Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success by Mark Coker is a thorough self-help manual about how to succeed as an ebook author. It is a good book for a soon-to-be-published author, but it is also helpful for an author who has already published a book, or several books for that matter.This book covers a lot of information, which is pleasing since it is free. You usually can’t go wrong with free, and this book is no exception. It emphasizes the importance of writing a well-written and edited book with [...]

Interesting and I picked up a few tips, but there was nothing there that is not obvious for any author who has already published a book and is on the marketing trail. Worth the read though.

Not bad. Clearly Coker pushes his Smashwords version of the world. I can't say that I completely agree though. For example, Coker is clearly no fan of KDP Select from and while I agree that unpublishing you book to make it free on may be a bad idea, initially publishing your book this way and they moving to other distribution outlets may well be a good idea. Some of the advice is all over the map with contradictory recommendations and stories of every approach under the sun that have worked. I [...]

This is a solid, friendly overview of a subject that is becoming increasingly need-to-know in today's publishing environment. Smashwords wunderkind Mark Coker offers several dozens "secrets" to success, all of which are important foundational knowledge on the topic. Most authors with any experience in e-book publishing will already be familiar with most of his points, but they're still good for a reminder. And if you're just starting out, this is an excellent place to begin.

For starters this book is free. Every writer looking at becoming an author should read this. What you take away from it depends on your mindset. As with everything like this it is not the end all-be all to success. It is a guideline and should be used as such. Try some of the secrets and adjust the to suit you. It's all anyone can do.

Great collection of secrets to book publishing in a new millennium. Each is implementable on its own or in groups with others that make sense to you. If you have published your own book or are thinking about writing and publishing a book you should make this tool a part of your planning.

the good read even for somebody who has published quite a bit. I found it to be useful in some good reminders and a couple of other helpful hints for me as well.

Less than 24 hoursI was seeing almost no sales (5 in four months). I joined a promotion at Smashwords where my book was free and actually saw some results, but when the promotion ended, I was back to almost nothing. Last night I started to read this book and decided to change the price to free. In less than 24 hours I'm already seeing results. It's not much, but it's better than the last four months. I'll put some of the other tips to work too.

Secrets of Ebook Publishing Success and Smashwords Book Marketing Guide, by Mark Coker. Both of these are free ebooks.Mark Coker is the founder and current head guy at Smashwords. He started Smashwords when he and his wife had written the book Boob Tube, but–despite obvious promise–could not get an editor interested enough to publish it. He is now very involved in indie-publishing promotion and education, the entire process of Smashwords (which has grown exponentially the last few years), wi [...]

This is a gem of a book for the price (free!). It's a good read for aspiring authors who are just starting to self-publish and need some guidance getting started in the seemingly chaotic, unorganized, and ever-expanding galaxy of the self-publishing industry. As founder of Smashwords, Mark Coker leans heavily on Smashwords’ self-publishing platform to help the reader understand what it takes to publish and distribute an e-book(s) successfully. The book complements his other free companion piec [...]

The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success est intéressant, je suppose. Certaines évidences, mais surtout des moments de réalisation. Comme les habitudes des acheteurs, les prix à apposer son livre et le marketing de livre électronique. Pour quelqu'une comme moi qui a beaucoup de difficulté à faire les premiers pas vers les autres, IRL ou dans la vie virtuelle, il y a abordé plusieurs trucs de façon assez vague.

The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success by Mark Coker.All writers on should read this. For anyone who is even toying with the idea of going 'Indie' this truly is a must read. Although Coker is the founder of Smashwords, currently the largest ebook distributer, this book (and likely all of his) is by no means a mere advert for his company. This is a data-rich, clearly written 'how-to' book for anyone interested in being or becoming an Independent Writer. His passion and interest in Epublising an [...]

Feel like I already reviewed this a while back, maybe around the time I published my second book. And I know I read it first back when I published my first book. Anyway, in case I'm just imagining that, here goes.Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success is one of the other free books you can get from the guy who runs Smashwords. The main one, you'll recall, is the Smashwords Style Guide, which is absolutely essential, if not for any other reason than that it's impossible to publish a book on Smashwor [...]

