Amazon Kindle seems like the obvious choice when it comes to publishing your eBook, but don’t forget about Barnes and Noble’s NOOK store.
I have added this as part of my eBook distribution funnel and have been happy with the results so far.
It is easy to publish on B&N NOOK platform. All you have to do is sign up for a PubIt! account, enter your information, upload your eBook in Word doc format, and you are all set.
The only detail that I am a little put off by is the fact that you earn less of a royalty selling on NOOK than on Amazon Kindle.
On Kindle you earn a 70% royalty if you price your item between $2.99 and $9.99. On NOOK you only earn a 65% royalty for the same retail.
Why Barnes and Noble would do this is beyond my reasoning. You would think they would want to be competative with the largest eBook retailer out there, Amazon, but at this time they are keeping a extra 5% of your money.
But the fact remains, it is best to get your eBook out to as many outlets as possible. This will give you the best opportunity to earn the most money and get the greatest amount of exposure.
Formatting is very important so people can read your eBook with ease. I use the same formatting as with Amazon Kindle and it works and looks great!
Good formatting is fast and easy if you know what you are doing. If you need help formatting here is a complete resource to guide you through step by step.
When your are publishing your eBooks, the more outlets you have the better off you will be so don’t forget about Barnes and Noble’s NOOK store as you put together your publishing plans.
