There are reports in the traditional press about the slowing down of ebook sales in the US, but this is skewed by data that only report on books with ISBNs. Many indies, myself included, don’t use ISBNs for ebooks. In fact, Author Earnings reports in October 2015 that 33% of all ebooks sold in the US don’t have ISBNs and none of those sales are counted in the traditional press reports. The Feb 2016 report demonstrated that the percentage market share of ebooks by indie authors only continues to grow in the US market.

Great, informative, and straight-to-the-point article Paul. Thanks! I’m gathering a lot of information about e-publishing on the Kindle platform on our ‘Write2Profit’ Writer’s Website, and this is really helpful. As a Kindle ‘newbie’ I’m also hoping to publish some e-Books on Kindle shortly, so again – thanks for a really useful and informative article. I’m off to get your free e-Book now, so thanks for that, too!

Dailylit uses different concept, it delivers selected ebook in installements to you. Just pick your book and what time of day you want your installments delivered and you’re set.

With the advent of technology there is now a growing number of resources where you can download your favorite e-book from such as Textbook Nova. Moreover, you can also get a digital copy of your book through different torrent clients online. However, exploring the world of torrent can always be tricky and risky. Always have the keen eyes for reliable sources of torrent files and never miss to install an antivirus software to protect your device from getting infected.

The entire above-listed torrent site has their own pros and cons. Majority of the sites is meant not only for e-books. You can download movies, games and many more. If you can afford to buy your favorite e-book then go ahead and buy those books on Amazon or other websites. This article is for those people who cannot afford/willing to buy the e-books.
Hi Paul, Thanks for this guide. Do all these steps 9esp uploading, payment etc) also work internationally, do you know? The reason I ask is because Kindle doesn’t work in Pakistan (where I am) and I can’t access the browser/web kindle app either. Thanks for your thoughtful and detailed post. Writing my first-for-Kindle ebook and hoping to work out the kinks soon!
I should also say that everybody comes to the self-publishing process with a different agenda -- and a different book --and some e-book self-publishing options will appeal to you based on the type of book you have (aside from the iBooks Author reference, this article is slanted to publishing more text-based e-books rather than books with lots of illustrations or graphic images, such as children's books). For those who are publishing an e-book as an experiment or "just to get it out there" and who are less concerned with making money and extracting every last dime out of a sale, aggregators offer a convenient solution to get your book in a variety of e-book stores and roll up your sales into one single record that you can easily track (most companies pay out earnings from e-books within 60 to 90 days; Amazon is 60).

Free Read Feed (UK) has over 5,000 free ebook listings from Amazon (UK).  They monitor recent free offerings as well as showing some that are always free.  Like their USA counterpart below, the site offers sorting by genre, time offered, length and popularity.  This link is to the Children's Non-Fiction, Children's Fiction and Children and Teens genre listings.
It's also worth noting that you can mix and match and go direct with Amazon (KDP), uploading your own file and managing your account, and then use an aggregator such as Smashwords for additional distribution to other e-book stores. At this point there are no hard and set rules and, as I said in the beginning, the e-book market is very fluid, seeing significant changes almost every month. As always, please feel free to post your opinion in the comments section, particularly if you've had experience publishing your e-book already and can share your observations with others. And remember, Google is your best friend for the finer parts of self-publishing, such as converting a Word file to a PDF.
Amazon has an abundance of lists, such as Top Rated lists, Bestsellers List, Hot New Release list, Gift Idea lists, Top-100 lists for each category, “If you like this you may …” lists, “So you want to” lists and Top Rated Author Lists. When someone downloads your book (for free or paid), it moves up the charts. A lot more people will see it then, compared to before your free days.  Being more visible when the book is reverted back to a paid download, means more people can find it, and will results in more sales.  When people download your book, it starts appearing in the “People who bought this book also bought..” and “Recommended for you” sections, even more increasing visibility.
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."
One of the ways we have built our blog up to reaching 111 countries and 60,000 hits between our 2 sites is to leave the article hanging when we write it.. they read the article and get the gist but we leave it open on the end. The rest will be in the upcoming book. I don’t know if we have enough to publish yet in interest what do you think? I found it interesting that men don’t come into our tipsforlove.net site but they will come in and read the same articles on my projecttroops.org site. It’s macho and means it ok to read..but tipsforlove? I think they think it’s to female oriented to read. This is important to know if starting a blog.. will you get the readers in with your title? Thanks Tamra Lynn Smith and best of luck to you all.
As for Sean Platt’s comment: look back ten/twenty years and tell me how many digital documents you can still read from that time. Now tell me how many paper documents you can still read from then. Paper will not go away in our lifetime – it’s still the only durable medium we have – digital formats change and the equipment we use to access digital changes so rapidly that we have to upgrade every three or four years or get left out of the loop. (Do you still have a Palm device, for example? Fewer than ten years and they, and everything on them, essentially became obsolete.)
I don't have a problem with that and think it's great that Apple offers iBooks Author for free. But the one thing that does bother me is Apple's failure to provide a free ISBN for your e-book. Instead, it tells you to get your own and provides a link to Bowker's Identifiers Services page. Bowker's charges $125 for a single ISBN or 10 for $250. The price drops to single digits when you buy thousands of ISBNs as other self-publishing outfits do. (You can buy a single ISBN for less than $125, but I'd prefer not get into all that). In short, it's patently absurd that Apple's making its authors pay $125 for ISBN number, and I think it's deterring a lot of people from publishing an iBook directly with Apple.

Did you know that e-book sales are projected to account for about a quarter of global book sales by 2018? This is because there has been a shift from a print to digital industry in some media and educational platforms. Consumer e-books are forecast to generate a revenue of 20 billion US dollars by 2018 according to statistics. This can be attributed to the significant increase of e-books sold in the United States from approximately 69 million copies in 2010 to 266 million copies in 2017. According to WrittenWord Media, 2018 is the year of indie authors for they will continue to produce affordable and high-quality e-books and price their books below the market of traditional publishers, who tend to focus on their go-to franchises. Nevertheless, both traditional and indie writers will have so much in store for all the bookworms out there. 


Generally speaking, if a company charges you for publishing your book and is fairly vague about what they are spending your money on, be alert. Once you sign your rights away, it is difficult to get them back. Other than vanity publishers, there are several companies that act as retailers and distributors and offer some publishing services (conversion or editing) as well. There are some things you’ll need to consider before signing up anywhere:
With Any EBook Converter Free you can read PDF anywhere you want because it supports almost all e-reader devices to make ebook reading a facile enjoyment. It provides conversion presets for Amazon Kindle, iRiver Story, B&N Nook, Kobo, Sony Reader, iPad, iPhone, Android devices and many other tablets and mobile phones that have ebook reading ability, more than 200!!! This is an almighty ebook converter that works for all people.
This is terrifically wrong and misleading. You can’t publish a book for free if you want quality (and if you don’t want quality, why bother at all? just write anything, forget about covers, descriptions, formatting – it after all it’s garbage anyway). Your friend or your English teacher won’t provide a viable editing (and viable editing is so much more than just spellcheck). If you think otherwise, you’re delusional.
I should also say that everybody comes to the self-publishing process with a different agenda -- and a different book --and some e-book self-publishing options will appeal to you based on the type of book you have (aside from the iBooks Author reference, this article is slanted to publishing more text-based e-books rather than books with lots of illustrations or graphic images, such as children's books).
