Now that Amazon allows independent authors to publish to the Kindle market, anybody who ever wanted to learn how to write a book is now asking about how to publish a book.
Literally anybody can write and publish to the Amazon Kindle store, but there's a learning curve and it can be pretty steep if you try to go it alone. Why not take advantage of the wisdom that self-publishers are offering to independent authors?
People have been publishing their own books for a while and making "A KILLING" in the marketplace.
It used to be that authors would have to submit a manuscript to a publishing house, and usually the heart and soul they put into their work would only bring back rejection and disappointment.
So, what's the best way to get started publishing your own stuff to Amazon's Kindle market? Glad you asked...
First, decide what type of book you'd like to write.
Next, Research the Kindle market to see if there is demand for your book and if the marketplace is flooded with quality books on your topic.
Then, write the book yourself or outsource it to an independent author.
Finally, upload the book to Amazon Kindle.
Sound complicated? It's easier than you think and if you click on the link JUST BELOW this video, we'll show you just how simple it can be to become a published author in today's marketplace...
Nowadays people are switching from physical books to electrical versions of the books and it has increased the demand of eBook conversion services to a great extent. In fact, Amazon recently reported that the company is selling more eBooks than printed books.
There are various steps that are involved in the conversion of a normal book to an eBook. As a result the authors mainly look for an eBook conversion company that helps the authors to take them through the process. To find a good eBook Publishing Companythat can meet your needs, you have to make a list of all the requirements that you want them to provide you.
There are many things you should keep in mind while selecting the eBook Publishing Services. Let us have a look over the points.
If the service provider is capable of processing your source file? Can the company do children’s book conversion? That is changing the format of the children books into eBook format?
Ask the company if they can create the files for the reading devices that you want because different users use different file formats according to their phone’s or device’s compatibility. For example iPhone and Sony readers all use ePub file format but the Kindle uses the azw file format.
Ask the company if they can provide you with the formatting that the images in the book will adjust them according to the screen on which they are being read – that is fixed layout conversion.
Are they offering you Digital Rights Management? There are some techniques that don’t allow the user circumvention and can potentially block the user from doing certain things with his or her eBook.
Ask them for Kindle Conversion Services because it is the product of Amazon and is gaining popularity at a greater rate. Some authors do not want their books for the other reading devices but they want it for Kindle only as Kindle will remain on the top for long.
The little English-language bookstore was a treasure-trove of ideas and excitement. We were an American family living in Mexico City for a few years, learning a new culture and exploring our neighborhood. My young kids were just beginning to love books and the Kindle had yet to be invented.
The store was called Libros, Libros, Libros and conveniently located next to a Santa Clara ice cream shop with the best coffee ice cream I’d ever had. We idled away a lot of Sunday afternoon there, buying Junie B. Jones for my daughter and Star Wars books for my son. W.E.B. Griffin’s nearly endless military and police fiction series for my husband. Design books so I could figure out how to decorate Mexican style.
The kids are grown and in college now, yet they still talk about our Sunday trips for books and ice cream. But the magic of bookstores is waning, it would seem. Dramatic changes in the publishing industry have impacted the way authors get their books to readers. Traditional book publishing and retail models have been battered by the rise of online retailers. The ebook revolution has given us more books to choose from, but all too often good books are lost in the virtual churn. Continue reading Are Bricks and Mortar Bookstores Going To Survive?→
I thought it would be easy to write a children’s book. I was using my adult mind. After scanning the internet for tips on how to write children’s books, I realized that just sitting down at my computer wasn’t enough.
First I had to determine what age group I was trying to reach. Children’s vocabulary and interest span varies from five to eight years old, nine to twelve years old and thirteen to fifteen years old. I spent an afternoon in the bookstore’s children’s section analyzing what language each stage of children could understand, the type and amount of illustrations included, the length of the books, the topics of interest from one age group to another and how the children in the bookstore section interacted with their choices.
Next I had to determine what genre I wanted to write about – adventure, fantasy, science fiction, personal experience, etc. and what were the requirements for the length of my book. There are parameters for each of these described on-line. I visited fantasy and science fiction book websites to see what topics other authors were writing about. Which books were winning the awards and why?
I also studied the trends in graphics and illustration styles being used for each age group at the various children’s books websites.
Since I was studying to be a teacher I used teachers resources as well to find out the books that were being used in school for different school age students.
Then there is Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Borders websites that were excellent tools for presenting what books were most popular and why in the different age groups. At this point I decided to self publish on-line rather than go the printed route which was too time consuming, expensive and daunting. There is plenty of support for aspiring Kindle authors in the Kindle Book Publishing section of Amazon’s website.
For marketing my eBook I made an investment in on-line services which teach you how to do this using Ezines, blogs, advertising and publishing strategies to bring people to your book to purchase. They also tell you how to price your Ebook, check how many people access your book description and monitor the promotional rankings. You can also design a website to bring traffic to purchase your book.
Depending on where you want to sell your book, you will have to format the book to outlined specifications. Follow these carefully if you want your book to be easily read. I have seen books with weird symbols mixed into the text. There are services that do everything for a price or you can do it yourself. I was able to design a cover to be used with my description on Amazon using a website.
This is just a primer on how to proceed to write, publish and sell a children’s Ebook. I am sure there are many more resources on-line that you can find to give you the information you need. Allow the creativity to flow but always have the end reader you want in mind as you write.
