Great to see you here and awesome post. A great mix of the high level and details. Great timing too as I’m debating whether to convert my amazon book to kindle and also planning on writing a new one for kindle. I’m going to come back to read the comments because I see that there’s a lot of great info in there as well. Thanks again for the great post!
EPUB to PDF Converter can support many epub versions at the same time, which are very popular epub versions now. Therefore, no matter what kind of device your e-reader device is, it can recognize all the files converted from EPUB. To handle more files simultaneously, it also supports batch handling mode, that is to say, you can convert many EPUB files to Adobe PDF books quickly at the same time.
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).
Very timely post — I’m in the brainstorming phase of re-formatting a lot of my online course content into a Kindle format and love your idea of creating a suite of comprehensive learning products. I do wonder about Sean’s prediction and how it translates to laying on your belly reading a book on the beach–I’ll take sand in my pages over my Kindle any day.
Any EBook Converter Free is a free ebook converter that can batch convert a massive amount of ebooks in a short time to the format that suits your devices. It is a multithreaded converter with ability to run up to 16 conversion tasks simultaneously instead of monotonously selecting and processing single ebook files. You can flexibly set the maximum parallel conversion processes allowed.
When you want to convert AZW to PDF, it can recognize Kindle AZW file version automatically, and optimize for different version, which makes the converted PDF files keep the same with the original file in displaying effect(eg: layout and appearance). After the continuous improvement of programmed algorithms, most AZW books can be converted successfully and kept in best conversion quality. You can save or transfer the converted PDF files to other e-reader to read easily.
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:
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."
Very few torrenting sites survive the storm brought about by copyright infringement authorities, and The Pirate Bay (aka TPB) is one of them. In spite of being closed down multiple times, the site still continues to operate in full swing. You’ll find a massive range of e-Books in its database, ranging across a wide array of genres such as contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, non-fiction, travel guides, etc. Note that in some regions TPB has been blocked so you can use a proxy site to get access to the content. Once you’re on the site, simply key in whichever e-Book you wish to download, and voila! You can look for The Pirate Bay proxy sites on this webpage.
As for the library blocking one of our sites, well, libraries block for any number of reasons but most likely it was because we featured a bargain erotica book for the Kindle somewhere and a library scanner didn't like a suggestive word. Our sites don't discriminate against book postings by category--our philosophy is, if Amazon sells it, we'll promote it. I think that's fair.
