If you missed our live Q&A session you can watch the video and listen to the podcast here. We’ve also included a summary of the questions that were asked and answered this month. Q: I’m investing in editors for my first book, do I send to multiple editors one at a time? Q: What’s the difference between trade paperbacks and mass market paperbacks? Q: What are the different book cover design considerations when you’re planning an ebook and print book launch? Q: Are Amazon getting rid of the Table of Contents in their books, and when I upload my book, what should I choose for the DRM (Digital Rights Management) setting? Q: I’ve been offered a contribution-based publishing contract – what are your thoughts on these types of agreements? Q: I’m trying to avoid losing money with my book launch, and am considering a Book Launch service to help me learn the process. Q: How to I go about finding an agent that will represent my subsidiary rights? Q: At what point does an author’s social media following grow organically? Q: I have 1 book out / 10 books out. How should I adjust my marketing activity for these two different approaches? Q: Has ALLi got an insider contact at Amazon, like Andy for Ingram Spark? Q: Can you upload to KDP and make your book available to pre-order? Q: I used a free ISBN when I released via Createspace. Can I release via Ingram Spark with a different ISBN?
