The long way round

Success of sorts

Well, I finally did it. My Sudoku series has made it onto Amazon in the USA, UK and parts of Continental Europe.

I have been creating these puzzles since 2010 and have a library of over 1200.

This has been an interesting excercise. The final stages were incredibly easy, making it abundantly clear that I had gone the long way round.

Like many bloggers, I would like to share my experiences. I would like to describe the easiest route, only that was not the route I took. In order to share, I must try again. In March.  Wish me luck!

The long way round

After some Googling on the subject, I found an article by a successful author on free publishing. So I clicked her link and followed the easy steps to get my book in print. Only at the end of the process did I realise that I had published in India.

Then there was this great free site in the USA. The cover design tool was fantastic and if you get there via a referral link, you should get your proof copy for free. The distribution options never seemed to be available and I eventually gave up.

Twitter exposed me to many successful self publishers and their preferred print-on-demand publishers. From there I found myself on what seemed to be just another site turned out to be the easiest way to get your book on the Amazon platform. The site is CreateSpace and is an Amazon company.
