So as you saw from the video yesterday, there are three things you need to move ahead with publishing your ebook:
1. Your ebook (in WORD format is fine);
2. Your cover art
3. A description of your book.
I met with a friend at Starbuck's yesterday afternoon who did the cover art for me quickly -- good to know graphic artists -- but if you don't any, there are many resources for this now -- just Google "ebook cover art" and you'll find someone to help you. It shouldn't cost much over $50.
I'll finish the description of my book today. The book was one I drafted about a month ago and yesterday I cleaned up and edited more carefully. I will ask someone else to proofread it. I ran a proofreading department recently and I know one thing very well, you can't proofread your own stuff, it's just impossible to see the errors after a while.
With any luck I'll publish by the end of the week. My very short book is about why ALL WOMEN SHOULD START A BUSINESS -- it distresses me that more women don't try it.
It's called "Does This Start-up Make Me Look Fat?" My logic is that women have everything they need to start businesses -- they're smart, they're good at making things, promoting things (like their kids and clubs and charities), they are creative and brave -- so why aren't they starting companies. Finally it occurred to me -- maybe they will think they'll end up looking like some fat old rich guy if they start a company. And women don't like looking fat.
