Engineers are idea people, and many of them have books, papers, manuals, and other written materials that deserve to be published - and to make money. There are new opportunities in e-publishing that enable authors of any kind to publish, find their audience, and make a profit, with a very low cost of entry.
Many services charge hundreds of dollars to prepare e-books for print. In this seminar, the ease and speed of e-publishing is demonstrated, including a live demo of publishing on Amazon.
Topics covered in this seminar include:
- Pros and cons of e-publishing compared to traditional publishing
- Major e-publishing platforms, and how to access them
- Formatting manuscripts for e-publishing
- Tricks of pricing on the major platforms
- Cover design and other means of making yourself visible to your audience
