I think the most challenging thing thus far is figuring out how to change the files into an ePub file so that we can go digital. There are websites that can do it for free, yet there are people who will charge money to complete it.
I feel we have already spent a great deal so far with printing, ISBN and Barcode (not including setting up the business and website fees) so I think I am going to try to do this one on my own.
Watch this space!
Thank you very much, Mark, for my barcode and your great customer service! At (http://www.isbnbarcodegenerator.co.uk/ ) you can choose between three different styles of ISBN Barcodes for only £3.99. Contact Mark at mail [at] selfpublishingdirect.com.
Yes, there are loads of programs out there that you can download for free and do it for yourself for FREE. However, this company offers to do it for £3.99, test and check it as well as adding optional things such as your publishers name and price.
I am really pleased I went for it. Again, I know the whole idea of self publishing is to save money, but sometimes time is money. And, if I am spending loads of unwanted time on the computer then it’s worth every penny.
If you do go to other websites and download the generator for free make sure you check that it works! The whole purpose of having a barcode is so that retailers can find you!
