Publishing a Kindle book, and then a paperback too

Thousands of people have published their own Kindle books and then blogged about the process. I decided to do the same. But this is in no way a definitive guide. It’s just a list of bits of information I picked up along the way and thought ‘that’s useful, I wish I’d known it before’. I’ve added on some notes about a later decision to produce a print-on-demand paperback too.

This is the book I’m discussing – Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age: how to feel better without logging off.

Some parts of the process of publishing a Kindle are surprisingly unintuitive, whilst other parts are easier than you think. But at the start you can only know what you know.

OUT NOW Paperback edition of ‘Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age’

When I published the Kindle edition of ‘Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age, I was quite surprised to find that lots of people I know don’t read e-books at all. They asked for a paperback version and I didn’t have one. But now I do. ┬áIt’s on sale at Amazon from today, so if you prefer paperbacks to e-books, now you can get one!

Is the paperback different from the e-book?

Just a tiny bit – the paperback includes a few images which were difficult to incorporate into the e-book. I’ve updated the structure and cover to match the paperback, so if you own an older copy of the e-book you’ll notice some changes to the way the content is organised, and some of the headings have changed, but basically it’s pretty much the same.

Join me in Facebook to discuss your own experiments and ideas on how we can feel better without logging off. There’s a lot to talk about!

 

For the un-Kindled – a free preview of ‘Nature and Wellbeing in the Digital Age’, no Kindle required

Amazon’s latest clever idea is the Instant Preview. It lets you dip into a Kindle book without having to install a Reader.

I admit I’ve been surprised at how many of my friends and acquaintances don’t read Kindle books. I just assumed everyone did these days! Anyway, as a result I will be producing a print edition later this year, but for now, if you are un-Kindled, please enjoy this Instant Preview.
