Review

"This book is not only the best ebook handbook I've ever read, it is one of the best publishing guides I've come across in 30 years. Everything you need to know is covered in clear, concise detail, with examples and recommendations. Bravo, David Wogahn!" —Karla Olson, Director of Patagonia Books and President, Publishers and Writers of San Diego

“This comprehensive collection of valuable information and step-by-step instructions, from creation to promotion, should be on every writer’s desk or ereader.” —Cheryl Kaye Tardif, bestselling author of How I Made Over $42,000 Selling My Kindle eBooks

"Yes, we are all publishers today...we can all create and develop content and deliver that content to our customers and prospects. The problem? It's not easy. The great news here is that David has created a how-to manual that can be your bible for creating and distributing ebooks directly to your audience. Thanks David!" —Joe Pulizzi, Founder, Content Marketing Institute

“Publishing on Amazon Kindle can be deceptively complex. There are pitfalls and opportunities that may be just out of reach. David Wogahn knows his subject and knows how to communicate the information in a clear, concise, and organized way.” —Gary Young, President, Publishers Association of Los Angeles and Director of Professional Development, Independent Writers of Southern California

“David offers a carefully constructed guide to eBook publishing that combines traditional and Internet-age techniques.” —Morris Rosenthal, author, Print-on-Demand Book Publishing and Publisher, Foner Books

Publishing a book has never been easier and more to the point the number of people involved in the process is now at the bare minimum with no editors making demands you may think unreasonable or wanting to make changes that you are not totally satisfied with in order to publish.

If you are considering writing an eBook to publish for sale or just to distribute for free then I would suggest you have a read of this quite excellent book. 42 topics spread across 7 logical sections have been amassed to provide just about everything you need or could want to know about writing, publishing and marketing your own eBook and everything before, during and after these particular processes. Comprehensive is the one word I would use to describe it. I have seen other publications on the same theme that have half or less of the content on offer here. It could be argues there is too much information but I do not share that opinion.

Do you have to be all knowledgeable about book publishing before reading it? No.
Do you have to have thorough and in depth knowledge about computers? No

However, it may still fall in to a band where some people might struggle to make sense of it all as it is quite in depth. Having said that, if you have a little prior knowledge then most, if not all should make sense and get you on your way.

One aspect that I found well explained was on the topic of the cover design, an aspect often overlooked by the aspiring author. I don't want to over-emphasize this section above any of the others but I would draw your attention to it and provides some very useful ideas that you may not think about yourself.

For authors outside of the UK, note the copyright information in section 2, it is provided for US authors only. You will need to find the appropriate details for your country but the principles still apply and something you need to consider.

Successful eBook Publishing by David Wogahn was an excellent read! I was impressed by the knowledge he displayed, and he was very thorough in explaining the entire process, from having the initial manuscript to pre-publishing to marketing your ebook.

I found it very helpful for him to start with the basics, such as actually explaining what an ebook is, and the devices ebooks can be used on. This part of the tutorial alone would be very valuable to people just starting to delve into ebooks. I have found that, even in today's world, not everyone knows the "simple" technological things that many of us do. Mr. Wogahn did a fantastic job explaining the importance of layout: the design, format, book covers, etc., while maintaining the fact that even if your book is destined to be an ebook, there are still options if you want to have it printed in paperback/hardcover later on.

The author's section on actually creating your ebook was simply invaluable. I think that this would be the most challenging part of publishing a book (for me), and he presented it wonderfully. File conversion, layout, formatting and design are crucial components for getting it "right" and making an ebook pleasing to the eye, and easy to read. He also did a great job showing the importance of marketing. He makes very good points in this; writing an ebook does no good unless you know how to distribute and market it!

I appreciated the content in this book, because I have often thought, "I could write a book!" This book gives me a place to start, and ideas for what to do when I get stuck! Thanks, Mr. Wogahn!

I'm no professional author. Just like to write a little here and there but do plan to bring out a book of my own somewhere down the line. And this whole e-publishing thing always puzzled me.

What took so long and so much effort in publishing, copying, printing, and logistics in the past can now all be done online. But it does have its own caveats. And just doing it is not equal to doing it right. That was a concern for me looking at a future where my work would be published.

This book is like a breath of fresh air. Not only does it do a fine job of guiding you through every aspect of Ebook publishing but also shows you the best ways of doing each step. It encompasses every single thing from the A to the Z of Ebook publishing, and does so in a language that is so easy to follow.

Guide books are many but books that show you the way and let you carry on with confidence are far and few. And this is one such book. I know it's not easy to write this sort of a guide but the author has done a wonderful job of going where few guide book authors can.

I was impressed by the simple ways in which steps and things are explained here. And if you are looking at having your own work published in this new world of electronic books then this should be your go-to guide.

I respect David Woghan's decision regarding the title of his book, however I believe that modesty is preventing him from calling it what it really is. The Bible for eBook Publishing.

Here's why I feel this book is a must read for anyone involved in publishing/self publishing and eBook publishing:
1. David has been able to synthesize the experience of thousands into condensed, important and easy-to-read information.
2. The writing is very clear, concise and easy to follow.
3. The book covers everything you'll need to know from how to order ISBN numbers to the best way to format the eBook so that it looks the way its intended to on eReaders.
4. Priced for the approximate cost of a Venti Latte, this book will help educate and energize authors on precisely how, when and why they should ePublish their work.
5. As a resource guide, this book is one to keep handy. With links and descriptions to all the major resources in the industry, this book is a must have for any 21st century writer.

Whether you're just investigating the ongoing eBook revolution, or have a book ready to post for online sales, this book will provide the information you need.

[Disclosure: I've known David personally for years and was given an early edition copy of this book to proofread. I did however purchase my own copy in print.]
