Amazon Create Space provides an alternate to Ereaders


BookcoverToday I activated my new book, How To Publish An Ebook For Under $350, on Amazon’s Create Space. Why would you ask would anyone want to purchase a hard copy of the book if the intended topic was ebook publishing? The are a couple of things to consider for a “How To” book that is designed to be sold as both a stand-alone primer and as a text book in a classroom setting. One, some people don’t have ereaders. Two, some of the HTML code text in the hard copy is turned 90 degrees to eliminate line-wrapping which can be annoying in the epub version. Three, it was free so why not provide an alternative media for my readers to enjoy. I did the same thing for my ebook, Metamorphosis, and to date, twenty percent of my sales are paperback.
