Changing It Up

So lately I have been having serious issued with create space not sending a link to my email address. And I have tried several times. I have tried publishing my books in KDP but again having issues and email Amazon about the problem a couple of times but never heard anything from them.

Today I did something bold. I removed all of my books from KDP and I am taking a new tactic. This might mean more work but I think it will be worth it.

Remember Lulu.com and Smashwords.com? Well I am going to be publishing my paperback and hardcovers through lulu.com and my ebooks through Smashwords.com. I know this will mean more booklets to read to learn how format is to be done for each platform but I think it will be worth it. The only way to really know is to try my ideas out and see what happens.

I have worked with both lulu and Smashwords in the past and I have always enjoyed using lulu. Smashwords I would have some struggles with but hopefully it won’t be too bad this time around.

I’ll let you know if I hear anything from Amazon, but I’m betting I won’t.

So now I need to find out if I need a new ISBN for each of my books and if that means I’m going to have to change the titles as well. I may have to visit my writers’ group on Facebook and see what others suggest. Just comes down to using your resources.

If any of you have tried what I am about to delve into, would you let me know how things turned out for you? I would love to hear what came about.

Thanks and take care.
