Take a look at a few simple hints and tips to guide you along the way.

How to price an ebook appropriately

Have you really put yourself out there? I mean really…

After you’re published now it’s time to market that book!  Whether it be ebooks or print make sure you are on all of these websites:

Book Buzzr
Filed By
Jacket Flap
Nothing Binding
On Book Talk

And, of course make sure you are on all of the major bookstore’s websites as well as ireaders.  Check out bookbaby.com or smashwords.com.

I’m finished faffing around trying to do it myself!

So, I’ve downloaded Calibre.  I’ve uploaded the files wrong because what no one tells you is that they need to be in .pdf format.  Not .jpg or any other file of the sort.  PDF works best.  And, because I have children something that would take a ‘normal’ person to work out takes me 3x longer due to lack of concentration and lack of time allowed on the computer.  (Thank goodness WordPress has the schedule post button because I could write a few posts and then they automatically go out on the date set- even though I love my computer being glued to it is not my idea of a Friday Funday).

At any rate, my next mission is to turn our book, Bud & Roo’s Spectacular Adventures-The Beach, into an ePub file.  Watch this space! If you want to produce an ebook that most ereaders can ‘read’ then put the file in an ePub format.  Calibre can do it for you.  Then, make sure you check it (bookbaby.com will prompt you to check it).  In the mean time, I have registered with Bookbaby.com.  They are going to do the rest of the stuff for me.  (https://www.bookbaby.com/) We are going to sell our book worldwide and keep 100% of the royalties.  Bookbaby.com offers printing, design help, and more.  Bookbaby.com boasts:

“BookBaby helps sell your eBooks worldwide.”

“BookBaby delivers your books to Amazon, iBookstore, Barnes & Noble and many more. Plus we’re adding new eBook stores almost every month. Your eBook can be read on every reading device — Kindle, iPad, Nook, Sony Reader, and more.”

Why would you spend countless evenings trying to do this all of yourself when you can pay someone $99 to do it for you?  Trust me, it just makes sense.
