How To Publish An Ebook In 5 Days
This manual is essential for first-time authors. When people heard I published a book in five days they wanted to know how I did it. This manual is a "tell-all" of the challenges I faced with traditional book publishing versus self-publishing, and the months of research that drove me to the decision to self-publish my first novel. I hope you find it helpful. Check my website for updates. More
This is a 54-page manual which serves two distinct purposes. First, it's a "tell all" that is essential for first-time authors who need to know how to get their book published, and second, what published authors want to know who are dissatisfied with their past book publishing experience. This manual focuses on fiction books; however, the steps for getting a non-fiction book published are virtually the same, and the differences are noted, where applicable.
Upon completion of this manual, you will have gained insight into the book publishing business - traditional and self-publishing; recognizing the best option for publishing your book, and know how to get it published.
The first part of this manual explains in detail "How To" publish your book by traditional methods, including what documents are required, examples of those documents, how you are paid, and questions to ask before signing a contract. The second part is a "How To" self-publish a print book and ebook, at little or no cost to you, and understanding why ebooks are so popular.
In addition, you will learn the proven easy 3-step process to self-publishing - from manuscript to beautifully published ebook available at online retail sites - in just five days - with no experience necessary. If you are technically challenged, the author provides actual names and email addresses for the experts who assisted her. Furthermore, you will learn "How To" do-it-yourself for free, where to find support from published authors, tips for marketing your book on a budget - what is free and what cost money, and "How To" make your book successful.
Topics covered: Is Your Book Unique?, The Query Letter, The Synopsis, The Proposal, Finding an Agent, The Book Editor, The Publisher's Contract, Indie Self-publishing - Print books and Ebooks, Traditional Publishing vs. Indie Self-Publishing, and Tips For Self-Marketing Your Ebook, just to name a few.
