The eBook problem – (if a book falls in the forest does anyone know?)

eBooks are digital files of your book. This is the internet at its finest. You write a book. Then you either hire someone or do it yourself and create a cover, inside material and back material, then up load it and sit back and rake in the BIG BUCKS, right?.
NOT!!! Publishing an eBook, like a releasing a POD text, is like throwing a book out of a plane into the deepest reaches of the Amazon (pun intended) and hope people will travel there and then send you money after they find it. You guessed it. Not a penny comes your way. Unless…. You let people know exactly where the book is there and then convince them they should buy it, not an easy task but it is doable.
There are some sues for an eBook or POD product without any support – if you are writing a book with your grand kids’ names in it, or a genealogy reference for your family. This is a perfect vehicle. A town history or maybe a company profile. You could have a book signing at your nest Fourth of July picnic.
You see my point. Uploading your book is cheap and easy, easier than making a POD and certainly cheaper. So what? Just because its available doesn’t mean anything,
YOU still have to make it highly visible, attractive, affordable and desirable. How do you do that?
