Gary,I agree. I actually got my husband to get really really good at this and now he is doing the formatting and publishing for others, and of course he is doing all of my books. It helps to do a professional publish because as you say,it is very important to make the right impression with our books. I am so happy that Amazon brought us the Kindle store. It is an amazing platform!
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?
Great post, Carol. I am sooo looking forward to the webinar on Wednesday. I am working on a series of ebooks; but with the intention of combining them into one big book (with each booklet representing a chapter) once they are all complete. Maybe I should keep them all separate? Also, I haven’t used Kindle format because I have a few pages in some that need printed. My understanding is you can’t print from a Kindle. Guess that’s another question for Wed.?
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.
Most of the popular public torrent sites such as The Pirate Bay, Torrentz2, IsoHunt, etc. are having mixed content such as movies, music, software, games and eBooks. However, there are private torrent sites such as Bibliotik, MyAnonamouse.net, Ebook Shares, etc., which have mostly e-books. Also, if you are new to torrents, then you should have a torrent client such as qBittorrent, uTorrent, Deluge, etc.
Not your typical eBook marketplace, Slicebooks offers a platform for you to essentially sell sections of your eBooks or other content. So if your business books have some helpful chapters or snippets, you can use this platform to repurpose and sell just those parts for people who may not be interested in an entire eBook. Pricing starts at $9 per month.
The discussion about the best sites to download the ebook from torrent will be incomplete unless you give a special mention to this site. As for the genre of books, it covers all the probable topics of choice, ranging from Lifestyle, Business, Science & Fiction, Economics, Politics, Business, Health and various others. One of the features of this site that deserves a special mention is that it allows sub-categorization that makes it easier for the readers to easily find the books of their choice.
'The Book-hunter in London' is the outcome not only of material which has been accumulating for many years past, from published and unpublished sources, but also of a long and pleasant intercourse with the leading book-collectors and booksellers in London, not to mention a vigorous and constant prosecution of one of the most pleasant and instructive of hobbies. The author has freely availed himself of the information in the works of Dibdin, Nichols, and other writers on the subject, but their statements have been verified whenever possible, and acknowledgements have been made in the proper places to the authorities laid under contribution.

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!

Clickbank has a really strong affiliate network of 500,000 marketers that will surely boost your sales. It is also a product selling website like others and gives you the ability to create custom forms, subscriptions, fraud protection and much more. You can either keep 50% as royalty or pay $49.95 as a one-time fee for your store and pay 7.5% fee on transactions.
Speakaboos has what appears to be a large collection of free stories for reading and listening online.  All are in a flash player.  The site is very slow to load pages.  Each of the images on the page linked seems to lead to at least 4 stories each and the images on the bottom half circle also lead to addtional free stories (the ones I check all were accompanied by songs.  Geared to younger children.
If you’re asking if you should learn how to make ePub and Mobi files on your own, I’d say you don’t want to — hire a pro if you want to control those files and be able to sell all formats on your own site, as you can see me doing here: http://www.makealivingwriting.com/ebooks. Also hire someone if you want great design — it does make a difference in sales, in my experience.
BookBaby offers global distribution to the major e-book retailers including Amazon, Kobo, Nook, and iBookstore. With three publishing packages to choose from, authors can supply their own e-pub file for free or opt to pay $99 for the conversion. Royalties are 85% of net for the free and standard packages and 100% of net with the premium package ($249). All packages include access to the company’s Book Promo program, which includes a social media marketing guide, coupons for book trailer production companies and publicity services, and “guaranteed book reviews.” A great feature is the free “BookShop” page, which includes information about the author’s book and buy buttons for the various retailers. BookBaby can assign e-book ISBNs for $19. E-books take from five to 10 days from upload to appearing in stores, depending on whether the author supplied a file that needed conversion. BookBaby also offers basic cover design for $149 and deluxe cover design for $279. Once authors have published their books they will incur a fee for any subsequent changes to the text (10 changes costs $50, for example). Like Kobo and KDP, BookBaby offers authors additional marketing opportunities to promote and sell their work.

