Now more than ever it is easier for aspiring (and already successful) authors to create books, build an audience for them, and enjoy the spoils of having a successful publication, all without the aid of traditional publishers.
This eBook is a series of short essays and discussions on how to do just that. Approaching the authoring process can be daunting without the assistance of a publisher to hold your hand, but with this book, you’ll have the combined knowledge gained through several self-published and traditionally published projects and the input of several authors who have successfully launched their own technical book projects.
This book isn’t some B.S. guide written by a marketing droid who’s never actually written books before. This is a set of hard-learned lessons on the writing and marketing process for eBooks by someone who’s been there.
Inside you’ll find…
Tons of excellent, proven marketing advice. Sell your eBook like a pro!
Key techniques for structuring your book’s content for maximum effectiveness
Tips for keeping you sane, productive, and healthy during the writing process
Analyses of the toolsets used in writing eBooks and which one will work for you
Techniques and hints for developing your book idea into a full-blown concept
Discover some of the best kept secrets about getting (and keeping!) customers
