Article on Self-Publishing an E-Book


Folks, good article on e-publishing. Read it or don't, but realize e-publishing is already changing the way we publish our books.

I have said it before, and I'll say it again: This will give rise to the mini-series, the novella, short stories, and quick reads. Printed books won't disappear -- in fact, I think they'll become even more elite -- but the e-writers will be an independent niche group propped up by a community of self-reviewing e-writers who polish their work against each other's grindstones.

Much like bloggers.

You could be on to something. I have a review up today of an indie author's book. I plan to do some more as I read more.

Damn you Eric! Could you not simply paste the article here and pass it off as your own?

I see nothing wrong with that.

Dude, I'm so contemplating this route - once I buy an e-reader of some sort. I know several bloggers that are happily e-published several times over.

The new world order, you know?

It's certainly an interesting time to be trying to break into the business. A couple of years ago I would not have even considered self-publishing to be an option, except as a last resort. Now... I don't know.

Great article! As someone who will be self-publishing soon, I was excited to read this. :)
