I started uploading ‘The Emissary’ to e-book vendors last night.
I feel its premature to sound the horns and all that. I’ve no idea how long Pubit will take to process the e-book. However, sometime after midnight – I uploaded ‘The Emissary’ to Barnes & Noble’s Pubit.
The reason I’m not crowing: it can take 2 months to get an e-book actually available on B&N.
That’s right – TWO MONTHS.
So there would be, IMHO no more foolish action than to start plugging the poor book before it was actually available.
The last e-book I uploaded to Kobo took 3 weeks to process. Another place where you don’t want to upload at the last minute before you start advertising.
Smashwords, while painfully slow to pay – is usually good about getting the e-books available all but instantly – if you can get passed the AutoVetter of Meatgrinder.
Amazon – well – yes, it’s faster, however there are SO many e-books this one may never make a splash.
So I’m doing this a small step at a time. See if I can get the turtle-slow vendors in place first.
You DO know that I want to shout this from the rooftops, right?
I’m being SO restrained – it’s like a scene from 50 Shades of Tie Me Up and Spank Me.
