You've probably heard that e-books get a bigger share of the book market every day. In fact, e-book sales have put millions of dollars in the hands of previously unpublished authors, midlist authors who've had modest print sales, and established authors who've decided to strike out on their own. Did you know that when you publish your own e-book, you can earn up to 10 times higher royalties? In this first lesson, you'll meet some successful trailblazers in the e-book industry, find out which e-book genres sell best, discover how much money you can make publishing your own e-books, and explore the difference between fixed, reflowable, and responsive format e-books. This lesson will help you plan your exciting future as an independent e-book publisher.