This book was written by the founder of Smashwords, a free platform for indi authors to distribute their ebooks to various retailers.Over all, I found the book very realistic and encouraging. It didn't tell me I was going to be a bestselling author and a multi-millionaire within a matter of weeks. It emphasized the fact that writing, as with any career, requires a lot of hard work, dedication, practical business sense, and a certain amount of luck.This book outlines many marketing strategies and [...]

I published my first eBook in June, and then my second and third in December and January. I thought I was a bit more knowledgeable after the first experience, but there is much I didn't know. For example, I didn't appreciate the flexibility of an eBook as opposed to a physical book, meaning that I didn't think to add new information as it became available. Because of Mark's suggestions, I added an "About the Author" section and information about my other two books in each of my books. I also gav [...]

This is a great read for indie authors, and I'm surprised that many more haven't read it. Smashwords gets a bad rap these days, but I've always been a fan. As an author who has books on Smashwords, I consider this book to be the philosophy that undergirds the website. I appreciate Coker and Smashwords more after reading this.Without exception, all of the advice that Coker gives is sound. If you've read a ton of indie books on self-publishing, you probably won't find anything new here, but the bo [...]

Every time I read one of Coker's books, I feel as if I'm taking one of my favorite college prerequisite's courses once again. The Secrets to Ebook publishing is the kind of read that keeps indie authors such as myself having continuous "Aha Moments." From sharing the best way to sell your books, or the reason why your e-book may simply not be having any success at all, this book is great for all authors simply to trying to raise the bar revenue wise. I liked the fact that there were some secrets [...]

At the beginning I mistakenly thought that an indie writer was someone from India writing a book. Finally I got it. And I did not see myself being an indie author until I read this book.I am an author and I have been published, self published, in the traditional paper world.There is a new Ebook economy growing rapidly with so much potential that any author should try to take advantage of this opportunity and jump into Ebook publishing.This book is a great source of information and wisdom to help [...]

After attending Mark's workshop at the RWA National Convention, I decided to read this book and learn even more about E-Book Publishing. I'm really glad I did, because I've picked up on some great suggestions to make things a whole lot easier. Let's face it, for many of us there's so much to learn that it's overwhelming. For an author who's been in the game for a while, it's a good way to reinforce already learned secrets. But for the newbie writer, this book is a one-stop shop!An important poin [...]

Mark Coker shares a lot of good information in The Secrets to Ebook Publishing Success, though much of his advice could hardly be classified as secret! For example, the first secret he lists is "Write a Great Book." If you hang in there, though, you will find that this book is quite informative and could even be inspirational to the budding e-book author. The most exciting information Coker shares is his data illustrating the rapidly growing potential market for the self-published author.Many we [...]

An excellent resource for self-publishing tips and ideas. Perhaps a bit dated due to the rapid pace of change in the self-pubbing world, but most of the "Secrets" are basic strategies that apply universally no matter what the indie publishing climate.Prose was straightforward, well organized, and progressed logically from first steps to last and getting deeper into strategies and techniques toward the end. A nice appendix with web links given for useful self-pub websites and a thorough glossary [...]

Mark Coker's excellent resource helps de-mystify the world of e-publishing. It's realistic and practical - advising that there are bestselling e-publishers out there, but most of us will never achieve that level, and that's okay because some books will provide a lot of ongoing revenue and some might only provide a little. The most encouraging insight is that e-books can be revised over time. If your book isn't selling, you can re-market, re-write, and re-design everything about it. So there's a [...]

Great IdeasThe eBook covers almost everything an indie author needs to get started. What I liked most was how he backs up his assertions with real data, not just assumptions. The discussion about KDP's select program was interesting, but you need to keep in mind that he runs Smashwords and he is not entirely objective. That being said, due to the recent algorithm changes, the benefits from the select program is greatly diminished. In fact, the benefits do not outweigh the costs of exclusivity an [...]

This is a must for every writer who wrote a book and then lost hair and got sick while a masterpiece sat gathering dust on the shelf. Mark has written an easy to understand book that really makes one think. To all the writers who cannot choose between traditional publishing and Indie - read this book. Simply explained and full of really good advice, I urge all writers to add this to their book shelf. Nothing is guaranteed but this book opens up a whole new area for the writer to explore.Ray Ston [...]
