In addition to your traditional publisher, it’s important to get your book out there as widely as possible. Why not take advantage of all three major ebook formats? These companies are in competition, so will push your title harder for knowing customers can acquire the title elsewhere.
To get started, in no particular order:
- Visit Amazon’s Kindle at Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP).
- To publish on Apple’s iBook, go to iBook Author.
- Barnes and Noble’s nook (or styled NOOK) can be found at NOOK Press.
Ironically, the largest company (Apple) has the least market share of books at this point, but for how long? Most likely this occurred because Apple’s main focus has been music through iTunes, while Amazon and Barnes and Noble got into the ebook market early. Amazon’s Kindle, of course, remains the biggest player in devices.
Finally, each company uses slightly different formats for its ebook, but the process is much more streamlined today. Why consider your book done until the ‘big three’ ebooks are available?
