Has anyone online published a novel via ebook? If so, did you use your own site or another site. How did you advertise your novel? What were your sales results? (not specific number, just general info) Any mistakes you made or something you should have done?
Stephen King not only published an ebook online... He published the most successful ebook the net has ever seen. His ebook release was one of the most highly anticipated book releases of all time. many people doubted it's success. However, the ebook ended up being the MOST SUCCESSFUL book (not ebook) launch to date. Mind you some sites gave away the book for free and sites such as Amazon charged only a small fee for it. Nonetheless it goes to show that people are interested and will purchase ebooks online.
I'm considering publishing my first ebook on Lulu.com for FREE. You can add on other services if you want, but I haven't done that yet. So far I've had a few hits to my site but I am constantly tweaking it--probably should just leave the thing alone for awhile and give it a chance!
Storyman is right dude. « In short, keep experiementing and go with the flow » and to add to it Sell your book to the ones wo are the closest to you, then locally, then by regions and Internationally will come by itself.
I can sell ebooks to blind people if I can write it in the Blind Language!
I am pretty sure I sell and distribute more ebooks than everyone here in this forum put together... Like the man said (Storyman) use your brain. If you do Poetry don't aim your marketing to construction workers...
Zeb who still very well think that the E-Book Compiler is the best invention after the light bulb (well just try to write a book without light, dude ;o)
