Literally just watch you because your voice is so soothing. Have you considered doing ASMR poetry? Reply KARLIE KLOSS 😂i died ps: love the color scheme in this video 10/10 Reply woah. i wanted to self publish in the U.S. and at minimum just to get your book out there (not including printing or any costs you mentioned – like an editor) it is about $800. Reply Sav you should do a Q&A on your novel, btw we should collab on some poetry next time. I also have a novel finished and is in the process of editing. Reply The first cover of Graffiti was so pretty 🙁 I loved it, wish you hadn't changed that particular thing Reply I've been following you for years now, and I'm a little ashamed of not knowing that you published a poetry book, I mean, I use Youtube pretty randomly and I don't watch every video of every youtuber that I'm suscribed to but time to time I enter your channel and just listen to you, is relaxing and I find you incredibly smart. Probably I won't be able to get a copy of your book (Venezuela issues) but still I'm pretty happy to know that you actually wrote it and make all of this by yourself. Congrats Savannah and I hope that you keep creating good content. Reply This was super cool! Very impressive! Very great lighting btw Reply this was so incredibly interesting and helpful!! i had never considered self-publishing, but after this i’ll definitely give it some thought Reply I use https://www.blurb.com/ Reply I’ve watched Savannah for so long it’s like she’s my big sister or my cousin or something. Like there’s always been this distant yet warm and wholesome connection and I learn from her just talking about stuff because she makes good points and idk I just feel for this woman in like a familial way she’s so sweet Reply I have one of the signed 1st edition as well as 2 of your posters. So great to hear it did this well, keep it up!! Reply Man why do I love watching your videos 😂 Reply I want to say at first, that I'm proud that graffiti gone so far <3 I really hope you could write more because I was inspired to write because of your poetries Ate Sav.. Reply Thank you for talking about how your audience is why the book initially did well. So many YouTubers become bestsellers because they have a huge audience but just think they they're book is amazing 😂 yours is though lol Reply Thank you for this incredibly informative video. Reply This was super helpful thank you so much! Is it the same sort of thing if I'm publishing a children's book? Would appreciate any advice on that xox Reply Clicked on the vid bc I have the same shirt as u!!! Reply Step 1: have 20,000 fansStep 2: profit Reply Thank you for making this video. I’m currently in the process of self publishing through Amazon (The Wall of Nova preorder Saturday) and you have useful tips, including margins which I hadn’t thought about Reply Amazon does pay for the ISBN, I know because I worked with them with my poetry book 🙂 also totally relate to having to ship out a ton of books all at once…not easy!! Love your video!! Reply pay artists, kids Reply that Karlie Kloss impression had me WEAK Reply I want to publish at some point! But, I’m so young and don’t want to blow all my money for university also I don’t think people will read poems from a 15 years old girl so I’ll just keep writing and editing until I get a good sum of well-written poems and figure out what I’ll do when I’m 18…20…25…maybe. This answered a bunch of questions I had, thank you!! Reply this isnt about the publishing, it's more about the writing and creativity of the book, but how did you write through the creativity block? i find myself in writers block so often and i never know how to get over it Reply this actually inspired me to publish more of my writings…. 🙈 this was so informational and awesome! thanks for the insight! Reply This is so interesting because I just went through a similar process of self publishing a book, only it wasn't mine and I helped out a poet! Basically did everything but write the thing. It's a lot more stressful than you'd think and I think the people behind books and authors get way too little credit Reply there once was a young writerlingwho sat in her room wonderingwhy is it wherever i looki see an envelope or a bookthat writer was self-publishing Reply Very insightful 💛 Reply As an artist YES PLEASE PAY THE ARTIST Reply I recently wrote and illustrated an LGBT children's book for a school project (an EPQ along side my A-Levels), everyone has told me to publish it properly and I'm super scared about it! This video has helped though. Thank you! 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
