BOOK LAUNCH IN TWELVE DAYS!
I decided to publish my book through Draft2Digital.com. They take a 10% cut, but it seemed worth it to have them publish to all of the assorted stores for me–including libraries.
And then the cracks started to form in the service as I went into the actual process of publishing.
I won’t list the problems out here, because I don’t want to tarnish their livelihood. Would I use them again? No, not at all. I ended up with a superior product when I published directly through CreateSpace.
Now it is a done deal. I don’t want to switch horses this close to launch. I will be publishing my next three books through Draft2Digital. Maybe they will improve their service in years to come.
Starting with book 4, I will go direct to CreateSpace/Amazon and not bother with this silly stuff. But that is next year. This is all a learning process, right?
To make a very long story short, I will not have a printed copy of the book. I’m going all-in on the digital version. It is what it is.
