Beer is Proof that God Loves Us

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”

-Benjamin Franklin

 The wise words of Benjamin Franklin still ring true today. There’s just something to be said a about an icy glass of brewed beer, beckoning the corners of your mouth  to rise in an upward slant. And with recent studies, there may be even more reasons to smile.

  • More than 100 studies also show that moderate beer drinking trims risk of heart attacks and dying from cardiovascular disease by 25 to 40 percent, according to Harvard research. Notice the key word, moderate.
  • It can build stronger bones! Research suggests pale ale is best, as it is richest in silicon (and linked to bone health).
  • Forget me not: Some studies prove that a beer a day can help with preventing Alzheimer’s Disease as it  lowered their risk of mental decline by as much as 20%.

Although there are many risks with drinking, and you are urged to consume its deliciousness with utmost responsibility, there are many benefits to offset the negative buzz it has been notorious for.

How to Self Publish an eBook with Amazon

Ok, so you just wrote a book and now you’re antsy to get it into the hands of readers across the globe – fast.

With our new ebook Humantics, we ran into some hurdles that impeded our publishing speed –  that’s why we’ve created this simple to follow guide to give you the proper tools to avoid obstacles and keep you light on your publishing toes.

First thing’s first. We’ve answered some FAQ’s that arose during the publishing process so you don’t have to:

FAQ’S

1. Do I need an ISBN to self publish my ebook on Amazon?

You DO NOT need an ISBN to publish to Amazon. Once you publish your book, Amazon will assign it a 10-digit Amazon ID # unique to the ebook. If you already have an ISBN, you will be able to enter it during the publishing process. Read more here.

2. Do I need a barcode to self publish my ebook on Amazon?

You DO NOT need a barcode to publish your ebook but you WILL need one if you want to sell it in bookstores and make it available to libraries and bookstores like Barnes & Noble. The largest book retailers, as well as many book wholesalers, require books with a bar code graphic symbol that displays the ISBN.

4. What are the royalties like on Amazon?

As of December 30, 2011 you can choose between the 35% royalty or 70% royalty program. Both have pros and cons, but you can pick the rate that will suit you the best by READING MORE HERE.

5. How should I price my ebook?

According to one of the most well-known online self-publishing companies, Lulu suggests that authors who price their e-books in the 99 cent to $2.99 range “sell more units and earn more revenue than those in any other price range.” We’ve noticed some authors making their ebooks available for 99 cents. Although that may bring in more downloads, if you’re interested in earning income, you may want to reconsider a higher price point.

After you publish your book and provide a graphic image for the cover, you will be given a custom URL which features your book, an option for customers to review the book, and general information such as price, page numbers, etc. EXAMPLE:
