Successful Self-Publishing: How to self-publish and market your book in ebook and print

Do you want to successfully self-publish?

There are thousands of new books being published every day, but many self-published books quickly sink to the bottom of the pile.

Many authors are frustrated because there are so many options for self-publishing, and they don’t know which one to choose or what will be best for their book.

Others spend thousands of dollars to publish and end up broken-hearted with the result.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

I’ve spent the last seven years self-publishing bestselling fiction and non-fiction books and in 2011, I left my day job to become a full-time author entrepreneur. I’ve made lots of mistakes along the way, but through the process of self-publishing 17 books, I’ve learned the most effective way to publish and market your books. In this book, I’ll share everything with you.

The book includes:

- What you need to know before you self-publish

- Why self-publishing an ebook is a good idea

- How to format an ebook

- Exclusivity and going direct

- How to self-publish an ebook

- Why self-publish a print book

- Print-on-demand will change your life

- What you need to know before you print

- How to self-publish a print book

- What to do if you want help with the publishing process

- After self-publishing

- How much does it cost to self-publish?

- How do you get paid when you self-publish?

- Book marketing principles

- How to market fiction

- How to market non-fiction

Plus, links to more useful resources.

Kindle Voyage E-reader, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi) with Adaptive Built-in Light, PagePress Sensors, Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers

Kindle Voyage is thin and light, with the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display, plus reimagined page turns and an adaptive front light.

Hero Image

Brilliantly crisp display

The high-resolution display (300 ppi) features sharp, dark text that reads even more like the printed page. The micro-etched glass display diffuses light to eliminate glare and match the feel of paper. Kindle Voyage features the brightest, highest resolution, and highest contrast display of any Kindle.

Effortless page turns

PagePress allows you to turn the page without lifting a finger. Simply apply pressure on the bezel to turn the page, and PagePress will provide a silent haptic response for consistent and immediate feedback. PagePress is a custom-designed force sensor made of carbon and silver, which reacts to a subtle increase of pressure, triggers a page-turn, and provides a haptic response only your thumb can perceive.

PagePress Image

Light that adjusts with you

Kindle Voyage can be read in bright sunlight or total darkness—and it’s smart enough to know the difference. The new adaptive front light automatically adjusts the brightness of the display based on your environment, and can even be fine-tuned further to your personal preferences. When reading in the dark, the adaptive front light slowly lowers the display’s brightness over time to match the way the eye responds to darkness.

Remarkably thin design

At just 7.6mm thin, Kindle Voyage is comfortable to hold in one hand for long reading sessions. Kindle Voyage was designed to come one step closer to a sheet of paper, with a flush-front bezel for a clean, streamlined design. With a magnesium back and a specially-reinforced glass front, Kindle Voyage is both durable and sleek.

Word Wise

Word Wise, available on many popular English language titles, makes it easier to enjoy and quickly understand more challenging books. Short and simple definitions automatically appear above difficult words, so you can keep reading with fewer interruptions. Tap on a word to bring up a simple card with definitions, synonyms, and more. You can adjust the number of hints you see with a simple slider.

Expanded X-Ray
