It's been almost two years since I started working on the book “More Podcast Money.” As I did my final preparations to get it ready for Amazon, I laughed as I had to edit out mentions of resources like scratchback.com (as it is no longer in service). I had done all I needed to do. I had researched and written the book. I had hired a professional editor (poor guy), and cut my book down (according to him I had about four books in my one book). I hired a graphic artist to produce my book cover (they say you don't judge a book by the cover, but in this case – you do).
Every time I get ready to buy the ISBN numbers (a pack of ten costs between $200 – $300) something would come up (Blogworld, Car Repairs, etc). It just seemed that I couldn't get over that hump. I had sold a decent amount of copies as a PDF, but the dream was to get it into Amazon.com
When I met Jim Kukral at blogworld he said six words that changed my life and let me complete my dream. Those words were “You don't need an ISBN number.” What? I said. “If you are publishing to the Kindle, you don't need an ISBN number.” As electronic books are outselling paper works three to one, I didn't want to completely ignore the paper world, but for now I just wanted to get the book into Amazon.After all, in the same way that you need Adobe reader to read a pdf, you can read a Kindle book on any platform (even your browser).
Yesterday my dream became a reality. Like any first time author there are things that need tweaked, but I enjoyed the giant smile on my face when I did a search for “More Podcast Money” and saw this.
I relaxed for a good thirty seconds.Then I started working on what should've been my first book “Planning Your Podcast.”
