eBooks Live Forever

eBooks live forever

In the old world of physical books, printed on a printing press, you had a relatively short time to get that book out there and sold. Books went out of print, were returned or destroyed, and that was the end.

Guess what – eBooks live forever

You don’t have a deadline. Leave them available. It might not be hugely successful right away, but maybe later. That slow trickle of sales might grow. You might write a second, third or tenth book that hits the charts and suddenly people are clamoring after your early works.

Things on the web never go out of print.


The Internet is Forever

Related in some ways, remember also that “the Internet is forever”. If you have ever put it “out there”, it’s probably still available. Don’t publish, even on your private blog, something that you don’t want related to your reputation.
