With our publishing package we publish your ebook in many places to give you more chances to sell your book. Let’s say your goal is to sell 100 books a month. Instead of putting all your books in one basket and trying to sell 100 books a month on Amazon’s Kindle store, steroids if you have 10 different distributors, information pills you only have to sell 10 ebooks in each place.

We currently upload your book directly to Amazon, visit web Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Through Smashwords, your book is then distributed to Apple, Borders, Diesel, Kobo, ScrollMotion, and Sony. This appears as if your book is on 9 different places, but that’s not the whole picture. Amazon has three distinct Kindle stores in the US, the UK, and in Germany. Barnes & Noble is currently limited to the US. Apple has their iBookstore available in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, China, Australia, and New Zealand. Kobo has stores for the US, Canada, UK, Mexico, European Union, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and several others (we’ll count those as one). ScrollMotion turns your book into an iPhone/iPad app. Now our count for available distributors is up to 25. That means you only have to sell 4 books a month in each store to make your 100 a month quota.

We could add Google Ebooks to this list, but a month ago we discovered a client’s book was available to download in its entirety, despite correctly setting it up to allow only a sample. Google claimed we were wrong, but we had other people test it for us and yes, they were able to download the entire book. I cancelled my account with Google Ebooks and will wait until they have this serious bug fixed.

When you purchase our publishing package, we need the following information to complete the work:

login information for each of the three main distributors: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords
short description (under 400 characters, spaces count)
long description (under 4,000 characters, spaced count)
short author bio
at least 5 keywords or phrases
genres you’d like your book listed under
price for your book

Each of the main distributors require that you confirm your account via email. Simply set up your account, confirm the email, and record your login name and password. You might also want to start the publishing process by entering the name of your book, if only to choose the genres since those vary by distributor. You can also wait until we start the book for you.

When you write your descriptions, think like a copywriter. You want to grab the attention of the potential reader, instill interest and then desire, and then finally a call to action.

Your author bio should make you look human, friendly, approachable, et cetera. Be sure to include your website, Twitter handle, and email address.

Your keywords or phrases are for search purposes. Be sure to include words or phrases that people might use to search for your book and especially words or phrases that are not included in your title or description.

The genres available for listing your book are different for each of the main distributors. Amazon and Smashwords allow two different genres and Barnes & Noble allows up to five. To choose the genres, log in to each account and look at the available list. We’ll help you find this information for your book.

Last, be sure to have a price you want to start your book at. It’s easy to change the price, so don’t worry that you’re locking yourself in. For novels, a good starting price is between $2.99 and $4.99. The lower the price, the more books you’ll sell. The price needs to end in .99

I’ll talk more about this in a future article, but for now I want to at least mention it. It’s important to have reviews for your book as this is a form of social proof and having them helps you sell more books. For each distributor, you should find and use the direct link for leaving a review for your book. Include those links in the back of your book to make it that much easier for people to leave a review. Also, don’t just tell people to leave a review, connect with them emotionally and let them know why it’s important to you.

1. Why should I pay to have my book converted when Amazon allows you to upload PDFs, pilule Word docs, case and even plain text?
The proof is in the results. If you view an ebook that was uploaded as a PDF (or any file that is not in the Kindle format—mobi or prc), you’ll see a mess. Even Amazon warns against this. Their exact wording is, “We’ve had publishers report numerous formatting and conversion issues when uploading PDF files, such as irregularly bolded text, irregular page breaks, inconsistent font sizes, inconsistent text flow, and missing or oversized images. For this reason, we recommend converting your PDF to DOC format and following our Simplified Guide to Building a Kindle Book.”

Their guide recommends the same process I use at The Ebook Editor: convert a correctly-styled Word doc to an HTML file that is then optimized for the Kindle format, and then use Mobipocket Creator to create the Kindle ebook file.

