Where do you Self Publish Your Books?

April 18, 2016

In order to see your book all over the web, you should publish your book for Print and eBook!
We use Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) for our Book Distribution, as well as IngramSpark.

Expanded Distribution offers you the opportunity to access a larger audience through more online retailers, bookstores, libraries, academic institutions, and distributors within the United States. Expanded Distribution will also improve discoverability of your book across all the channels. Regardless of whether or not you include your title in Expanded Distribution, all CreateSpace titles can be distributed through the Amazon.com, Amazon Europe and eStore channels.

How does it work?

Most online retailers, bookstores, and libraries find books through purchasing relationships with large distributors. If your book is not listed with these distributors, some retailers may not be able to buy your book, even if a customer specifically requests your title. Through Expanded Distribution you can distribute and make your title available for order (this does not guarantee that your book will actually be ordered) through the following channels:

  • Bookstores and Online Retailers – make your book available to online and offline retailers such as Barnes & Noble and to distributors such as Ingram and NACSCORP.
  • Libraries and Academic Institutions – make your book available through Baker & Taylor to libraries and academic institutions.
  • Kindle Direct Publishiing – make your book available to certified resellers through our wholesale website.

Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing is always looking for ways to improve the distribution opportunities for our members so, from time to time, they may add or change the channels available through Expanded Distribution.

To publish your book as an eBook we publish it to the following:
