How to Publish an eBook for the Exploding eReader Marketplace
eVolving your readers’ eXperience with effective eBooks
eBooks are the fastest growing market in the publishing industry.
- In a recession economy, eBooks increased 300% while print book sales declined 1.8% last year
- People who read eBooks read more books than those who read print
- People who buy eBooks buy more books than those who buy print
- 1 in 10 Americans use some sort of eReading device
With the buzz first started by Amazon’s Kindle and now stoked by Apple’s iPad and Barnes & Noble’s nook, eBooks have become a serious contender for consumers of literature. So the question becomes, why do authors resist embracing this technology.
The two main reasons authors don’t capitalize on this rapidly advancing market are
- they don’t know where to start and
- they don’t know how to Think outside the page™
eBook eVolution will show you...
- Why eBooks are the epitome of consumer empowerment
- How eBooks can cross media platforms- audio, video, graphics...
- How eBooks can create an experience, not merely a ‘good read’
- Why eVolved eBooks should be crafted at the beginning of a project and not as an afterthought
- Why eBooks should be aligned with where the publishing industry is going, not where it has been
- How you can format your own eBook and start selling it on major and independent eBook distributors
- How to Think outside the page™
Who should attend?
Published authors, soon-to-be published authors, or budding authors just getting started.
What should I bring with me?
Laptop, copy of your book/manuscript/outline, an open mind, and thoughts & ruminations on your brand as an author.
