Well, good news!
I’ve begun the process of having my first non-fiction book, How to Use MailChimp for Beginners, made available for readers in other countries! First up will be the Italian edition and I see it’s started creeping onto a couple of retailers already. Awesomesauce. After that, I’ll have Spanish and French editions going up. Once I have some more of the links to the new book, I’ll make a separate page on the site here.
I decided to try out Babelcube and so far the process has been pretty easy and smooth. Luckily, I’ve had the translators asking me questions back and forth which has made the process quite a bit more interactive than I thought it would be. I was also pretty surprised with how quickly some of the translations got snatched up. I think I had 2 in under a week of posting!
Here’s a peek at the cover for the Italian edition:
Hopefully it’s a sign of good things to come and I’ll be looking forward to getting some more editions out there, in particular, German. It also bodes well for when I have my first fiction novel out.
I also finally got the paperback edition released as well! It took a bit longer since I used several images in the book. I opted to make all the images a full page so you could see the steps involved which also boosted the page count quite a bit. So for those of you who still like print, you’ve got no excuses now.
Have you used Babelcube? What’s your experience been like with sales? Are you on the fence about whether to use them or not? Let me know in the comments and maybe I could do a blog post about it if there’s enough interest.
