Have you ever thought about publishing an eBook?
In today’s market, eBook sales are surpassing those of hardcover books. With the convenience of having an entire library at your fingertips, authors can’t afford not to have their work available in the virtual book world. But how do you go about getting it there? I want to give you a step-by-step guide to getting your eBook done.
1. Decide to publish an eBook.
This might sound obvious, but it really is the first step. You will never successfully publish and eBook, if you never decide to!
2. Decide on the content.
Whether you are re-formatting a previous book, or coming up with new content, you have to have content to publish before you can move forward.
3. Format your eBook.
Formatting an eBook for Kindle is not the same as formatting a hardcover book. There are certain things that won’t transfer, others that are just plain not allowed, and others that are a must. Before successfully publishing an eBook, you have to have it formatted correctly.
4. Submit your eBook.
That may sound like a given, but each epublishing platform has a different submission process. Some provide the ISBN number s for your book, while others require you to purchase your own. There are a lot of little things that are different in each one. If you have everything ready to go, it takes less than an hour to upload your book to Kindle.
5. Promote your eBook.
Once you have your eBook out there, you need to tell people about it! There are so many different ways to get the word out about your book. Pick some and get started!!
