        Hi, Ralph. Congratulations on your book! Some of these outlets will convert your Word document into an ebook for you, if that’s what you’re looking for. Smashwords has an automated conversion system (lovingly called the “meatgrinder”) that will do it for you for free. Others will do it for a fee, like Ebook Partnership. It’s worth checking out the different ones to see what they can offer you. 🙂

I’m an author, cover designer and formatter. One of my clients requested information on distribution through Smashwords and Createspace, the two I recommend highly, along with Amazon’s Kindle program. I appreciate you providing this list for my client! He has been talking to representatives with Xlibris and I’m trying to give him alternate info and save himself about $15,000! You list makes it easier for the self-published author to make the right choices on where to list their books. Thanks so much…

    Glad to help! There are a lot better options out there than Xlibris, hopefully your client will find one that works well for him. 🙂
