Publishing Kindle And Nook Ebooks on the Internet

Upon writing and publishing an historical fiction novel, I would like to share my personal experiences in order to give the reader and potential writer a glimpse into the process. What are the trials, pitfalls and frustrations? What are the accomplishments, victories and triumphs?

Whether you are publishing, self-publishing or co-publishing a book, you have a message you want to reach as many people as possible. Ideally, you would like to make some financial returns for your investment in creativity, time and financial resources.

Offering a free download on the Internet does not seem logical or initiative for marketing a book. Logic and intuition would cause the writer and publisher to think they should sell every book to make a profit.

Marketers instruct writers and publishers to offer sample books to people who might be in a position to critique, review or refer the book to others. This is a wise investment in time and resources. The thought of simply giving away unlimited free downloads makes one think there will be nobody left to purchase the book.

This logic is inconsistent as not everybody could ever be aware of a free download period. Secondly, people still prefer to have a printed version to read and keep. Finally, readers wishing to give a book as a gift are unable offer a Kindle or Nook version to somebody who does not have the reading device.

You want people to read your book so they can offer reviews on Amazon and other sites. The reviews increase your ranking and page placement within Amazon. Amazon placement also optimizes your results in Google, Bing and Yahoo. They work together syntactically Reviews include simply offering a rating from 1 to 5 stars, a few sentences or a lengthy paragraph to a page. Potential readers rely on published reviews in selecting reading material.

In addition to receiving reviews from a multitude of readers, you can and should publish other information such “About the Author” and actual excerpts from your book in the Amazon Authors’ Section. These assist the article in being placed higher in the Amazon and Goggle searches.

An example of an excerpt on leadership from the book follows: “The miners had seen others come and go while attempting to ‘grow’ into leadership roles. They knew Raymond would be asked to repeat everything he heard them mention. The miners were aware that the quickest way to express their concerns to Mr. Thomas was to allow Raymond to overhear them. They realized Raymond would repeat their concerns, but were unaware of his sincere motives for doing so.”

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Great, writing a book, good on you, I don't think I could do that. I will just settle to reading a book.

Geoffrey, You are so right. Charles Dickens did the same with penny magazines. Thanks.

Hi Jerry, This is a very interesting read. The generation we are in does not have a reading culture and somehow books have become obsolete. We have to come up with new ways to preserve the literature and Kindle is the best option.
