It’s a surreal feeling to be at this stage. After 20+ years of DREAMING of writing my own book and 2 years writing it, I’m less than a week from publishing it to the world!
This week I was focused on uploading all the relevant files to the right distribution channels.
It can get a little confusing but if you want to publish ‘wide’ rather than being exclusive with Amazon KDP, then you should consider distributing your ebook and print book with Ingram Spark.
Though Amazon has a massive reach, some retailers will only buy from Ingram.
I want my book to be available as wide and far as possible hence why I’m publishing with both Amazon and Ingram.
My book is currently being uploaded to the stores and the ebook will be priced at £5.99 and the print at £9.99. Surprisingly (or not) the margins on books are pretty slim. I had the option to price much higher but I don’t want the price to be the obstacle for my readers.
I wrote this book to help people and even if it helps just one person; gives them the courage to pursue their crazy dreams, then my job is done!
Remember, if you’re on my email list, you get a FREE advance copy of the book, hopefully by the end of this week!
Reviews from readers are the social proof that authors need so I would appreciate an honest review once you have read it. I can’t wait to hear your feedback 🙂
