No experience but I wish more authors went wide rather than using Amazon exclusively.
It was difficult the first few times, but it gets easier. These are great articles for helping out, and I do like to see the up-to-date news. The publishing world is always changing.
Marking the links to go back and read. Great INFO.
What I appreciate about Reedsy is how carefully they research their posts. And I love their professional approach.
Once you know what you're doing and get in the groove, it's a piece of cake.
Amazon is easy peasy, the rest I have really looked at much. Probably should one of these days.
Everyones doing ebooks these days, not like years ago when I used to read novels in the hundreds. The best teaser is an ebook, that way you've got something to interest readers with at relatively low cost except for your own time.
Lots of points to consider.
Thanks for sharing these most interesting tips.
Great article! Reedsy has so many great pointers on their site.
It has created articles that have been researched and provide detailed information, which is a great help for writers.
