Who has self-published an ebook and what was your experience?
A great hub might explain the step-by-step process of ebook self-publishing.
I claim to be writing an ebook in serial form, right here on hub pages.
It is a fiction story and as it is on line I feel justified in calling it that.
However I suspect you may have in mind a finished book put up in one place for anyone to download, presumably at some cost.
I am not really interested in taking it any further at this stage, considering the relatively poor response, taking into account how many readers there are on the internet I can scarcely claim any success.
I hope someone else may be able to answer your question more specifically to give you what you want
I've got 3 e-books self published, although i've been way to busy to do any selling of them or advertising, a few have been downloaded for free to family members. its a lot of fun seeing them in book form, and thankfully i have a friend here IRL that does book binding, all i have to do now is print them and design the covers
there are a lot of online places to publish your e-books, you can even do them in digital form if you chose to.
lulu.com, blurb.com are just two..
when i first joined hp, i wrote a hub on self publishing, i know there's hundreds of others on the same topic so do a search and find the best ones to help you
I've self-published ebooks in the form of a novella, two short stories, and a non-fiction work through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I did it mainly so that I could learn how the process worked, especially with the Kindle Select program. I covered a lot of ground with the experience, including editing, cover design, formatting/conversions, and HTML coding. I don't have an inspiring success story like some of the people you will read about, but I did learn quite a bit and found it satisfying on a personal level just to have done it. I've been toying with the idea of doing a series of hubs on my experiences and the resources I used. Maybe I'll put that plan into action in the near future.

I am struggling with learning about ebook formatting and am wondering, if you have published an ebook, exactly how you format your work. What fonts, allignment, etc. do you use or does it matter? Help and advice will be appreciated.
