Why and How you Digitize your Books

Are you interested in making your book into an eBook, but not sure if it is worth the trouble? Books are wonderful, timeless, and magical, but more and more new and independent authors are selling books online. Did you know the blockbuster movie “The Martian” was originally a self-published book that was discovered online? The majority of Fifty Shades of Grey sales came from eBooks – they sold more than 1 million eBooks through Amazon alone. That set an Amazon record all because they digitized their book.

More and more authors are gaining recognition and boosting sales with eBooks. Making your books available to the digital world is vital to increasing exposure and building an audience base.

Another reason to add eBooks to your arsenal is the lack of overhead costs. Think about it — you pay for a one-time conversion, and that’s it. No buying boxes of books that sit in your garage forever. One file fits all — eBooks have an infinite download capacity. Bookstores have to keep their stock rotating and will only shelf your book for a certain period of time, but an eBook will be available on the online stores for as long as you want. You choose the price, the look, the vendor — essentially, everything.

Not only does an eBook give a wider audience access to your story, but it gives it to them immediately. Your readers won’t have to wait weeks to get a copy in the mail or for their local bookstore to get a shipment. If your audience loved your first book, they can buy and read your next the second it’s available. It keeps them captivated and the lower price points make it more affordable for them as well.
