Ebooks are actually not books—schools among first to realizing this fact | Digital Book World

Ebooks are actually not books—schools among first to realizing this fact | Digital Book World | eBook Publishing | Scoop.it
Schools are realizing that ebooks are not books at all—they are software and they should be sold the way software is sold.

Via Carisa Kluver, MioBook.
Brian S's insight:

Are ebooks actually more like a website than a printed book? I think they probably are.

The Challenges of Self-Publishing - And Why I'd Do It Again - Women Writers, Women Books

The Challenges of Self-Publishing - And Why I'd Do It Again - Women Writers, Women Books | eBook Publishing | Scoop.it
With a publisher, fame and fortune would certainly follow.  Right? The idea for Found It: A Field Guide for Mom Entrepreneurs came to me in the night.  Literally.  At 2 AM, I raced to a lined yellow pad and each of the 51 chapters fell out of my head and onto the paper.  Just like …

Judith van Praag's curator insight, April 5, 7:58 AM

The Challenges of Self Publishing and why I wouldn't really want to do it again. That would have been my line. Creating the book (Creative Acts of Healing: after a baby dies) was gratifying, marketing in 1999 not that much fun, no Author platform, not Social Media, no nothing. Distribution a bitch. No really. 
So perhaps in the future I may look into this again, given the improved situation for self publishers, the good distribution system that's already established. Perhaps. But not yet.
