"Publishing an eBook is a long, rigorous process despite how easy it looks from the outside. I mean, self-publishing is supposed to be super simple, right? "
This article is a wonderful self-publishing primer for those who want to learn more about the process. Alicia Rades has taken us by the hand and walked us through her 16-step process of publishing her first ebook.
I have six published books currently up on Amazon, but I still picked up some new and innovative ideas. Here are some of my favorites:
o Check out MYECOVERMAKER for awesome 3D cover
o Find an EDITOR (to polish product)
o Buy Your Own ISBNs (to use your own self-publishing co)
o Sell the PDF on your website - Go to the article for the URL
Amazon is the #1 book seller in the world, and for good reason. They make it incredibly easy (Kindles) to provide the masses what they are looking for. What is that? Inspiring and thought-provoking stories. (ebooks)
Everyone has a story in them. Don't think so? Think back over your life. There's a story. Did you leave home and attend college? There's a bunch of stories. Have you worked? There's a story. Been married? Had children? There's another story. It doesn't feel interesting enough to you? Spice it up and sell it as fiction.
Find your story, Write your story. Use the inspiration of your story to inspire others. Publish your story as a Kindle book. You can do it.
