Self-Publishing Authors Can Now Go Green and Save Green with New Elite E-book Publishing Package

A new Elite E-Book Publishing Package from Outskirts Press gives self-publishing authors increased distribution that promises less impact on the environment and publishing dollars.

Outskirts Press, the leading self-publishing and book marketing service provider, announced today the launch of its Elite E-book Publishing Package, which bundles three valuable e-book distribution services into one discounted publishing package. The package represents more than 25 percent savings when compared to purchasing each electronic edition separately.

The Elite E-book Publishing Package is priced hundreds of dollars below what an author would pay for a-la-carte electronic publishing services. Plus, the increased ebook exposure means greater distribution and higher sales without the need for additional paperback and hardback printing.

While self-publishing authors can still choose one or two electronic formats, combining the three allows them to reach a wider audience of readers, many of which are loyal to one electronic reading device over another. Outskirts Press simplifies the process by offering one convenient and cost-effective package that includes three popular electronic book editions:

    • Amazon Kindle Edition: Only books that have been submitted to Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) in the required format are available for Kindle readers to purchase and enjoy.
    • Apple iPad/iPhone Premium Edition: This service allows authors convenient, full distribution of iPad/iPhone electronic editions of their own books through Apple’s popular iBookstore.
    • Barnes & Noble NOOK Edition: Inclusion in this virtual bookstore allows self-published authors to tap into an important, and growing, market of readers.

For more complete information about each service included in this bundle, visit the product description page at www.outskirtspress.com/ebookpackage.

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.

Virtual Reality in the Hardcopy World

When new authors first begin to contemplate self-publishing a book, visions of that thick, solid, hardcover volume must surely dance in their heads. Nothing beats the sensation of holding your first book in your hands and cracking the crisp pages for the first time. But it’s important for authors in this modern book publishing climate to remember the vital role ebooks play in the success of the book.

There are a few very compelling reasons you may wish to start with an ebook and then work your way to a hardcopy edition.

  • It’s easier. Designing and formatting for the electronic format is easier than designing and formatting a hardcopy book. So, formatting your ebook is an excellent way to get your feet wet before diving into the hard copy.
  • It’s quicker. Publishers can make an ebook available to consumers in a virtual instant, via electronic upload, compared to physical books, which must be ordered, set for print, produced and distributed before being put up for sale.
  • It’s an easier sell. Ebooks are far less expensive to produce than hardcopy editions, so can be priced lower. If your hard copy is priced at $13.99, the ability to also offer an ebook for $4.99 to millions of Kindle, Nook and iPad users is a priceless advantage in a highly competitive marketplace.

If you currently have a hardcopy book for sale, converting it to an ebook format is a simple and cost-effective proposition — and one that could provide a much needed boost in visibility and sales!

Save 20% on your iPad e-book edition

The “New” 4G iPad (iPad 3) went on sale recently and Apple announced that it had a “record weekend” in terms of units sold. What does that mean? Well, it is estimated that the original iPad sold about 300,000 units over its opening weekend, and over one million in the first month. Then, when the iPad 2 was unveiled, business analysts estimated that Apple sold one million iPad 2s on its launch weekend.

So for Apple to have a “record weekend” for the iPad 3, that means even more than one million new units were sold in its first weekend. Though we may never know specific numbers, sales of the new iPad were high enough for Apple to announce a first-ever stock dividend for investors.

Imagine leveraging all that press, all those iPads units, and all those readers into more readers for YOUR book…
