    Hi!

    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.

    Wow, I have written many short stories, over the years, I’m seriously thinking about self publishing. Your post is more than helpful . I had no idea where to start. Now, I have a direction. Thank you .

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

    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.
