A lot of writers are curious about the rise of e-books and how they can make money off new e-book opportunities. Between all the new e-readers and the sharp increases in e-book sales, these curiosities are well founded. That’s why our e-Media guru, Jane Friedman, is teaching a new webinar called “Do Your E-Book Right (and Start Making Money)” on Feb. 24, 2011.
The webinar is called “Do Your E-Book Right (and Start Making Money),” and will be held at 1 p.m., EST, Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011, and lasts 90 minutes. Every registration comes with access to the archived recording, so you do not need to attend the live event to see the presentation.
This is a 90-minute intensive tutorial regarding everything you need to get started in e-publishing your work. The industry has exploded with new and free opportunities to help you publish your work electronically, at little or no cost to you. Learn how to get visibility for your work by using online services that make your work available on major e-reading platforms such as Kindle, Nook, and iPad. You’ll get a tour of how these sites work and how writers are using them to move their career forward. While e-publishing doesn’t equal instant success (if you build it, they may NOT come), you’ll learn the principles behind the successful creation and distribution of an e-book. Sign up here!
