Amazon Review on Book 1: Looking to Jesus: Journey into Renewal and Revival

Geoff Waugh’s life and ministry has influenced people all around the world. The story of his life and ministry will be of interest not only to those who know him – you will find yourself reflecting on your own journey with Jesus. Here is a personal journey with reflections that will enrich the lives of all readers. As he `looked to Jesus’ along the way he was opened up to many exciting new ventures in Australia and into countries where revival and renewal is vibrant, changing many lives. Although a biography, many others are involved. His reflections fit naturally, showing how his personal journey has relevance for others.  (John Olley)

 Amazon Review on Book 2: Journey into Mission

I have read many similar stories, but this one exceeds them all. 

I read the on-line edition and was blown away by the response of the Solomon Islanders to the power of the Holy Spirit. It was amazing, or should I say God-planned. Geoff has done well to not only be in so many places and seeing God at work, but also writing a book about it all.  It’s as if it has all happened in a world apart, but the events in Brisbane show that it could happen in Australia also.  (Barbara Vickridge)

Here is part of Chapter 1: Create

This morning I had an idea: Why not make a book explaining how to make a book for free?

So here it is.

I’ve been publishing books for a while. It used to cost me a lot, but now I do it for free. So can you.

All the guide books and articles that I found seemed hard to understand, so I thought: Why not make a simple guide book that anyone can use? Here it is. This book is available to order in print or immediately available on Kindle. I uploaded it to CreateSpace publishers for free.

All you need is a computer (or laptop, or tablet, or even a smartphone) linked to the internet. The Kindle version is handy because it has direct links to web pages.

I chose to print this book in ‘color’. That costs a bit more but for small books of 24-40 pages or so, copies are not expensive. If you use images or photographs they look better in color.

So if you would like to publish a book like this simple one for free, go ahead. It’s easy to do. You can upload it today for free and order copies tomorrow! You just pay for the copies you order, from one to any number you want. And authors/publishers get their copies cheaper than anyone else!

What book?

Possibilities are endless!

An easy way to start would be by using your family or holiday photos. Many people have albums on web pages such as on Facebook but books are still popular and welcome, especially as gifts.

You may like to use images as I have done in my Appendix.

Perhaps you could consider fiction or non-fiction. Most of my books are non-fiction, but I have included fiction stories that a pre-school grandson told me when he was 3 and 4. Uploading many edited copies to the publisher cost nothing as I gradually improved the layout of the book. There’s a holiday idea for you with your children or grandchildren

An older grandson wrote a biography for a primary school assignment so I published that and it became a welcome and popular gift. He did the layout himself. You could help your children or grandchildren make a small book of around 24 pages.

Your children or grandchildren may appreciate your autobiography, or part of your life story. The world has changed so much since the twentieth century that your story could be really interesting especially if you illustrate it with some photos. You could start with some small books and then combine them into one larger volume later.

I have published various essays written by my students and made them available in a book. If you do that you become the editor of that book. Students often gave their work to me with better formatting than I can do myself. I have encouraged students to publish their work, for free.

Maybe you lead or speak in a study group and could gather your material into a small resource book. You can have that published and in your hands within a month, or have it available on Kindle tomorrow! I often use my books as resources for my speaking or teaching.

Why not try something to begin? You may find yourself enjoying this hobby and helping or blessing others in the process.

Comments from my BlogYou can publish for free:

A huge advantage of CreateSpace is that you can upload new editions, or corrections, also for free.

Digital eBooks are easiest to do now.  Just upload your Word file to Kindle!  Add a free cover you create with Cover Creator.

Just go to CreateSpace.com (an Amazon company) and follow the links.
What you publish there goes on Amazon and Kindle for free.

Expanded distribution adds your book(s) to The Book Depository with free airmail worldwide, and your books are listed on other distributors, some of which get listed on Amazon as well.

You can start small.  For example, King of the Granny Flat (a biography – Look inside) was a Grade 7, primary school assignment done by my grandson, Dante Waugh, including the layout and photo selections.  So Grandpa just published it – for free.  There’s an idea for parents and grandparents!

The main disadvantage is that all your errors get published (in print or digitally) just as you upload them!  But it’s easy to then upload a corrected version for free.  If you have a spouse or friend good at editing, you’re home and hosed.  CreateSpace now provides a brilliant digital proof of your book that you can examine before publishing.

You can pay for services, such as covers, layout, editing, marketing.  But these are all optional extras.  At first I used their services for layout and covers.  This first line of images here gives examples of CreateSpace cover designs I paid for:

Here are examples of cover designs done by others that we reproduced:

I did most of my other books with the CreateSpace cover creator for free.  For example, the 20 issues of the Renewal Journal have the same cover design and fonts, but different colours and photos – See Renewal Journals page:

You will see many books with the same cover design but different colours, fonts and photos on the Books and Welcome page here, all done for free, such as these in the Lion of Judah series:

A 1 TitlesA 2 Reign of JesusA 6 Spirit of JesusA 7 Lion*

Other books, including the digital versions, have a range of free cover designs such as this design:
