Looking Back

22 Jun

This Blog does not get a lot of attention. How could it? With a post a year it is not what you might call newsworthy. This Blog is about the adventure of getting published. Our book, Jibonka, has been published, well, we published it. Initially, we sold quite a few copies. Even more important – almost all of the people who bought a copy liked it and some even got a second to give it to friends.

BUT we did not manage to get Jibonka into a lot of bookstores. So we did not have any distribution to speak of. I think 99,99999999% of the people in Germany haven’t got the faintest inkling Jibonka exists, elsewhere even less people know about the only book with more than 75 Black Forest Cakes in it.

We have to admit that we cannot sell the book. It is really difficult to get it done, but I think we also lost confidence and motivation along the way.

I guess had we invented the iPhone we would have sold about a dozen of them and then given up. 

So, if we do another book, we will only do it with a publisher!
