Publishing a book can be quite a feat, especially for a first time author. New mediums for publishing books are fascinating. One author (tech related) has published a book using Cloud Hosting
. She has done a variety of Multivariate Testing
to discover she may have a large potential audience. She plans to give the book away on the Web site, allow people to pay for a down-loadable form of the book, or order a print copy.
She feels that there will be enough interest generated online to generate real sales. What are your thoughts for this sort of model? Will it work or will authors starve?
