Good Monday morning! It’s chilly here in Georgia and great writing weather. Saturday I managed a little over 3600 words, even with cleaning the house and planting mums. It was a productive weekend, to say the least.
Ok, you’ve written your book, now it’s time to publish it. As a self published author, you have so many choices. I’ve talked to authors that only place their books on Amazon, which is alright if you just want to get in with the Kindle reader, but there are so many other places to put your book, so why not?
You may be new to the publishing world, so I’ll enlighten you on some places that are great for self published authors:
1: Amazon – without a doubt, most authors go here first.
2: Smashwords – This website offers a one stop shop. Your book can be placed with Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and a multitude of other places just through Smashwords.
3: All Romance Ebooks – They offer your book on their website and in many different formats.
4: Barnes and Noble – Through Nook press, but I usually just go through Smashwords to get here.
5: Kobo – Again, I use Smashwords to get here too.
6: Google Play – I have some of my books here, but I’ve never done well on their pages.
7: Createspace – You need to get your book into paperback form and here’s where you can do that.
8: Draft to Digital – This site will get you on a couple of different foreign site.
9: Apple iTunes – If you use a mac, then this option is available straight to the site, but again, I use Smashwords.
This is only 9 of the many sites, but it gets you on the road to discovery and if you spread out your wings, readers will find you.
I hope this helped. If you need help getting your book formatted or the word spread, let me know. Horseshoe Publishing helps authors get their books ready for these sites and Fresh From the Book helps you spread the word.
As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
