Book publishing, and other legacy media, have been democratized by recent technology developments.
Ebooks are the new blogs–blogs that can be scaled and monetized.
As the marketing and operations director for Pressbooks, a platform that helps publishers and authors convert their files to ebooks and print book files without a graphic designer or Web developer, I am intimately familiar with the nuances of ebook and print-on-demand publishing today.
I do frequent speaking engagements on how to self-publish your book affordably but professionally.
My most recent book is The Pressbooks Guide to Self-Publishing: Get Your Book Into Print and Ebook Stores for $100.
I’m a pro at helping businesses go blog to book, converting existing content into book format. Most recently, I helped client Sedona Monthly develop Sedona Monthly Hikes the Red Rocks.
Previously, I compiled existing Web content for the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism into an ebook, Business Beat Basics.
I’ve also self-published several books of my own in Kindle and CreateSpace.
As the adjunct professor for Social Media MCO 435 at the Cronkite School, I authored and compiled a series of supplementary course readings into an open Web book, Social Media for Students.
I now work with Rebus Foundation, building a community of practice around the creation and dissemination of open textbooks.