2. Do you personally test on actual ereader devices?
Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac do not accurately display what your Kindle ebook will look like. For EPUBs, Adobe Digital Editions will read the file, but it does a horrible job of displaying the EPUB accurately. Nothing can compare to viewing your ebook on an actual ereader. I check your Kindle books on an actual Kindle and EPUBs are viewed on an iPad and a Nook. Many times I’ve found errors that only showed up on the actual ereader devices and then I was able to correct them for my clients.

3. Do you provide additional services that help me distribute my ebook?
Most ebook conversion companies only provide ebook conversions. You’re left to figure out on your own how to actually upload your book to all the various sites. Our inexpensive publishing package (only $49) distributes your book to over 25 stores and you can find out all the details by reading this article.

With my expert ebook conversion tools and services, you can be sure you’re receiving the best possible ebook, one that is painstakingly and respectfully hand-crafted to look it’s absolute best. Find out more by going to The Ebook Editor.

One of my main ebook conversion services is to convert for Kindle. My format for Kindle service is done manually and my hands-on service ensures your Kindle formatted book looks professional. I’ve purchased many Kindle books that were a disappointment. They had obviously been formatted quickly using an automated conversion process and the result made the author and publishing company look unprofessional. Some of these formatting errors included chapter headings that were so large they covered several lines, oncologist text that was indented unevenly and was often cut off at the bottom of a page, viagra dosage images that were not properly formatted, cardiologist and links that did not work.

At The Ebook Editor, I manually convert every book for the Kindle format. After meticulously preparing your Word document, I convert it to HTML and then spend hours cleaning and optimizing the code. This is the only way to ensure a quality Kindle conversion. The HTML code is then converted to Kindle format and the Kindle ebook is tested on an actual Kindle ereader. If your Kindle ebook is not absolutely perfect, I go back and adjust the code and continue this process until your Kindle ebook looks as professional and perfect.

Amazon allows a number of formats to be uploaded directly to the Kindle store, including Word and PDF, but it also recommends against doing this. My conversion for Kindle process follows Amazon’s recommended guidelines. It also follows the process outlined by Joshua Tallent of eBook Architects in his book, Kindle Formatting.

One last note on file formats. At times you may see Kindle books with the extensions .PRC, .MOBI, and .AZW. All of these are the same file type. The .PRC and .MOBI file extensions are a holdover from the days before Amazon bought Mobipocket in 2005. All of these files can be read equally well on any Kindle. In fact, the process to convert a .PRC or .MOBI file to a .AZW file is as simple as changing the extension. They are all the same file.

With our publishing package we publish your ebook in many places to give you more chances to sell your book. Let’s say your goal is to sell 100 books a month. Instead of putting all your books in one basket and trying to sell 100 books a month on Amazon’s Kindle store, steroids if you have 10 different distributors, information pills you only have to sell 10 ebooks in each place.

We currently upload your book directly to Amazon, visit web Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Through Smashwords, your book is then distributed to Apple, Borders, Diesel, Kobo, ScrollMotion, and Sony. This appears as if your book is on 9 different places, but that’s not the whole picture. Amazon has three distinct Kindle stores in the US, the UK, and in Germany. Barnes & Noble is currently limited to the US. Apple has their iBookstore available in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, China, Australia, and New Zealand. Kobo has stores for the US, Canada, UK, Mexico, European Union, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and several others (we’ll count those as one). ScrollMotion turns your book into an iPhone/iPad app. Now our count for available distributors is up to 25. That means you only have to sell 4 books a month in each store to make your 100 a month quota.

We could add Google Ebooks to this list, but a month ago we discovered a client’s book was available to download in its entirety, despite correctly setting it up to allow only a sample. Google claimed we were wrong, but we had other people test it for us and yes, they were able to download the entire book. I cancelled my account with Google Ebooks and will wait until they have this serious bug fixed.

