It’s already been a busy month, and there’s so much more to do if I want to meet my goals by the end of the year. I’m excited to see how things work out. I’ve imposed some deadlines, and started some new projects.
Three such projects are to get set up to sell my fiction books on Kobo.com, Lulu.com, and BarnesandNoble.com. It’s a process. I’m all ready to start with Lulu.com, but I’m hitting some walls with the other two.
First, Kobo.com needs the routing number for my bank (in order to pay me) but when I try to enter it their site tells me that there can only be 5 to 15 digits. Darn. Mine has more than that. So I have emailed their support team and we are trying to come up with a solution. I’m not sure how long this is going to take, but it may extend over my two-week time-frame.
In light of this, I decided to move onto Barnesandnoble.com. I figured since the other was stalled, I could get a head start with them. Then it wouldn’t really seem like I was behind. I’d just be switching the order I was doing them.
Great plan, huh?
Well, not so much. I have to mail them a w-9 in order for them to set me up with payments. Goodness gracious. It does say that I can upload books while I’m waiting, but I’d rather not start until I know everything is set payment wise.
I’ve been trying to locate information for author pages for those two places, but am unable to locate any information for either. Amazon gives you an author page, and Lulu gives you a storefront. I expected the same for all platforms, but I guess that’s not the case.
So, until everything is set up for those two sites (and I don’t know how long the processes will take), I’ll work on getting things added to Lulu.com – starting next week.
I’d wanted these three done before the end of February, because then I’ll be researching other places to sell the books. Research can be time-consuming. I’m still going to hope for this, but I’m not sure.
