  1. “Let’s Get Digital”.

    Having published more than 80 books with traditional publishers, both as an author and a ghostwriter, I am aware that self-publishing and e-publishing are leading us all to exciting new places. These territories are, however, still largely uncharted for most of us and this is a perfect guidebook for the novice traveller. Highly recommended.

  2. Just to let you know, your book has inspired me to get moving and I am just putting together my first e-book “The Fabulous Dreams of Maggie de Beer”. Following your lead, I have started blogging about the experience at

    Many thanks for lighting the path.

    The link to amazon didn’t work. I think wordpress formatted it wrong or something.

    i have self published two health and diet books (printed versions that is) and am about to release the second in eBook form. what an exhausting struggle it is to find down-to-earth, straightforward advice on the whole process of going global, getting an EIN, sales tax and the rest. big thanks for putting it down in ‘plain english’ in Let’s Get Digital – i downloaded your free version but happily hit the donate button as you have answered so many questions. here’s to netting a few bucks whilst avoiding the hidden traps! keep you posted.


    • Thank you very much, Fiona. Best of luck in your endeavors! (And come back with any questions.)

        All going pretty well since launching the 2 Weeks in the Fast Lane diet eBook early May. Sales of the Kindle version are reasonably steady but sales of the iBook in the Apple store which (forgive the moment of self indulgence!) looks fab because it is in colour with all the stunning graphics that are included in the paperback are VERY slow. Any helpful hints when you get a minute to encourage a bit more enthusiasm?

    I have been writing a lot and at some point I plan to put certain related blogs into various chapters and self publish. I am planning on using Amazon Kindle. You have a tremendous amount of pages to read. I was only able to skim but saw one thing in most posts and that is self publishing. I hope to have enough pages soon to put together a compilation on a specific subject. Thank you for sharing.
