We are LIVE on Kindle! It was a long journey but now we are there. Enjoy, folks!
Kobo, Scribd and iTunes are first out of the gate! This is the most fun part of the whole process. To see your efforts turn into a self-published work available to the world for purchase. It was always a dream of mine through the years but print had innumerable hurdles and costs and even then you weren't getting all the money. Hardly any of it to be exact. That is all changed now.
#Ebook 3 is done! I have two more in line to produce of mine and perhaps one for a NYer cartoonist. Updates later. Now to start the delivery process. Write book descriptions, register ISBN, create text file of book and a pdf for Bowker, sign up book with aggregator... I guess the work goes on.
Folks ask me what's involved in doing a cartoon #ebook. I have a quote form now for that which lays out what I do and how much it costs for accepted clients. Fun-E-Books Publishing.com
I have all the chapters with cartoons laid out and ready to start an InDesign book file. That's where you bring the chapters together and start creating the book as a whole. I have the Intro or Outro as I will call it to do. (placing front matter like an introduction at the back allows Kindle's preview on Amazon the most toons previewed with their 10% amount of the book you can look at)
Also an About chapter with some bio stuff and of course the required muskie fish fotos of me. I can stick as much stuff into an ebook as I wish and it won't cost anymore for me or the reader. More content means more value too. I am still juggling in my mind what I should make the price. $3.99 will sell lots of copies. $4.99 too much? The book will have 222 cartoons plus the other stuff. Tell me your thoughts people!
Book one in the "Cartoons That Will ... etc ..." series is now offered by 15 sellers. Amazon is far and away the top seller but it never hurts to have more.
