ebook industry is experiencing extraordinary growth and is buzzing
with activity. Ebook sales are going through the roof!
Date: 10 November 2013
From: Gary McLaren
Dear Fellow Author,
Only a few years ago people were saying that ebooks would
come and go. Many people believed they were a short-term fad
that would never replace books.
that ebook sales have overtaken print books it is
clearer than ever that ebooks are not only here to stay but
are the main format for reading as we move into the future.
couple of decades ago there wasnít much point to having
electronic books because very few people owned a computer.
How times have changed. These days itís unusual for people
not to own several devices capable of reading electronic
documents... including computers, laptops, portable e-readers
In August 2012
Amazon reported that
ebook sales have now overtaken print books in their UK
countries are still 'catching up'... reinforcing how much room
there still is for further growth!
Until a few
years ago the best way to publish an ebook was to get your
manuscript into PDF format and start selling it from your own web
site. You can still do that today however if you want to be taken
seriously as an independent author then you should also make your
ebooks available at the major ebook stores that have emerged in
recent years such as Amazon's Kindle Store and Barnes & Noble's
Now an author can take a finished manuscript and
self-publish it to the major ebook stores within a few
days. This makes it easy for fans to find your
ebooks and download these to their Kindles, Nooks, iPads,
smartphones and other e-readers.
large number of authors are now bypassing agents and
publishers and "doing it themselves". These
independent authors are earning a greater share of
the revenue from their sales than ever before!
Ebooks are turning the publishing industry upside down...
and authors are coming out on top!
John Locke became the first indie author to sell 1
million books in the Kindle store. He was followed by Amanda Hocking
Amazon recently revealed that 12 independent authors have sold 200,000 books and 30 have sold 100,000 books.
There are many more ebook
authors who are selling thousands and tens of thousands of their ebooks
has never been a better time to become a self-publishing independent
I have been
publishing and selling my own ebooks for many years. Although I had a
head start over many other writers I've still had to adapt to include
the new ebook formats and publishing procedures for getting into stores
like Amazon & Barnes & Noble.
What about you?
like to self-publish your ebooks and avoid splitting the revenue
from sales with agents and traditional publishers?
Are you confused about the different types of
unsure how to format your manuscript so that it converts properly?
In this new guide
I explain how you can publish your books to the major stores, including
instructions on how to convert your own ebooks, starting from
Microsoft Word format, into each of the main ebook formats... using
software which you can download for free.

"E-publishing is a phenomenon no
author can afford to ignore. No matter how you publish -
traditionally or on your own - your book must be in digital
format. Gary McLaren is way ahead of the curve when it comes to
ebooks. The Indie Authorís Guide to Publishing Ebooks covers the
subject expertly, thoroughly, and engrossingly (this from a
writer who ordinarily eschews adverbs!)"
"Gary, I just downloaded your
ebook. I have only had time to skim through it but it appears to
have more useful information than any other ebook I have ever
purchased. Your instructions are easy to follow and the advice
is worth a fortune. Thanks."
~ Bob James, North Carolina
"WOW!!! That's a lot
of solid information put into a concise, totally usable
document. You really over-deliver. Many thanks!"
~ T.L. Eason, New Jersey
book was really an eye opener to me. Beforehand I had been
connecting with whoever was willing to help me on Facebook,
LinkedIn, Twitter. Even though I got some help there and there,
it was not really enough or straight to the point like this
gentleman's book. I do not hesitate to recommend it to anyone
who wants to start out on publishing his/her e-book for the very
first time. All that you need is in there."
Who am I to
talk about ebook publishing? As I mentioned earlier I have already been
writing and selling ebooks for more than 11 years! I run two popular web sites
Worldwide Freelance Writer and Publish Your Own Ebooks where I help writers
with freelancing and publishing advice. I know about ebooks because
of my first-hand experience. Over the years I have written and sold around ten
ebooks, as well as a couple of dozen other information products. One
of my ebooks has now earned around twenty thousand dollars.
In terms of size the PDF version
of this guide is more than 225 pages. But PDF is not your only choice. I
know that many writers already own an e-reader so you can download this
in any of the following ebook formats: PDF, Mobi format
(for Kindle), and ePub format (for Nook, iPad,
Kobo and Sony readers).
Important, what this Guide is NOT: This is not a guide on how
to WRITE an ebook, or how to MARKET an ebook. This is about the
mechanics of publishing ebooks, how to get your manuscript into the most
important ebook formats, and how to get your ebook into the major ebook
stores. Also, it is not an advanced formatting guide for
complicated manuscript formats or enhanced ebooks.
Don't delay your move
to ebook publishing. The independent authors who are outperforming
the rest today are those who took action over the past year or two and
who have now established a strong presence in the ebook stores. The
sooner you take action the better. In the next year or two the
number of people with digital ereaders is expected to grow even more!
