I am looking at e-book self-publishing online and would appreciate anyone's comments on their own experiences (FastPencil, CreateSpace, Smashwords, EPub Bud, Lulu, Qbit).
Hey Richtwf, I have no comments to offer on the subject but I am glad to see you back. Hope all is well with you cheers!!
Rich, I uploaded my books to Amazon Kindle and it's easy. So far no big bucks but at least they are on the shelf.
I've used lulu to publish perfect bound books and it was easy. Publishing e-books with them is easy too. You can even distribute e-books outside of lulu from what I heard.
Hi Sofs and hope you're well too. I am fine and all is well thanks. Hope to start writing again soon. Cheers!
Thanks for your reply. It must feel good to know that your books are out there for others to see. I am hoping to experience that too. Cheers and congrats!
If you are self-publishing an ebook there is no need to pay a cut of royalties to someone like Lulu. Just get a clean copy formatted, commission a decent cover, and upload.
attempted it, not a good experience for me, did not do well
I uploaded 4 books, including one for free. Everything went on well, now they are included in the premier list.
By self publish, I thought you meant publish it online yourself and sell it directly from your website. I know how to do that, but you may not like to do all the work needed to do it successfully.
I dabbled with it but it is a lot of work and takes some savvy of a variety I don't really have. I went back to submitting to small presses and letting them do all that stuff.
