While the end of the holiday season is growing closer, the "How Do I?" season for self-published authors never really ends. We've produced three new BookBaby How To videos to help get you through the self publishing process.
Libraries have long been deeply rooted in local communities. By being active in events like Indie Author Day, self-published authors can leverage libraries as a free and community-centered approach to building and reinforcing their readership.
BookBaby's BookShop helps self-published authors unlock the full profit potential of Print On Demand by keeping books stocked 24/7/365, paying authors more per sale, and paying faster than the big online retailers.
Before millions of travelers grab their sun lotion and dust off their flip flops, self-published authors have time to get their books in front of this massive book buying audience. It’s truly the best time for you to self publish your book, and BookBaby is here to help you make it happen!
The longer your book is available for pre-order, the more time you have to send readers to Amazon and the other stores to accumulate orders. All these orders count as sales on your release date, giving you a good chance at cracking some top-100 best seller sub genre lists in sites like Barnes & Noble and Powell’s. Note: this is not the case with Amazon’s best selling list. They count pre-sales orders on the day it’s actually ordered, not all combined on the eventual release date.
