Publishing Platforms – 2

My thanks to those who commented on my last post. I have now unpublished both books from Amazon, although Amazon won’t delist them on the grounds someone might want to sell them second-hand through their platform. I can’t do anything about that.

I will shortly re-publish The Night Bus, probably on Lulu, although I haven’t definitely decided on that platform, yet. I’ll do a little more research, first.

As for Making Friends with the Crocodile, I am persuaded to have a go at finding a publisher for it. We’ll see how that goes.

  1. It’s not an easy world outside the big boys of the oniine world, and they’re all complicit in so much that is going wrong around us. I hope smaller publishers leave you more satisfied, even if sales/exposure aren’t that high.

  2. These posts caught my attention. I have one novel on Amazon. I plan to direct publish 2 more within the year. Initially, I thought Amazon was a publisher but now understand fully that they are simply the best known platform. Ambivalent about using them again but feel stuck there.
