Lax Goalie Bible Now In Print Format!

LaxGoalieBook

I’m proud to announce The Lax Goalie Bible is now available in print, paperback format.

When I first released the ebook back in March many folks wanted to know when the physical copy of the book would be available. It’s now available!

You can grab a physical copy of the book here – Lacrosse Goalie Book.

Self-Publishing The Book

Turning an ebook into a physical book was a surprisingly difficult task. I’m sure regular publishers do it with ease but for me, it was tricky.

First was the task of finding a printing and drop shipping service.

Lots of places would print your book for you but minimum order was 100 books or so. Keeping an inventory of my books was just not something I wanted to do. With the large inventory I would have to manage all the orders and shipping which takes time away from what I really love – coaching goalies. Plus me managing all orders is a recipe for mistakes and unhappy customers.

So I needed a book printer / drop shipper to handle my needs.

After extensive search the options seemed slim but I ended up going with Blurb.com but I had to reformat my entire book to fit one of their standard sizes. That was a ton of work.

I would love to say the book is fresh off the printers but I actually only own a few copies. I’m printing the books on-demand as you order them.

The end result is that the books look great. 130 pages with color photos to demonstrate all the drills and the teaching points in the book.

However because I’m just printing the book on-demand, it’s a lot more expensive than I’d like it to be. It also takes about 1-2 weeks from time of order until it’s at your door because they need to make the book before it’s shipped.

If anyone knows of another on-demand book printing and drop shipping service, please reach out to me ([email protected]).

Even if you already have the ebook, it’s worth getting a copy of the physical book. You can write notes in it, take it to the field, and hold it in your precious little hands.

There’s even a few blank pages at the end to jot more notes.

You can order a print copy here – Lacrosse Goalie Book. Be sure to select the Physical book button.

Until next time! Coach Damon

    Hi Coach Damon – I got my copy of your goalie book a few days ago and I just gotta tell you, this book is amazing. By far the most comprehensive resource out there when it comes to books for lacrosse goalies. Congratulations! Please keep producing great content for lacrosse goalies.

    I personally do not like these posts. They don’t provide content on how to be better, which I would like. I’m fin with you posting these, I just would like it to not be the only post that week.

      I understand you feel that way Ryan that’s why I don’t do that many ‘commercial’ posts but there are a ton of readers out there who were very interested in knowing when the physical book was available so they could order one for the goalie in their lives.

    Hi Damon, Any chance of sharing the print-ready file with those of us who have already bought the ebook version? I’d appreciate being able to print out a few pages from time to time and as you say the original file wasn’t so friendly for the printer.

    Just one to consider. Keep up the good work.

    Cheers
    Paul

      Hi Paul – Unfortunately I don’t have a print ready file. I used this specific program to create the book design for physical print and there’s no associated print file that someone could print at home. Anyways, I appreciate the support! Thanks again!
