A cheaper alternative of ‘For Dummies’ Series

23 Mar

No Dummies Series

Have you ever read the ‘For dummies’ book series?

I read it quite often, especially when I want to learn something new. It covers a lot of topics.

However, the books are quite expensive, and it took a lot of time to read one.

Therefore, I want to make something change.

Last year I have started an ebook series, which is named as ’24 Hours Learning Series’. The book series includes ebooks which is aimed to teach readers some topics within 24 hours. Topics includes Traditional Chinese Medicine, Online income, and more are coming.

What is ’24 Hours Learning Series’?
’24 Hours Learning Series’ is an ebook series which includes topics from different areas, such as online blogging, alternative healing methods, and more.

The aim of developing this ebook series, is to provide a way which let readers to improve their knowledge coverage in a short period of time, which is 24 hours, and through a cheap way.

Teenagers in my country have quite a boring life. They spend half a day for school, and go back home for computer games at night. Adults’ life sucks too, as there are no maximum limit of working hours, they spend whole they just to work. If you asked them what are your interests or hobbies, they just don’t know.

Therefore, I would like to develope a series of books which let people learn a specific topic in 24 hours. Even though they didn’t have a very deep understanding on the topic of reading the books, they can still get the basic knowledge and have a chance to feel if this is their interest.

Also, to let people read learn about more topics, all the books ar sold in very low prices, from USD 0.99 -2.99. I hope these can benifit to some people, at least in my country.

Pavement is dead

16 Feb

Refer to my previous post, in order to extend and find more channels to get my ebooks to more readers, I have tried to do some e-commerce things to start a storefront in facebook, which is , using pavement.

Unfortunately, I received a mail from Pavement few days ago and it announced that Pavement will be closed. Instead, a new e-commerce company is created for users like me to continue my selling. You may refer to the details as below:

Kobo Writing Life: Congrats – You’ve sold a book!‏

14 Feb

Yesterday I received an email from Kobo, with a big and surprising message as below:

sale

I have published my ebook to Kobo about a month ago, but since there are not much good news from the site, I have already given up and stop checking the Kobo selling status for long. Therefore, it was quite surprising that I’ve gotten a sale through Kobo.

Although this is just one book sale, but this really cheer me up and I think I should start concentrate on book publishing again!

E-book pricing

19 Jan

Making Book

Jeremy commented on the post Future book printing raising the question of e-book pricing.

I think we pretty much all believe at the moment that e-book revenue is additional to print revenue. Of course customers may stop supporting the printed book, and when they do we will have the problem Jeremy raises of amortizing our origination costs over sales of the e-book only. Even in today’s half-formed e-book world I think the problem is less than Jeremy fears. Most people who comment and agonize about e-book pricing are writing from the perspective of book buyers not book publishers. See for instance this article from Forbes on 14 January. There’s a lot of noise in these sorts of analyses created by self-published books — a boom industry now that it’s so easy to put your book out there in electronic form. The economics of self-publishing and regular publishing are wildly different…

5 Reasons To Consider Self-Publishing

17 Jan

Reject Rejection is a good idea:D

1. Reject rejection
In the traditional publishing world, there’s a gauntlet of people standing in the way of making your publishing dreams happen, and rejection from anyone of them along the way can table your manuscript. Traditional publishers tend to gamble on works similar to what’s hot right now such as Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series or E.L. James’ BDSM erotica. If you fall out of this scope, self publishing gives you a chance to let the marketplace rather than gatekeepers from traditional publishers decide on your success.

2. It’s all about the money
Authors keep more of the profit with no middlemen like agents and publishing houses taking their cut. It’s not uncommon for authors to receive only 25-40 percent in royalties on their ebooks and print books from traditional publishers. Let’s say your ebook costs $6. After Amazon takes 30 percent, let’s say you…
