá). I’d not change the language (sexual situations and light profanity using made-up words) or the theme of surviving the end of the world (no longer able to support human life, science fiction) while holding to one’s faith in the Godhead.

I’m working on the project as one volume with separate title pages for each book, making it so far 857 9×6″ pages (using Bookman Old Style, 12 points). Maybe releasing the complete story at once might get more people to buy it and read it.

If I were to use the same publisher, I’d ask for the current cover to be recycled perhaps with red rather than the current lime-green background, but definitely keep the creepy font. Of course, doing so would once again mean self-publishing, which would cost about $2000 (print and ePub) without promotion (another $2000, at least, that I don’t have). Maybe I’d have to run a new campaign to get this project funded. In such case, I’d give to those who contribute

  1. the current version (Under the Thelián Sky: Beyond the Great Unknown on ePub or PDF) for review before investing,
  2. and the new book plus whatever other goodie
  3. or include advertisement of their business (sponsorship, paid adverts).

In the other hand, co-publishing (sharing costs) could be an alternative, but I’m not sure how this works. Needless to say (type), getting a book deal would be much nicer even if it meant compromising allowing the editor and/or publisher change part of the text, but not the story itself. Said all this, if you’re a publisher interested in my new manuscript and willing to offer me a one- or three-book deal, reply to this message. Since I approve all replies before posting, I can get your contact information without compromising your privacy and/or sharing your email address with the rest of the world.

Of course, if you as a reader want my book Under the Thelián Sky: Beyond the Great Unknown (ISBN 9781449735920), you can buy for $3.99 or less at

Thank you all for your support.
