Link to your e-book!

Hi and sorry for not writing much lately but I have been really busy. I would like to offer anyone who has an e-book the opportunity to post a link to your book on my site. We are here to learn together and help each other so why not? Think of it as free advertising and a way of introducing your work to others.

A few years ago I set up a WordPress site and offered one of my eBooks for free. Little did I know that most people could not download it as it was not compatible with their device.

I later found out that there is an App called Calibre. Here is the link to the App. https://calibre-ebook.com/

“For the e-book nerds amongst you, calibre has a built-in editor that allows you to edit e-books in the most popular e-book formats, EPUB and Kindle. The editor has many sophisticated features to make editing the innards of e-books as easy and efficient as possible.” This is a quote from their site.

It allows you to download your eBook in different formats. This enables people to read your book on most, if not all eBook readers and computers.

I have used it many times and it works really well. I am not a computer wizard but even I managed to follow the instructions and set things up correctly! It is free to download.

Another idea I had was to publish photos of certain places I had written about in one of my books. https://www.amazon.com/Sacred-Retribution-Ricky-Balona-ebook/dp/B07QLHJD7F

It is a Thriller set in Queenstown and Arrowtown. Arrowtown is fifteen minutes away from us and one of my jobs is in the beautiful town. I sometimes go gold panning on the banks of the river. And yes, I have found a tiny bit of gold!

This is the church where some parts of the story happen.
Banks of the Arrow River where the story begins!
Buckingham street in Arrowtown.
The Common in Arrowtown.

Obviously downloading photos of your Sci-Fi World with three moons and purple vegetation will be a little more difficult! If it is a place you have visited it helps readers better visualize the exact locations mentioned in your book.

Thank you for all the comments and I sincerely hope that some of you will share a link to your eBook. I will write another post over the week-end.

Best wishes and thank you for taking the time to read this.

Ricky.
