Trish Silver: Authors Supporting Authors Tour Stop
I have a lot of really good book promotion ideas on my site. Here is one of them that I thought I would talk about today. There is a site that converts books into e-books then sells them on the site. They give the authors 80% of the royalties. But that is not all, they also have a premium catalog that goes all over the world to the biggest book sellers. They just signed a contract with Apple for the IPAD. They also convert to Sony, kindle etc. The author gets 65% of the royalties when they are sold from the catalog.
All the above is free to the author. However, in order to be accepted by the premium catalog, your book must be formatted perfectly. They will only accept word files. They have a free style guide for the author's to download and follow. It is a lot of work. I am lucky that I have a virtual assistant, Janis Friesler that did the formatting for me. She will do it for others too. I think this is an ideal situation for an author that wants to revive some books that they have written in the recent past.
Thanks for having me as a guest on your blog,
Author of When I Remember Love
