Tips on Self-Publishing

Sites to spread the word about your free ebook

Free ebooks have become one of the many marketing tools used by self-published authors to promote their work.

Below is a list of ebook sites you can use to increase your free ebook distribution and reach new readers. Some authors use the list to promote the books that they’ve set free during the Kindle Select Promotions.

The original Free eBook Listing Sites Checklist was started by Christopher Tarwater and is maintained by me. You can use the handy checklist to keep yourself organized while doing your promotions.
