I’ll convert your book to Kindle and Nook formats while you spend your valuable time writing. Amazon reports it now sells more eBooks than paper books.
“Customers are now choosing Kindle books more often than print books. We had high hopes that this would happen eventually, but we never imagined it would happen this quickly – we’ve been selling print books for 15 years and Kindle books for less than four years,” said Jeff Bezos, Founder and CEO, Amazon.com, in a statement.
For every 100 traditional books, Amazon says it now sells 105 Kindle downloads.
Barnes and Noble is providing new competition, too. The Nook Color received a major upgrade in April 2011, that makes it, in effect, a Tablet – all at about half the cost of an iPad. While the Kindle is solely a book reader (and mp3 player) and has a black and white display, the Nook Color shows off your book in full color, plays videos, connects to the web, and paves the way for enhanced eBooks – those with all sorts of multimedia included with the book.
It’s true that both Amazon and Barnes and Noble provide methods to upload your book to their sites. They even provide a way to upload Microsoft Word files. But your book deserves better. EBook readers, such as the Kindle and Nook, use code to display your words, much like the code used by web browsers. By including the proper code, your book can be properly divided into chapters, have lines properly justified, have a complete Table of Contents (and an index if you’d like), and on the Nook, have color.
You, as an author, need to spend your time on what you love – creating books. Let me take care of the technical issues – writing the code and formatting the eBook.
How long does it take, and what does it cost? It depends on just what you need and what you have. For instance, a Microsoft Word file is much easier for me to work with than a .pdf you’ve received from your publisher. But both can be converted. If needed, I’ll also help you set up the accounts at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other sites, and help you upload the actual files. Additionally, I’ll send you files in both formats so that you can sell your book directly on your own website.
