During the course of the past three years, we have answered thousands of questions for people wanting to know more about the process of creating and distributing an eBook. Our email and telephone conversations with authors and publishers cover a huge variety of queries. This is still a relatively new world for many independent authors, and while there are countless resources, sometimes you just want to speak to someone who can answer your specific questions!
We are delighted to announce the first of a series of half-day workshops for authors, publishers and anyone else who is interested in eBook conversion, and distribution. If you want to convert your manuscript to eBook, or you would like to find out about the whole process before making a decision about conversion, please do come along.
eBook Partnership provides services to authors and publishers, but we speak to many people who would like to convert their own work to eBook file formats, and handle distribution to Amazon for example. This workshop will be extremely helpful for anyone who would like to manage this process.
Making sure that your eBook is widely available is a key objective. You need to know exactly what your options are before committing to Smashwords, or Amazon KDP Select. These are both perfectly good platforms for authors, but you may want more control over sales and a wider reach for your eBook.
The final section of our Workshop will be a Q&A session. We will answer your questions and share our knowledge and experience – gained during the course of working on over 500 eBook projects since 2010.
