The Sea Change of Self-Publishing - Writing for Kindle

I’ve just returned from the Romance Writers of America’s national conference. Change has been the word on our lips for at least a couple of years, but the swell was washing over every aspect of the conference this year."

Do the words "self-publishing" invoke fear in you? Do you think you must go to a large publishing house or you won't be taken seriously? Are you afraid to take the leap?

 

When you read about the buzz going on at the Romance Writers of America's national conference, I believe your fear could turn to downright giddiness. For the first time ever, editors and agents were wooing authors. The self-pub side of the BALLroom was jammed and buzzing with excitement. Romance is hot in the digital market.

 

Here's the rub: not many are making a ton of money with self-publishing--yet. There is still a bit of a steep learning curve to learning all about the finer aspects of formatting, uploading, and then the dreaded self-marketing. Can one person truly do it all?

 

Here are my thoughts on self-publishing: You can get the darn book written, published, and marketed much faster than waiting on somebody else to notice you and your work. You may find success with it, you may not, but you'll never find out unless you take the first step. Fear has kept many a fine writer in the closet. Feel the fear and do it anyway!

"Perhaps more than any other industry the book trade is reliant on sharing product data in order to function efficiently. With the massive variety of products available the ISBN has been central to the industry for generations, and attaching accurate and appropriate information to the ISBN has become essential for identifying products both for trading partners and customers. 

Supplying sufficient and appropriate metadata is actively encouraged within the book industry, but until now the effect of supplying (or not supplying) this metadata has not been measured. Being at the heart of the global book industry, Nielsen has unique access to both bibliographic data supplied by publishers and used by retailers, and sales data supplied to us direct from book retailers. Combining these data sets we can assess the impact that supplying good quality, appropriate metadata has on sales."

Marianela Camacho Alfaro's curator insight, June 21, 2013 11:00 AM

Según esre estudio la diferencia de ventas entre una obra con metadatos incompletos y sin imagen de la obra y otra con metadatos suficientes y con imagen de la misma, esta entre el +268-473% en beneficio de las segundas.

También se afirma que, contrariamente a algunas de las convenciones existentes, los metadatos de calidad no serían un prerrequisito para las obras electrónicas, y si para el comercio físico de libros, en el que la optimización de los metadatos aumenta en un 124% las ventas, mientras que su ausencia tendría un impacto menor sobre las ventas on line. De todos modos el estudio concluye que la inclusión de metadatos de calidad, incrementa en todos los casos las ventas, y que este incremento es proporcional al número de metadatos incluidos.

And, at the opposite end of the scale from binge viewing ... is episodic storytelling.  It's interesting to compare this with the recent release of 'House of Cards' on Netflix.

Flash fiction attention spans get their audiences.  I'm personally hooked on the new WIGS channel on YouTube, where most episodes are between 4 and 8 minutes long.
