Making Money with Your Knowledge and Expertise as a Writer
The Art of Self-Publishing and Its Benefits
associating your work with big name references or contributors. However, for the
meantime, it is probably best that you rely on them to get you some sales.
It is also important that you clearly specify the language you used for your work. This
is because many different eBooks have titles and summaries in English, but upon
buying the book, it turns out to be in an entirely different language. This is why
Kindle requires self-publishers to state the language of your text, so that your buyers
actually know what they are buying.
? Clarifying the Rights on Your Book
This is a very important step, which all modern self-publishers should take seriously.
This is why K indle has ensured that no book is available on their store without a clear
statement from the owner or the author regarding its rights. If you want your book to
serve as a handbook and allow people to reproduce it partially or in complete form,
then it is important that you mention that you want your book in the public domain.
This means that you will be in no position to press copyright or intellectual property
theft charges against anyone who borrows even just a sentence from your book.
However, if you are of the corporate mood and do not want anyone else to copy text
from your work, unless they approach you and are ready to pay a compensation fee
for it, you should write it down in clear terms that you reserve all the rights of
reproduction for this book.
Kindle understands that many a legal battles continue over this topic, and more often
than not, it is because one party did not clearly state what rights they are giving to the
buyer of the book. Hence, after careful research they have reached the conclusion that
all authors should state what they wish to do with their rights before uploading it on
Kindle. If you are unsure, it is important that you discuss it with your attorney and
make up your mind, because without a definite answer, you will not be able to upload
your book on the virtual stores.
