Kindle Direct Publishing for Absolute Beginners by Sally Jenkins.
I think this new book will sell very well, as it covers so many essential elements of the publishing to Kindle process.
You can read about how this new book came about on Sally's blog here.
This e-book doesn't cover formatting in detail- there is an e-book that covers that aspect that Sally recommends.
Her book goes into all those other essential areas that you need to understand and use, from the pre-publishing stage- what you need to consider and check for before you begin formatting, to the options for cover design, and more.
You will find out about the thorny issues of pricing, royalties and tax- the latter has always seemed to be the most confusing issue for UK writers who have sales in the US (30% withholding tax, and the US Tax identification number- and how to get one).
Then after your e-book is loaded and on sale, important issues like keywords, getting reviews and keeping track.
I've only been able to have a quick scan through my copy- I bought it last night, £1.53 on Amazon's UK site but the parts I have read for compiling this blog post, have convinced me.
I like the straightforward manner in the way each aspect of the process is addressed, and even those elements that always seemed quite unnerving are no longer scary, or headache inducing.
This e-book is a purchase you will not regret making.
