 "Extra money if you are going to self-publish" 2009-07-27
By Kevin Sivils - KCS Basketball Enterprises (Katy, TX)
I doubt I personally will ever purchase an e-book. I simply like the tactile aspect of holding a book, marking it up, dog earing it, and making it my own. As a self-published author, I would never have considered publishing anything as an e-book, e-whatever. Until I read Steve Weber's book ePublish.

To be honest, the only reason I obtained a copy was I had read his other books about the publishing field and learned so much from them that I decided to obtain this as well. It is short, informative, easy to read, and contains websites for just about every service an author will need in order to sell books in an e-format. Even if you plan to publish a traditional paper book, this is a great source of information including where to obtain freelance cover designers or copy editors. There is even a chapter on how to convert an e-book into a print-on-demand paper edition.

I now plan to make several of my books available as e-books - not because I ever want to read them in that version, but because it may hep the bottom line of my little business and it won't take that much more work for me to provide my books for sale in that format. This little book provides you with the information you will need to take the first step in the process of becoming an e-publisher!

 "Getting your content published isn't as hard as you might think..." 2009-07-25
By Thomas Duff (Portland, OR United States)
There's a good chance that if you want to write and publish a book, you'll struggle to find a publisher who can and will take you on. It's even worse if you're a first time author, or if your subject matter is rather narrow. Steve Weber shows how you can explore alternatives in his book ePublish: Self-Publish Fast and Profitably for Kindle, iPhone, CreateSpace and Print on Demand. What you quickly learn is that you *can* be published with little money at risk, and the margins at which you can make worthwhile money are not as high as you might think.

Table of Contents:

Introduction; Dive Into Electronic Text; Publish To The Kindle Store; Target The Mobile Reader; Give It Away And Prosper; Ready, Aim, Format!; Weave Your Web; Wag The Long Tail; Rise Above The Noise; Graduate To Print; Write Off Your Expenses; More Resources; Index

The rise of electronic publishing makes the barrier to entry much lower than in the past. Weber explains how devices like the Kindle and the iPhone can be leveraged to prepare and publish your book electronically, and how formatting and pricing comes into play. There are pros and cons of each different platform, and a single formatting option will not cover them all. You'll learn what choices you'll need to make, and how they might affect your eventual monetary return on your time and effort. I also like how he covers something often left out... publicity. If you go the self-publishing route, you'll be responsible for all your own press. Using web sites, reviewers, affiliate sites, and the like can overcome that "lost in a crowd effect", and there's plenty of ideas in here. And for the "dead tree" crowd (of which I am a member), he covers the requirements to go down the Print On Demand route. This is perfect for many authors in that they don't have to pre-order a ton of copies. The books are printed when ordered, so your cash outlay and risk is minimal, and the margin of profit on each sale is much higher. Add into all this content his advice on how best to protect your rights and tax implications, and you have a very valuable book well worth its cost (which isn't much).

As with many books like this (how to make money doing ), the success stories used are such that you may feel you have only to write a couple hundred pages and money will start rolling in. Not true... If your writing is garbage and the material is not well-edited, it doesn't matter how much you publish... it won't sell. But assuming you *do* have good content worth reading and buying, ePublish will help you make that transition from idea to reality. I am already starting to think of a few ideas for this option...

 "Full of Great Resources" 2009-07-13
By Kim (California)
I always learn a lot from Steve Weber's books and this one is no exception. This book takes you through the whole process of formatting the book to send electronically to marketing and connecting with other writers and readers online. There are plenty of online resources given on everything from formatting to promotion. And as always Mr. Weber presents the information in a clear and concise manner.

The author also includes tips for writers wishing to print books as well. Writers will learn how to get an ISBN no. for their printed books which is a necessity in order to have retailers and libraries locate printed books to purchase. Some other great resources included are: sites where writers can go to get feedback before they are published and for book lovers sites to connect with other readers by listing one's personal book collection. Any author considering ebooks should definitely add EPublish to their reference list.
