Ebook conversion and distribution program
Infinity Publishing, one of the best POD publishers, is now offering a new service to convert an author's existing published work into an ebook, assign an ISBN to the title, and handle all aspects of distribution for a one-time set-up fee of $199 and a royalty of 70%. For details, see their website at http://www.infinitypublishing.com.
Infinity's converted eBooks come with a quality guarantee that allows the author to approve a physical proof prior to their title being entered into marketplace distribution. Infinity eBooks will be compatible with Amazon's Kindle, Apple's iPad, Sony's eReader, HP's iSlat, Barnes and Noble's nook, Borders' soon-to-be-released eReader, Google's upcoming eBook platform, and other future hand-held electronic reading devices.

Book Marketing Magic
Two weeks ago, I sent out a sales letter describing my new multi-media
program on how to sell more books - like a pro. I've decided to give the
program a new name: Book Marketing Magic: How to Sell Your Novel,
Children's Book, Memoir, or Nonfiction Book Like a Pro. You can
read more about it at http://www.bookmarket.com/novelmarketing.htm
On May 27th, I created a brand new teleseminar where I described the top 9 ways to market a novel, plus two key ways to market children's books. All eleven points also apply to most other books, both fiction and nonfiction. This one teleseminar is well worth the cost of this entire program. And you can get the entire multi-media program now for only $127. Now only $48.00.
Note: To get the special $497 New York Times bestseller bonus, you must act by June 5th (deadline extended 4 days). Click here to order now: http://bit.ly/7qd4FC
