E-Book Progress for the week of 4/22/13 to 4/28/13

Here's what I accomplished this week on my e-book:

  • Decided to try something different and rather than writing a full-length book about working from home, first I'm going to try to write a short Kindle Single about my experiences with the work from home companies I've worked for, and I'll also talk about a few of the lessons I've learned over the past few years.  I hope to use this Kindle Single as a way to build buzz for when the actual book comes out.  One thing I'm finding out as I do research on writing Kindle Singles, however, is that whatever I publish in my Kindle Single can't be published in other Kindle books, so I'm undecided as to whether I want to limit my Kindle Single to information about my first ten years of working from home, or include information about some of the lessons I've learned, and just not include those lessons in my other Kindle book - any thoughts/suggestions you all have would be appreciated! 


  1. One thing to keep in mind (and you may already know this) is that a short article doesn't have to be published as a Kindle Single. It can still be published in the regular Kindle section - just make the length clear in your description so your readers won't be surprised.

    1. Thanks for the tip Frank - is there an advantage to doing one over the other?

    2. Hi Erica. I'm far from an authority. I have heard that it's harder to be accepted to do a Kindle Single than it is to just publish it in the regular Kindle sections. But that's just what I've heard - not sure if it's true or not. If it is true, I'd say that's the advantage.
