Ebooks currently make up almost 10% of book sales, and their stratospheric growth is expected to continue. With the various devices out there - Kindle, Kobo, Nook, iPad, among others - and the formattting issues, how should you even begin? More importantly, several indie authors are making significant money by selling ebooks. What are their secrets? We'll discuss these issues and many more with our special guests, authors Karen McQuestion and Tony Eldridge. About our guests: Karen McQuestion's essays have appeared in Newsweek, Chicago Tribune, Denver Post, Christian Science Monitor and several anthologies. She is the author of six books self-published on Amazon’s Kindle, one of which, the novel, A Scattered Life, caught the attention of an L.A. based production company and became the first self-published Kindle book to be optioned for film. Five of her previously self-published books will now be published by AmazonEncore. McQuestion lives with her family in Hartland, Wisconsin. Learn more at http://www.karenmcquestion.com/. Tony Eldridge is the author of the award winning action/adventure novel, The Samson Effect, which Clive Cussler calls a "first rate thriller brimming with intrigue and adventure." He is also the creator of Marketing Tips for Authors, a site that publishes free tips and videos to help authors learn marketing techniques for their books.