When you purchase our publishing package, we need the following information to complete the work:

login information for each of the three main distributors: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords
short description (under 400 characters, spaces count)
long description (under 4,000 characters, spaced count)
short author bio
at least 5 keywords or phrases
genres you’d like your book listed under
price for your book

Each of the main distributors require that you confirm your account via email. Simply set up your account, confirm the email, and record your login name and password. You might also want to start the publishing process by entering the name of your book, if only to choose the genres since those vary by distributor. You can also wait until we start the book for you.

When you write your descriptions, think like a copywriter. You want to grab the attention of the potential reader, instill interest and then desire, and then finally a call to action.

Your author bio should make you look human, friendly, approachable, et cetera. Be sure to include your website, Twitter handle, and email address.

Your keywords or phrases are for search purposes. Be sure to include words or phrases that people might use to search for your book and especially words or phrases that are not included in your title or description.

The genres available for listing your book are different for each of the main distributors. Amazon and Smashwords allow two different genres and Barnes & Noble allows up to five. To choose the genres, log in to each account and look at the available list. We’ll help you find this information for your book.

Last, be sure to have a price you want to start your book at. It’s easy to change the price, so don’t worry that you’re locking yourself in. For novels, a good starting price is between $2.99 and $4.99. The lower the price, the more books you’ll sell. The price needs to end in .99

I’ll talk more about this in a future article, but for now I want to at least mention it. It’s important to have reviews for your book as this is a form of social proof and having them helps you sell more books. For each distributor, you should find and use the direct link for leaving a review for your book. Include those links in the back of your book to make it that much easier for people to leave a review. Also, don’t just tell people to leave a review, connect with them emotionally and let them know why it’s important to you.

1. Why should I pay to have my book converted when Amazon allows you to upload PDFs, pilule Word docs, case and even plain text?
The proof is in the results. If you view an ebook that was uploaded as a PDF (or any file that is not in the Kindle format—mobi or prc), you’ll see a mess. Even Amazon warns against this. Their exact wording is, “We’ve had publishers report numerous formatting and conversion issues when uploading PDF files, such as irregularly bolded text, irregular page breaks, inconsistent font sizes, inconsistent text flow, and missing or oversized images. For this reason, we recommend converting your PDF to DOC format and following our Simplified Guide to Building a Kindle Book.”

Their guide recommends the same process I use at The Ebook Editor: convert a correctly-styled Word doc to an HTML file that is then optimized for the Kindle format, and then use Mobipocket Creator to create the Kindle ebook file.

2. Do you personally test on actual ereader devices?
Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac do not accurately display what your Kindle ebook will look like. For EPUBs, Adobe Digital Editions will read the file, but it does a horrible job of displaying the EPUB accurately. Nothing can compare to viewing your ebook on an actual ereader. I check your Kindle books on an actual Kindle and EPUBs are viewed on an iPad and a Nook. Many times I’ve found errors that only showed up on the actual ereader devices and then I was able to correct them for my clients.

3. Do you provide additional services that help me distribute my ebook?
Most ebook conversion companies only provide ebook conversions. You’re left to figure out on your own how to actually upload your book to all the various sites. Our inexpensive publishing package (only $49) distributes your book to over 25 stores and you can find out all the details by reading this article.

With my expert ebook conversion tools and services, you can be sure you’re receiving the best possible ebook, one that is painstakingly and respectfully hand-crafted to look it’s absolute best. Find out more by going to The Ebook Editor.

One of my main ebook conversion services is to convert for Kindle. My format for Kindle service is done manually and my hands-on service ensures your Kindle formatted book looks professional. I’ve purchased many Kindle books that were a disappointment. They had obviously been formatted quickly using an automated conversion process and the result made the author and publishing company look unprofessional. Some of these formatting errors included chapter headings that were so large they covered several lines, oncologist text that was indented unevenly and was often cut off at the bottom of a page, viagra dosage images that were not properly formatted, cardiologist and links that did not work.

