Considering Publishing A Short Print-Run of My Poetry Chapbooks

Recently, I've received some feedback from a few readers saying that they would be interested in purchasing my poetry chapbooks titled Waiting: Ghazals http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TN2GWCG and Impetus: Ghazals http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00W1SYVDQ if they were available in print (paperback). I am considering publishing a short print-run of these chapbooks, but I am wondering how much reader interest there is in the availability of these books in print. My other option is to create homemade copies on a print-on-demand basis. Don't worry... I'll make them look pretty. Note: If you would be interested in buying a professionally-printed copy, please leave a comment here stating 'I want one'. Depending on the responses to this post, I will decide what direction to take and determine the price listing for creation and mailing of my poetry chapbooks. I will post an update about my decision and, if I don't receive enough responses to justify a short-print run, I will then offer to make print-on-demand copies for anyone who would like one (to order one, I will ask you to send me a PM). I would most likely sell my chapbooks through a PayPal link on my author website at http://andreamckenzieraine.com/. I may also publish printed copies through Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) on Amazon. Thank you so much, everyone. Happy reading! Cheers, Andrea McKenzie Raine xo
