Advise for E-Book Authors + More

What's the hardest thing about publishing an e-book? If you said writing it, you'd be wrong. It turns out that by far, after searching for a graphic designer to set the book into the different file formats for the various e-readers -- and I found her only after conducting dozens of interviews on Craig's List -- the most frustrating part of the entire process was submitting the book for sale on iTunes.

Top travel blogger Ellen Barone, no relation, interviewed me on this and many other things related to my new travel tips e-book, The Travel Authority: Essential Tips for Hassle-Free Travel. Read her interview with me here:

I'm heading into the e-book business in 2013, so love hearing of your experiences with it.

The sounds like a headache! But aren't you glad it's all done?

JTravel said...

Hi MyKidsEatSquid, Headache big time. But, would you believe, I've had some people asking me when I'm going to do a revision! (And this book is barely two months old.)

Hi Irene, Thanks. Yes, I'm very happy with the illustrations. (I'm all about the cuteness factor.)
