Making Book on E-books: How to write a science or medical e-book and publish and sell it online

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The emphasis in this session will be on practical steps for science writers who understand that electronic publishing has turned the book world upside down and who want to take charge of preparing their books and bringing them into the world online.

Participating will be science writers who have done eBooks and science writers who want to do them. Topics will include eBook basics, reasons to choose eBooks over traditional publishing, the new outlets for long-form writing that is not-quite-a-book, DIY v. publishing services, deciding how much help you need, and other topics you suggest.

We'd also like to begin figuring out if the Science Online community can build a supportive network for eBooks similar to networks that foster genre books such as scifi, mystery, and romance.
