  • Kindle Direct, or Amazon Self Publishing in general. Someone recently gave me a book they made with their family history and stories. I was astounded and asked about it, and he said that it costs about as much as a greeting card, so he gives them away. I checked into it, and sure enough, it is extremely reasonable to self-publish a physical book on demand 3
    KDP prints your book on demand and subtracts your printing costs from your royalties. That means you don't have to pay any costs upfront or carry any inventory.
    Here is a calculator. 1

    I haven’t tried it, but it looks like you can list a 300-page paperback for $7.99. If you just want to buy a batch and distribute yourself, you can do that, and you make $.34 back in royalties. If all you want to do is publish something to shop around in small quantities, or send links for people to purchase, you can’t really argue with that. Again, the premise isn’t that the writing is for direct income generation, just information distribution in a physical medium. This doesn’t come with any marketing or distribution engine that you may get from a traditional publishing house. This bypasses any vanity publishing middleman and gets a book in your hands for a reasonable price. If you have other motivations or goals, evaluate the tool accordingly.

    print-on-demand publisher Lulu.com 7 to “publish” three books. I have no idea if it’s any better or worse than other print-on-demand services, it’s the one I picked 15 years ago and I’ve never had a problem with them. It’s very easy to use, you just pick a format (paperback, hardback, spiral-bound) and size, upload a pdf of the contents and cover photos, and set the price. Then anyone who wants to buy one can go there and order it, and they get it in a few days. If you ignore their extra add-ons (like editing and marketing services), there are no up-front costs (which is what separates it from a vanity press). The cost of the books is reasonable, too; I sell a 300-page, spiral-bound statistics textbook for $18 US, and I make a couple of dollars in profit.

  • self-publishing is Kindle Direct. It’s owned by Amazon, which has its own problems, but it has about the best options for distribution online, it’s SUPER easy to use, you can publish both paperbacks and ebooks of the same title, and if you want to order paperbacks for gifting or resale the wholesale cost for the author is very reasonable. The only downside is that it’s really hard to get KD books into actual bookstores, but if you do get a shop interested you can decide what your wholesale price is going to be and then the shop pays you. If you don’t have enough books in hand, you can just have an order shipped directly from KD to the shop

  • shed in academia, which has similar niche issues, but has a group of libraries who are reliable customers and hence subsidize printing runs. I’m not sure your client has that and hence doesn’t get much economy of scale.

    Like you, I respect what he is trying to accomplish – but maybe the easiest thing is to self-distribute his work as a PDF or ebook, or to self-publish using a print-on-demand company to produce hardcopies as needed. (My grandfather did the latter with his memoires, and we descendants are glad to have it.)