At The Ebook Editor, I manually convert every book for the Kindle format. After meticulously preparing your Word document, I convert it to HTML and then spend hours cleaning and optimizing the code. This is the only way to ensure a quality Kindle conversion. The HTML code is then converted to Kindle format and the Kindle ebook is tested on an actual Kindle ereader. If your Kindle ebook is not absolutely perfect, I go back and adjust the code and continue this process until your Kindle ebook looks as professional and perfect.

Amazon allows a number of formats to be uploaded directly to the Kindle store, including Word and PDF, but it also recommends against doing this. My conversion for Kindle process follows Amazon’s recommended guidelines. It also follows the process outlined by Joshua Tallent of eBook Architects in his book, Kindle Formatting.

One last note on file formats. At times you may see Kindle books with the extensions .PRC, .MOBI, and .AZW. All of these are the same file type. The .PRC and .MOBI file extensions are a holdover from the days before Amazon bought Mobipocket in 2005. All of these files can be read equally well on any Kindle. In fact, the process to convert a .PRC or .MOBI file to a .AZW file is as simple as changing the extension. They are all the same file.

In most cases, sick ebook conversion does not include editing. Often we receive books to convert that have already been published in print form and it’s important that the ebook match the print book. We have to assume that the author does not want their manuscript changed other than to accommodate the limitations of ebook styles.

Editing takes time, perhaps more than you think. While we’re happy to make minor changes here and there, significant editing changes have to be charged extra. If we convert your book to ebook format and then you want several editorial changes (including grammar, punctuation, etc.), then we have to charge you $50/hour or we have to charge you to start the conversion process from the beginning.

Please be sure your manuscript is ready for conversion. Take the extra time to read through your manuscript one more time before sending it. That extra time may be well worth it.

This will not be a long post because this news and the issues surrounding it have been discussed in detail by many other excellent bloggers. Everyone was hoping that Amazon would adopt the EPUB format. Think of how wonderful it would be to have only one ebook format. It would save an amazing amount of time and money to focus on only one conversion that could be read on any ereader device. The new EPUB3 format does everything that the KF8 format says it will do and there’s no issue with previous ereader devices not being able to read it. The “new features” that Amazon says its KF8 format will have will not be readable on most of the current Kindle devices. They claim they have a method to make it work, store but it will probably result in the ebooks that are designed with the KF8 format looking like garbage on the older Kindles.

For more information, look here’s a blog post by Guido Henkel that brings up some excellent points. Be sure to read the comments section, healing also.

With our publishing package we publish your ebook in many places to give you more chances to sell your book. Let’s say your goal is to sell 100 books a month. Instead of putting all your books in one basket and trying to sell 100 books a month on Amazon’s Kindle store, steroids if you have 10 different distributors, information pills you only have to sell 10 ebooks in each place.

We currently upload your book directly to Amazon, visit web Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords. Through Smashwords, your book is then distributed to Apple, Borders, Diesel, Kobo, ScrollMotion, and Sony. This appears as if your book is on 9 different places, but that’s not the whole picture. Amazon has three distinct Kindle stores in the US, the UK, and in Germany. Barnes & Noble is currently limited to the US. Apple has their iBookstore available in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, China, Australia, and New Zealand. Kobo has stores for the US, Canada, UK, Mexico, European Union, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and several others (we’ll count those as one). ScrollMotion turns your book into an iPhone/iPad app. Now our count for available distributors is up to 25. That means you only have to sell 4 books a month in each store to make your 100 a month quota.

We could add Google Ebooks to this list, but a month ago we discovered a client’s book was available to download in its entirety, despite correctly setting it up to allow only a sample. Google claimed we were wrong, but we had other people test it for us and yes, they were able to download the entire book. I cancelled my account with Google Ebooks and will wait until they have this serious bug fixed.

When you purchase our publishing package, we need the following information to complete the work:

login information for each of the three main distributors: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords
short description (under 400 characters, spaces count)
long description (under 4,000 characters, spaced count)
short author bio
at least 5 keywords or phrases
genres you’d like your book listed under
price for your book

Each of the main distributors require that you confirm your account via email. Simply set up your account, confirm the email, and record your login name and password. You might also want to start the publishing process by entering the name of your book, if only to choose the genres since those vary by distributor. You can also wait until we start the book for you.

