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 Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, 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 sarah@thewriteplace.biz for more information.
