published my first book
I published my first book myself last month: I' ve learnt a great deal while working on it and wanted to split the highpoints. It describes what kind of softwares I wrote, how I researched, how I employed an editorial staff and how I published the book. It' not about issues like how to build a habituality.
This app is good for brief posts, but a long history needs a room for organisation. I like Scrivener as a penholder. It' has a sharp study curve, but once it' s learned, it works for both literature and non-fiction. A free 30-day evaluation version costs $45.
It is recommended to use the Mac OS over the Windows versions. The Windows interface was a bit more difficult to use (the user interface is a little different). In seconds you can switch from the PDF printversion to the ePub or Kindle form. Remember that you must have KindleGen installed to access Kindle eBooks.
I' ve used the Hemingway app to get feedbacks about my letter. It is a correction utility that makes your typing fat and clear. To write a non-fiction book means to research a great deal about the subjects you will be discussing. I' ve used Actionable and Blink list and Physics as information resources.
If you subscribe to our Premier Edition, you can hear the book reviews on the go. As I commuted to the station every single day, I was able to complete a book. I' ve seen the full versions of some of the titles in the picture and can attest that 95% of the important material is contained in the overviews.
I have all my book content along with all my interesting features. When you write a brief story like this, it may not make much use ("Hello, typos!"), but I can tell you that it's enough for an entire book. Our primary objective in proof-reading is pricing.
Using Fiverr I could only pay 50? for the whole book (100 pages). With all the research and literacy efforts and resources, this amount of funding is not enough to provide high value contents to people. So I tried Blurb, a book printer, before I published the book on Amazon.
This is good but the price cannot compare to CreateSpace. If you are posting a book on Amazon, CreateSpace will be used for publication (Amazon purchased the business in 2005). Your print cost is lower with good print qualitiy. Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) was chosen as the ultimate solution.
KDP allows you to get to market quickly and release both your own version, in 24-48 h. An ISBN is required to release your pocket book (Kindle eBooks do not!). And the good part is that Amazon gives you the opportunity to get one for free.
When you do, you can only buy your copy from CreateSpace (aka Amazon). An ISBN in Spain will cost about 50?. Prices vary from countries. With the knowledge that the print will look exactly like this, you can test every page. Amazons recommend you automaticly the prices for your book under consideration of the sellingdates.
At any time you can determine the desired charge, as long as you comply with the permitted min and max according to size (see figure below). You can see on the picture that the license fee is 60% for the softcover and 70% for the Kindle-edition. You can still edit the page descriptions and book content after pressing this buttom.
When you find a spelling mistake in your hardcover book, you can keep uploading the script and it will be corrected in less than 24hrs. Now, go start writing your fucking book.
