If we’ve been asked one question more than any other, it’s “You give so many things away for free, how do you make any money?”
But a close second is, “When will you start distributing to Amazon?”
Your wait, good and worthy author, has come to an end!
Starting right now, Amazon joins the ranks of Draft2Digital’s elite list of eBook distribution channels, worldwide—alongside Apple iBooks, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble, just to name a few! Now you have a one-stop-shop for reaching the biggest and most popular eBook retailers on the planet.
The next time you log in, you’ll be able to add your books on Step 4 of the publishing process. Just edit your book and use the navigation at the top of the page to click directly over to Step 4, Publishing.
