On Publishing

Hardcover book gutter and pagesThe publishing world is bursting at the seams with opportunity, with authors finding hundreds of ways to build traditional, self-publishing (indie) and hybrid author careers.

While each person (or indeed each book!) may have a different path, I’m passionate about letting you know your options and the different paths to a successful writing career.

 

The Basics

 

KoboSelf-Publishing/ Indie Publishing (e-books)

If you are able (and truly it is easy) go direct to as many e-book stores as you can. You can upload your e-book files direct to Amazon KDP for KindleKobo Writing Life and Tomely. Then for distribution to all the other major stores go through Smashwords, who distribute to Barnes & Noble, the Apple store and a handful of others. Or if you want to go the easy route you can just use Smashwords to get into all the above stores, however this affects the amount of royalty you will receive.

Below are handy articles and audios to get you started.

When creating a print version of your book I would recommend Lightning SourceCreateSpaceLulu or Blurb. There are also many publishing services companies out there whose business it is to help writers self-publishing books. Some of them are great, but many others are scams and will rip you off with high prices, poor quality and contracts you should never sign. Please check out any companies with Writers Beware or Preditors & Editors first before choosing a publishing service.
