Have you ever published a book?
I am currently writing my first book. Have you ever published a book? If so, was this an electronic book or a hard-copy?
i have published once...in college.. it was in written in word then converted to PDF format...I mean ebook..i found it easy to edit.
No, but it's a dream of mine. This summer I'm crunching on my writing schedule in the hope of getting more pages out and better quality. There are some great books on writing a lot, graduate papers, etc.
I've had three books traditionally published by a regular publisher, but I'm guessing that you're asking about self-publishing? I haven't done that, but am studying the various options, possible editing options, designers, and methods of marketing. Self-publication is a *lot* of work, but I'm very interested in doing some books and booklets (the ones that are pretty much pure text) as both e-books and printed books in the future. Self-publishing gives the author both some great advantages and disadvantages.
Yes. It is both hard copy and then later I had it formatted for the Kindle. I used xlibris.com and was happy with the outcome.
I just recently published my first fantasy ebook through book baby. It's a self publishing website and, so far, I've had a good experience with them. I don't have any sales data yet (too soon) but they have a straightforward system that I liked. If you're thinking of self publishing, you'll definitely want to shop around to see what's best for you. It will all depend on where you want the book listed, if it's physical or electronic and up front costs. And, if you're thinking about going the way of the traditional market, then you'll want to check out the 2013 guide to literary agents as a place to start.
I published a Mathematics textbook years ago. It never made much so I took it back when the publisher seemed to have dropped it from their catalogue and published it on Lulu.
It was a long hard process compared to writing a Hub, but less so than my Phd and MSc Theses.
annoyingly I could do the exercises I set at that time bit seem to have forgotten the answers now.
I published a free e-book on Scribd. I am in the process of writing a couple more books now, too. I think I'll probably use Scribd for those as well. They may not be free this time, though.

I want to do e-book publishing but was advised by other experienced authors that it also has a real disadvantage to it because you might have a hard time going back to traditional publishing. Agents who discover that you have done E-book work before mostly tend to reject your query letter which is...

How do you go about having a book published?I've been looking into publishing companies. I've noticed some want money up front and some don't. What are the steps to publishing? What happens once you submit a manuscript? Does anyone know the step by step process?
