Bypassing the Traditional Roadblocks and Getting Your eBook Published Quickly and Easily

There are a lot of people who get involved with the e-book publishing business every year. The reason they get involved with this business is because it allows them to overcome many of the traditional challenges that are faced by people who try to get their manuscripts published through conventional channels. It away, the e-book publishing business is something of a hybrid. In many ways it is a lot like the traditional publishing business. However, you are in control of the process. This is both a blessing and a curse. The overwhelming majority of people who consider themselves to be authors typically lack the entrepreneurial and business acumen necessary to successfully self publish their own manuscript as an e-book you.

That’s why I highly recommend that if you are interested in getting involved with e-books self-publishing that you obtain a training course that teaches you everything you need to know about the process. I’m sure were you get a training course from — there are quite a few of them out there. What I would suggest, however, is that you carefully inspect any training course before purchasing it. Make sure that the individual or company offering a training course knows what they are talking about.

Once you understand the power of e-book publishing, you will soon understand why so many aspiring authors are gravitating away from traditional publishing channels and striking out on their own with their own independent e-book titles. It goes without saying that you can make a lot of money when you are primarily in control of the publishing process. Trust me, the advantages of getting involved with the e-book publishing business from the perspective of an author/entrepreneur are enormous.

Write and Sell Ebooks Online: 6 Reasons It’s Easier Than Ever to Self-Publish and Make a Profit

I write and sell ebooks online for a living. I published my first ebook in 2004. To date, I’ve written and self-published 18 titles. Anyone who wants to can do this. Why? Because what I call the “eSelf-Publishing” world has evolved a lot since 2004.

One of the biggest changes has been the explosion of e-readers (eg, the Kindle, iPad and Nook). These little devices have made reading on electronic devices more popular than ever. And this is just the beginning. For those who are ambitious and hardworking enough, starting an online business writing and selling ebooks can be one of the most lucrative enterprises of the 21st century. The following 6 reasons detail why.

6 Reasons to Write and Sell Ebooks Online

The following changes highlight why there are more reasons than ever to write ebooks and self-publish them if it’s something you’ve been wanting to do.

I. EPubs Outselling Hardcovers: In July 2010, online bookseller Amazon reported sales of ebooks for its proprietary Kindle outnumbered sales of hardcover books for the first time ever during the second quarter of 2010, saying it sold 140 e-books for every 100 hardcover books, including hardcovers for which there was no digital edition. [Source: Wikipedia]

II. Bestseller List: In an acknowledgment of the growing sales and influence of digital publishing, The New York Times said on Wednesday that it would publish e-book best-seller lists in fiction and nonfiction beginning early next year. [Source: Times Will Rank E-Book Best Sellers, The New York Times, 11/10/2010]

III. Sales Explosion: U.S. consumers are projected to spend $1 billion in e-books this year, according to a recent report from Forrester, who also expects that sales will surpass $3 billion by 2015. [Source: “The New York Times” to Launch Bestseller Lists for E-Books, Mashable website]

IV. Free to Publish: When I first looked into publishing my titles on Amazon in 2007, you had to have an ISBN number. They cost was somewhere around $150. I put it off ostensibly to “get to” later. And of course, I never did.

Now, you don’t need an ISBN number to publish, write and sell ebooks ebook on Amazon. It’s 100% free. All you have to do is upload your file.

V. Forget Traditional Publishers: In traditional publishing, author’s get around 17% of a book’s cover price – yes 17%. Usually, publishes get over half, and the distributors get another 25-30%. So, it leaves you, the writer/author, with very little profits.

But with ebook publishing, you don’t have to wait to be signed and published by a big name publisher. You can actually sell fewer ebooks and do quite well for yourself because you keep all the money.

VI. Make More Money: This year [2010], more than 50% of my income came from ebook sales (I’m a freelance writer). The more I write and publish, the more money I make. With 32 new titles planned for next year, and writing with this in mind, I only expect this to increase.

What I hope you’re beginning to understand is that if you want to write and sell ebooks online for a living, now has never been a better time to take the plunge.

May be reprinted with the following, in full: Yuwanda Black is a prolific ebook writer and publisher.

Self Publishers Take Charge and Chart Your Own Course!

Are you are ready to take charge of your writing career? It is your time. The world has opened to you. Technology has changed. There has never been a better time for self publishers.

The avenues that are open to you as a writer now are new, innovative, and exciting. You don’t need a “Traditional Publisher”.

I know exactly what you are going through as a self published paperback author. I walked in your moccasins for many, many, miles. I know every inch of the road.

