The Benefit of Publishing eBooks versus Printed Books

ebooks vs books original artworkFor those who have experienced the labor of writing a book and getting your thoughts out of your mind, the next steps are publishing and printing.  In the day of entrepreneurial minds, many have chosen to forego the traditional method of finding a publisher.  In the digital age, some have decided that an eBook is the best option over hardcopy.

When thinking about self publishing and presenting your work via eBook there are two questions:

  1. What is the easiest and most cost-efficient way to produce an eBook?
  2. Where will it be distributed?

With these questions in mind, NeceSs is taking the opportunity explore this in the simplest form possible.

eBooks

  • Save time on writing pitches and finding a publisher.
  • Little to no initial overhead.
  • Maintain your creative license.

The easiest and most cost efficient way to produce an eBook is to first set some time daily for critical thinking.  You will need a desktop program that will allow you to design a nice cover.  Many can attain this in Microsoft Word but some prefer Adobe InDesign. Next you may need to find a freelance editor.  You can locate a good editor on websites such as www.freelancer.com or www.elance.com.   Depending on the length of your eBook, this may cost you anywhere from $25 to $200.  You may also contact your local college or university and ask if any professor in the English or Journalism Departments are searching for teaching tools that will allow students to gain real life editing experience.  This can cut out the cost for paying an editor.  Your next step is more research to find out the proper eBook specs.  You will then need to locate an avenue to market and sell your units.  Most of these do not require an initial fee.  Some well-known sites for selling your books are eJunkie and Lulu.  These require a monthly fee and a percentage of the sale of the unit.  Many opt to sell the eBook on their personal website through PayPal.

If you take the eBook route, the most important tip to note is it does take time.  EBook sales tripled those of traditional printed books in 2011 but printed books are here to stay.  If you want to see the bulk of your heart, sweat and tears back into your pocket without much overhead, self publishing your eBook may be the option for you.

    Calling on eBook authors to support one another. No matter the genre, let’s get our eBooks out to the world. Readers are interested even if not in print. They don’t have to be sold through major internet retailers. Let pull together, support on all social media sites and purchase, purchase and purchase. Ebooks can be a gift for family and friends that like certain genre, love reading in general, forward as gift(s) to others and/or just like supporting.
