Adventure into E-Publishing
Only thing I wasn't happy with was the pricing structure. Since it is a short-short story I would have prefered to sell it for less than .99 cents, but that is the minimum price for all of the sites. There is a free option on Smashwords, but I haven't figured that out yet and how it would work with Amazon and BN price match program. I'd hate to have it free at Smashwords, but then charge on Amazon and BN. I also am not sure if Smashwords will send it off to other markets if it is free. I'm currently in the pipeline to be approved for the iBookstore and a few other retail markets Smashwords distributes for.
As with anything new, it's a fun and interesting learning process into the world of ebook publishing. Curious to hear from anyone else who is currently doing it or looking into it. I self-published the first edition of my guide book Horse Schools back in 2002 and it's amazing how much has changed since then.
