Did you purchase an ISBN # (or already have one)? Please advise as to where I apply for one. I have seen many on line but do not know which ones are reliable. Thank you.

There isn't much point in an ISBN for most self-publishers, and there's even less if you're not buying and controlling the ISBN directly. An ISBN from a service provider like Book Baby or Smashwords will identify your books as published by them.
I would actually prefer a publisher be listed on my book.
If you want a publisher listed, then you need to buy your own ISBN from Bowker; much cheaper in a block of ten. But honestly, it's not going to help with sales. Libraries won't see it; book stores won't buy it unless a customer orders it.
