The to stay!

I have been toying with the idea of publishing my books in ebook format. Seeing as though that ebook revolution is seemingly here to stay and it seems, eventually may override print sales in the years to come... I guess I should stop toying around with the idea and just take that leap! According to some current statistics that I've viewed, ebook sales are growing at a very rapid rate, with no signs of slowing down! Most of my friends and collegues do purchase ebooks as well as hard copy, but I have found that most seem to be leaning more towards the digital format.

There are a few authors that have had major success with nothing but ebooks. Amanda Hocking  for example,  is a great place to start. I came across her while doing a little research for one of my marketing classes. Of course, since I am a writer, all that I talk about, read about and think about is what??? writing! :)  I was thrilled and excited to see that she, like myself, started out self publishing and did things on her own terms and was/is very successful with it. It takes a klot of work as I'm sure Ms. Amanda (or anyone else) can attest to, but the challenge is always welcomed, fun, and tiring at the same time.


  1. I think that ebook would be a good move. I see people download and read them all the time. For one they aren't that expensive, and also they have all of these new readers that everyone is getting. So then I guess you would just have to decide which format you want to provide for, if not all. Nook, e-reader, ibook, kindle, pc, mac, etc.. I don't know what's all involved in them all, but I think it would be a good move.

  2. Yes...I have almost if not all the formats available...if you go to they are all there and ready to be dowloaded...I will put a link on all of my pages so they are easily accessible.
