View Full Version : Setting Up A Poetry E-book

01-09-2006, 03:58 AM
Hi all,

I've been thinking about setting up an e-book containing poems of mine; I am in favour of this option because these particular poems are experimental and I am not even going to try and get them commercially published :)

I am not expecting to make money, I just want to get my name out there.

Should I try to find an e-book publisher? Or should I do it myself?

If I do it myself, does anyone have advice out there regarding marketing e-books in the field of poetry?

Thanks muchly.

Do it yourself. You already have a website, and paying someone else to do what you can do just as easily doesn't make sense.

My friend Rebecca del Rio has an e-book of her poetry on her site and it has proved very popular. http://www.rebeccadelrio.net/html/poems_by_rebecca_del_rio.html

Am going to hold off on e-book idea for the moment.

Have decided to bombard magazines and literary journals first. Can only try.
