  1. A great interview with Julia and Bob. What a great story and I am very impressed with Julia’s work ethic and planning to have 20 ebooks in less than a year.

    I certainly would be interested in hearing her process on publishing her ebooks. I have two books on Amazon presently available in both paperback and Kindle versions. Always anxious to learn about new ways of doing things.

  2. Thank you for listening Christian. Glad you found it informative. If there’s anything else you would like answered, please let us know.

  3. I found the ebook market and process to be very interesting. As someone who does not read books or magazines except in the physical version where I turn the pages myself, it was a jump. For me, sales have still been more weighted to the physical book side, but I think it will even out to 50/50 over the next year or so. My books are done for the Large Print Market and there still are people who don’t use technology.

    The process of having the paperback book converted to an ebook format was almost seamless and not as intimidating as I had thought.

    I do see the benefits of ebook technology, but I also think there is still a place for physical print (i.e. books, magazines, etc). I spend sooo much time looking at a computer screen each day, that I enjoy the physicality of a book and being able to NOT be on technology 24/7.
