100 sites for fiction writers: #52 - The Writer's Guide to E-Publishing

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.

The Writer's Guide to E-Publishing

With digital self-publishing becoming more and more common, fiction writers are jumping on the bandwagon left and right trying to figure out how to publish their novels and short stories in e-book formats. There are a lot of questions, and it's not always easy to find the right information.

Wouldn't it be nice if there was a single place online where we could go to find answers to all our questions? Perhaps there is. And perhaps it is The Writer's Guide to E-Publishing.

At this site you will find a ton of Resources and Tips, along with Breaking News concerning the world of e-publishing.

If you are already publishing e-books but trying to figure out how to build an audience, you might want to check out the E-Experiments section of the site. It highlights sites, publishers and authors who are trying different ideas at building readership. Some ideas might be great, others bad and a few outright crazy, but it's nice to have all this knowledge in one place. You might latch onto a few ideas, or you might learn a few things not to try.

I suggest you spend some time looking around this site. There are plenty of guest articles from people who are already finding success as e-book writers and publishers, and there informational articles as well.

I need to check this out. If I do another kindle book I plan to insert it into the formatting that I used for Killing trail and hope to save myself time that way.

Thanks so much, Ty for the WG2E shout out! And picking my grog #52. When Lee Lopez, DD Scott and I decided almost a year ago to start the site, we were only looking to pay it forward to writers. Now Indie Warriors come to the site and teach us as well as us telling them what has and hasn't worked for us.
We get over 1 million page views a month and growing. I'm so glad WG2E has touched a lot of writers!
Thanks so much!!

I'll second Tonya's thank you with my own as well, Ty!

Thanks sooo very much for The WG2E shout-out!

Nothin' beats writers helping writers by paying it forward...and that's what it's all about at The WG2E!

Y'all are welcome there anytime!

Third thanks for featuring our website, WG2E..We love the site, and have a blast paying forward to other indies..
We envisioned our site as the go to place for indies, and have worked hard to keep the information updated. It has grown well beyond our expectations.

Thanks again, Lee Lopez
