You're right. This is the next thing on the agenda for us now the poetry book's done. Thank you.

If you need any help, let me know. I sell way more ebooks than I do print books, and my print books are not available outside the US at this time, so the ebook helps me reach markets outside of the print distribution. I love Kobo books and buy from them a lot.

If you get your work up on Scribd and in Smashwords, you pretty much have all bases covered.

Thanks, Cheryl. My wife is going to take point on the e-book but I'll drop you an e-mail if we have any questions the article doesn't answer.

Smashwords has been a godsend to me. The number of ebooks I sell in relation to print make print almost an afterthought that I do mainly for my own enjoyment. Even a year ago, I never would have imagined being able to sell so many ebooks.

It's clear to me now, the Revolution will be downloaded.

Kristine, I hear that!!!!

I like having a print copy available, and do sell some from time to time. I also like to have a print copy for reviwers or for autographed giveaways and things like that, but in reality, print isn't 100% necessary for the self-published author.

I too like designing them, so I will always put out a print version, but that's just me.

Viva the download!!!
