PubIt! - Self-Publishing for the Nook

What is your ereader of preference? The Kindle? The Nook? Something else? Most people who have an ereader love it, defend, and swear by it. And that’s great! Everyone should have their opinion of the best product and to tell others how they feel about it.

For a self-published writer however, bias in where they release their written works is not an option. My works had been available exclusively on the Kindle, but now, thanks to Barnes & Noble starting their own self-publishing format for Nook, you can purchase the Miscorrection series on your Nook.

The name of the service is PubIt! This is a clever title, even if you could make jokes about it sounding very similar to something more offensive. Regardless of the name, this is another way for indie authors to get their books out there. And I am very glad this is the case.

It’s very important for an indie author to take advantage of whatever options they can to get there books in front of people. If you stick all your eggs in one basket, you are limiting your audience and exposure. The more places your book is for sale, the more likely you are to have sales. So do not let your preference in an ereader cause you to sell your books exclusively for one format.

The PubIt! system is much like the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) format. After signing up, you simply fill in all the information for each book you have such as the title, author, cover image, and the digital file for the book. This is then converted to the EPUB format, which is the format the Nook and most ereaders use for viewing books. An added benefit on PubIt!, when compared to KDP, is that you can add editorial review excepts to your books description. This is a great feature for those who have had web sites review their book.

Since I already had the first three books in the Miscorrection series formatted and ready for use on the Kindle, getting them onto PubIt! was a breeze. I had finished uploading and entering information Saturday morning, and by Saturday night all three of the stories when available to purchase.

It’s an easy system, and great for us indie authors. I appreciate that Barnes & Noble opened up to self-publishing on the Nook. I hope to expand even further onto other ebook stores in the future! And don't forget, you can get the first novelette in the Miscorrection series for free at the Miscorrection Ebooks button above.