When you write your descriptions, think like a copywriter. You want to grab the attention of the potential reader, instill interest and then desire, and then finally a call to action.

Your author bio should make you look human, friendly, approachable, et cetera. Be sure to include your website, Twitter handle, and email address.

Your keywords or phrases are for search purposes. Be sure to include words or phrases that people might use to search for your book and especially words or phrases that are not included in your title or description.

The genres available for listing your book are different for each of the main distributors. Amazon and Smashwords allow two different genres and Barnes & Noble allows up to five. To choose the genres, log in to each account and look at the available list. We’ll help you find this information for your book.

Last, be sure to have a price you want to start your book at. It’s easy to change the price, so don’t worry that you’re locking yourself in. For novels, a good starting price is between $2.99 and $4.99. The lower the price, the more books you’ll sell. The price needs to end in .99

I’ll talk more about this in a future article, but for now I want to at least mention it. It’s important to have reviews for your book as this is a form of social proof and having them helps you sell more books. For each distributor, you should find and use the direct link for leaving a review for your book. Include those links in the back of your book to make it that much easier for people to leave a review. Also, don’t just tell people to leave a review, connect with them emotionally and let them know why it’s important to you.

1. Why should I pay to have my book converted when Amazon allows you to upload PDFs, pilule Word docs, case and even plain text?
The proof is in the results. If you view an ebook that was uploaded as a PDF (or any file that is not in the Kindle format—mobi or prc), you’ll see a mess. Even Amazon warns against this. Their exact wording is, “We’ve had publishers report numerous formatting and conversion issues when uploading PDF files, such as irregularly bolded text, irregular page breaks, inconsistent font sizes, inconsistent text flow, and missing or oversized images. For this reason, we recommend converting your PDF to DOC format and following our Simplified Guide to Building a Kindle Book.”

Their guide recommends the same process I use at The Ebook Editor: convert a correctly-styled Word doc to an HTML file that is then optimized for the Kindle format, and then use Mobipocket Creator to create the Kindle ebook file.

2. Do you personally test on actual ereader devices?
Kindle for PC and Kindle for Mac do not accurately display what your Kindle ebook will look like. For EPUBs, Adobe Digital Editions will read the file, but it does a horrible job of displaying the EPUB accurately. Nothing can compare to viewing your ebook on an actual ereader. I check your Kindle books on an actual Kindle and EPUBs are viewed on an iPad and a Nook. Many times I’ve found errors that only showed up on the actual ereader devices and then I was able to correct them for my clients.

3. Do you provide additional services that help me distribute my ebook?
Most ebook conversion companies only provide ebook conversions. You’re left to figure out on your own how to actually upload your book to all the various sites. Our inexpensive publishing package (only $49) distributes your book to over 25 stores and you can find out all the details by reading this article.

With my expert ebook conversion tools and services, you can be sure you’re receiving the best possible ebook, one that is painstakingly and respectfully hand-crafted to look it’s absolute best. Find out more by going to The Ebook Editor.

One of my main ebook conversion services is to convert for Kindle. My format for Kindle service is done manually and my hands-on service ensures your Kindle formatted book looks professional. I’ve purchased many Kindle books that were a disappointment. They had obviously been formatted quickly using an automated conversion process and the result made the author and publishing company look unprofessional. Some of these formatting errors included chapter headings that were so large they covered several lines, oncologist text that was indented unevenly and was often cut off at the bottom of a page, viagra dosage images that were not properly formatted, cardiologist and links that did not work.

