In the self-publishing world, there are many different platforms on which you can sell your books. Most know about the uber-popular Amazon KDP, but what about the others?
As it turns out, there are over 55+ book retailers out there that sell self-published books like iTunes, Barnes&Noble, Kobo, and a whole lot more.
But formatting a book and submitting it to all the different platforms can be tedious work.
Thankfully, this is where book distribution services like Smashwords, Draft2Digital, and PublishDrive step in. These platforms will take your book and distribute it to a list of publishing retailers, control the analytics, collect royalties, and pay you in one lump sum.
This is incredibly efficient and helps to get your book out to more readers with little to no extra work.
Given that the three services are very similar, how do they stack up against each other? Which is the right option for you as an author?
