Self-Publishing Ebooks In The Flourishing Digital Book Market
Today’s self-publishing market has been transformed by new distribution tools that are free to use, take a smaller percentage of authors’ sales, and operate on a nonexclusive basis. Authors have far more control over where their work is sold and what they earn. And there is a growing field of bestselling authors who’ve launched their careers by publishing ebooks alone—such as Hugh Howey and Jennifer L. Armentrout, the latest self-publishing success stories.
This webcast will cover what technical skills are required, how much investment you should expect to make, and the principles behind the successful creation and distribution of an ebook.
The webcast will also provide insight into established e-publishing tools and skills as well as a look at services and trends you should be aware of given their current prominence in the market (e.g., KDP Select).
