Just food for thought.
I know a few folks who have done that, some with sales well into the tens of thousands. It takes good products, well-thought-out marketing, a great deal of planning and preparation, and continuous work. Look at www.bridgehousebooks.com and www.stagecoachpublishing.com and www.deervalleypress.com as examples.
