Please note there are specific tips you need to know when publishing your works to Ingramspark and another platform simultaneously.)

Step 14: Order a proof of your book

(After your book has been uploaded and approved for publishing, we suggest ordering a copy of your book to double check for errors prior to mass distribution.)

Step 15: Create your website

Website creation is especially important for promotional purposes. Even if you do not plan to sell books from your site, it is a great tool to have to market your project and promote yourself as an author.)
