My wife and I wrote Sell More Books! Book Marketing and Publishing for Low Profile and Debut Authors. I had no platform at all when I wrote my first book, yet a respected traditional publisher published it and it has since been translated into several languages and still sells regularly 18 years later. Since then, we've self-published several books which also sell well. We take our own experience and add it to the experiences of other successful low-profile authors to help authors choose which methods might be the most successful with their books.
I have sent u a friend request in hopes of a networking friend.i really know in my heart of hearts that i have the best book ever written i don't have money to get it published but all i need is someone to look at it and im the next Tyler Perry
I looked more into the color for eBooks thing. Butterflies & Hurricanes in Prague is approaching it two ways for Bare Knuckles Press. They are doing designs in color that still look good in black and white for standard eReaders, that way they don't have to do two versions of the file. Then for any designs that are a bit more adventurous they do a color version, then a simplified version for the black and white readers, which requires making two files.
I must say that the color does add something. There is a crime/noir book we just published called "The Bitch" up on Amazon, and in the free download you can see the creative chapter headings Butterflies & Hurricanes are making in an attempt to make eBooks more artistic entities, and just a side line.

Thankyou SO much Steve for the extremely appreciated and timely "gift". I'll send you a mail now. Of course, I'll write a review. Have you listed on Dan Poynter's newsletter review section for this book?
I would be very interested to get a bit of feedback from your wife about how SHE is approaching the book she is doing on her friend. It would be fantastic to "network", as I'm sure I need ALL the help I can get Steve. Thankyou again for your very kind offer of your e-book. I SO appreciate it. Carole
