There’s never been a more exciting time for writers than now. With the popularity of e-books and the simplicity and low cost of e-book production anyone can be a published author. This doesn’t mean that you can just churn out any old thing and think it will sell. The cream always rises to the top – if it’s not well-written and professionally edited it will sink without a trace.
The drawback is that there are so many quality e-books being published that it can seem a daunting prospect to stand out in such a crowded marketplace. The good part is that you’re no longer at the mercy of just a few in the publishing industry and have to suffer a continuous round of rejection slips.
In my last post I mentioned that I’m resurrecting one of my trunk manuscripts to publish as an e-book. This will be my first published novel, so I’m pretty excited. For everybody in a similar situation, thinking of e-publishing or in the process of doing so, I’m going to share with you my experiences, bloopers and all. And hopefully you’ll learn as much as I do along the way. Or better still, share your own experiences with me. This is an outline of what I’ll be posting:
Anything else I should add? Do you have any good advice to pass on to me?
