    Authors, do you remember when the first ebooks about creating ebooks came out? How they were helpful for newbies, took you step by step through the entire process, and gave you lots of advice that helped you publish? In those days there weren't as many ebooks around and so it was easier to sell. And then more authors got on board and started sending their mobi and epub files into the market, until discoverability became more challenging.

How they were helpful for newbies, took you step by step through the entire process, and gave you lots of advice that helped you publish? In those days there weren't as many ebooks around and so it was easier to sell. And then more authors got on board and started sending their mobi and epub files into the market, until discoverability became more challenging. These days massive marketing efforts (and costly ones at that) are being used by authors to get the word about there about their books. Ebook bundling has been out for a while. If you knew the right people, and they liked your work, you might be able to join up in a bundle. Well, this book is about the next steps that you can take as an author, forging your own path without depending on someone to find you and change your luck. Chuck Heintzelman knows his business and even has a site to help you put together your own ebook bundle. This book is an excellent reference guide to the next step in your works being discovered. It is a thorough look and helpful guide into the process of bundling, and various ways to achieve this are outlined. I see this as a next step for authors to make their books discoverable for readers who are looking for them. Highly recommended.

    This book has a lot going for it. If you're an indie author of multiple books in a series or in the same genre, you're probably already bundling your own stuff by making boxed sets. If you're not, why not? This book asks the same question. Then it goes far deeper to address those multi-author bundles we're all seeing everywhere these days. How do those work? How do you get in one? eBook Bundling explains all of that. Unfortunately, for most of us, it's hard to get in on one of those deals. You ha This book has a lot going for it. If you're an indie author of multiple books in a series or in the same genre, you're probably already bundling your own stuff by making boxed sets. If you're not, why not? This book asks the same question. Then it goes far deeper to address those multi-author bundles we're all seeing everywhere these days. How do those work? How do you get in one? eBook Bundling explains all of that. Unfortunately, for most of us, it's hard to get in on one of those deals. You have to know several indie authors that want to partner with you, or several hybrid authors with an indie book or a book they have rights back for to offer and they all have to be able to contribute books that can go wide or all be Amazon exclusive. It's a daunting task. I tried to collect a group of mystery authors with a specific audience recently to do a bundle. We failed out of the gate. There weren't enough that were all indie and, of those, half wanted to be Amazon only and/or the book they wanted to contribute was in the Kindle Select program to take advantage of Kindle Unlimited. Chuck Heintzelman has taken eBook bundling to a whole new level by creating the BookRabbit service and then he wrote this book about bundling and about BookRabbit. It's worth it for all of that information. I intend to use his service and recommend it to all of my author friends. We may pull a mystery bundle for our core audience off yet. The only drawback I found with this book was all of the (considerable) discussion of using Vellum to format books and only that. There was precious little recommended about any other software. Unfortunately, Vellum only runs on Apple computers. It has not been produced for the PC. I know a lot of writers and the vast majority of the ones I know don't own an Apple product beyond an iPhone. I have an early iPad. It won't run Vellum and, quite frankly, I don't need it to. I do all of my heavy lifting when it comes to formatting with Scrivener for PC. I know lots of people who do that and others who hire it out or use D2D to do it for them (both of which I did pre-purchasing Scrivener). Heintzelman neglects the needs of the majority of his audience by focusing primarily on a program few of them have the hardware to use.

    This isn't only a great overview of bundling reasons, strategies, etc, but it also contains some great information on new ways that authors can increase chances of discoverability by using BundleRabbit's easy to use bundling program with a step by step walk-thru of set-up, loading, metadata and curating bundles. One of the absolute BEST features about using BundleRabbit to create your multi-author bundles is that THEY handle the payment splits for the authors, meaning a single author doesn't have This isn't only a great overview of bundling reasons, strategies, etc, but it also contains some great information on new ways that authors can increase chances of discoverability by using BundleRabbit's easy to use bundling program with a step by step walk-thru of set-up, loading, metadata and curating bundles. One of the absolute BEST features about using BundleRabbit to create your multi-author bundles is that THEY handle the payment splits for the authors, meaning a single author doesn't have to take on the burden and endless spreadsheet calculations from the payments from all the eRetailers. That alone is worth its weight in gold.

    Hacer lotes o bundles con tus libros es una práctica común entre los autores independientes y este libro es una pequeña guía sobre los aspectos más destacados del bundling: por qué hacerlo, cómo y qué precio poner. Todavía no he tenido oportunidad de hacer un bundle con mis títulos, pero alguno caerá en el futuro y me ha venido bien para dejar claras varias cosas. Recomendable si te encuentras en la misma situación.
