Would you like to publish the results of your genealogy research? Does your genealogy society or family name organization want to publish data in book form? Publishing genealogy books has long been an expensive proposition. Genealogy authors often have paid in advance $2,000 to $10,000 or more to a book publisher in order to have a book published. However, today those "up front" expenses can be as low as zero, thanks to online services. In fact, if your book is ready to be sent to the publisher, you might be able to make it available for sale within the next ten minutes. Would-be purchasers can order your book directly from you or your web site, from the publisher's web site, or from Amazon, Borders, or Barnes and Noble.
Genealogists who wish to publish their findings often have them printed as short-run books, that is, the publication of small quantities of books. Family organizations also use short-run publishers to reprint old family genealogy books that have long been out of print. These are the books you normally see on the shelves at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, in other genealogy libraries throughout the world, and in the homes of many genealogists.
