    Thanks for this useful post. I’ll take the liberty here to talk a bit about StreetLib: it basically does everything mentioned up here. In one single place. No upfront cost and a very little percentage on book sales goes to StreetLib. Which means we are vouching for authors: they succeed, we succeed.

    I hope you’ll take a look. StreetLib is a great place where you can write, edit, format, publish and sell independently your books!

    Awesome post. Thanks Lynn.
    I use proofreadingpal and unplag before every publication. But as one of my good friends said those tools only can help you to doublecheck the results they are not a 100% guarantie.

    I’d also like to make a suggestion, similar to StreetLib, is

    Pretty much exactly the same but they also do hard copy printing for small runs, you can literally make and order one copy if you wanted 🙂

    After, they can help you sell it etc through their site and Amazon.
