    It can be done, Kathleen.  I personally don't know how, because I haven't published my ebook yet, but if you contact hubber, Shadesbreath, aka, novelist John Daulton, he can probably advise you on the process.

    Good luck!

    Yes, you can publish on both platforms, but you might want to check out Smashwords.com; Smashwords will publish and distribute your ebook in a variety of formats, including Nook, for free; it charges a commission when it sells a book for you. It doesn't do Kindle, so you have to publish the Kindle version on Amazon.com yourself, and you can't participate in the Kindle KDP Select program if you're also on Smashwords (the KDP program insists on a period of exclusivity).

    Good luck!

    Book baby publishes to both nook and kindle, as well as kobo, scribd, itunes and a whole bunch of other distributors. It has up front costs, but it has a pretty good reach. I definitely recommend shopping around to see which ebook publisher is best for you.

    You can publish your book . If you have the money to pay for the package. It is about seven hundred dollars with Xlibris. There are other publishing companies you can use for less.

    To add another platform besides Smashwords, Booktango has given me excellent results. You keep 100% of sales and they distribute to most major ebook distributors and from personal experience, their publishing platform is easier than Smashwords.

      I will check this out; thanks! How do they manage to allow writers to keep 100 percent of sales? Do they have an upfront cost?

    You can publish on both. However, you may want to read all of their Terms and Conditions. I know that Kindle has a couple of different ways you can publish with them, and one of them requires an agreement not to publish anywhere else for at least 90 days or 6 months. It's probably the method where you can opt for more royalty on your book.

      The "Select" option on Kindle gives you the opportunity to take part in a "lending library" of sorts that allows Amazon prime customers to get free ebooks. There's a fund ebook publishers divvy up based on how many times their ebook is requested.
