    Rebecca, thank you for this post. I recently published a book, now marketing it and considering whether to go Kindle, or not to go Kindle. You’ve given me some good thoughts to consider.

    I am an aspiring ebook author, so this post is a wake-up call in a sense! 😉 I see it as a long-range thing. How is the market nowadays for Kindle books, compared with other e-book formats?

      Hi Martin,

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. First, let me say that I DO believe Kindle books are an excellent thing to do — or I wouldn’t provide Kindle services! I wrote this post, just to present the other side and give people like you something to think about so they would have realistic expectations when it comes to publishing Kindle books.

      When it comes to eBooks, Kindle is definitely the way to go. Now having said that, once you have your book formatted for Kindle, it doesn’t take a lot to also get it into Nook format so it can be sold through Barnes and Noble as well. But Kindle is definitely priority.

      One great thing about Kindle books is that they can be read on people’s computers, on their phones, iPads or Android tablets, and of course Kindle devices. So people don’t have to have a Kindle in order to read your Kindle book. So definitely pursue publishing a Kindle book, but just be realistic about what to expect!

      Hope you have a great 2013!

      Best,

      Rebecca
