Got a smartphone in your pocket? An eReader in your bag? An iPad on your bedside table, or even simply a computer at work? Then through the wonders of digital publishing you’ve got access to a library of millions upon millions of eBooks to read.
And your book could be among them!
The eReader/digital publishing revolution has made it easier than ever before for budding Tolstoys to get their work in front of the masses, taking control away from picky publishing houses and putting it into the hands of the very people who write the books you read.
Thanks to services like Kindle Direct Publishing from Amazon and iBooks Author from Apple, you can easily get your novel onto digital storefronts worldwide and selling across the globe within a couple of hours. In some cases, you can even take as much as 70% of the eBook selling price as royalties.
It can be hard work, but anyone with perseverance can pull it off, and we’re here to help! Over the next couple of days, Tech Digest will be pulling together how-to guides, interviews and comparison features on many aspects of the self publishing process, helping you gain insight into this exciting, growing world of publishing. We’ll be posting new eBook publishing stories every day this week, and this page will become a landing page for all of them, so keep checking back for more self-publishing posts. Check out the season so far below!
