The number of ebook distribution options is nearly unlimited. Independent publishers and authors may take on the work of distributing titles themselves directly through key channels like Amazon’s KDP and Barnes & Noble’s PubIt!. Or they may instead choose to go through an ebook aggregator that offers to handle placing ebooks into a much wider range of distribution channels. In this presentation, Michael Cader will outline the options available and the value proposition for each approach.
