Finding Your NOOK: Self Publishing on PubIt

As we continue on in the self publishing series, I'd be remiss if I didn't spend a bit of time on NOOK.

Granted, Kindle is currently dominating the ereader market, but NOOK is still a sizable aspect, and since publishing with PubIt is so easy, there's no reason to overlook NOOK.

PubIt's front page lists publishing as a 1-2-3 process.  And while it's not literally that easy, it's awfully close. 

At this point I've noticed something of a trend.  Places that publish ebooks expect the author to have a finished project ready to go.  Neither Amazon or Smashword offered cover art, editing, marketing, ect... for their ebook publishing platforms, nor does PubIt.

So, before heading over to PubIt, make sure you've got all your files ready to go.  NOOKs read mostly epub files.  (Just like Kindles read .mobi.)  If you don't already have an epub version of your book, no sweat, PubIt will convert your Word, HTML, RTF, or TXT files into an epub. 

I used my Smashwords .doc version of the story.  I knew it was a clean copy, and it went through the epub conversion swimmingly.  From what I've seen this is always the rocky bit of any ebook publication process.  And like with any other platform, the cleaner your base document, the easier this whole process will be.   

Next up, cover file.  Get your .jpg, hit the button, and off you go.

Once you've got that done, it's time to pick your categories and write your description.  Fill out your rights management documentation and tax information and you're done.  In twoish days, you'll have a book up for sale on Barnes and Noble for the NOOK. 

So, yeah, not quite as easy as walking and chewing gum, but not much harder.
