I self-published my first book way back in 2002, when ebooks weren’t an option and printing on your own wasn’t cheap. I eventually landed a book deal but never left my self-publishing roots, as I decided to continue to self-publish, even with a book deal. Today, as I prepare for the release of my next nonfiction book, Connect and Conquer: Grow Your Business, Organization, and Career Through Online and Offline Relationships, I’m faced with deciding whether to go ebook only. In fact, I’m sooo tempted to go ebook only, and had decided to do just that. After all, everybody is reading ebooks these days, right?
As I considered more and more whether to go ebook only, I realized it’s not as simple as deciding to ditch the print version.
