Open your own online bookstore this week
I love eBooks. They’re portable, don’t waste paper, and are easy to produce and distribute.
I also love that they have democratized publishing: no more looking for an agent and negotiating a contract so you can share your knowledge. The process has been reduced to:
- Sit down and write your eBook
- Create a PDF version of it
- Load it up on a website to share, and tell the world about it
You can sell eBooks, or simply use them to spread ideas. Either way, they’re powerful tools for getting your message out into the world.
Last June Kelly Kingman and I launched eBook Evolution, our complete toolkit for writing, creating and marketing eBooks. [This product is now off the market: thanks for your interest!]
She already offered Sticky eBooks Formula, a great resource for would-be eBook authors.
On my own, I had developed customizable eBook templates using open source (free) software — but they were only available to people who took the course I created that ran at the same time.
We realized if we brought these two pieces together, and added information about marketing eBooks, we’d have a complete kit that would enable people to take eBook creation into their own hands.
Since eBook Evolution launched, we regularly receive emails with feedback from people who are using it to write, create and launch their eBooks.
Sometimes they even attach a sample of their work: we love to see that!
