In this final post in the series I overview how to take a completed ms and transform it into an e-book. Bear in mind that the market is constantly developing, so I’ve focused on options at a broader level rather than going in heavy with detail. To the best of my knowledge the information here is accurate at the time of writing, but I would expect it to change over time!
Thank you for visiting and contributing to a really interesting discussion on the indie publishing world. Next Monday’s post is less preachy, and more just an overview of the process for those interested in self-publishing in future!
Personally I’d love to find some good indie writers, so I’d be really grateful for any recommendations of great indie e-books you’ve read. Please either use the comments below to summarise title, author, genre and brief overview, or for a more detailed review it would be great if you could visit our indie book corner in the forums and also come back to the forums to share future gems.
It’s hard enough these days to decided how to publish. But those that decide to go the self-publishing route now have one more option to look at: KDP Select. According to marketwatch.com, and in their words; “Amazon.com, Inc. announced yesterday that KDP Select, a new option featuring a $6 million annual fund dedicated to independent authors and publishers. Here’s how KDP Select works: if a KDP author or publisher chooses to make any of their books exclusive to the Kindle Store for at least 90 days, those books are eligible to be included in the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library and can earn a share of the $6 million fund.
