Let's Talk eBook Publishing!

Every Sunday evening at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific, I host a Q&A session on Facebook LIVE called "Let's Talk Writing & Publishing!" I choose a new topic each week, and this week's topic was eBook publishing. Watch the video below if you missed it!

To recap:

  • 35% of all books sold are eBooks.
  • The average eBook is only 50-100 pages.
  • Amazon accounts for 65% of all online book sales.
  • Amazon will pay you 70% royalties on your eBook sales when your book is priced between $2.99-$9.99. Outside those brackets = 35% royalty.
  • Add an opt-in to your eBook to capture your readers' information.
  • eBooks are a nice way to build your list, promote other products and services, and link to other books you have to offer.
  • Amazon will allow you five (5) free promo days per 90 days in exchange for offering them exclusive distribution rights to your eBook by enrolling in KDP Select. This will allow you to give your book away for free, which usually results in downloads and reviews, raising your ranking!
  • If you opt NOT to enroll in KDP Select, you might also consider publishing through Smashwords and/or Nook Press.
  • There is a difference between having your book formatted and having it converted. Stay away from the word conversion!
