Why wouldn't you? I'm thinking about doing that with one of my hubs.
I'd like to hear others experience about writing books from their hubs.. I'm looking into this
I've been thinking about doing this myself, so likewise, I'm curious. I don't think it'd be an extremely difficult process, but I wouldn't know where to even begin.
I have 5 ebooks from hubs and Business Insider articles under my real name, Gary Anderson
I don't know if my hubs are good enough to make into a book ....but.....would you self publish? how would you publish?
go to amazon and search kindle and then look for how to publish a kindle ebook. they give you very specific instructions there. As I learn more I will tell you more. Good luck to you.
Get Sandy Mertens, a hubber and Giant Squid to do it for you.
I published a book based on - but not a copy of - a hub - and i now obviously promote the book on my hub http://lissie.hubpages.com/hub/Vacation … t-and-Tips
I wrote a short version of how to self-publish as my latest hub - and there is more info on my blog (see my profile).
Basically I would have thought a hub along is too short - my book is about 20k words - my hub about 2k - but you could certainly string a group of hubs together.
You need a decent cover design, and to spend some time editing and formatting so your book looks good - but personally I think Amazon's kindle and smashwords.com (for distribution to sites such as Apple and B&N ) is one of the most exciting thing that has happened to writers - ever really.
I've thought about doing that for awhile, but I've met quite a few people that has gone that route and ended up not selling anything. That's what I worry about. I have a lot of articles about Oklahoma that I'd love to put into a book, but I'm still up in the air about it.
Hopefully you've had good sales through Amazon. Thanks for the information - it gives us something to think about.
I have not done it through Amazon yet but thinking about it. I don;t think you have to put money out to do an ebook. Hope you can do something with yours. Good luck to you.
I've sold about a dozen copies in a couple of weeks - that's the beginning - I can guarantee that you won't sell anything if you don't publish anything. Its just the same as websites or hubs - you need to write a book want to read and promote it
Thanks Lissie! I am beginning to realize what you are saying. Got to start singer where eh.
I have sold 104 ebooks through Amazon and some through borders and Ipad. I had Sandy Mertens put them on Smashwords, and then on Kindle. I used hubs and articles from Business Insider where I contribute as a labor of love.
It is slow season for ebooks right now. They will pick up, especially non fiction.
I publish under my real name, Gary Anderson
A friend of mine owns a company that publishes books. The price is competitive, and you get to keep all the royalties. Send me a message if you want more info.
Could anyone honestly tell me, if you don't mind bothering to, if my hubs that speak about depression and bipolar would be good enough to put into a self help book and if people would read something like that....

How does one go about publishing their work through Amazon?I am thinking of publishing a few pieces of work through Amazon, but I have a few questions about it. Is it as easy as it sounds? Does it involve anything special? I.e. copyright laws, things like that?

The reason I'm wondering is because the advertisements are kind of obtrusive and ugly. I like that they mutable and you can design a product list for them, but I know I have never really even thought about buying something from an Amazon link, and rarely even click them. I was just...

What's the best day of the week to publish hubs?I've been noticing some differences in traffic to my hubs depending on the day of the week that they are published on. While a general trend seems to show late weekdays, like Thursday and Friday, to be the best time to publish these articles, I'm not...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

Someone recently stated that there are limits to how much you can link to your own hubs. Does anybody know the limitations?

Is it better to self-publish a book through Amazon using CreateSpace or to work through a publisher?
