After a few more night sessions, I completed a cycle started about 5 years ago: it started by writing a book about how to perform in paragliding, in French. I put on paper a large part of my knowledge and experiences in that area. Then started the long journey to get this book translated to English and published. Now the job is done.
Yippee! The first volume of Performance Paragliding – Preparation, is now available in paperback edition. Thanks René and Alex. By looking for a solution for you German readers, I could find a solution for all potential readers!
Sometimes you end where you should have started. I was so focused on publishing an e-book to avoid physical issues that I neglected options. With the major one lying exactly in front of me: Amazon Direct Publishing. I might promote a bit too much their services these times, but this particular one makes a difference for authors: you can publish a paperback edition, worldwide, with no minimum copies to print, at a material cost of about 3 Euros per copy and a distribution margin of 40%. All in all, very attractive for modest authors.
I will see if, like it is possible for the e-book, I can upgrade the content of the book. I could add pictures to make it look nicer and more colorful. Anyway, even though pictures could make it more enjoyable, I hope you will learn from the text, or find sensible questions to ask yourself about your practice. On paper!
Dites donc, rien de publié ici depuis un moment? Il faut dire, j’aime vraiment mon dernier billet sur l’Australie. Et puis ce que j’ai pu faire en vol ensuite, Mosel Open, vol de plaine, Airtour (ah non, là, pas de vol!), PWC en Italie, je l’ai fait d’abord pour moi, pour me balader, rencontrer du monde, profiter des voyages. Bien entendu, j’ai plein de brouillons rédigés de-ci de-là mais rien de suffisamment inspirant pour que je publie. La fin de semaine dernière m’a inspiré, alors voici une nouvelle petite aventure en parapente!
