WHERE TO UPLOAD YOUR SELF-PUBLISHED BOOK
@jeremygratton, a fellow writer, asked me to make a list of all places where I upload my self-published books once they're ready. Ready for reading, that is. Reading, buying, being used as a doorstopper. Well, I suppose not a doorstopper, because we're talking mostly about digital books here, unless you want to crush your Kindle. Anyway, last year I've written a blog post about navigating self-publishing platforms, but it's a bit outdated, so I suppose a new post is due. On where you put up your glorious baby, your bloodied and checkered and dappled with tears tremolo of a soul, your all and everything and precious and...yeah, I know, I know. But we all feel that way about our books, don't we? I know I do.
Well then. Where the hell do you put it online after everything is said and done? (Or, rather, written and edited and proofread and formatted and stuff?)
On the shiny coruscated Internets, that's where.
Here, let me list places where I put up my books, and the reasons I do it, and how easy or hard it is, and what to expect, in a neat little list, and at the end of it I will tell you where I live and you will come to my house bearing gifts for all this time and trouble I have saved you. Deal?
