By self-publishing an e-book, you’ll reach an ever-growing number of people using e-readers. The Write Place can make your e-book available for reading on a wide variety of devices, including the Kindle, the NOOK, and the iPad. Your e-book will be available for sale through,, Apple Books, and many other small retailers. As with our print books, the author sets the retail price for his or her e-book.

How can I make my e-book available to the widest readership?
To make sure the widest number of people on the widest number of devices can read your e-book, we coordinate conversion of your book to EPUB and .mobi file formats. The .mobi format is used by the Amazon Kindle; EPUB is used by almost everyone else.

How much does it cost to publish an e-book?
Costs vary based upon the length and complexity (whether you have pictures, tables, endnotes, etc.) of your book. The Write Place will provide an individual quote for each e-book project.

How does the price for my e-book get set?
That’s one of the great things about self-publishing—the author sets the price. You want to make the price high enough so that you still make money after the retailer discounts, but low enough to not be cost-prohibitive to customers. We can help you find this balance.

Will my e-book look like the printed book?
The design options for e-books are more limited, so in most cases an e-book will look different. In general, the e-book will have a much simpler and more streamlined design.

Where can readers buy my e-book?
Your e-book will be available through Amazon (Kindle), Barnes & Noble (NOOK), Apple Books (iPad and iPhone), and many other smaller retailers.

How do I get started self-publishing my e-book?
All we need is your manuscript in a simple format like Word. From there, we can work through editing if you desire, cover design, and the conversion process. Call 641-628-8398 or email for more information.
