In the publishing market most of us realize that e-books are outselling print books. The truth is that Amazon’s Kindle leads the markets by leaps and bounds over all other venues of sales. Apple I-books and Nook are in the market, but Amazon Kindle still leads the way. Then one must ask the ultimate question when publishing, do I even take up with traditional book publishing.
The truth is that thousands of books are released through e-book sales. I have been studying for over four years, as I prepared for my first book release. I debated about going with the simple and easy route of simply signing up for Kindle Select. Then my book would be in the biggest market. However, I have chosen to release the book in paper format too. The reason that I have done this is that I personally know many avid readers, most of whom prefer to hold a book in their hand.
Many of the readers I know, myself included, have many e-books. They like the convenience and portability of the e-books. However, they still like the feel and the reduced strain on the eye of paper print copy. I work around kids in school settings and many adults who read and overall most still prefer to hold a book in the hand.
So, for me the decision was never either e-book or print. The decision has always been both. I’ll share more about which choices I came to soon.
Keep writing and sharing your stories.
