eBooks in Thailand - About Us
How did we begin?
eBooks in Thailand was
started when I wanted to begin selling my book
in Thailand. I already had a few textbooks published by a
"real" publisher and, happy days, my new book was accepted by them.
But after more than a year of waiting, the book had not moved up in
their publishing queue. Looked like my "baby" would never see
the light of the printer's ink. I thought about going the
"vanity" or self-publishing, paper-book rout. But I discovered
how much printing would cost, what it would take to distribute the
book, and then what I would need to do to collect any proceeds it
might produce. That was too much of a hassle.
Then I saw my son reading something on his iPhone. I had
forgotten, we had already entered the 21st century. I would
publish an eBook.
I already had a distribution system since I have my own website
http://retire2thailand.com, a blog
http://retire2thailand.wordpress.com/ and a Facebook page.
And a few friends offered to point to my book from their sites.
I could offer the book on all of them.
Why eBooks in Thailand?
I live in Chiang Mai, Thailand and write a column on retirement
(A Retiring Attitude) for
Chiang Mai City
Life magazine. My column and my website introduce me to a
large number of Expats living here in Thailand. A lot of them
have been writing about their adoptive country. And just like
me, they have problems getting their work published.
eBooks in Thailand would become
a service to help my fellow authors get their work
What does eBooks in Thailand offer?
We offer the reader inexpensive books, written by informative
authors, in a format that is readable by Windows and Apple PCs, and
most eBook readers (those using PDF files).
We offer the author a means to distribute their work, take home
the lion share of the eBook's sale price, and at the same time
retain all rights to publish their work anywhere else they wish.
