I have learned a few things about getting ready to publish a book if you are Canadian. If you are NOT Canadian then stop reading this immediately or you may self-destruct! 🙂
- Canadians can get FREE ISBN numbers for each of your various formats of your book. See The Canadian ISBN Service System (CISS)
- Also check Getting Your Free ISBN in Canada
- Don’t try to convert your book to all kinds of Ebooks. Instead go to the free service at Smashwords.com and let them convert it into all Ebook formats for FREE!
- Don’t use multiple word processors as they each have their hidden markups which can conflict with each other. As much as I hate to admit it, it is easier if you use Microsoft Word.
- Don’t read all the free ebooks and think that you have ALL the correct details to change your text to an Ebook. I found that some of them are out-of-date even tho they were only one year old! Let Smashwords do it. They are always up-to-date!
[I may think of some others later. :-)]
