So many of us have had the fantasy of having a book published. With self-publishing quickly overtaking traditional publishing, there has never been a better time to make your dreams become reality. The big publishing houses turn up their noses at “indie” authors, but the publishing industry is experiencing a paradigm shift. Remember what happened to music with iTunes?
You have to convert your book to all the different ebook formats to make it available on Amazon, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and many more. You can do it yourself, or hire a firm to do it for you.
You have to know publishing lexicon. What the heck are ISBNs? I’ve come to learn if you know what you’re doing (which I didn’t) you don’t articulate the acronym letters. It’s pronounced “izbins” by those in the know. Who knew?
