The procedure and processes involved in making your book available to the consumer are referred to as distribution. In the case of printed books, this entails sending them from the printer to a store or straight to the reader. The format of your book is the first point of distinction when it comes to book distribution. The methods used to get printed books and ebooks into people’s hands vary.

Fortunately, there are approaches to streamline the procedure and make your book available in all major shops in every format.
