Do you want to become a best-selling author at the No.1 eBook Store, the Amazon Kindle? Go for Kindle Conversion

Kindle conversion publishing books

You may be an efficient writer, loaded with many more highly effective ideas on various aspects of life like social, economic, physical health and so on, for years and years. You may even have put them into words, which are available in bundles of papers, with the idea of getting it published and spread to the reader population across the globe. Like most other writers, you may also be procrastinating, who keep postponing the idea of putting their thoughts in a book and get it published, for some reason or the other. Do not hesitate any longer. The gate to publishing has now been made easy through ePublishing. Yes, put your ideas – type the out on a .Doc file and give a thorough reading. Make corrections, additions and deletions as needed. Further, get your manuscript edited well by a professional copyeditor, in order to ensure error-free content.

Otherwise, if you are yet to start writing – yet to put your ideas into words, start to do that without any further delay.   Unless you start, you cannot get it over, even after years. Give no room for procrastination. Move ahead. Open a Word page and write down your favorite topic (you may change it later, if needed). Start pouring out your ideas on the subject chosen. Collect relevant information from the internet or other reference books or so. Add those to your content and get the same re-written in your own style. Once you finish off your draft, leave minimum three days and then go through it to check for corrections with a fresh mind and fresh eyes. Get your draft edited by a professional Editor, as mentioned above – this is a must.

Now, to start with, publishing your first eBook should take place in Amazon’s Kindle eBook publishing platform, which has been leading as the No.1 eBook publishing as well as selling platform. When it comes for eBooks, it is Amazon’s Kindle eBooks and Kindle eReader devices that come first into the minds of eBook readers.

Get your eBook well-prepared

After finalizing your content, that is, once the editing part is over, you should find a best conversion service provider for kindle, to get your book converted into Kindle-specific AZW file format. You may have an ePub file version too, if you would prefer, which you could use to publish in other leading sites like the Apple, Barnes and Noble’s Nook, Kobo and so on. The service provider should have some prerequisites such as, vastly experienced in handling Kindle conversion processes, the one who involve manual intervention to handle the processes instead of depending on automated processes, the one who have up-to-date (latest) technical knowledge, that is, the company should be able to use the latest version of file format for conversion, the one that has a team of experts to handle the process in a highly professional manner and the one with good credentials from its clients.

 Marketing Role should be played by you only

As a self-publisher, it is you, who is totally responsible for the marketing of your eBook. Spread news about your eBook to the world through the very many social links available – the facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and so on, send out newsletter through emails, post a blog narrating your book, offer free sample (may be the first chapter at least), and do whatever possible – hard work pays and quality gets paid. Then, you will for sure become the most-wanted and best-selling author at the world famous Amazon market.

THE PUBLISHING PROCESS

Five Tips on How to Start the
Self Publishing Process

To avoid the stress that comes along with self publishing, plan ahead with these five tips:

1.        Set your budget.

As soon as you have an idea for a book, start saving to have it published. Keep that money separate from any other savings you might have. Your budget can be as low as $500 or as high as $10,000+, depending on how many books you want to print, who your readers will be, and your plans for marketing your book.

2.      Prepare your schedule.

The more time you give yourself to work on your project, the less stress you’ll have. I recommend at least a year for novels and works of non-fiction and at least six months for picture books, coffee table books, books of poetry, etc.  To help you build your schedule, here’s an example of a typical self-publishing workflow.

3.       Do your research.

Learn as much as you can about the publishing process, including writing, editing, printing, designing, ebook formatting, illustrating, marketing, and distributing your book. Network and see where you can find people who can help you with your project.

4.       Upgrade your skills and/or equipment.

Learn how to edit, how to proof, how to write, and how to layout your book. Upgrade your reference books, computer software and hardware. Taking the time to upgrade your skills and spending money to upgrade your equipment will cost you in the short term, but it will save you a lot of time and money if you want to self publish for a living.

5.       Eat well, sleep well, and keep fit.

In addition to time and money, self publishing requires a lot of energy. So you’ll need all the fuel you can get to keep you going. Eat a balanced diet; get as much sleep as you can (take naps where you can fit them in); and take breaks. A half hour walk every day not only keeps you fit, but it also gives you time to think.

Above all, have fun and enjoy the process. If it’s all stress all the time, then what’s the point?

THE WRITING PROCESS

How to Create a Masterpiece

So, you’re a writer, and you want to be a published author, but you’re not sure how to get your project off the ground. You’re wondering about how much it will cost, how well it will sell, how much others will like it…  But what is it?

Is it a book of poetry, a collection of short stories, a children’s book, maybe even the next great novel? Whatever it may be, make it a true work of art, an expression of your Self, before you begin the publishing process.

To create it, you first have to feel it. Get into your Self. If you need to dig down deep into the darkest corners of your soul, then go there. If you need to revisit or relive your highest highs, then go there. Bask in the light of it. Breathe it in deep. Pull out the raw materials, the raw emotions. Feel them, absorb them, and then release it all onto the page.

As any writer who’s ever experienced writer’s block knows, translating emotions into words can sometimes be tricky. Start off by jotting down single words rather than trying to form complete lines or sentences.

Try organizing your words into three lists: nouns that tell what it is you feel, adjectives to describe how it feels, and verbs to describe what the feeling does to you.

For example, noun = “isolation”, verb = “inspired”, adjective = “alone”
Your main subject (or the main character of your story) will represent the feeling of isolation. That main subject (noun) feels alone (adjective) but is inspired (verb) by that feeling.

Now that you have your subjects, verbs, and descriptors, putting a sentence together should be a bit easier. Every writer has his/her own technique; that’s mine.

When you start with art, chances are you’ll end up with a masterpiece every time!

Why Self Publish an ebook?

Self publishing isn’t for everyone. It isn’t easy. And it isn’t always fun.

So why self publish? Well, you’ve found this website. You may also find that self publishing is for you. You’ll find that it’s not that hard. And you’ll find ways to make it fun.

There are hundreds of reasons for choosing to self publish your book, but I’ll give you five of the best:

1. You maintain full control of the process.

You set the deadlines. You set the budget. You hire your own editor, proofreader, and illustrator (if you need one). You choose what the cover of your book will look like. You decide how many copies to print. And you decide how and to whom to market your book.

2. You preserve the integrity of your work. 

You get to set your own guidelines, tell the story you want to tell, and put out the message you want to put out. Your book is your art, to share with whomever you choose to share it, not just a means to make money for some trade publisher. There are no hidden agendas. (Even if there are hidden agendas, at least you can be sure that they’ll be your own.)

3. You retain 100% of the profits.

Unless you have an illustrator or co-author contribute to the process, you get to keep all the money you make from your book.

4. You can finally exercise those bragging rights!

Having your book published is a big deal! You have every right to feel proud. And yeah, brag a little if you want, like this: I’m [your name here], author of [your book here]. But stay humble. Humility is a writer’s best quality.

5. You can share your knowledge.

More than the money, more than the bragging rights, the most rewarding part of the publishing process is the wealth of knowledge you’ll gain from it and the fact that you’ll be able to share it with others.
