Amazon makes it easy to publish your own ebook - but the challenge is getting punters to find and download it. Ebook author Nik Rawlinson shows how it's done
It’s never been cheaper or easier to publish a book. Agents and traditional publishers are being squeezed out, and writers are selling directly to Kindle, Kobo and iPad owners. The trouble is, it’s become too easy: the market has exploded, and you’re now competing with a greater number of potential JK Rowlings than ever before.
On these pages, we’ll explore how to give your work the best chance of success. If you haven’t already written your masterpiece, it begins with choosing a subject that people want to read about - but one that isn’t already saturated. We’ll also show you how to work around Amazon’s block on free books if using Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), boost series sales by letting readers borrow selected titles, and navigate the pros and cons of enrolling your books in KDP Select.