Here’s what I know about you:

You are passionate about writing.
You put thousands of hours into your manuscript.
You wrote it and rewrote it countless times.
Your editor tells you, you are good to go and you have a winner.
You sought out publishers and agents and followed their submission guidelines to a tee.
You waited and waited in eager anticipation for their decision.

Two years later, here’s what else I know about you after you’ve been rejected by publishers and agents:

You decided to self publish.
You paid thousands of dollars on printing costs and buying your books.
Your book is now available on and 20,000 bookstores worldwide.
You’ve given the first signed copies to family, friends and the kid next door.
You are ready to make it big.
You nip in and out of blogs and forums and pick up ideas on selling your books.
You signed up for weekly newsletters, webinars and sound advice.
You attend some of the book fairs and festivals to show case your book.
You built your website
You signed up on Harper Collins, with thousands of other hopeful writers.
You did book signings and left your books on consignment in Indie Book Stores.

Now you have pennies in your pocket and nothing in the bank!

Even published authors find themselves in that situation. Their publisher is not out their marketing their book, they are! Authors spend so much time marketing their book and working on their next novel, they can’t focus on the other side of their masterpiece – Turning it into a business!

Unless they come up with a few good best sellers, their book reaches its peak and then declines after 5 to 7 years. The Publisher is not going to keep it on the shelves. Their book becomes an out of print and special order. The Publisher has the next generation of eager unsuspecting authors knocking on their door.

And so it goes. The publisher moves on and stays in business throughout the entire process with, ‘Established since 1938,’ over the door. The author after surrendering all rights to the publisher for 10% of sales, has a bundle of unsold books and, “I once had a best seller,” rolling off his tongue. So now it’s back to obscurity and his day job.

The reality is, unless we as writers chart our own course and focus on an extremely profitable writing career, the above paragraph will ring true for us.

Do you know that you have a unique purpose in life that involves helping others? It is my belief, that you are capable of writing an extraordinary information e-book that will capture the market with that purpose.

If we wait on “Traditional Publishers” to meet the high demand for information books, this era will have passed us all by. Turn your passion for writing and your purpose in life into a lucrative Internet Marketing Business with your self-published e-books!

Learn proven success strategies for self publishing & marketing e-books in today’s fast growing world of e-businesses.

A Guide to Self Publishing

Self publishing involves the act of an author publishing books or magazines at his or her own expense. If the author self publishes, the author has control over content, editing, printing, marketing and distribution. In traditional publishing, the publisher invests money prior to publishing for marketing, printing, binding and promotion of the publication. Because the publisher wants to recover the cost of the initial investment, the publisher researches to make an educated guess about whether the author and the book will earn enough money to recoup the initial investment after its release. The publisher will only select the author’s writings if a profit can be earned.

The author will assume all financial responsibility of the project from marketing to distribution and storage. The writer will receive all of the profit from the sales and maintain all rights to the publication. In this case, the author typically will not accept pre-prepared packages, but will submit a bid for each aspect of the publishing process. In some cases, because the author has full autonomy and receives all proceeds, the author can yield a much higher quality product.

Vanity publishers will publish the work of an author without regard to the quality of work or its potential to be marketable. The vanity publisher is only responsible for printing and binding the publication. Since, the responsibility lies solely with the author, vanity publishing is often more expensive than traditional publishing, but offers more autonomy. Vanity Publishers make their money from the fees charged to the author, rather than on sales from the publication. Therefore, it is the author’s responsibility to market and advertise to gain exposure.

Print on Demand allows authors who have a desire to self-publish to do so for a small fee and in some cases, for free. Print on demand companies typically offer to print and ship a book only when the book is purchased. Their services can also include collecting royalties, listing in online bookstores and in some instances, formatting, proof reading and editing. Because the process is digital, the initial investment required by the author is generally less than vanity publishing.

Print on Demand companies such as Lulu, xLibris, and Trafford Publishing all require a small initial investment for each of their packages. Companies such as, Amazon’s Booksurge and CreateSpace offer self publishing services for free. When publishing a work with these companies, the responsibility of getting a work to submission ready status generally lies with the author. These companies allow the author to design book covers, as well as, choose whether the publication will be an eBook, hardback or paper back.

These low cost services give amateurs, as well as, seasoned authors independence from publisher demands, editorial control and more profits or royalties than with traditional publishing.

With subsidy publishing, the author pays for the printing and binding of the book, but the publisher will contribute a certain amount to the author to cover expenses such as editing, distribution, marketing and storage. Because of the publisher’s contribution, the publisher possesses, owns the book and also has a portion of the rights, while the author only receives royalties on the copies that are sold. In this scenario, the author will possess little or no autonomy in certain production decisions.
