Publisher's Summary

In this audiobook I offer tips to other indie/independent authors who are considering publishing their eBooks with sellers such as the Amazon KDP and Nook Press (Barnes and Noble) publishing platforms. I will additionally include some information regarding my personal experiences writing for content websites (sites that publish articles in exchange for ad-revenue shares) in consideration of the fact that many indie publishers begin their writing experiences with these types of venues before advancing onward to eBook publishing.

While I may at times have straightforward things to say about advantages or disadvantages involved in publishing and selling through these types of venues, I do not resort to degrading language toward those I have had less-than-positive experiences with. I will also be frank regarding sales or publishing issues I have experienced as an independent author, but since I do share much of this information from a personal perspective, there will be a few inevitable rants and raves added in from time to time.

My best publishing experiences have been with Amazon, both their Kindle Direct Publishing (eBooks) and their CreateSpace (paperbacks) divisions. This doesn't mean that I don't have good things to say about other publishing platforms, because I certainly do, but the outcomes I experienced do not reflect what every independent publisher will experience with same venues or platforms. Many factors are involved in publishing success, including the genres one plans to cover (types and subjects of eBooks being published) and how one plans to promote them. At the same time, I feel there are things we can learn from fellow publisher experiences. If you're a publisher, especially of the indie type, I believe you will find my shared experiences intriguing.
