Great post. Short read. Goodreads, that is.

 

Now owned by Amazon, authors should definitely create their profile, then utilize tools that Goodreads provides--for free.

 

One tip that surprised me? Goodreads reviews get syndicated (distributed) to USAToday.com, PLUS e-commerce and library sites! Get those reviews folks! There are two more very hot tips waiting for you.

What is the Best Methodology for eBook Production? | Good E-Reader - eBooks, Publishing News | Publishing | Scoop.it

Publishers are at a crossroads when it comes to digitizing their books and marketing them through various sales channels. There is no shortage of companies out there begging for business and passing themselves off as a one stop shop for eBook creation services.   What are the current best practices for developing an eBook creation pipeline? Is it better to develop your own technologies and create everything in-house, or to outsource it to a third party?

David Van Leeuwen's insight:

If you think publishing in multiple channels is difficult in English try managing a number of titles in multiple languages with the vagueries of iTunes and Amazon and their chaos of served countries.

Prof. Robert G. Picard: Rethinking e-publishing | The Frankfurt Book Fair Blog

David Van Leeuwen's insight:

The LDS Gospel Library app is wonderful but lacks social sharing and collaboration tools integrated with LDS Account. Perhaps Yammer could be leveraged to help with this? ePubs are disjointed with only hypertext links to connect them with other content.

"Publishers have made great strides integrating e-publishing into their operations and the digital market provides significant revenue streams for many types of publishers today. However, now that tablets and smartphones have augmented e-readers, publishers need to realistically reassess what is happening in the digital marketplace and the strategies they have in place."
