How I Published My First Ebook: Tips for New Writers - Writing for Kindle

How I Published My First Ebook: Tips for New Writers - Writing for Kindle | Writing for Kindle | Scoop.it

"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? "

Penelope's insight:

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

 

The article is well written, the author speaking from experience. Her book is currently free for download from Story Cartel. You can download your free copy and enter for a Kindle until Friday, February 21, 2014) http://storycartel.com/books/743/the-beginners-guide-to-writing-quality-online-content/

11 Visual Exercises - Turn Book Dreams into a Published Book! - PHILOSBOOKS | Writing for Kindle | Scoop.it

"Some easy tips to help you turn your book dreams into published book reality."

Penelope's insight:

 

I speak to many aspiring authors who are just downright afraid to write and publish. They feel that they have nothing worthwhile to share with the world.

 

If you have the God-given desire to write--then you must at least try! Don't live a woulda, coulda, shoulda life.

 

This article shares some tips to help those people stop dreaming and start writing and publishing. The steps are simple, but it may just be what turns "aspiring" into "publishing."

Will NaNoWriMo Help You Publish A Novel? Why This Self-Published Author Thinks It Will

Will NaNoWriMo Help You Publish A Novel? Why This Self-Published Author Thinks It Will | Writing for Kindle | Scoop.it

Fantasty writer Chele Cooke makes a great case for aspiring self-published authors to use NaNoWriMo as a stepping-stone to publishing a novel - as she did for her  debut novel, Dead and Buryd."

Penelope's insight:

 

Do you need a kick in the pants to get your novel written and published? This author thinks NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) may be just the kick you need.

 

You have one month to write and finish a 50K word novel. I'm signed up with the NaNo website, but just use it as a personal kickstarter to get one novel finished and restart a stalled one.

 

If you need a fire under your britches, sign up and see where it leads you. You may just get your novel published in time for Christmas!
