Via self-publishing, writers control book titles, book covers, book content (story and words), publishing, copyrights, and promotion.
But we also need to sell our e-books. To do this, we turn to Direct Sale Vendors. Direct Sale Vendors sell our e-books for a percentage of the sale.
Who are the top Direct Sale Vendors?
- Kindle Direct Publishing Platform (Amazon) — KDP
- Barnes & Noble ePubit Platform (Nook) — ePubit
- Apple iTunes Connect Platform (iPad) – iBookstore
By setting up an account with each of these Direct Sale Vendors, our e-books can be found on all three of these platforms. There are additional Direct Sale Vendors available, like Kobo for Canadian book sales, but these are the big three.
Getting started with each of these Direct Sale Vendors may seem like a lot, but it’s really quick and easy…
Over the next few weeks, we’ll discuss how writers can get started with these Direct Sale Vendors and hopefully answer any questions our readers may have. Selling e-books through a website and through Direct Sale Vendors provides us with the best of both worlds when it comes to distribution and maximizing our revenue.
