I'm going back to KDP (since, like the Hotel California, you can check out but you can never leave) -- but not as Select.
There are many others, too.


  • Draft2Digital (another aggregator—goes to fewer stores than Smashwords, but has a slicker interface and faster response time).
  • OmniLit / All Romance Ebooks (same place, just different branches of the site; the latter is only for romance, obviously)
  • StreetLib (Italian aggregator for many sites you've not heard of)
  • XinXii (German; mostly aggregator; I've heard nonfiction does best there, but I'm not sure English does)
  • Google Play (can cause some issues with their discounting practices)
  • Drive Thru Fiction (for speculative fiction [sci-fi, fantasy, horror])


And I'm sure I'm missing some I'm familiar with, and even more I don't know about.
