Yes, you can. Amazon, Kobo, and a few others make it easy to self publish. The downside is you’ll be competing with numerous poorly written and poorly designed books on these platforms. How do you stand out?

Amazon has 3.4 million books online and it’s growing at five books per minute, according to 2018 statistics. To be successful, you now need a good level of professional support to stand out from the crowd.

An International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is required on all books recongized for sale. Having your own bar code may indicate a more professional writer. 

At Writers First, we have a bank of ISBN numbers and will provide one at no cost to our clients.

For print books, which are around 36% of the market, you can sell directly on your website or via our partner book store. 

For eBooks, we will help you publish to Amazon, 24symbols, Baker & Taylor, Barns & Nobel, Kobo, OverDrive, Playster, Scribd, Tolino.
