A newly released ebook says the traditional book publishing industry operates an archaic and dysfunctional business model that exploits small time authors and publishers. According to the author, Shaun Fawcett, his Instant Book Writing Kit offers a new Âonline publishing modelÂ that shows independent authors and publishers how to use multiple online distribution channels (via the Internet) to bypass the conventional publishing model and make a lot more money for their efforts.
ÂI was shocked when I published my first two books using the traditional book publishing model a few years ago. Even though I had by-passed the major publishing houses by self-publishing, I wasnÂt able to completely side-step the way that industry operates, since I still had to adhere to its operating practices in order to get my books into the bookstores. I was stunned to learn about the archaic and exploitive nature of many of the standard business practices still used by the book publishing industry in North AmericaÂ.
Fawcett says it was largely the dubious business practices of the traditional publishing industry that motivated him to find a better way to publish and market his own books. He claims that he has done exactly that, and has now documented his new approach to publishing -- the Online Publishing Model -- in detail in his newly released Instant Book Writing Kit. His Kit offers a step-by-step system for writing, publishing, and marketing a book or ebook using Internet-based distribution channels that almost completely by-passes the traditional publishing infrastructure.
ÂOne of the most blatant examples of these unacceptable practices is when the industry forces authors/self-publishers to wait a full 90 to 120 days, and sometimes longer, to get paid after a book sale is madeÂ stated Fawcett. ÂAnother example is the industryÂs standard protocol for ÂreturnsÂ whereby book sellers are given 100% refunds for books they order but do not sell, and then these refunds get charged back to the author, often months after the initial transaction!Â He went on to add, ÂBut the most mind-boggling and little known fact is how that industry victimizes small time authors and self-publishers by paying them the measly sum of between 3% and 6% of the cover price of their own book Â in my opinion, that borders on criminal.Â
According to the Fawcett, Instant Book Writing Kit is a step-by-step instruction manual that explains exactly how he went about writing, publishing and marketing 7 successful ebooks over a 27-month period. He claims that if you follow his 17 Action Steps To Online Publishing Success you will significantly increase your book/ebook sales and profits over what they would be with the traditional publishing model.
ÂThrough this ebook, I am giving independent authors and self-publishers direct access to a more profitable way to write, publish and market their books/ebooks based on my own hard-earned, trial-and error learning experiences over a three-year period.Â
Instant Book Writing Kit, is the seventh in a series of ebooks that Fawcett has released in the past 34 months.
