One more place for the ebook to be seen and bought. iTunes has added a section called Breakout Books which when you click on that link will open in itunes a display of book. Mostly fiction for now with expansion in the future.
This allowing ebooks to be more widely offered on the leading mobile platforms… iphones and ipads.
Smashwords, a leading distributor and converter of digital books, also mentions on their site, talking about how this will benefit the self publishing author “…today’s launch signifies an escalated commitment on the part of Apple…”.
More can be read in The New York Times … looks like self publishing authors are starting to have more channels opened to the sale of ebooks.
Finding the time to research your market and get info from others can help you determining the best ways to move forward. I offer consulting/coaching sessions with a focus on book design, book promotion, book marketing and branding.
