Robin Good's curator insight, February 23, 2013 7:46 AM



Brian Klerns offers some good tidbits of information for anyone considering to publish an ebook by providing a good overview of the key things that he needs to know.


From the basic tools, file formats and down to the alternative distribution options available to you, the article offers a good summary of what you need to know and where to find it.


Of particular view, especially for those more interested in keeping up with this field, is Mr Klerns short selection of online ebook publishing resources he suggests to follow. These are:


→ Digital Book World (digitalbookworld.com): This site (by F+W Media, parent company of WD) offers news, analysis and interviews about e-book publishing. Start by reading the series of articles about maximizing sales through the Amazon Kindle by Carolyn McCray.


→ The Book Designer (thebookdesigner.com): Joel Friedlander offers practical advice and information on self-publishing digitally or in print.


→ Kindle Direct Publishing forums (forums.kindledirectpublishing.com): While most digital publishing services offer their own forums, the Kindle forums host some of the most active and comprehensive discussions. Whatever your question is, you can probably find it answered here.



Useful for beginners. Informative. 7/10
