FreeBookSpot.es is one of the best ebook torrent sites where you can find almost any ebook on the internet. There are over 100 categories such as History, Cooking, Psychology, Mathematics, Fiction and so on. You can easily find your favorite book by searching with the name of the author, title, and genre etc. You will find a lot of details like comments, no. of pages, ISBN/ASIN, format and so many to have a quick glance at the book you are going to download.
Just a few short years ago, the people who were most familiar with the ebook format were either internet marketers or their regular customers. It was a limited audience in many respects. Now, the general public knows what an ebook is and may be interested in having/buying it. Pricing is a lot lower because they’re now usually compared to print minus printing costs, but the audience is much much bigger I think.
However, in an effort to attract authors Booktango is offering a true 100 percent royalty rate until July 4. And the Web site says that if you publish an e-book with Booktango by July 4, you'll retain that 100 percent rate for the life of that book. That means if you make a sale through Booktango's e-book store, you'll get the full amount of the sale (I'm not sure if credit card fees are deducted or not). You'll also get the full 100 percent net of the sale when selling through other e-booksellers (Apple, Amazon, and others will take their 30 percent cut, of course).
As for the Kindle, well, Smashwords says it's still waiting for Amazon to update its KDP intake systems so it automatically can ingest Smashwords titles as other retailers do (the 200 or so titles that Smashwords has loaded into KDP have been loaded manually). Amazon encourages authors to upload directly through KDP, so I wouldn't count on this happening anytime soon.
All promotions must run a minimum of two days if they are to be approved by our editorial staff. There are several reasons for this minimum rule, the most important being that it can take more than 24 hours for our ads to propagate throughout our Social Networks and members of our email newsletter list often times open the emails the day after they are received. Two days of promotion make for better market saturation and a more likely chance for readers to discover your eBook.
Mollie, I hope you discovered how to format your own ebooks from Word to Kindle and Nook, too. This can be done using a couple of free software programs so that your Kindle ebook looks exactly like it did in Word – I wrote a guide about this that is for sale on Amazon right now – but you can discover how to do this by searching YouTube, as well – there are some tutorial there that explain the process!
As you can make it from the name of the site itself, it offers the users a massive library with books covering areas like Classic, Academics, Lifestyle, Science, Business, Finance, and various others. Thus, irrespective of your choice, you are going to find the most relevant solutions to your quest, under one roof. You need to give a special mention to the point that this site offers a robust platform for the upcoming authors by providing them with a stage to showcase their talents to the readers from around the globe. In addition, the site offers a chance to join its Affiliate program and earn referral commission to the extent of 25% on each sale.
The prefix “wiki” has perhaps already gotten your interest peaked. While Wikibooks doesn’t really have anything to do with Wikipedia, it does have a large database of books under its umbrella for you to enjoy. What’s unique about this source is that you can get e-books in several languages including Dutch, English, Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Polish. You first have to pick a language and then type in the title you’re trying to find.
Believe it or not, you might already have most of an ebook written already. If you are already making money with a blog, those blog posts could be turned into an ebook with some editing. Simply collect relevant blog posts into an order that makes sense, make any needed edits so that references that aren’t relevant are taken out, and add an introduction and conclusion, and you’re done. Any blog posts you use should cover the same or related topics and work well together.
Luckily for you, we’ve sifted through the wheat from the chaff on your behalf. We looked at the best online ebook converters for every format 5 High-Quality Online Ebook Converters for Every Format 5 High-Quality Online Ebook Converters for Every Format Ebooks with their multiple formats can be confusing. These faultless online ebook converters will serve your every need. Read More and found these five to be the best:
Vintage Cookbooks includes in their collection of vintage cookbooks a collection of vintage cookbooks from the late 1800s to 1950s for children. These will popup in an online reader, but if you look on the upper left of the reader, there is a link to OPen Library where the book may be downloaded in a wide variety of ebook formats. No registration needed.
In our opinion, this is perhaps the best torrent site if you’re seeking nothing else other than e-books. Be it “Cooking”, “Computers”, “History”, “Fiction”, “Biography”, “Business”, or “Self-help”, you’ll find almost every genre under the sun on this site. Moreover, it has an impressive list of categories for easy browsing; a feature that lacks on the torrent sites mentioned above. You can even search for books as per their author, title, or subject. As of now, there are more than 4,00,000 books, and that is huge! Since this site is dedicated to e-books, its a brilliant option for avid readers.
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.
