So where do I go for independent fiction? It used to be that I'd go look at Kindle direct or something like that, but I don't wanna give money to Amazon.
Where can independent creators sell/share fiction now?
@ajroach42 Libreture has a pretty extensive list of DRM-free book shops and author websites.
Not all "indy" (depending on how you define it), but probably a good place to start.
(Libreture's also a pretty cool site in general if you're looking for a Goodreads/Kindle replacement. Works great with Moon+ on Android!)
@ajroach42 most authors who self-pub on kindle also publish through smashwords (because smashwords publishes to every other ebook store)
however the absolute immensity of the catalogue + self-pub nature of it means there's a whole lot to sift through if you want to find something good
@ajroach42 the only place I'm aware of outside of amazon is smashwords, which has the additional advantage of also listing through amazon.
But I have no input on whether it's a positive or negative place to be. I know a lot of people who write the harder romance towards porn place there since Amazon loves to inconsistently apply rules regarding "adult" content.
