Thinking of publishing your own ebook?

Here are a couple of posts you might find interesting.

First, Writer Beware Blog reviews BookTango’s new e-book self-publishing service: BookTango: Author Solutions Rolls Out Ebook Distribution Services. As you know, not all e-book self-publishing services are created equal. Writer Beware does its usual excellent job of comparing BookTango’s services against offerings from Smashwords, BookBaby, and Ebookit.

And also from Writer Beware Blog comes word of a professional survey of 1000 self-published e-book authors. The survey, which is being done by Taleist, is an attempt to get a better idea of average sales for self-published e-books, so that those of us who have one of our own in the works can set reasonable goals for our marketing efforts and sales results. According to Writer Beware, Taleist has collected 800 responses to date. This is one survey we’ll be keeping our eye on.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at, chatting about books and the writing life at, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
