Do you want to learn all about how to publish your book on the Kindle, iPad, Nook and other distribution platforms?
This multimedia mini-course will teach you all about how you can publish your ebook and avoid pain, hassle and expense along the way.
2012 Update: Please note, I have now expanded this course and included everything you need to know in Secrets of Self-Publishing Success, in conjunction with NY Times bestselling author CJ Lyons.
In the last few months, Kindle ebook sales have overtaken paperback print book sales on Amazon.com. Ebooks are a growing percentage of total book sales and the price of ereaders continues to come down and they may even be free by Christmas 2011.
Some ebook authors are selling hundreds of thousands of books and even those people selling a lot less are getting their work out there faster and to a wider global audience than through traditional publishing.
Whatever your personal feelings about ebooks, you are not your market and your book could be selling to a global audience if you make it available as an ebook and start selling it now.
With the fantastic changes in technology, you can be selling your ebook on the Kindle store, the iPad or the Nook within days. It’s still important to write a great book, have it edited and use a great cover designer but the process for ebook publishing is now available to all.
I now have four ebooks selling on the Kindle and other ebook distribution platforms and recently went through the process for my first novel, Pentecost. I learned a lot along the way and share all that information with you in this multi-media mini-course.
