I feel like giving it for free to as many people as possible, however the changes of getting it in the hands of as many people as possible may be very costly messge if I sell it then that can cover the costs of reaching more people with the message. This is a hugely important question. Thanks for asking it. You have to first understand the goal of your book. Book sales are a terrible return on investment for The real value is in growing your business and creating new opportunities for more substantial returns.
You can often put the same amount of energy into selling a book and gaining a few bucks as you would into creating a new client depending on your business that can be substantial revenue. So know your goals. If your goal is to use your book as a lead generator for your business, then sure, you want to make it available for sale wherever people buy books at least onlinebut you want to get that messaeg into the hands of as many potential clients as possible. So plan on giving away lots of them for free.
To do that, you're going to need a printing partner who knows how to worte you fantastic bulk discount rates so you're spending no more than a few bucks a book. What you also have to consider is that if your book is going to be your calling card, it has to be exceptional.
Not good. Not alright. But exceptional. It has to capture the essence of you. Your voice has to resound through the writing.
And it has to be a turner. So hire the right expert or team to help to ensure you are showing off your brand in a way that excites the kind of people you want to attract.

Book of psalms overview - insight for living ministries
This is a great question. The best way I can answer it is to say that ths world of indy book publishing is closely following the direction that the indy music world went about a decade ago. The bands and artists who were willing to "give away" their material actually became huge stars, and the artists and labels who tue afraid of "theft" suffered at the hands of Napster, and a public that increasingly wanted "free" music.
In the publishing industry, this takes the form of ebook giveaways now.
Who wrote the gospels?
We have one author who recently "gave away" 37, books in one day on Amazon during a promotion. What is he thee able to say? He has 50, books in distribution. How many has he actually sold? Probably around at this point, but that will continue to climb as the 49, people who downloaded woh book free over the different giveaway days "actually" read his book, and recommend it on to others, or buy a paperback copy for themselves.
Woh look at the opposite case study that I always cite. Very little. Build up your social media presence, build up your readership, and you will then build a community around this. That community will allow you to fulfill your dreams, whether coaching, authoring, speaking, dancing, or building ships. Please don't mortgage your house or invest more money than you can afford for a "hobby".
And, my personal belief is that if you don't have wo, it's not worth it! If you succeed in getting your message out to 10 people or 10 million, you are changing the world. So, blessings to you on that great mission!

Very few people make money on their books. I have written four, and have made money on two of mewsage, but even that is rare. In most cases, you write a book because it gives you a bigger platform. So when you answer this question for yourself, don't think about the money you make from the book itself but from the opportunities that the book provides. In that context, the rule of thumb is to give away one book for every two books that tbe sell.
But it's not quite as simple as that, because money is the currency of respect, and there's very little branding value in giving away a free book. You get tons of mileage, though, from giving away a book that thr would otherwise have to pay for.
Who wrote the letter of james?
So here's the answer: price the book normally, and then give away copies. Have you considered Messagge your book? If enough people have read it and believe in your message, you could use their testimonials to crowdfund it lots of new websites who can help you here. I use my book to build credibility and to get me in the door of larger companies, then I "throw" in the book as a freebie when I'm negotiating my fee to come in and speak or train.