Smashwords offers a free style guide for formatting your e-book. Although Smashwords encourages authors to keep things simple, you can still create a professional-quality e-book with Smashwords that includes a linked table of contents, NCX navigation, and custom paragraph styling. A couple of years ago, I created an acceptable-looking e-book in about 30 minutes after making some tweaks (usually they involve spacing between chapter breaks) and reprocessing my file three times. If you follow Smashwords' guidelines, you can end up with a professional-quality "reflowable" e-book that looks as good as what many of the big publishers are putting out and reads well on any screen size.

I recommend a multichannel approach — approach the marketing from several different angles. One definite channel is social media. Leverage your Facebook page, Twitter, LinkedIn contacts, and more to get the word out. When the book is published, post it on Facebook with a link back to your website with more information and a way to order, for example.

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.
Pricing: Some services have limits on how to price your book. For instance, Amazon doesn’t allow authors to offer their books for free, and both Amazon and Kobo offer different royalties in different price ranges. This may not be a bad thing (after all, they know the pricing “sweet spots”), but you want to avoid getting stuck in a situation where you don’t like the price and can do nothing about it. Finding the right price for your ebook is not easy; choose a platform where you can experiment before committing.

The Oz Series  Most people think there is only the one book (Wizard of Oz), but there are 40 "official" books in the Oz series and several more "unofficial" Oz books.  The official series started in 1900 and continued until 1963.  I have located copies of the first 38 of the 40 official Oz books and have provided links to them.  I have also located a few of the unofficial Oz works and will be posting up those links soon.  This was one of my favorites as a child and I hope you enjoy them also.
Thank you for this very helpful website. We are trying to get all our ducks in a row to publish our new book by May 2012. This process is a bit confusing and you have helped me a lot on this. I was dissapointed to see how much droid and apple apps are to create. This was going to be a critical step in jumping ahead. We have our blog and hitting 60,000 hits a month since Jan 2012 so I think we have a good base for our new book on relationships. Professor Thomas Nagle has been trying to get this book together for 15 years lol. Visit us on tipsforlove.net Thank you so much for writing this. What do you think? Is 60,000 hits a month on a blog good enough to publish? I have not paid for advertising but instead used facebook and twitter to market this idea?

Molly, you can have perfectly formatted ebooks from Word using two free programs: Aspose.wordsEXPRESS to turn your properly formatted Word document into an epub file, then Calibre to set the meta data and add an ebook cover. Calibre will convert your epub file to Mobi (and many other formats) and give you a file that can be uploaded to Amazon very easily. The process takes minutes. No Htlm fussing around – you can download Kindle for PC or Mac to preview your book. If you see errors, just edit your original Word document and run it through the process again! I will send you a free copy of my short guide about this (it has screenshots) if you tell me where to send it?

This free ebook converter has some optional ways to input ebook files. You can simply drag the ebooks you want to convert and drop them into the program. Or you can open a browser window to navigate to the source folder to input ebook files directly. It also intelligently detects and inputs all ebook files included in a folder and its sub-folder. That's how it makes things easier from the start.


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.

There is not a single electronic reader or computer application that can identify all types of ebooks out there downloaded from various websites. Sometimes it's really a pain having to re-purchase the same ebook in another format required by your device. Any EBook Converter Free will get you out of this plight. Just feed it with any ebook you purchased or downloaded for free and you'll get the format you want instead.

However, I have to comment about the book you used for art at the top of this post. Paula McLain’s critically acclaimed novel, The Paris Wife, a New York Times best seller and winner of many awards, is NOT a self-published e-book. Nor, is it your book. Yes, Paula’s novel — still selling well in hardcover — is available on a Kindle. But it is misleading to include it next to a declaration that you’ve just finished writing your first e-book. As artists, we all need to guard against even the appearance of appropriating others’ creative work as our own. Or, of using others’ art without credit. The post didn’t explain why you used her book as an example. And neither she, nor her novel, were identified, despite being featured prominently.
However, at times it gets blocked in many countries and running it through the proxy, as it is the only option you get left with. I decided to include this site on the list because you can search for almost anything, as it gives a list of many torrent sites that has the searched item. So there is a real passivity that you will find the EBook you’re searching.
