SECTION ONE TITLE: “Rants and Raves of an Indie eBook Publisher!” SUBTITLE: “Achieving Success with Digital Books” In this eBook, I offer tips to other indie/independent authors who are considering publishing their eBooks with sellers such as the Amazon KDP and Pubit! (Barnes & 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 experience with these type 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.
SECTION TWO TITLE: “How I Brought Good from a Bad Online Publishing Experience” SUBTITLE: “Creating Positive Outcomes from Negative Writing Gigs & Avoiding Them” This is now my third short subject book, regarding a negative publishing experience I have had on the world wide web, that I was eventually able to glean positive things from. While I have written about other similar experiences in past books, this is my first time for relating this particular one. I will not be referring to any websites by name, as I provide some details regarding my experience. There are many writers for content websites and those who are publishing their self-authored eBooks who have at-times, experienced the bad side of dealing with online business entities, just as I have. For many, this results in them putting a halt to their efforts in attempting to publish successfully because they literally feel as if they have hit a wall that hinders their ability to grow as aspiring writers. This is especially true when they have several bad experiences with e-commerce publishing companies, which can leave them with a bad impression in-general, toward businesses that are within this field. It is my opinion, that just about any negative online experience in publishing, can present positive possibilities and certainly not all publishing opportunities are potentially negative because many have great potential and are offered by highly ethical companies. With this said, it sometimes requires honest-but-shrewd thinking and a determination to move forward regardless of any setbacks that might be experienced by developing authors. This is what I hope to have conveyed within the pages of this eBook.
