I'm seeking some advice regarding the 2nd edition of my book, Essential Oils and Aromatics, from those of you who have read it, or those of you who use Kindle.
I am contemplating "self publishing" a second edition, as well as putting the file together for Kindle. I'm thinking that there might be some advantages to having it in an Ebook format, since it would be so easy to search for something. (My Kindle is only a week old, so I am far from an expert on its use!)
At any rate - I can put the documentation file that I used when writing it together for Kindle. And that same file would be the basis of the second edition. But I have some decisions to make, and would love input.
If you have the first edition (and a lot of you do!) are there areas that you feel I should have covered that were omitted? I know we have learned of a lot of new fixed oils and essential oils in the five years since it was originally written, so adding them is an obvious choice. But are there areas that I skipped that should be included?
Also...if you are a KINDLE reader. What I have so far is a text file. Because all I've read so far on my Kindle were books that I wanted and couldn't find locally, and it was faster to download than to order from Amazon. All novels; straight text. The question now is, with a Kindle book, should I include graphics? Photographs similar to those in the book. (The publisher retained copyright to the graphics, but I think most came from IStockPhoto and this time *I* would get to choose them!)
Two questions then: What should be added to the book and whether a Kindle edition should be illustrated.