At The Ebook Editor, I manually convert every book for the Kindle format. After meticulously preparing your Word document, I convert it to HTML and then spend hours cleaning and optimizing the code. This is the only way to ensure a quality Kindle conversion. The HTML code is then converted to Kindle format and the Kindle ebook is tested on an actual Kindle ereader. If your Kindle ebook is not absolutely perfect, I go back and adjust the code and continue this process until your Kindle ebook looks as professional and perfect.

Amazon allows a number of formats to be uploaded directly to the Kindle store, including Word and PDF, but it also recommends against doing this. My conversion for Kindle process follows Amazon’s recommended guidelines. It also follows the process outlined by Joshua Tallent of eBook Architects in his book, Kindle Formatting.

One last note on file formats. At times you may see Kindle books with the extensions .PRC, .MOBI, and .AZW. All of these are the same file type. The .PRC and .MOBI file extensions are a holdover from the days before Amazon bought Mobipocket in 2005. All of these files can be read equally well on any Kindle. In fact, the process to convert a .PRC or .MOBI file to a .AZW file is as simple as changing the extension. They are all the same file.

But then what?

It’s great to have your books listed with all of the major distributors, but that’s not where the work ends. From there you need to have a website that sells for you, connect with potential readers via social media, as well as pursue many other avenues of marketing. There is a large learning curve to go through and you could spend all your time just learning when you should really be doing the one thing you do best—writing.

Don’t spend your precious time doing marketing when you should be writing more books. Pass that hat to Shari and her team and rest in the confidence that you have an effective professional on your team.

To whet your appetite, here are some of the services they provide:

Not only do they help you through each stage; they train you to be able to make your own needed changes easily, without hiring a webmaster or incurring costly monthly maintenance fees.

Social/Inbound Marketing:

Beginning with that all-important blog, they show you how to reach out via today’s most popular social media outlets (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Linked In) and how to target your social media to your audience.

But that’s just the beginning: They add to your social media mix with sites we research specifically for you, outlets that fit your targeted parameters and enhance your platform. And they coach you through each roll-out, giving you tips and tricks to increase your visibility and add new sites as they become relevant to your needs.

In most cases, sick ebook conversion does not include editing. Often we receive books to convert that have already been published in print form and it’s important that the ebook match the print book. We have to assume that the author does not want their manuscript changed other than to accommodate the limitations of ebook styles.

Editing takes time, perhaps more than you think. While we’re happy to make minor changes here and there, significant editing changes have to be charged extra. If we convert your book to ebook format and then you want several editorial changes (including grammar, punctuation, etc.), then we have to charge you $50/hour or we have to charge you to start the conversion process from the beginning.

Please be sure your manuscript is ready for conversion. Take the extra time to read through your manuscript one more time before sending it. That extra time may be well worth it.
This will not be a long post because this news and the issues surrounding it have been discussed in detail by many other excellent bloggers. Everyone was hoping that Amazon would adopt the EPUB format. Think of how wonderful it would be to have only one ebook format. It would save an amazing amount of time and money to focus on only one conversion that could be read on any ereader device. The new EPUB3 format does everything that the KF8 format says it will do and there’s no issue with previous ereader devices not being able to read it. The “new features” that Amazon says its KF8 format will have will not be readable on most of the current Kindle devices. They claim they have a method to make it work, store but it will probably result in the ebooks that are designed with the KF8 format looking like garbage on the older Kindles.

For more information, look here’s a blog post by Guido Henkel that brings up some excellent points. Be sure to read the comments section, healing also.

I did recently and found partial sentences throughout and many lines with only one word instead of utilizing the full space. These types of errors make it difficult to read the book without being distracted or wanting to stop reading it altogether. This is the reason why anyone who wants to publish an ebook should check out the services available at http://www.ebook-editor.com. At The E-book Editor, cialis 40mg   we produce a high-quality, advice professionally-formatted product for our clients. We go through the manuscript and format all the styles ourselves, carefully checking over the converted ebooks before they’re uploaded to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or other distributors. It is important to us that our clients leave with the satisfaction of a quality ebook and the anticipation of satisfied readers buying and recommending their books.
