We asked our client Margaret Webster from London Microguides to give us her insight into writing and publishing an e-book – following her recent experiences of doing this.
Here is what she says:
eBooks are big, big news.
You’ve probably heard the headlines:
- Amazon is selling 105 ebooks for every 100 print books
- e-readers are the most gifted Christmas present in history
- Self-published authors, Jock Locke and Amanda Hocking, have both sold over 1 million ebooks.
The world of book publishing is being turned upside down. Authors no longer need to seek permission and sponsorship from traditional publishing companies. They can format their own book and upload it directly to online book stores, including Amazon.
If you want to publish a book, you can. But should you?
