Success Is Subjective When It Comes to EBooking the Author of the Article Explained

June 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 218

Most folks who write books or eBooks want to be successful, but therein lies the problem, what does success mean in this venue? Some folks want to get the word out, or make statement, so they want the most people to read the book or eBook. Still others want to sell the most copies, and some just want to make the most money. Then there is the group of authors who just want to see their name in print, thus, there is a whole industry subsector called; vanity publishing. Got a bunch of recipes, some self-help advice, or want to tell your story - well there you go.

Okay so, the other day I reading an interesting article about how to write a successful eBook which suggested that "success is all what you make of it," or what you decide that to be. Incidentally, I too concur that "successful" is subjective in the eBook arena, in fact today, I was discussing this with a salesman for iUniverse and he enlighten me to the fact that they have 22,000 booksellers they deal with which are using many different formats, each of whom needs the eBook manuscripts submitted in their preferred format.

Yes, different formats, and since iUniverse was able to cater to all these formats and was capable of crossing those differences, which is somewhat a different theory than their competition or the contract company working for Amazon, again, I have not verified that but imagine that some of iUniverse's clients purposely using different formats because they want to differentiate and avoid Amazon's competition, offering unique titles that Amazon doesn't carry.

Thus, I found that interesting and that the salesman's definition of success was using a format that could be read by anyone across all types of eReaders but also for print-on-demand retailers which is common now, eBooking is an interesting topic and success in this venue equally so. Indeed, I hadn't really considered that aspect until I had read the article explaining how author's deem their works to be successful - or not, based on their needs, wants, and desires.

Therefore, let me ask my reader something; what do you believe would make you happy or feel successful with your eBook? Perhaps you better think about that before you spend the time to write it, hire a service to market it, or decide how you wish to sell that eBook, as it could very well make the difference in that ellusive feeling of success once you publish it. Please consider all this and think on it.
