In the Live Chat, Dan, Kevin, and Mark cover these questions:

  • How does Draft2Digital work with its retail and library partners for various promotional opportunities, and what do those platforms look for?
  • Formatting your own copyright page VS the system-generated copyright page option that D2D offers.
  • An overview of publishing your eBooks “wide” to all retailers VS being exclusive to Amazon Kindle.
  • The way that libraries purchase eBooks (the two main liscening options).
  • What’s going on with Draft2Digital and Google Play.
  • How can an author get their books onto bookstore and retailer shelves.
  • How Findaway Voices might change the landscape for audiobooks being available beyond Audible.

After the recording, Mark reflects on the importance of actually reaching out when there is an offer available to you as an author and taking advantage of it because you and your writing are valuable and worth it.

  1. Is the link regarding the video conversation a “reward” for attending the live Q and A? Or is it available all the time?

    Thanks for sharing about the Q and A. The answers were very helpful. I think one of the key takeaways is that if you have any technical issues contact support 🙂

    Mark, if you were starting out today and you only had one book and you knew nothing about any interfaces at all would you go wide or would you go the the Amazon?