I’m currently wavering on exactly how to publish it – yes you can get Kindle apps on all devices but some people have different preferences (such as Stanza, or iBooks) and want to be able to read books there, there’s also the issue that some people have ereaders which are not Kindles (I used to be one of them, and I have many friends who own Sonys or Nooks), I guess it partially depends on what kind of book you’re publishing and the target audience 🙂
[…] I have followed Jane Friedman since she was the editor of Writer’s Digest. She then went to teaching in Cincinnati and also for Writer’s Digest University as well as lecturing out at writing seminars, starting her own blog in the process. A few years ago she was called up to the Virginia Quarterly Review though somehow she still writes for her website and teaches at Writer’s Digest webinars and conferences. Recently, she has compiled a Self-Publishing toolbox, of sorts, with everything a person could possibly hope for in one nifty package. This is basically a book itself, though she… Read more »
There really is no right or wrong answer here, I don’t think. As long as it’s easy to read, navigate, and see, then it shouldn’t be a problem. So if it’s a cookbook, I’d say maybe have a picture on one page, then when someone hits next on their Kindle or slides their finger, the recipe is on the following. Something like that. Or have it so the picture fits on the far left or right, and the recipe in say, bullet form, on the opposite side.
FreeBookSpot as the name suggests is an eBook links library comprising of numerous downloadable eBooks across categories. There are 90 plus categories of books under various genres including engineering, scientific, fiction, programming etc. you don’t have to register with them to download the books. You have a brief and quick registration process and you can create favorites after being a member to mark torrents for future downloads. You can add and share favorite book links here as well.
Verify your publishing territories. If you are self-publishing and you hold all the rights, you just click, “Worldwide.” If you are already traditionally published, you may own rights in other territories. For example, say you published with a publisher in the US and sold only the US rights, you could self-publish in the UK or Australia or any other country. You can select individual territories and deselect the ones that you have sold to someone else.
Other features: KDP Select allows you to take a 90-day exclusive digital distribution deal — in return, you’ll get your books available in the Kindle Lending Library, where Amazon Prime members can “check out” their books for free with no due dates. (You get paid royalties for every book borrowed.) You can also choose between Kindle Countdown Deals or a free book promotion.
If you have a lot of images in your book or a lot of complicated tables, then you will have more problems in formatting. You will also have a bigger file size, and although ebooks are typically free in terms of delivery, Amazon does include a delivery cost in their pricing setup. That will be higher if you have a bigger file, and images can really expand the file size. If your delivery cost goes too high, you’re not going to make much royalty. So, it’s really important to consider the size of your file.
It's hard to say what advantages Lulu has over competitors like Smashwords but at least the royalty rates appear to be the same. Weirdly, I found the Lulu Web site to be straightforward yet convoluted at the same time. For instance, I couldn't figure out whether Lulu distributes your e-book to any retailers beyond Lulu.com, Apple, and Barnes & Noble. From what I saw on the site, it appears they don't.

Thank you for a well-written and well-formatted post. I’ve tried to scan all 182 comments and answers (!) but forgive me if this has already been addressed… I’m going to publish with KDP then opt-out @ 90 days so I can sell via my own site. I believe Word play better than Pages with KDP due to conversion issues to .mobi. My content will consist of stories, photographs and recipes – so I anticipate formatting nightmares.
Lastly, it's worth noting that Smashwords provides free ISBNs. I'm not going to get into a full on discussion of ISBN, which is "a unique identifier" associated with your e-book, but most companies provide a free ISBN for your e-book or roll the price up into a package. Smashwords has a good quick guide to e-book ISBNs that you should take a look at.
An authorpreneur is an author – traditionally or self-published – who adapts the savvy ways of an entrepreneur in order to build a business and grow multiple revenue streams around their book. In this guest post, Dave has asked me to share with you guys how I’ve managed to build a business around my debut novel Umbilicus, which I self-published in 2016.
ChildrensBooksForever has a nice collection of books in pdf. Additional comments from Cathy of PuzzlEd "I checked out ChildrensBooksForever and the books are just delightful! Gorgeous pictures and some good themes for primary-school kids (anger, bullying etc). Over 20 books available to download and use on computer, Smartboards etc, as well as viewing online (and in quite a variety of languages, too, apparently). Excellent for school or home use."

And as for the problem, I’m a fourteen year old (aspiring) author and I’m looking to self-publish my novel through KDP. But I really feel like it’s a sort of cop-out– just slapping it up on the internet and advertising. Like giving up without trying. I really want to share my work with others, but I don’t want just a few people to see it, I want it to be more than that. I’m not saying I will be disappointed with anything less than J.K. Rowling-worthy sales, but it would be comforting to know that it isn’t just uselessly floating around on the internet. Does any of that make sense? Furthermore, my current plan is to be a novelist for a living, and I feel like I might as well get myself out there sooner than later, right? Get started while my parents will still support me, build up my own little army of people wanting another book, and be set for a while?
