Who Should Publish Your eBook?


There are many choices to choose from when it comes to selecting an online publisher. The one thing to consider is: Do you also want a printed version? If you do, you have to look at alternatives, such as publishers or printers/distributors that can do eBooks and print books. You have to determine if you are doing a print run of say, 1,000 books or 5,000 books (price is lowered per unit when you print more) or if you want to go print-on-demand (POD), meaning print books can’t be found in stores, but can be ordered online.

For digital-only books, the following 14 epublishers should be considered:

·         www.kobo.com/writinglife
·         www.Smashwords.com
·         www.NookPress.com
·         www.kdp.amazon.com
·         www.blurb.com
·         www.bookbaby.com
·         www.trafford.com
·         www.lulu.com/publish/e-books
·         www.vook.com
·         www.scribd.com
·         www.ebookit.com

As you make a decision on who should publish your e-book, think long and hard about whether you want to go digital-only. Though an increasing number of books are published online only, the vast majority of books publish in multiple formats. The bestsellers and media hits are largely books with a print and digital component. To capture attention from the media and consumers, e-only is still not the best route. But it’s inexpensive and convenient.
