(UPDATE: Poll now added, please vote. Thank you, - Tabby)
Over these past few months, I have been involved in several different email exchanges with a number of prospective authors, each eliciting my advice on self-publishing erotic ebooks, and how I go about creating/formatting/uploading ebooks, the financial side of the business, cover making, etc.
I don't mind answering such questions, at all, but I am wondering if there is enough interest in these topics to warrant creating a separate page on this blog which would deal with the various aspects of the self-publishing business. I know there are many resources already available online that do a nice job explaining all of this (I use several of these resources myself), but few of them are specifically devoted to erotica and I think I can provide some personal examples to illustrate some of the basic concepts in action.
So my question to all of you is this:
Are you interested in me creating a detailed guide to self-publishing erotic ebooks?
Self-publishing is a huge topic, in and of itself, never-minding the various subtopics I could get into. So even a simple, basic guide will be quite time-consuming to write. And until I start, I can't really say just how I'd even do this; as one page, or as a series of individual posts, each touching on a particular aspect of the business.
So please let me know your answer in the comments. If I can get it to work, I'll also try to set up a poll for this question as well.
And feel free to add any personal suggestions/questions you have for topics you would like to see covered in the guide. Even if there isn't enough interest to warrant making a guide, I'll still be happy to answer your questions about publishing. :-)
