I picked up an interesting comment today from an editor at Hachai Publishing: “Hard copies remain necessary if books are to be read and enjoyed on Shabbat, during which we do not use computers, handhelds, Kindles, or any other electronic devices.” I understand that in some Jewish traditions, the ancient prohibition against kindling [no pun intended] a fire on the Sabbath is still applied to using anything that runs on electrical or ignition power.
Comprehending the proper question to ask is generally way more important than having a prepared response. First-class questions dispute your own reasoning. Research studies are quite clear that we value people that take note of us. Our objective and goals are unquestionably essentially who we are and who we would like to be. In a sense, tailormade questions are our instrument for supporting to observe the genuine reality around us as opposed to dim representations of it. Request elementary questions concerning the things which everyone else takes for granted. The public is willing to forgive. They want to enjoy a fantastic conversation with you. We achieve things for several different purposes. As you ask somebody as to what accommodates them, it opens the doorway to exploring an issue that is definitely exclusively to this person. It can be a marvelous moment in time for others when you entice them to discuss their aspirations with you. Occasionally you don’t have to offer instructions.
It’s only a PDF. I did not have the vaguest idea how to digitally publish an ebook. Rather than try to figure it out, I wanted to just do a PDF. I knew how to get a designer to make me a PDF, so I did that. The world of digital publishing for the Kindle and Nook and all the other ways completely confused me. So I ignored it. The problem is, the Kindle format is just exploding. I kept getting inquiries from writers about whether I had a Kindle version — and I had to tell them no, I didn’t. Who knows how many sales I lost.

Just because you are self-publishing doesn’t mean you want it to like an amateur did it. Hire a graphic designer on a site like Fiverr.com to create a good-looking cover based on your direction and input for not much money. They can also lay out the interior pages too. Just because your book is self-published doesn't mean it has to look and feel that way.
Consider the value to the customer and what they can get for that price within the same genre. For example, if John Grisham's latest legal thriller is $4.99, you can't really price your first legal thriller at $7.99. I have fiction at free, $2.99 for novellas, $4.99 for full-length novels, $6.99-$8.99 for boxsets, $7.99 for non-fiction and then higher prices for other items.
I am familiar with BuckBooks but i’m not sure how it relates to That’s My eBook. They are both ebook related websites but totally different in operation. BuckBooks requires you to reduce your ebook to $0.99 to make a sale or promote your ebook. Users are forced to join a mailing list and the site is very difficult to navigate through… not to mention the message “SORRY, BUCKS BOOKS IS CURRENTLY CLOSED TO AUTHOR SUBMISSIONS. PLEASE CHECK BACK LATER.” on their submission page.
Price your e-book cheaply: You should sell your e-book for $5.99 or less. According to research done by Smashwords, an online e-book publishing and distribution platform for authors, publishers, agents, and readers, $2.99 to $5.99 yields the most profit for self-published authors, and although 99 cents will get you more downloads, it's a poor price point for earning income (see Smashwords' presentation on pricing here). On the other hand, Lulu, one of the bigger online self-publishing operations, says that authors who price their e-books in the 99-cent to $2.99 range "sell more units and earn more revenue than those in any other price range."
I believe, one of the best ways you can get your book to number one on Amazon by is to make use of these free eBook promoting websites and increasing it\’s popularity. If you do it all at once, it seems to turn viral and in no time, Amazon will see your book increasing in popularity and will display it on their main page.You can also try getting users to place reviews on your Amazon listing. A few reviews with 4+ stars will get your book noticed.CheersNick

Lulu offers four levels of e-book creation and distribution services, ranging from a free do-it-yourself version to the $219 Amplifier, which includes one paperback copy of your book and the option for print distribution to Amazon and BN.com. Lulu offers e-book distribution in the Lulu store, B&N’s Nook bookstore, and Apple’s iBookstore. It does not currently offer distribution to Amazon. Royalties are “90% of the revenue from sales of your e-book” less the commission from sales through B&N and Apple. If a document has images, tables, and footnotes the company recommends contacting Lulu customer support to find out about its “premium” package. E-books take from one to two weeks to be reviewed, approved, and uploaded to the author’s Lulu account for distribution, which makes the wait period a bit longer than other options. Any revision to the text after initial publication requires initiating a new “creation process.” If you haven’t opted for the free DIY service, you are required to purchase a new package in order to make your changes.
Great post and great insight on how to get your ebooks published and where. This post gave me great ideas on a booklet I’m revising for my business. Thought I should publish as a .PDF on my website, but now I’m considering creating it for Kindle too. With the ever-changing audiences and readers demanding more for less, it really is important to be so progressive. I’m diversifying my offerings and this will be one avenue I definitely want to pursue.
You have about three months to promote a new print book (paper back or hardcover) before the bookstores clear their shelves for the next bestseller. But if you can rack up enough pre-orders BEFORE the pub date, then you can kickstart your book launch. Once it hits the New York Times or other lists, then a couple of weeks on those lists become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Again: the more time you give your book to be listed on Amazon and other online retailers BEFORE your publication date, the better.
