Because of self ebook publishing, writing careers have taken a new turn in the book publishing industry. The simple truth is that Amazon book sales really took off with the discovery of Kindle, Amazon's everywhere digital reader.
There is an insatiable appetite for eBooks published for the Kindle Reader and so the publishing industry was turned on its head. This has opened up a new writing career field, eBook authors.
Look at a list of ebook authors and you can see that a ebook distribution service that helps process self published works.
You see, you can market a self published ebook very easily just like the many aspiring ebook authors, people just like you and me, who finally went from aspiring internet writer to self published author.
Self ebook publishing seems to be of interest to many who aspire to be authors. Think of this as valuable writer career information, enabling us to not just write a book, but write an ebook!
You see, I am totally convinced that each one of us has a story to tell, and therefore, a book to write. or in keeping with self ebook publishing advice, an ebook to write.
I am amazed at the number of people I have talked to recently who told me they had a book they are working on or knew someone with a "half finished book" or a "concept for a book".
For example, take a look at these potential ebook self-publishers and even the titles I've given the eBooks they might write:
Principles of Funding World Missions
My brother-in-law has loads of material about his career as a missionary to Bolivia. Just putting his emails into a Christian ebook would be exciting reading!
I mentioned a good way to do so would be self ebook publishing, and even offered to help him market it on the internet.
Survival Tactics In My Social Worker Career
Before retiring from my career as a hospice chaplain, I was sharing with one of our social workers this concept about writing ebooks. He told me he had an unfinished screen play he had been working on for years.
I would read any ebook he wrote, because of his vast knowledge from his many years as a social worker. He is a walking encyclopedia using the social work information he has to author a book.
I don't think the screenplay has anything to do with being a social worker so the truth is he could write ebooks on both subjects.
Staying Power When Others are Leaving the Ministry
One day, my wife mentioned that a co-worker's husband has story upon story to share about ministry to the urban center, where he has pastored a small, inner city church for over 25 years.
He has expressed interest in writing ebooks and the process of self publishing ebooks would be a perfect book publishing strategy for him to follow.
Sharing Life Lessons
We visited with my wife's aunt a few weeks back. She has written a small book sharing her life. She has paid far more than she should have to have it published using the traditional approach, even though it is a small book.
Yet people continue asking for it and she can't keep enough published, because of the cost. I told her there is another way -- self ebook publishing.
Dynamic Principles of Early Childhood Learning
One day as my wife and I had our traditional Saturday morning breakfast, we enjoyed one of those what's-going-on-in-your-life chats, I told her about self ebook publishing.
She could see all kinds of ebook topic possibilities from her years as a kindergarten teacher, musician, school administrator, and pastor's wife.
In fact she and the academic Director of Point Loma Early Childhood Learning Center were chosen to conduct a workshop at a early childhood education convention. I suggested they take the same information shared at that conference and re-purpose it into a Kindle eBook.
Their Early Childhood Learning Workshop was so successful, they have their sights on presenting at the national early childhood education convention. I have encouraged her to launch a an early childhood education website from which to share their early learning concepts with attendees seeking additional early childhood teaching tools. It would be a simple matter to publish an ebook on preschool teaching tips, self-publishing the content of the courses they teach at the college level.
My wife is also a women's retreat speaker who shares openly her faith story, telling of the years of suffering from depression and how she overcame depression with God's help.
Her personal history with depression would be a powerful ebook on how to be an over-comer in the areas of anxiety, depression, childhood grief, and perfectionism.
There are so many self proclaimed ebook experts but I wanted to hear from someone who had actually written an ebook AND was willing to show me exactly how I could do the same.
If you want to know how to write, publish and market your own book or ebook online, there are several resources that will launch your self-publishing career.
