Why eBook Self-Publishing Is So Important

While many of us still love nothing better than the woodsy smell and satisfying crackle of a brand-new paperback, there’s no question eBooks also have their place.iPad/iPhone Premium Edition

Whether its an iPad or iPod, Kindle Fire, NOOK or smartphone, an eBook reading device provides incomparable portability. Every book you’ve ever loved or wanted to read can be right there at your fingertips in one compact, electronic toy, along with your daily morning news, monthly magazine subscriptions and even RSS feeds. Some devices even mimic the look — if not the aroma — of the printed page.

Barnes & Noble NOOK EditionAnd, slowly but surely, libraries, schools and other institutions are acknowledging eBooks as an important part of a new era in reading, incorporating eReaders as part of their collections. Because eBooks are inexpensive to produce, virtual libraries give actual libraries the ability to acquire free eBooks, such as works of classic literature and reference books, and beef up their collections in a highly cost-effective manner. The technology also means libraries can “lend” eBooks just as they would a hard copy; at the end of the lending period, the book automatically expires — no need to drive back to return it.

For authors, eBooks represent an opportunity to reach out to a whole segment of book enthusiasts who may be untouchable in the paperback- or hardback-only market. Young readers, college students, parents and others who may be woefully short on personal shelf space are turning to eBooks for practical reasons.

Others are tapping into the unparalleled convenience and immediacy of instantly searchable and downloadableAmazon Kindle Edition entertainment. If you’re selling only hard copies, you’re shutting out millions of potential readers who could stumble upon your book in no time with a simple keyword search.

EBook publishing also increases the odds of sales growth by appealing to the “early adopters” who are embracing a technology that is trending up. Marketing an eBook across several electronic formats further increases your sales potential by exposing your book to readers who may be loyal to specific eReader devices and formats.

Self-Publishing Author Spotlight: Sherri Rabinowitz at Barnes and Noble

Author Sherri Rabinowitz recently sent us this picture from her book signing event at her local Barnes and Noble. 

Sherri Rabinowitz has been writing since she was a small child and was inspired by Ray Bradbury and Agatha Christie.  She had always loved writing, but has had to make a living in a varied number of ways: she has worked as an actress, a travel agent and in several forms of customer service.  Her passion, though, has always been writing.  She loves and enjoys both reading and writing fan fiction.  Fantasy Time Inc. is her second work of original fiction.

Fantasy Time Inc.

In the future we as a people will be going through many strange and conflicting changes.  We will be traveling and living in space and under water.  We will have an even better network of communications and transportations, but we will still need to have a vacation and to relax from that antiseptic new environment.  People will need an escape.

Most people dream of the future and the past, because no one romanticizes about their own time.
