For aspiring authors everywhere, the concept of having a hardback print has long been changing into the next generation of text communication. The ebook is not particularly a new concept, but it has become one of the best methods to reach more markets than standard print can alone. Kindle is one of the major publishers of ebooks today and the following are some helpful tips for publishing a Kindle Ebook successfully.
Proofread until it hurts, one major rejection cause is poor grammar and spelling errors.
Before you even think of submitting a kindle ebook for publishing be sure it is grammatically perfect. Sloppy or rushed write up and rough drafts do not make the cut. Your work should be free of both grammatical and typographical errors. Not only will publishers reject poorly edited content, but readers will quickly cast negative ratings. You work should not only be reflection of what the subject is, but also a reflection of your own personal abilities and talents. Using proper editing can help you put your best foot forward.
Make it appealing through compelling artwork and an enticing description for the book.
It does not have to be a picture book, but the cover artwork will be a major factor in what catches the browser’s attention. Create a clear, colorful and engaging image that looks beautiful in full size and thumbnail. For those who do not catch any advertising for the book, this can be the point where you make up for your lack of reach by drawing reader’s eyes to the piece. When readers browse titles in a book store or library, they will flip the book over or look in the cover for a synopsis of what the book is about. Your description is your synopsis. Aside from being grammatically clean, it needs to be engaging and just informative enough to entice readers to want to buy it and get the whole story. If its a fiction piece, don’t give away the story, but do use a general description so its clear if it is going to be a tantalizing romance novel or an intense mystery thriller with twists an turns. This is also another vital part of making an ebook as this is the most influential part that can sell or sink a book.
Get feedback and make it available in print as well as digital, and introduce yourself.
Before you get it fully published on Kindle, you should share it with friends, family, and any followers you may already have as a writer online. Invite them to share their thoughts and opinions and the review the ebook on Kindle when it is released. Having glowing and honest reviews from the start can really help to launch and sell the ebook. When it getting ready to be published through Kindle, it is also a good idea to line up a print supplier as well, such as CreateSpace. There are still a lot of readers out there who may browse Kindle to find new titles but still prefer to have hard copies or simple don’t have a kindle to view the ebook on. This allows your ebook to reach a wider market of readers and does not limit you to strictly digital media. Though aside from getting feedback and broadening your availability, it is also important to create an authors page. Being reachable by readers is one way to help grow your status as writer. Connecting through social media is also advisable to help promote and connect with readers, as well as find potential fans of your work.
