How much can an Ebook makeWhat can an eBook do?
That' s enough, and I will be sharing my experiences with my own Quit Law and Code. So far, the number for my volume is around $1,200. I call my nonfiction careers leader, quitting the law to develop softwares is what I call a great alcove. For attorneys (about 1.5 million in the United States) who are considering a careers move (450K, this along with the remainder are all assumptions) who are serious (50K), who are not worried about abstract thinking and computing (5K), would consider computer engineering a sustainable move (1K).
It took me about six month, but in the end the main emphasis was on editing, proofreading, artwork and compiling the promotional work. After submitting the product for release on Kindle Direct Publishing and Gumroad, two different ways of distributing it.
Imagine KDP as an app store for Kindle titles at Amazon and Gumroad as a kind of payments engine for your digital assets (they share the contents and give them to the purchaser once the money is received). I' had about 3 sells in all and at least one returns.
It was at this point that I took into consideration the opportunity that the script could have been a failure. I used a plattform named Leanpub to revise the whole work. What's nice about Leanpub is that you can use your own tools and post them elsewhere. It is able to deliver all common file types, MP3, epub and PDF.
First thing I did was work on a books website to gather e-mails from those you might be interested in studying (while I was still writing) the work. After registering and getting my books domains hosted (I did mine on Bluehost - very recommendable, there are a few things that make it easy to set up a base website), then I came up with programming a base website with some information about the books and cabled a plain interface to gather email to give an example to people.
Your blogs serve as a showcase to showcase your letter, and the site serves as a shopping hopper. I found out that most of my readership came through my diary and/or the interrogation and into the Amazon leaf for the product.
That Amazon alone did not help me in finding it. So you can't wait for a sale if you have the ledger in the wilderness, the ledger in the wilderness. A few desktops after the release I found an interesting web application named SatoshiBox, which is a bitcoincoversion of Gumroad.
This means you can post your files to sell them to your reader/consumer for bitscoin. Amazingly, I was selling several of the books in this release. It was at this point that I really did accept the fact that I had to do more writing in order to focus my interest on the script and make the case for the transition to developing softwares from the attorneys.
First of these the Law - The Practice of Law - A Rough Look at the Professions. Though I didn't get too many straight sells from this pole, but I did get the notice of Zach Abramowitz, who is a columnist off the blogs above the law.
On that date, Quit Law ranks 1000 of all Amazon Kindle novels, and it was the number one "programming" ebook. Now I can sell one or two pieces of the product per days - a figure that helps when shopping. To write, especially to write textbooks, is truly a work of charity.
As to whether it is worthwhile to make an eBook in financial sense? However, for the amount of work I have done, the wage of my daily employment is higher than the amount of cash the books would give me back. At the same peculiarities, the many links, discussions and the rediscovery of the pleasure of lettering were inestimable.
I suggest you try if you find it fun and have some information that would help others. You can say the same about typing. Don't write makes sure that your thoughts, suggestions and tales are not divided.
