DIY Guide: How to publish your own ebook
by Peter Simmons - ISBN 0 9522532 2 4
New writers usually find it hard getting their first book published, unlike other creatives who can freely make and sell their work on the open market.
Written by Peter Simmons, a publishing professional with 25 years' experience, in accessible, easy to understand language, this book is all you need to become a self publisher. Don't spend money with 'vanity publishers' or others offering to publish your book, cut out the middle-men, buy our book for just £5 for instant download and do it yourself! Stuffed with lots of self publishing advice, it shows you how to self publish and market your book.
Every aspect is covered, from dealing with the manuscript, producing a typeset book, outputting to ebook format and even how to prepare it for print. With 25 years in professional publishing and thousands of books published, we have the expertise needed to do it all, and it's all in this book, including: how to prepare a manuscript, how to edit, proofread, and lay out a book, plus how to turn it into an ebook using free software. There are also hundreds of links to free website templates, cheap hosting and directions on how to set your own site up in hours and be online in days. Every stage is carefully laid out, follow it and you will be a self publisher within weeks.
By self publishing, as well as selling your book, you stand a better chance of being noticed, which could eventually lead to your work ending up in print, with a major publishing house footing the print bill. Even if that doesn't happen, you could still see steady sales from your own website as well as through Amazon and Google Books, and you can even sell printed copies from digital print on demand - POD - in effect, running your own publishing house with orders covering your print costs.
This is all within the scope of practically anyone. If you can write a book, you can learn to self publish. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. What this book tells you is how to do every stage of the production process, everything you need to know in order to publish yourself.Our ebook is a complete DIY guide; no nonsense, no endless repetitions, no impractical promises, no 'worth much more' claims although it certainly is. It takes you through the whole process in straightforward language accessible to all, and with no attempt to get you to sign up, buy something else, click on another site controlled by us or anything other than how to typeset, design, lay out, edit, proofread, illustrate, promote and publish a book, and even make a website from free templates so you can sell your book online if you wish, and then how to craft your search terms [meta tags] to make your site turn up in searches and make money while you do nothing.
With it, you can do the whole job yourself, with no extra expense and no interminable sales pitches to read through, or associate programs to join. You don't need to sign up to anything, you won't be constantly encouraged to spend more with ever more exciting schemes and 'offers', we simply have a book to sell and that's it. Buy it, and you're on the way to becoming a publisher.
All the 400+ links in the book are the result of extensive research, and are chosen for their usefulness. They have no connection with us, and most are for free tools, services, advice and information. We don't get commissions from sending you to the links, they are included as a service to help you so you don't have to spend days searching the net for the right information. With the detailed professional advice in this ebook, you can publish and market your book at virtually no cost to you except in time. No longer do you have to print out several copies of your manuscript and submit them to lists of publishers, and then await rejection letters. No longer do you have to pay someone and then trust them to get it right and not rip you off. Now for the very reasonable price of just £5, this ebook provides you with all the knowledge and help to do it yourself. Click on the PayPal button for immediate ordering and you will receive your copy the same day [allowing for time differences]. This will usually be within minutes of placing your order.
You are just a click away from starting on the road to becoming a publisher! The advantage of doing it yourself is that you are totally in control, and can choose exactly how you want your book to look. You also keep 100% of the sales rather than 10%, 20% or, if you're lucky, 30% from a publisher. There is also a distinct advantage in having control over the complete process of production, and you don't have to wait for someone else to pay you your percentage, you get your payment as soon as the book sells, and that can be over and over again. There are also links to the best publishing information sites in our book, giving you access to yet more information, in case there's something we haven't covered fully.
