|It seems a good source of extra revenue for many here is with books/ebooks. I am interested to know who has published what (links please!) AND how you went about publishing.|
- Did you go with a traditional book (paper/hardback)? If traditional, did you sell online or within an actual store.
- Did you create an ebook? If so, which platform for distributing has worked out the best for you (3rd party, on your own, or a mix)
- Did you go with all text or do you have images or graphics? If you have done both, what can be noticed between the two?
It would also be helpful to know the income you generate, on average, from books (not necessary but I am curious to know). I have always talked about writing a book of sorts but have never fully carried through. I have started off and on and have written many tutorials for coworkers, I would like to take enhance those as well and maybe make some extra income from them.
