My name is Mrs. D. and I am an author of children's books. Currently, I’m juggling many projects including several new books. I love to write. I love this beautiful language. I write because I have something to share. I write because maybe someday, someone in this world may need my experience. I write for one simple reason. I love how it makes me feel: free.
About the only thing that remains constant in e-book publishing is that it changes—everything from the services to marketing strategies. Here, I’ve attempted to round-up all the good resources I know of related to (1) how to publish an e-book, (2) finding the right e-publishing services, and (3) staying on top of changes in the industry.
I update this list periodically, and welcome suggestions on new resources to include. (Last update: March 12, 2014)
Smashwords. Authors often use Amazon KDP, then add Smashwords to hit all the other retailers.
BookBaby. Similar to Smashwords, but they offer a variety of reasonably priced packages and services. If you pay for a premium package upfront, you’ll receive 100% of net sales. You can also use the service for free if you give BookBaby 15% of net sales, similar to Smashwords.
eBookPartnership. Compare with above two services and see which fits your needs best.
There are other major e-book distributors available if you work with your agent or have a minimum number of titles, such as Argo Navis and INscribe Digital.
