How to make a Book and Publish itCreating and publishing a book
eBook or "Real" Books - What should you do first? |
Historically, conventional publishers have followed a clearly delineated route to first publish a "real" eBook in the most costly size, followed by a cheaper pocket and eBook. Do you want a printed textbook to appear before an ebook? The majority of the titles I have written are available in both printed and digital form, but when I started to publish it, I only made it available as an eBook.
I wanted the product to be available quickly and with a minimal amount of latency. It was a discussion of the topics I was confronted with as a Brit who came to Brazil in 2013, and I wanted it to be very recent at that point with comments on topicalities.
It' turned out well. For a long while Amazon has presented it as the number one brazilian guide and when I look at their chart as I write this piece, I see that it stays in the top 20 for South America as well. However, I now believe it was a failure to publish it only as an emailook.
Both is the true response to the eBook or printed work. But I don't think the order of release is important now, as long as the releases are made at about the same one. A few people are eBook-lovers. Others want to hold a natural product in their hand and adorn their house's bookcase with beauty.
But the self-publication of an eBook and a printed one is a little different. Probably you will have to prepare your completed script in two different steps. It is not possible to specify text sizes, as the eReader allows the user to modify all this anyway.
You' ll also need to include a link, similar to website link, so that the readers can click and find the most important parts of the books, such as the index or paragraph. Preparing your printing books for printing is more of a "what-you-see-what-you-get" proces. You' re required to make sure your documents are sized to the right page for your pages, that your fonts and fonts look exactly as you want them to look in your books, and that detail like page numbers and the beginning of a section is used on an uneven page.
They are two different procedures and after doing both a few of them, I suggest that the fastest way to get your eBook out once you have a definitive script is to start the eBook first. Preparing for an eBook is quite quick, as only a restricted number of formats are permitted and you can use free previews such as Calibre to see what it will look like on an eBook browser.
The eBook is an eBook that you can use to create an eBook. Once you have the eBook out there, you can concentrate on taking the same script and reformatting it for the bodily one. It will take longer because once you have finished the copy, you will need to buy a copy and verify that it has been properly reprinted. If you are lucky, you can publish the eBook and the hardcover within a fortnight or two and both will be available so that clients who like both formats will be happy-be.
