From Print to E-Reader

The Write Place can assist in making your self-published e-book available on a wide range of devices, including the Kindle, the NOOK, and the iPad. Your e-book will be available for purchase on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Apple Books, and many other small retail sites. As with our print books, the author sets the retail price for their 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 on the length and complexity of your book (whether you have pictures, tables, endnotes, etc.). The Write Place will provide an individual quote for each e-book project.

How does the price of my e-book get set?

That’s one of the great things about self-publishing—the author sets the price. You’ll want the price to be high enough that you still make money after retailer discounts, but low enough to not be cost-prohibitive to customers. We can help you find that 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 Microsoft Word. From there, we can work through editing, cover design, and the conversion process. Call 641.628.8398 or email sarah@thewriteplace.biz for more information.
