Amazon cracks down on quality of content

As of February 3rd all eBooks offered for Amazon Kindle that have been reported to include typos, formatting issues, or other mistakes that lead to a poor reader experience will be removed from Amazon until the mistakes in question have been fixed. Readers attempting to purchase a title that has been reported to contain errors will be confronted with a message stating “Item under Review”, and the title will not be available for purchase.

What this means for you: Finding a great editor and proper formatting of your eBook just became even more important. There are a variety of repercussions here, including the failure of a marketing plan if your book is taken down in the middle of a paid promotion.

This is one of many reasons why you need a publisher such as Empire Publishing to professionally produce your book.

When it comes to book publishing, as an author you could try to make a go of it on your own as many others have after receiving countless rejection letters, and then you might fail as eighty-five percent of self published authors as well. There is far more to publishing a book than writing the story. This is where Empire Publishing comes in to put together a professional designed book and help market the product.

Traditional Publishing

Posted: September 30, 2015 in Uncategorized

Are you still trying to obtain a traditional book publishing contract? The question you should be asking yourself is, “Why are you wasting your precious time?” In case you are unaware of it, 85% of authors that have landed a contract with a publishing firm make little to no money at all on royalties. The way it works is the author might receive an advance up to $1,500, and no royalties will be paid until after the advance has been met. In most cases, an author never sees another dime due to return book fees that did not sell while in what few bookstores remain. Allow me to show you the real numbers an author receives in royalties through a major publisher. If a book sells for $20.00, the author might receive $1.30 per book, and that’s on the high end of the scale. Through Empire Publishing, the author can receive up to $9.95 per in royalties for the same book.

All publishers that might offer a contract require an author to have an existing well established platform and any advertising is the sole responsibility of the author who must pay for it out of his or her pocket. However, and here’s the silver lining, self published authors are making millions of dollars per year and are now the driving force behind sales for the publishing industry. So, I ask you again, “Why would you want to sign a contract and lose all your rights and royalties when you can keep the income yourself?”

Before you waste any more time, Empire Publishing (over 30 years experience in print and audio publishing) has a free booklet available for download at http://empire-publishing.com/empire/Empire_Publishing/sel%20publish%20ebook.pdf

To further understand the publishing industry, we encourage you to read the free booklet and spend some time looking around our website http://www.empire-publishing.com .

Empire Publishing is looking towards the future as well and is in the process of developing book marketing platforms that are not yet available by anyone.

Keep 100% of your royalties and rights. You are in control. We are looking forward to working with you in the future and making all your publishing dreams a reality. Empire Publishing has simplified the task of getting a book published and has designed publishing package to meet any need or budget. I hope to talk with you soon.

The eBook Fad is Fading

Posted: April 18, 2015 in Uncategorized

aboutBANNER

Digital reading devices exploded on the scene and took down many bookstore chains. Publishing a book became easier than ever and new authors made a substantial amount of money.
Simon & Schuster’s digital sales were up about 20% in 2013. In 2012, digital sales rose 36% compared to the prior year. Print sales fell 2.8% last year, compared to a 6.9% decline in 2012. Digital sales, which include both e-books and downloadable audio, accounted for 27% of all revenue in 2013.
The ebook dominated the industry from 2012 through 2013 and there were predictions that the printed book would soon go the way of the dinosaurs. However, that prediction was wrong as seen by the decline of digital book sales and the reemergence and popularity of printed books.
Authors that solely produced digital books are losing sales. Reports on the Internet are showing that the printed book is fizzling out and that digital book sales are steadily growing, but someone is not producing legitimate facts because statistics show that the printed book is on the rebound.
Several studies have shown a strong preference for printed textbooks, notably among those in college who have tried both types. In a HP survey, 57% preferred print; only 21% preferred an ebook. Waterstones, a U.K. book store chain which also sells Amazon’s Kindle, told the Financial Times that demand for the e-reader has all but disappeared.

This does not mean that books all around book sales are diminishing. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Printed book sales have been showing a consistent growth in each quarter over the past few years. Large book retail chains have toppled, but there is a reemergence of the small independent bookstores. The industry itself is flourishing and Waterstones now plans to open a dozen new stores this year.
“The rapid growth of ebook sales has quite dramatically slowed and there is some evidence it has gone into reverse,” said Douglas McCabe of Enders Analysis.

Sam Husain, the chief executive of Foyles, a London bookstore chain, also told the FT that sales of paper books were up 11 percent this Christmas over last year.

A year ago, Empire Publishing’s authors averaged four to one with digital sales leading print. By the end of the third quarter in 2014, digital and print sales were 50/50. Towards the end of the first quarter of 2015, print book sales rose above digital.
According to the Nielsen Books & Consumer survey, ebook sales made up 23% of unit sales for the first six months of 2014, while hardcover’s accounted for 25% and paperbacks 42% of sales. So not only did overall print book sales outsell ebooks, both hardcovers and paperbacks outsold e-books as well.

What has caused the dramatic decline of ebook sales? There are several reasons for the downward turn, but most notable is the saturation of poorly produced products by authors that solely publish ebooks using automatic conversion tools and cookie cutter cover templates. Authors that solely publish in digital format are limiting themselves in book sales by releasing a sub-standard product, but even more important is the loss of maximum sales potential by not releasing his or her book in print format.

Don’t fall behind as the industry rapidly grows and moves forward. Empire Publishing and Literary Service Bureau is here to help authors achieve success.
