Self-Publishing Question: Print or eBook?

Filed under: eBook costs,Kindle Reader,Nook Reader,self-publishing,Wordpreneur — gator1965 @ 7:12 am

Eldon Sarte, creator of Wordpreneur, has hit upon a subject I have discussed in past posts: self-publishing…but from a little different perspective that made the old lightbulb turn on in my overworked brain (what I have left of it).

His article on using self-published eBooks to test the market first before doing a possible print version is short but thought-provoking:

After observing the consumer ebook market with the seeming success of the Amazon Kindle and the upcoming Barnes & Noble Nook, I think this brings up an interesting question for self-publishers. Namely…

Instead of first doing a “print” edition and then releasing an ebook version as an afterthought (the usual M.O.), why not do a Kindle/Nook edition first, test market the book on the dirt cheap, and then decide whether a print edition is worth the time and expense?

For many scenarios, this seems to make oodles of sense. The market certainly seems ready for this kind of approach, for most niches I care about anyway.
