Vicki answers your questions about A Heart For God.
The copyright for A Heart for God allows anyone to print this book as long as you print it in its complete and exact form for no monetary gain. I recommend these 3 easy steps for printing a bound copy of A Heart for God with a professional look for about $6 (this amount is based on pricing at Office Depot):
Print A Heart for God without the cover on your computer printer using duplex printing (print shops usually offer higher quality color printing so I recommend letting them print the cover). Click here for a printable version of the book without the cover. Blank pages throughout the book are intentional so pages align properly with duplex printing.
Once you’ve found your local Office Depot or favorite print shop, email a PDF of the book’s front cover (you can download the cover here) and ask them to print it on card stock.
Ask the print shop to bind the cover, printed pages, and one piece of white cardstock paper (for the back cover) using spiral binding or comb binding (½ inch).
No. One business owner printed 700 books to give one to each of his 700 employees! (Of course, he observed copyright restrictions: The book was printed in its complete and exact form for no monetary gain.)
I checked into it when I began writing the book several years ago. Amazon’s contract for publishing books has many rules and regulations, including a cap on the amount of time an author can offer their Ebook for free. I decided not to publish the book through Amazon since I’ll always offer A Heart for God as a free Ebook. I started this website instead.
After several people recommended I go this route, I consulted with a literary agent about this possibility but was told publishing companies wouldn’t publish A Heart for God due to my requirement that it be available as a free Ebook on my website.
