I have a few ideas that I would like to put into an ebook or two, but not really sure how to go about it. First how to get it online and second once it's out there how to advertise it. Or is publishing it the old fashion way better in the long run? Any help would be appreciated.
Here is a link to a great book on how to create an ebook. I used it and have had good response from people reading it. It cost $37 but it was well worth it. Look at the link and it explains everything it teaches you.
I've just put a new hub up about this so you might want to take a look. I hope you'll find it helpful.
Not sure I can post a link here, but if you check out my profile you'll find it easy enough, it's titled "Creating Your First Ebook" and deals with the whole process from start to finish including promotion, marketing and selling.
Also, check lulu.com and see what they have to offer. If you do all your own work it doesen't cost anything, they work on a royalty basis.
One of my hubs described the way my daughter built her ebook and sold it.
get it published on Lulu.com it will cost you nothing. Both Cindy and I have published a E-book on there its great. Books cost money but not E-books.

What company do you recommend for publishing an ebook?I'm hoping to publish an ebook soon. My first attempt did not go so well because the company I used was not careful about reproducing my story the way I wrote it. I'm looking for help in this area please.

Should I ask before giving someone's hub a blog link?I would like to post hubs/hubbers I think are good on my blog outside of HubPages, is this something that would universally be appreciated, or should I ask first before posting a link to their hub?

I am about to publish an ebook (on Overcoming Anxiety) and would like to make use of my hubpages related to that topic (more to be posted soon). Will having an amazon link to the Kindle ebook count as one of my two self-serving links, even though it is in an Amazon capsule? I assume yes, but wanted...
