From Blog To Book: Hyperink

From Blog To Book: Hyperink | Litteris | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Hyperink is a new publishing service which picks new blog authors and builds great story-books out of their already published content. 


From FastCompany: "If you're a blogger who'd like to add the line "book author" to your resume but are too busy, well, blogging to get that far, e-book publisher Hyperink has a new solution for you.


The e-publisher today launched its "blog to book” service, with the goal of make the publishing process a whole lot easier, accessible, and profitable for bloggers who wouldn’t typically have access to a book deal.


...


Hyperink’s demand-first philosophy flips the way books are selected on its head.


Instead of starting with the writer, which is often the case with traditional publishers, they look at Google search trends, what people are talking about on social platforms, and what areas are selling well on Kindle. Once they analyze the data to identify areas where people want books, they then look for a writer (or blogger in this case) for that particular area.


With their blog to book service, eBooks are created using existing published content which means there’s no new writing on the blogger’s part.


...Hyperink identifies your most popular posts based on comments, views, shares, etc. and then assigns an editor to layout the content with a narrative flow.


...the typical amount of time required is just about 5-10 hours total.


Once the eBook is complete, Hyperink publishes it to its marketplace, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Kobo (iBooks coming soon). They then provide the blogger with copy, widgets, and tools to promote the title via his/her own blog.


Proceeds on books sold are split between both parties, giving bloggers the chance to turn their content into a passive income stream and enabling Hyperink to recoup their costs and generate revenue."

While some publishers have noticed a leveling out on their digital sales, especially following circumstances like the hype over a particular ebook decreasing and causing a resulting minor drop in digital sales, others are still reporting record increases in revenue from digital publishing. According to an article from Journalism.co.uk, Future Publishing has recently seen a thirty percent increase in digital sales, thanks in large part to growth in the various platforms it sends content to.

The Why and How Self-Publishing a Book Is A Great Idea For Any Entrepreneur | Techcrunch

The Why and How Self-Publishing a Book Is A Great Idea For Any Entrepreneur | Techcrunch | Litteris | Scoop.it

James Altucher tackles three issues on Techcrunch: "Why self-publish rather than use a traditional publisher, why entrepreneurs should self-publish, and finally, HOW does one go about self-publishing."


A few highlights from the article: 


"...when I self-publish I make about a 70% royalty instead of a 15% royalty with a traditional publisher. I also own 100% of the foreign rights instead of 50%."


"You won’t make a million dollars on your book (well, maybe you will – never say never) but just being able to say, “I’m a published author” extends your credibility as a writer/speaker/enterpreneur when you go out there now to sell your book, syndicate your blog elsewhere or to get speaking engagements, etc."


"I used createspace because they are owned by Amazon and have excellent customer service. They let you pick the size of your book and then have Microsoft Word templates that you download to format your book within"
