Would you like to earn some money with your writing skills?

Publishing from home via Amazon or Smashwords can prove to be more cost effective and lucrative than publishing through a traditional publisher, who can limit your control over your book covers, your rights to your book, and even fail to make edits to already-published editions when your readers notify you of mistakes.

Royalties from self-publishing via Amazon are 70% versus the < 15% from traditional publishing. You set the price of your own books. You can choose to give specials to your dedicated fans. No printing. No postage.

These days, self-publishing is more about control over your own literary property.

With that responsibility comes the added pressure of doing your own marketing. This group is for people who are in this dilemma.

NEW Category: KINDLE SINGLE. Any Topic, 5000 word minimum. Aprox 20 pages.

Fiction and non-fiction writers are welcome. All that is required is an entrepreneurial spirit.

Wednesday Night Discussions at the Family Pancake House focus on the technology; the formatting, delivery and marketing of eBooks; rather than the craft of writing. Previous computer knowledge will be very useful, but we are open to teaching newbies. Skills required include being able to edit document text or HTML files. We also discuss file management, and the concepts of uploading and downloading. There are also many cloud and sync-ing options available now for free (ex. Dropbox).

This group allows us to not only benefit from the knowledge and feedback of all group members. The object of this group is to help each other get through the intricacies of putting your eBooks on the market.

====================================================

Of note: Saturdays in Silverdale are a writing critique group which was created by another organizer. I post their schedule here for those who are looking for helpful feedback on their writing, and have questions about the craft of writing.
