Baen Ebooks
In January of 2011 we started posting free short stories we thought might be of interest to Baen readers. The first stories were "Space Hero" by Patrick Lundrigan, the winner of the 2010 Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Contest, and "Tanya, Princess of Elves," by Larry Correia, author of Monster Hunter International and set in that universe. As new stories are made available, they will be posted on the main page, then added to this book (to save the Baen Barflies the trouble of doing it themselves). This is our compilation of short stories for 2019. As is usual with such copyrighted material from Baen, the contents may be copied and shared but NOT sold. All commercial rights are reserved to Baen Books. The Testimony of the Traitor Ratul by Larry CorreiaToday I Remember by Martin L.

15 More Apps To Create Books On The iPad Creating books on the iPad doesn’t seem like the first thing you might do with one of the popular little tablets, but it’s really quite capable of doing so provided you’re not trying to write the next great novel. We’ve written about 3 apps to reate books on the iPad in the past, but the following listly by Meg Wilson goes further, including 15 apps to do so. The artful collision of technology, learning, and literacy is an idea promoted in the Common Core Standards, which is likely your rule book if you teach K-12 in an American public school. This is a new age of literacy where students can read, research, write, publish, and socialize on the same device sitting right in their lap with a pinch-and-zoom elegance that somehow makes the whole process seem easier than it really is.

Read Books Online Free - Romance Novels Online » Writers as Rock Stars: Introducing Liner Notes, a Music Column for Writers Recently, I went to Terminal 5, a music venue here in NYC, to see UK singer Lianne La Havas perform live. I stood behind my diminutive partner while we watched roadies set up the sound for Lianne. I swayed from the Maker’s Mark I had ingested, which then combined with the two beers I consumed earlier at dinner. Twenty minutes later, Lianne took the stage. Or rather, as the audience eager to hear her voice, we relinquished the stage to her. As she performed—singing pitch perfect notes while playing lead guitar—I remembered why I enjoy LIT, my reading series in Brooklyn.

How to Format Your Self-Published Book How to Format Your Self-Published Book by Moira Allen Return to DIY Publishing · Print/Mobile-Friendly Version As children, we were advised, "Don't judge a book by its cover!" Yet this is precisely what we do in nearly every area of life --especially when it comes to books! If you're contemplating self-publishing--whether via a print-on-demand or traditional printer--it's vital to keep that in mind.

Book Cover Success and Failure Explained Not that long ago I was asked to create a presentation that would help authors when it came time to design a book cover. I know that there are lots of do-it-yourselfers who are self-publishers, and there are also authors who are buying services from professionals. I wanted to create a presentation that would give both kinds of authors useful information. Since I’ve been judging book covers for a long time (and hundreds more in the monthly Ebook Cover Design Awards) I know how difficult it can be for an author to see her book cover objectively. Especially for first-time authors, it can be a real and difficult challenge to step back and try to see your book cover as a selling vehicle for your book, and not as an extension of your own identity. Your Book Cover Has a Job to Do (or Maybe 5)

How to Publish an Ebook on Amazon Self-publishing through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform is quick and easy. I thought it might be helpful to write a quick walk-through to take new users through the publishing process one step at a time using screenshots. In order to get started, simply follow this link to the Kindle Direct Publishing site, sign on with your amazon account, or create a new account. When you first sign in, you will be looking at your Kindle Bookshelf. Until you begin adding books, your Bookshelf will be empty. Here is an example of my Bookshelf with my first three books already published. How to Improve Your Description Copy to Sell More Ebooks Your book description on retailer sites like Amazon is one of the most important ebook marketing elements at your disposal. Your cover and title will catch potential readers’ attention, but your description is what will make the sale. The strongest part of your description should be the first 150 words. But what can you do to pack a bigger punch into such a small space? At BookBub, we often run split A/B tests to see what blurb copy resonates most with our subscribers.

Take pride in your eBook formatting - Guido Henkel: Guido Henkel To me, one of the key elements that sets apart a professional eBook release from that of an amateur has always been the technical presentation of the book. Sure, anyone can write a document in a word processor, run it through some export tool, use a fully automated conversion utility or peruse the services of an online service, but the sad fact of the matter is that none of these approaches typically results in, what I call, production-level digital books. So, why are people using them? I have spent a lot of time thinking about this and observing how other authors approach their eBook publishing, and the more I examined it, the more I have noticed that there are generally two reasons for it.
